Lund, Sweden. July 6, 2016 – (this is a copy of the press release to announce the launch of Strips in the U.S. For the release with web addresses, please contact Neal Greenspan)
Soon customers in North America can also enjoy the benefits of not seeing the sensors designed to protect their windows and doors. Strips, a magnetic sensor so thin it can often be mounted “invisibly” between the window/door and its frame, has received FCC approval. Launch in the U.S. is expected this month with Canada and Mexico following closely behind.
After a successful crowdfunding campaign in 2015 which saw Strips achieve 280% of its goal and a launch in European markets in the fall, Sensative is excited to now begin offering Strips in the number one smart home market, the U.S.
Today’s smart home sensors are often difficult to mount, hard to use and intrude on the look and feel of the user’s home. Strips’ unique design changes that. Plus, with a proprietary battery, as well as hardware and software designed to be as energy efficient as possible, Strips’ battery will last up to an industry leading 10 years in normal usage.
Leading tech blogger Julie Jacobson said of Strips, “Even though security sensors are slimming down, they’re still ugly when placed on doors and windows throughout the premises, especially where there are banks of windows in a modern home. Start-up Sensative offers an invisible sensor called Strips that hides between (most) doors and windows and their frames. Somehow, this company managed to fit a Z-Wave radio and a battery lasting up to 10 years into a longish strip a mere 3mm thick.”
