Led by Yekini Wallen-Bryan, PreeLabs Limited is steadily building its portfolio of devices and programmes for remote monitoring and control.

The group of entrepreneurs at PreeLabs, whose training spans electronic engineering, last year introduced, Power Pree, a smart energy switch that enables households and businesses to control their energy consumption.

The PreeLabs CEO is reporting that the reception for Power Pree has so far been “massive”.

“The types of problems we have, include supply issues because the list of persons making requests for them have been extensive,” he told Young People in Business.

PreeLabs is now testing its latest product, Water Pree, having begun full-scale operations, in addition to generating sales late last year.

Currently, in the testing phase, Water Pree seeks to help consumers to track their water consumption at any given point in time.

Water Pree will also enable persons to track leaks in their homes and businesses; monitor the water levels in tanks, and remotely turn off pipes.

PreeLabs also recently applied its expertise to help combat the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

For instance, in collaboration with Citizens Response Jamaics Initiative, Pree Labs has deployed 3D printed face shields for healthcare workers, donating over 1,000 of the products to local health authorities and hospitals.

PreeLabs has also been working on building emergency ventilators.
