SNUPI Technologies is a sensor and services company focused on home safety, security, and loss prevention. Our customers use our devices, in connection with our monitoring service, to discover and alert themselves when a hazardous event occurs in their home.
SNUPI sensors are small, wireless, and easily deployed anywhere in the home where hazards might occur. Our sensors are maintenance free, and, unlike anything else on the market, function continually without battery replacement for more than ten years. Our technology platform is extensible into a wide range of hazards including water, smoke, heat, mold, humidity, methane and others.
SNUPI Technologies has licensed the underlying technology from the University of Washington and the Georgia Institute of Technology for exclusive use.
Founders of the company include co-inventors of the underlying technology Professor Shwetak Patel of the University of Washington, Professor Matt Reynolds of Duke University, and University of Washington doctoral student Gabe Cohn.
Dr. Patel is an Assistant Professor in the departments of Computer Science & Engineering and Electrical Engineering at the University of Washington. In 2011 Dr. Patel was awarded a MacArthur Fellowship —the so-called "Genius Grant". He previously founded Zenzi, Inc., an energy monitoring solution that was acquired by Belkin, Inc. in 2010.
Dr. Reynolds is the Nortel Network Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Duke University. He previously co-founded ThingMagic, Inc., an RFID systems firm. Dr. Reynolds has been issued 10 patents and has over 20 pending.
Gabe Cohn, a doctoral student in the UW Electrical Engineering department where he is advised by Professor Patel, is the recipient of many awards including the Madrona Venture Group Top Research Prize in 2011 and Microsoft Research Ph.D. Fellowship.
The company is led by Jeremy Jaech, a serial technology entrepreneur who was co-founder of Aldus (makers of PageMaker desktop publishing software) and Visio (makers of business diagramming software) where he served as CEO from inception through the company's IPO and eventual sale to Microsoft.
