Gas Safety Solutions
New York is a leader in enacting laws to combat the dangers of gas leaks, fires and explosions in residential buildings. New York State Senate Bill S3705, currently in committee, requires all temporary and permanent homes in the state to install an operational combustible gas detector that wirelessly connects to the gas company. In support of this new legislation, Senet is conducting field trials with multiple gas safety solution partners and a major multi-utility service provider to develop and deliver gas leak detection and automatic shutdown solutions designed to improve safety and reliability in regional natural gas distribution networks.
Senet has also partnered with New Cosmos USA, a global leader in gas detection and gas alarm systems, and ProSentry, a provider of building monitoring solutions, to provide gas security solutions for New York City apartment buildings. To learn more about these initiatives, register for an upcoming webinar with speakers from Senet, ProSentry, and New Cosmos USA: LoRaWAN Sensors and Fire Protection: New York City’s Gas Detector Act and How It May Affect Gas Safety Nationally.
