Hello, Sentinel!


Sentinel is an innovative water pressure monitor designed and programed by SMWD’s very own, Brian Harrison. The Fire Hydrant Monitor continuously monitors water pressure in a specific zone and communicates directly with SMWD’s state-of-the-art remote monitoring system, SCADA. It allows SMWD to help predict possible leaks in the system and troubleshoot customer concerns about water pressure.

The first Fire Hydrant Monitor debuted in 2019 at SMWD headquarters. Sentinel is version 3.0 with improved solar charging, battery supply, and an improved design to reduce vandalism. During the upcoming beta test period Brian will add an accelerometer and acoustic sensor for increased data collection. Similar units are available on the market but do not allow for remote monitoring and integration into the alarm system.

Welcome to SMWD, Sentinel! We appreciate our talented and innovative SCADA team.
