Real-time Avalanche


The Snow Sentinel is a dedicated real time remote monitoring device designed for the early detection of any snow movement in all its forms, giving advanced warnings and alerts to any changes in conditions.

Smart Skin Sensor

Located within the body of these units are exclusive SmartSkin Sensors, a consolidated and proprietary technology developed by InSensus Project , which detect any movements in the substratum in the unit measure “micro strain”, this measurable data is transmitted real time to servers for continual monitoring

8 years autonomy

Housed within the section which remains above ground are the electronics and power module which can provide supply for up to 8 years continual monitoring before battery replacement.

Ready to go in 30 min

An immediately operational “stand alone” multifunction sensor, which can be “screwed” directly into the snow cover or inserted into predrilled holes when conditions become harder. Installation time and activation is less than 30 minutes.
