IoT Industry Success Story in Fairfax
IoT Company Sees Skyrocketing Growth with Fairfax County Headquarters
As COVID-19 tracking intensified in 2020, a Fairfax County company was ahead of the curve.
Senseware integrates sensors, devices, systems and equipment into one IoT ecosystem to provide real-time actionable data. The platform is currently used for indoor air quality, energy management, HVAC control and other solutions. Senseware recently released a new pathogen sensor that identifies the coronavirus that causes COVID-19.
“Our solution will provide communities with the protection and peace of mind they need to find a new sense of normalcy,” said Serene Al-Momen, PhD, co-founder and CEO of Senseware.
Senseware is the first company to market real-time continuous particulate matter sensing with enhanced accuracy. With the new technology, users will receive alerts when airborne biological threats and ventilation dead zones ripe for virus contagion are detected.
With the pandemic, the need for indoor air quality monitoring has greatly increased in all public spaces including, schools, office buildings, sports arenas, restaurants, and beyond. Senseware prides themselves on meeting and exceeding the WELL Building Standard.
Founded in 2014, Tysons-based Senseware reaps the advantages of a Fairfax County HQ.
Proximity to the Greater Washington area lends itself to streamlined strategic alliances, Almomen said, noting that Senseware is used in all 112 Washington area public schools. Connections to three airports ease travel to the U.S., Canada, Middle East, South Africa and South America, regions where Senseware conducts business.
Relationships with universities and access to “great talent” are two more Fairfax County business perks, Al-momen said. The area boasts a workforce of 600,000-plus, and more than 60 percent of the county’s population holds a bachelor’s degree.
