Sensing the Invisible Danger: The Necessity of Deploying Residential Gas Detector in Buildings



Natural gas is widely used as the main energy in residential buildings. However, numerous accidents caused by gas leakage have been reported worldwide. Gas leakage not only damages properties but also cause people’s death every year. It is necessary to deploy residential gas detectors in residential buildings to detect gas leaks and avoid potential danger. In these circumstances, Milesight GS101 LoRaWAN® Gas Detector is designed to detect natural gas leakage in houses, apartments, and other residential buildings and avoid potential damage before danger occurs.

Why Milesight LoRaWAN® Gas Detector

Milesight LoRaWAN® Gas Detector features a gas alarm threshold as low as 8% Lower Explosive Limit (LEL) that quickly alerts residents to an emergency. The LED indicators and buzzer alarm double secure the safety of residents who are at home. And the gas detector is also able to send alarm notifications remotely to building managers’ phones or laptops via Milesight IoT Cloud. Besides, the Milesight Gas Detector is equipped with a self-test function, which supports the device to ensure its normal status.


By installing Milesight LoRaWAN® Gas Detectors in each kitchen area of apartments, houses and other residential buildings, once the devices detect natural gas leakage, they will alert residents of danger in a buzzer with an 85dB warning sound. In the meantime, since the methane gas detector for home use is equipped with relay output and solenoid valve output, it could control external appliances. For example, the detector could turn on the fan and turn off the gas valves automatically once detecting the gas leaks.

Besides, through LoRaWAN® technology, Milesight LoRaWAN® Gas Detector is suitable for massive deployments in residential buildings. Once the natural gas level reaches the threshold, the gas detector will immediately send out the alert to Milesight IoT Cloud and alert the building administrators immediately. It provides greater flexibility for building managers to monitor and control the devices remotely and reduces potential safe accidents.
