Senet Wins Awards, Tells IoT Story

By Paula Bernier February 08, 2017

North American LoRa-based service provider Senet tomorrow at IoT Evolution Expo, collocated with ITEXPO, will be presented with the Business Impact Award from TMC and Crossfire Media. It will also share its work with Trimble that helped it win that award.

The award recognizes organizations that have successfully leveraged IoT to solve business issues, launch a new service, and/or create new revenue opportunities. Senet was conferred this accolade for its work to help enable water utilities to do remote measurement and monitoring of water, wastewater, and groundwater systems. It is working with Trimble, which provides the Telog 41 Series IoT sensors, to make that happen.

Senet was also recently the recipient of the IoT Evolution Connected Home and Building Award.

Will Yapp, Senet’s vice president of business development, spoke with me yesterday at IoT Evolution Expo in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., to provide more details on what the company is working on.

Senet started as a full solution company, supporting a home heating fuels application that is now delivered widely, Yapp said. This application enables oil and propane companies to lower their delivery costs by $100 to $150 per customer per year by avoiding unnecessary truck rolls, he explained.

While Senet put together this total solution to help show IoT prospects what’s possible with connected devices, sensors, and LoRa networking, going forward the company plans to focus on the network part and to partner with companies like Trimble that are delivering specific applications.

Senet also provides connectivity for a fast food restaurant application that helps these operations dispose of their grease. It’s doing a lot in the smart cities arena. And because LoRa is good at penetrating buildings and earth, it’s also ideal for basement-level and other underground applications like pest control, said Yapp.

Senet also is expanding its presence in the agriculture space. The company is already employed in soil content and moisture monitoring in California. Expect to see more of this kind of thing from Senet in the Corn Belt, Yapp said.

The Senet LoRa network is now available in 23 states and more than 225 cities (with populations of 50,000 people or more). That covers 50 million people. It continues to build out its footprint. And where Senet doesn’t have network, it can make one available via its partners within 60 days.
