Solutions for a brighter future

New Dawn Labs creates solutions. We bring new technology and fresh perspectives to combat the issues that are holding you back from achieving your goals.

New Dawn Labs, LLC believes there is a gap in the market between the services of typical hardware and software vendors and that of widely respected organizations such as the University of Dayton Research Institute (UDRI) that can provide engineering support in applied research. New Dawn Labs provides software and hardware expertise that allows customers to scale up and out quickly and safely with experience professionals they can trust.

The New Dawn Labs vision is to create a platform that allows its users to collect, manage and visualize their data for their business process and equipment through modern methods and technology.

In 2010, The University of Dayton Research Institute (UDRI) built one of the first plug-and-play open source systems for the DoD. After years of success integrating that framework on multiple platforms for multiple exercises, the US Army reclassified the technology as Distribution A, allowing it to be used by the public. The UDRI team was then able to take all lessons learned and create the Renaissance Industrial Internet of Things (RIIoT) platform. With help from UDRI, the team birthed a spin-off company named New Dawn Labs; New Dawn believes there is no one-size-fits-all solution for leveraging technology for interoperability. Furthermore, a middleware layer that is protocol, data format, and vendor agnostic is a must-have. These are the strengths of New Dawn. The New Dawn team are experts in creating and building dynamic, lightweight middleware layers and standards. New Dawn has the expertise and skills to create the glue that ties existing sensors and systems together using open-source software and cutting-edge technology.

For a background perspective and to better understand New Dawn Labs’ past experience, below are examples of the work the New Dawn Labs’ founding members have performed during their tenure for UDRI.

Work With Us

The New Dawn Labs vision is to create a platform that allows its users to collect, manage and visualize their data for their business process and equipment through modern methods and technology. This will come to fruition by:

  • We’re becoming a regional leader in Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) deployment, configuration, and integration for local manufacturers and facilities.

  • Growth outside of the Dayton region into a national presence that demonstrates the ingenuity and technology that comes out of UDRI and Dayton, across government and commercial markets.

Our Experience

Here are some examples of the work the New Dawn Labs’ founding members have performed during their tenure for UDRI.

Delivering high-quality production systems

We have a special relationship with the University of Dayton, which gives us a large development stack, backed by decades of success stories. We are focused on delivering high-quality production systems on time and on budget.  When we add our world-class support and installation/manufacturing ability, we are truly the one-stop-shop for success.

Our Workforce



We use an Agile development process to deliver high-quality products in small increments with lots of client feedback.


Hardware Integration

From 100% custom design to commercial off the shelve components, we can create and install a solution that works for you.


24/7 Support

We offer world-class support. You know you will always have someone there to help, we leverage the very best local, US-based talent.

NDL’s Platform Solution

Our platform facilitates the secure exchange of data between third-party sensors including: energy, lighting, water/plumbing, HVAC, fire safety, and security all while leveraging advanced digitization, big data, and machine learning capabilities.

Our software and hardware are designed to address the entire sensor ecosystem. With easy integration of devices (even most 3rd party), it delivers the performance and data-throughput needed for anything from one small building to a large, complex multi-site enterprise. We leverage advanced cyber-resilient systems and protocols to keep the entire system safe.

Platform Features

  • A truly mobile experience: access building data anytime, anywhere on smartphones, tablets or laptops

  • Real-time alerts:  email, text, smartphone push, 3rd party system

  • Convenience:  large campuses and global enterprise in one view

  • Operational efficiency:  intuitive design saves time and labor

  • Facility Management:  RIIoT allows not only monitoring, but control as well

  • Preventative Maintenance:  advanced AI/ML for exceptional preventive maintenance  

  • Communication:  fast, reliable, secure, and ideal for high bandwidth data throughput

  • Economical:  low deployment, operational, and maintenance costs

  • Flexibility:  architected to accommodate change

  • Hardware:  can utilize cloud or on-premise services


Our next-generation visualization tools enable customers to better manage and optimize building assets with insight, more engineering efficiency, and increased cybersecurity and compliance certifications.

  • Enhance productivity and effectiveness with our simple and intuitive user interface

  • Personalized user interfaces and dashboards

  • Attractive, scalable vector graphics


Enhanced Dashboarding (dynamic charting, geo-referenced assets, deep data mining, and cutting-edge mapping visualizations), Data Storage (leveraging the latest in Hybrid cloud technologies to deliver the best-of-breed in on and off premise storage), and Engineering Efficiencies & Tools.

  • Comprehensive reports, trends, alarms, notifications & schedules 

  • Quick informed decision making driven by RIIoT’s ability to collect, summarize, and present building data in relevant and usable ways with our advanced reporting tools

  • Combat building issues, like mold, by monitoring and controlling real-time humidity or other water infiltration

  • Look for unusual water usage, which could indicate a water leak (water heaters, faucets, pipes, and leaky toilets)


With the command and control (C2) module, one can not just view the building data, but actually, automate the interaction between various building subsystems either from the Dashboard, or using the smart control logic, making your building truly smart giving the best tenant experience.

  • Get away from temporal settings and use real-time building data to control temperature, O2/C02, humidity, lighting, music, etc.

  • Turn off water supply remotely or even automatically if things start leaking  

  • Lock and unlock doors remotely

  • Set all thermostats with a click of one button
