Cocoon 2

Less than a week since its launch on Indiegogo, UK-based Cocoon’s crowdfunding campaign for its self-titled smart home security has already secured its initial $100,000 thanks to its 412 backers.

Cocoon 5According to its campaign, the Cocoon is smart home security device that combines HD Camera, Motion Detection & SUBSOUND Technology to sense activity throughout your home. If the device thinks something unusual is happening, you will immediately receive a smartphone notification so that you can take action and feel safe.

Not only does it keep you safe from burglary or home invasion, the Cocoon also learns who should and shouldn’t be there. The company promises there is no need to set the device when you come and go, as it will learn what’s normal in your home. The creator shared that one Cocoon can protect a whole home. Our unique SUBSOUND Technology senses activity in other rooms and on other floors without the need for any additional sensors. It is also pet-friendly and tunes itself to your environment to avoid false alarms so you can trust it to know when to alert you.  With Cocoon, you can check in on your home at any time.

Sharing more details about the device, the Cocoon team stated, “Whether you’re at home, at the office, or lazing by the pool, Cocoon is with you. With intelligent notifications and HD video on your smartphone, Cocoon lets you see when something’s wrong and control the response. Sound the siren, call the cops or a neighbor – you decide. There’s no need to set it as you come and go, Cocoon uses smartphone location to know who’s at home. Cocoon has no sensor batteries to replace and you can take it with you when you move.

“Cocoon gives you the peace of mind that your whole home is safe without lots of boxes and detectors, it’s clever enough to know who should and shouldn’t be there. Cocoon learns your schedule to activate protection whilst you sleep and with night-vision you can rest easy knowing that it was just a ‘bump’ in the night. ”

Key features of Cocoon include:

  • Siren: Very loud alarm designed to disorientate intruders.
  • HD Camera: Wide-angle night vision lens providing reliable high quality video streaming and recording.
  • Privacy Lighting: Full color LED lighting when recording or streaming.
  • Microphone: Records high-quality audio when Cocoon is activated.
  • Motion Detector: Pet-friendly, but smart enough to trigger recording when needed.
  • SUBSOUND Detector: Powerful combination of sensors that detects activity in other rooms on other floors.

In regards to privacy, the team noted, “We understand how incredibly important your personal space is. From a team with a strong security background, SSL and firewalls are just the basic layer of Cocoon’s data security.

Cocoon 4“When you’re at home, Cocoon indicates remote viewing by another user with sound and pulsing LED. Remote viewing can be easily disabled until you go out, so you’re always in control. Cocoon only pushes video to your smartphone if there is an unusual event detected or you request it, meaning everything stays locally (in your home) unless it absolutely needs to be uploaded.

Video and other data is encrypted both at rest and during transmission (256-bit AES) and decryption keys are only held on your registered mobile devices for added protection. Our cloud never sees your encryption keys, guaranteeing that your data can never be leaked.”

The campaign is set to close on December 7th.
