Senteri Background


Senteri was founded in 2014 upon contracting with a regional insurance carrier to develop a smart-home platform capable of addressing specific perils while providing consumers valuable tools to stay in touch with their properties. The Senteri solution continues to be market driven incorporating the feedback of multiple insurance carriers into its product line. Senteri is forever innovating and adapting to bring the best possible solution to its clients.


Before establishing Senteri, its two founders spent over five years designing and developing an auto telematics platform for Usage-Based-Insurance (“UBI”). Their company, Evogi, became a leader in the UBI marketplace achieving numerous long-term contracts with major insurance carriers.  Invaluable experience was gained during this time frame meeting the rigorous demands of the insurance industry while providing value-add products to policyholders.


Senteri has leveraged this recent experience to build an even better platform for the smart-home market that enables carriers to take advantage of this emerging high-growth market opportunity in the best possible way for long term success.
