Sense Labs

OverviewSuggest Edit

We are happiest creating products for people’s everyday lives. The only thing better is working with a great group of people. Luckily, we get to do both. Sense Labs was born from the simple idea that people should know what’s happening in their homes. We track calories, footsteps, miles per gallon, budgets, and rewards points — yet it’s astonishing that we know so little about the place where we spend so much time. Energy efficiency and home automation begin with information. We built the Sense home energy monitor to provide people with information about their homes in the simplest, most useful way possible. We are deeply data, mobile, and consumer-oriented. We brought advanced speech recognition technology to mobile phones including voice search, voice text messaging and dictation, and voice-enabled virtual assistant technology. Our products are used globally in Samsung and other mobile phones and in Siri before its acquisition. Now we’re putting all our energy into helping you better understand yours.
