On October 10, 2018, Alert Labs Inc. (“Alert Labs”) was acquired by Florida-based HVAC distributor Watsco, Inc. The two companies have jointly developed a remote air conditioning monitoring system allowing homeowners to receive alerts if unusual activity occurs. Like other Alert Labs sensors, Sentree uses a cellular network and does not require a separate data plan agreement, on-site internet, or WiFi connection.

Alert Labs, headquartered in Kitchener, Canada, manufactures water and flood monitoring sensors.

Osler, Hoskin & Harcourt LLP represented Alert Labs with a team consisting of Chad Bayne, Justin Dharamdial (Corporate) Allison Di Cesare (Employment & Labour) and Dov Begun (Tax).
