We’re excited to announce that we’ve closed a $14M Series A from Shell Technology Ventures and Energy Impact Partners in addition to our previous seed investors. We wanted to extend a big thank you to our team of enthusiastic early adopters. Your insights and ideas helped us reach this point.
In addition to our funding announcement, today marks the launch of our Sense Android App, and solar compatibility for iOS. These were the top two feature requests from our community. Solar compatibility for Android will launch this October.
Today we're also debuting our product video. And...we are finally pulling back the wraps on our new visual design, which you may have already caught glimpses of. Many of you reached out on Facebook asking for a video with more product information. We hope you’ll have as much fun watching this as we did making it.
What is the funding for?
This round of funding is a big vote of confidence in our product and mission, and will enable us to grow much more rapidly. It means we will be able to:
- Continue to expand our device detection capabilities so that we can provide even greater insights into your home.
- Increase our production volumes, so that we can get Sense to all our customers and partners who are eager to use it.
- Build out more app features to address the many ways in which you want to use Sense.
At Sense, we believe that all homes should be more intelligent. In a world rich with data, it’s striking that we have so little information about our homes. We built Sense so that we could know what’s happening in our homes, and help make them safer, more efficient, and more reliable.
After three years, four hardware iterations, three software versions and two apps later; we’ve come along way and we’re excited about the future.
