ADS-B receiver with CO detector

Sentry is a compact, affordable ADS-B receiver specifically made for ForeFlight. In addition to popular features like ADS-B weather and traffic, Sentry also includes a carbon monoxide detector to warn of dangerous conditions in the cockpit. No larger than a deck of cards, Sentry packs long list of features into a small size, but still offers 12 hours of battery life.

Features:

  • Subscription-free weather in flight
  • Dual band ADS-B traffic
  • Built-in GPS
  • Backup attitude information (AHRS)
  • Carbon monoxide alarm
  • Pressure altitude sensor
  • Weather replay
  • 12-hour battery
  • Connect to ForeFlight via WiFi (5 devices)

Integrated Weather Replay

With onboard memory supporting up to 30 minutes of FIS-B data, Sentry saves animated radar and other weather so data is available as soon as you connect. Turn off your iPad screen and save battery when not in use.

Carbon Monoxide Detector

A first for portable ADS-B receivers, Sentry provides a built-in carbon monoxide sensor and alerting system, with an audio and in-app alert when CO concentration reaches hazardous levels. The LED indicator also provides a visual indication of CO levels.

Synthetic Vision

ForeFlight Synthetic Vision provides a backup glass cockpit on your iPad that can help you stay aware of your position and surroundings in normal and emergency operations. Combined with Sentry, Synthetic Vision provides super responsive pitch and bank in addition to terrain and obstacle depictions. Simple calibration supports mounting Sentry on the left window, dash, or right window.

12 Hour Battery Life

Sentry’s efficient power usage allows 12 hours of continuous operation on a single charge, providing non-stop situational awareness for the long haul. Recharges using included USB-C cable.

Fast & Reliable Mounting with Quick Release

Sentry’s quick release mechanism means you can attach and remove it in under a second. The popular RAM® suction cup mount ensures a long-lasting seal and high heat tolerance so you can leave it in the plane between flights.

Compact Form Factor

If you’ve got room for a deck of cards in your aircraft, you’ve got room for Sentry. Large enough to not get lost under the seat, yet small enough that it doesn’t block your view, and the internal battery makes charging simple and straightforward. Measures 2.25”w x 3.25”l x 1.25”d.

Easy Firmware Updates Through ForeFlight

Updating Sentry’s firmware is a non-issue thanks to fast over-the-air updates through ForeFlight. When an update is available, ForeFlight provides one-tap installation that finishes in seconds.

Note: Requires ForeFlight version 10.2 or higher.

Does exactly what it is intended to do.
Works great, have not had any issues or hicups with it thus far. No way to test the CO2 alarm, guess its working, has not went off so thats a good thing! The battery life is excellent. The AHRS works well, takes getting use to watching that page in foreflight. The main thing is its great for traffic! Love that part! Geo referenced plates for IFR is so valuable as a secondary source of info.

Sentry Simple
Simple set-up; suction cup mount is solid; leveling was more or less automatic; GPS quick to lock on; traffic appeared immediately. I confused myself over the built-in Wi-Fi network which was quickly resolved by phone call support from Foreflight (super!). With my equipment, IPAD Pro 10.5 (w/out Wi-Fi) and Foreflight Basic Plus, the Sentry connection removed need for my phone's Wi-Fi hotspot and use of a Garmin Glo 2 for gps. And, the built-in battery (and its long charge life) deleted the need for/reliance on battery backups. Price was right (as compared to other options). Dislikes: None (so far).

ADS-B in receiver w/ AHRS
Great product with superb battery life. I used it for 18 hrs of ferry flying from coast to coast and never had a battery life issue flying all day. I charged it, installed it, and operated it continuously for more than 10 hour a day. Flawless performance and superb increase in situational awareness using with ForeFlight. This product used in concert with ForeFlight is the best Situational Awareness advancement in aviation I've seen in more than 30 years of professional flying.

Like my Sentry ADS-B Receiver
My little Scout ADS-B unit kept going offline dropping her signal numerous times. Noticed it happening to numerous other clients for no obvious reason. Knew it was time for a change. My fellow CFI recommended the device. It does what it’s designed to do. Very dependable.

Fantastic Product
Love using this product every time I go flying. Done some flying with a flight instructor and we both can connect Foreflight to the Sentry. It provides great information on traffic, weather, and GPS information.

Sentry ADS-B
Peace of mind is important when flying single pilot IFR and the ForeFlight Sentry provides a tool necessary to add that extra layer of safety to every flight. I highly recommend this unit to any pilot looking for a portable ADS-B unit. This one couples that capability with attitude, weather and a carbon monoxide detector to boot!
