Inovonics, a Leader in Commercial Wireless, Turns 30

In the three decades since its founding, Inovonics has pioneered the use of wireless in a number of markets, including intrusion detection and mobile duress.

LOUISVILLE, Colo. – Inovonics, a provider of wireless sensor networks, is celebrating the 30th anniversary of the company’s founding.

In 1985, the FCC passed regulations allowing the civil use of radio bands previously reserved for industrial, scientific and medical use. One year later, technology entrepreneurs Don Hume and Steve Koonce founded Inovonics in Boulder, Colo., to leverage the newly-available military-grade frequency-hopping, spread spectrum RF technology.

Now on its third generation of wireless technology, Inovonics has established itself as a leader in the commercial wireless industry, according to a press release. In the three decades since its founding, Inovonics asserts it has pioneered the use of wireless in a number of markets, including intrusion detection in commercial security, utility submetering in multifamily housing, mobile duress in both security and senior living, and a host of serial and IP-enabled interfaces that facilitate the integration of Inovonics devices into a wide variety of application specific hardware and software solutions.

“What started 30 years ago with a handful of innovators in a one-room lab, has grown to an international enterprise with over 10 million devices installed,” Inovonics President Mark Jarman says. “We’re all tremendously proud of this milestone, and especially because we’ve achieved it through our commitment to the same core beliefs upon which the company was founded. We call them our four Cs: Competency, creativity, commitment and collaboration.”

Inovonics will celebrate the 30-year anniversary on Aug. 19 by hosting an open house at its headquarters, based here, for invited guests and local community leaders.
