UW startup SNUPI on KING5 TV

Untitled“Whatever you call it – the Internet of Things, connected homes, smart homes – Jacquelyn Jaech knew it would become one of the big themes from the recent International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas …

“Jaech and her husband, SNUPI CEO Jeremy Jaech, hope WallyHome ends up as the must-have hardware for homeowners looking to spare themselves the expensive grief of mold and water damage. The $299 kit includes six sensors that monitor moisture, humidity and temperature around the home. SNUPI (Sensor Network Utilizing Powerline Infrastructure) uses the existing wiring in homes to create a wireless network, all controlled by a hub that plugs into a standard outlet.”

Jeremy – one of Seattle’s most successful serial entrepreneurs – is a CSE alum. SNUPI’s technology comes from the lab of UW CSE and EE professor Shwetak Patel.
