REO Sentinel, Jacksonville, Fla., has announced the introduction of a technology that offers "an inexpensive but high-value solution" to the problem of monitoring and maintaining presale and real-estate-owned properties. Rich Rollins, chief executive officer of the company, said the device, also called REO Sentinel, was developed in conjunction with loan servicers and a property inspection and preservation company. "For the first time, lenders and their property preservation managers can have real-time views into what is occurring in every defaulted property they are trying to market thanks to a small, patented device installed in each house," Mr. Rollins said. ".... [REO Sentinel] can detect many types of gases, the presence of smoke and high humidity conditions, and even takes a photo of anyone entering the property." The company can be found online at http://www.reosentinel.com.
