Monitored Natural Gas Leak Detection

Natural gas explosions have been devastating for residents and first responders. With the development of advanced, ten-year battery powered technologies to sense natural gas leaks without false positives, the National Fire Prevention Association has now created a standard for these natural gas detectors.

This paper briefly explores the history of detectors, the advance of wireless technology and specifically, LoRaWAN technology, the benefits of monitored detection, the move of states towards allowing wireless technology and the move in New York State towards making all gas detectors monitored.
