The AquaSentinel is engineered with all stake holders in water security in mind. It is easy to install and maintain and offers a short learning curve.

The AquaSentinel is a water toxicity monitor which utilizes green algae as a biosensor without the need of chemicals or consumables. It autonomously measures the inductive fluorescence curve of algae existing in surface water to create a thumbprint used to detect a broad spectrum of toxins. The sensor has an integrated pump and a unique system of valves to ensure the continuous operation and analysis of water. The system can be set up in such a way that when a toxin is detected a water sample is set aside for further testing.

AquaSentinel Water Security Sensor

Water Security Management Platform

The sensor connects with SecureWaters Water Security Platform transmitting all the data gathered by testing the water samples. This data is sent over the internet through a secure connection provided over a wired Ethernet connection (LAN), a Wireless Ethernet Connection (WiFi), a Mobile Data Connection (GPRS, Edge, 3G, 4G) or a Satellite Connection (Iridium).


All data is gathered and analyzed in real-time. When toxins trigger an alarm, a watersample is stored in an external storage bag. At the same time a text message or an email is sent to notify the user of the incident. The current state of the sensor and historic measurements are monitored on a web-based management dashboard or with an iOS, Android or Windows Mobile Phone App.

Installation and Maintenence

The standard housing of the sensor has an IP67, NEMA 4x  ingress rating. Other housings, such as explosion proof are available. The mounting of the sensor is easy. It can be mounted to a pole or to a wall and waterlines can be connected easily with a press-to-connect fitting. The system runs on a 12 Volt power supply which can be supplied by a normal 100-240 AC adapter. It can also run on or in combination with an alternative power (Solar/Wind/Fuel Cell).
