Though natural gas is considered relatively safe, aging infrastructure and outdated standards put people and residential properties at risk. According to a 2018 report from the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), an estimated 4,200 house fires per year start with the ignition of natural gas, causing an average of 40 deaths.
Established over six decades ago, New Cosmos Electric Co., Ltd. was the first company to release a residential gas alarm to reduce the risk of explosions. Today, with over 70 million alarms sold, they’re continuing their mission to maintain the highest safety standards with their innovative DeNova Detect Natural Gas Alarm, a battery-powered wireless natural gas alarm featuring cutting-edge sensing technology and long-lasting reliability.
Best-in-Class Design Partners for Amazon Sidewalk Device Development
With a strong commitment to safety, New Cosmos USA consistently invests in best-in-class partners for their development ecosystem. As an IoT engineering design partner with specialized expertise in LPWAN technology, Oxit is a critical research and development collaborator. Over nearly a decade of project work, Oxit and Silicon Labs have also established a strong partnership based on deep application-specific knowledge and unwavering technical support.
When Amazon Sidewalk soft launched, Silicon Labs supported Oxit as an alpha design integrator for customers looking to pilot early devices. When considering which of its own customers would be a good fit for integration, New Cosmos USA emerged as a strong contender with a long track record of investment in building public trust through innovative and reliable design.
