IoT Sensor Detects Potential Household Hazards

Silicon Labs and Notion have collaborated on a battery-powered IoT smart home sensor that detects water leaks, smoke, carbon monoxide, temperature changes, and motion across doors, garages and windows. The Notion Sensor is built on the Silicon Labs Wireless Gecko platform providing an energy-friendly wireless system-on-chip (SoC) solution with flexible multiprotocol connectivity. Notion introduced its smart home monitoring solution in 2017. Thereafter, major insurance companies, including State Auto Insurance, Travelers, and Hippo, have partnered with Notion to encourage homeowners to take a more proactive approach to home maintenance and monitoring by offering the easy-to-install Notion starter kit.

Designed with multi-functional sensors, the Notion kit allows homeowners to detect multiple incidents at once in different locations throughout their home. By installing Notion, homeowners can receive a smart home discount on their home insurance policy with participating insurance companies, helping to reduce their premiums and providing peace of mind.

Powered by two AAA batteries, each cookie-sized Notion sensor can be placed anywhere within the house with a peel-and-stick application. After connecting to a Wi-Fi network through a bridge, each sensor is up and running, and all monitored zones within a home can be viewed through a smartphone app. For more details, visit Notion and Silicon Labs.
