OneEvent rolls out humidity and temperature sensor

Back in March I talked with a software company, OneEvent, that showcased its cloud-based predictive analytics engine, OnePrevent, at ISC West. The company started by focusing on predicting fires through monitoring environmental sensors and now it is rolling out a new humidity and temperature sensor which will bring information into its OnePrevent platform. 

“When we rolled out the product in February, it was very much around the smoke alarm, the motion alarms, door/windows, and answering the questions of ‘Where’s the fire? Where did it start? Where is it going? And, where are the people?’” Dan Parent, OneEvent's chief operating officer and VP of engineering, told Security Systems News

“The algorithms that we put into place around those sensors are extremely flexible, especially around the temperature measurements that we’re reading from our smoke alarms,” he said. This lead the company to develop the new temperature sensor that also measures humidity. Specifically, the company was looking for “a very accurate, repeatable, resilient, economical sensor that can give us capabilities in other areas.”

OneEvent was rolling out a prototype for the temperature and humidity sensor around ISC West 2017 and now the sensor is fully available. 

Parent highlighted data centers as a potential market opportunity for the new temperature and humidity center, “One of the biggest problems in an IT data center—other than cybersecurity—is the health of their equipment. … They want to maintain a particular humidity level, and they want to maintain a particular temperature level.”

Other potential markets include Residential properties worried about moisture, indoor pool areas, apartment complexes, restaurants and walk-in coolers and freezers, OneEvent’s announcement noted.

The temperature and humidity sensor has capabilities in OneEvent’s fire detection analytics. “In all NFPA regulations, you have to maintain a particular distance between the cooking apparatus and where the smoke alarm is,” Parent said. “We want to put the temperature/humidity [sensor] right over the stove.” This would help the analytics engine understand whether smoke could be related to cooking.

“It’s incredible; the power of measuring the data and being able to couple that measured data to the individual who impacts the building to create the data,” Parent said. OneEvent's also has a multi-sensor smoke/temperature alarm, door/window sensor, multi-sensor presence detector and water sensor.

MOUNT HOREB, Wis.—OneEvent, a software-as-a-service company based here, developed an analytics engine that looks at environmental factors to predict when an event might occur. At ISC West 2017, the company will be discussing the software’s capabilities in the fire detection space.
