Sensative is a company that produces window and door sensors that are just 2,7 mm thin and have life expectancy of about 10 years. The purpose of these sensors is to keep track whether doors and windows in the building are open or closed. The company is based in Lund, Sweden, and it has already established important relationships with some Scandinavian companies. The next step for Sensative, however, is to reach international markets and launch a crowdfunding campaign this coming spring.
Company’s visit to International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas during the first week of January was in line with its agenda to look for partners and customers abroad. The goal is to build relationships with a big company that focuses on smart homes and home security so that they could help Sensative bring their product to the market. And so far the response was well beyond the expectations, from both companies and customers.
According to Sensative, their product is thinnest on the market which makes it concealable in window or door frames, a factor that is important for two reasons. First, such sensors would be hard to notice for burglars when breaching property. Second, easy to hide sensors will not interfere with home interior.
We have not seen any product at CES that is even close to what we have, and it’s a great feeling to see our customers’ reaction when we show our sensor, shares Fredrik Westman, Sensative’s sales and marketing manager, with 8till5.
Currently Sensative is working on testing and certification for their product. The plan is to launch a crowdfunding campaign in support of their product this spring and start sales in mid 2015.
