At Sentri, we’re on a mission to create safer and smarter homes by developing products that re-define the relationship we each have with our homes.

Based out of San Francisco and Taipei, our founding team was borne out of a shared belief that our homes should and — could — be smarter.  Prior to Sentri, our team developed our business, branding and engineering chops working with some of the largest consumer brands in the world, including HTC, Acer, Asus and Microsoft.  Share this journey with us by telling us your thoughts on what a smart home looks like and say ‘hi’ at hello@sentri.me
