Stretch goal #2 (built in battery) reached!




we have reached our second stretch goal of $350,000! What this means is that your Sentri will not only come with our originally planned fully-integrated suite of sensors (temperature, humidity, air quality, motion, and light) and HD wide angle camera, but will also include an Ethernet port and SD card slot (our first stretch goal!) AND a built-in battery.

With just nine hours left in our campaign, please continue to help spread the word (Facebook, email, Twitter, etc.) for exclusive access to one of the very first Sentri units and help us work towards our final stretch goal at $500,000 of also including a touchscreen.

THANK YOU again for sharing in our dream of building smarter and safer homes — Sentri would not be possible without you!
