Red Dot
The intelligent gas detector Sensepoint XLC detects dangerous concentrations of toxic gases such as carbon monoxide, ammonia or methane in the surrounding air. It is used in places such as boiler rooms or underground car parks. The product development focused on an optimised user experience, from simple installation on the wall to mobile control. The detector connects via Bluetooth to a smartphone, where an app enables time- and cost-saving initial start-up, maintenance and management by a single person.

Statement by the jury

»Operating the Sensepoint XCL via smartphone is not only easy but also makes buttons and keys unnecessary, thus creating an appealing, minimalist design.«
