How does Sentry work?
Sentry works by sending pictures of your prints to a local computer, where a machine-learning algorithm is used to detect print issues and signs of potential fires. If Sentry identifies potential problems, it can notify users with images and warning messages. The detection can also improve over time as Sentry collects more data to enhance the computer vision model. By running locally, there is no subscription fee, and minimizes network load. Sentry is also more secured and robust as the images are not shared externally to 3rd party cloud platform.
Sentry cannot connect to Google wifi series and Eero series routers, if you are a user of these two routers, please purchase carefully temporarily.

- win10 64bit
- MacOS 10.14+
