New Contractor Monitoring System Monitors House Conditions

MADISON, Wis. - Santa Fe is introducing a new contractor monitoring system called the Santa Fe Sentry. The new system connects a series of remote sensors located in a customer’s crawlspace or basement to a smart phone app that will allow contractors to monitor for conditions such as humidity, water leaks and temperature that can create an ideal environment for pests, mold and poor indoor air quality.

This system will allow contractors to provide reports that show customers how conditions in their crawlspace can create an environment that is harmful to both their home’s structure and their health, and help the contractor differentiate their services from the competition, while building a case for crawl space encapsulation and waterproofing services.

The system utilizes the customer’s WiFi signals for continuous monitoring of hundreds of locations from any Apple or Android smart phone. Santa Fe Sentry allows the contractor to respond to issues as part of their normal service schedule, unless conditions require immediate attention, the company says.

Andy Johnson, product manager for Santa Fe, says “The new Sentry monitoring system will provide proof of the importance of crawlspace encapsulation and waterproofing, and is an important element of Santa Fe’s comprehensive program that helps contractors create new revenue by providing complete services for their customers.”
