Building on its successful Reg A+ campaign on SeedInvest and the company’s first product, the Smart Vent System, Keen Home is now focusing on air purification. It launched its second product in August, the Smart Filter product line, which combines with a subscription service in order to garner potential for recurring revenue.
What exactly is this Smart Vent System?
Keen Home is making the core systems of the home smarter, starting with the world’s first smart home air vent.
The company’s first product, the Smart Vent System, controls a home’s heating and cooling airflow on a room-by-room level, which studies show results in improved comfort and efficiency.
Keen Home believes the software platform will serve as an innovative proactive home health dashboard while offering partners data for lead generation, actuarial insight for risk pricing, and control for peak load management.
The company notes that it has raised $2.3 million in revenue by selling its first product and has shipped 30,000 units to date. The Smart Vents Systems can be found in Lowe’s and Best Buy stores, as well as via online distributors like Amazon.
The Smart Vent System combined with the Smart Filters is meant to;
“Protect your home and family from allergens, germs, and other air pollutants… [It] easily clips into your Smart Vent’s removable faceplate to provide better air purification and odor neutralization for your whole home instead of costly stand-alone units or impractical sprays.”
Co-founders Nayeem Hussain, Ryan Fant, and Will McLeod explained how Keen Home products are different from others out there on the market;
“Currently, there are no truly intelligent air vents on the market. Our product installs in a few minutes and a system of just 4-8 Smart Vents can achieve much of the benefits of a multi-thousand dollar professionally-installed damper system. Moreover, our Smart Vents are wirelessly connected and can work together to make the smartest decisions for your home’s airflow. Finally, the Keen Home app gives users the ability to take control of their airflow and also gain insight into the health of their HVAC system.”
The company is also collaborating with Google’s Nest and Samsung’s SmartThings. It is also moving forward with integration with Ecobee’s smart thermostat next year.
The company previously raised funds from Techstars Ventures, Galvanize Ventures, R/GA Ventures, and American Family Ventures.
The co-founders also appeared on Shark Tank last year and received the support of Robert Herjavec who remains an advisor to the company.
