About this project

The Huum is a portable wireless monitoring device. These devices can be set up anywhere to provide info on what’s going on in your space. Simple functions and sensible flexibility built straight into this new home security experience. Expand your monitoring capabilities by simply adding a new device to your network. The ability to set up your security in just a few minutes makes Huum ideal for dorms, workshops, offices too. Just turn it on and place it down. Easy! Using mobile connectivity, Huum is meaningful peace of mind in the palm of your hands.

Every feature packed into each Huum device has been carefully chosen. We’ve made sure Huum is meets all your monitoring needs. An update is sent directly to your phone whenever a sensor detects a problem. Being able to connect with multiple smartphones means that everyone gets to know what’s going on.

 Powerful insight is just a tap away

With new NFC tap features, activating and de-activating alarms couldn’t be easier with android smartphones. With just a quick tap, you can set your alarm, change settings, and connect new devices to your network. No more annoying keypads.

Designing for the experience

We wanted to focus on a new way of experiencing home security, one that is easy and intuitive. Customizable options give Huum the ability to adapt to your specific needs. You also have options to change the way you interact with the device. This makes each Huum device capable of monitoring only what you need, where you need it.

Reliable Security You Can Afford

Huum was developed with the everyday person in mind. We understand that money shouldn’t be an obstacle for feeling safe. We’ve made sure that Huum will be an affordable product, with no monthly fees, so that you can keep security as a top priority.

Production Timeline

We're prepared to go full force upon successful funding. We've been very excited about getting Huum into your hands.

System Details

Meet Our Team

Our group at Good Robot has been working together on home monitoring system for over three years. We aim to strength the ways that technology can benefit people and make lives better. 

Risks and challenges

Our team has already brought multiple home automation products to market. From experience, we know that home connectivity can often be a challenge, and we've built a system that anticipates many of these issues.

Like many companies, we are vulnerable to supplier issues. Specifically, we have chosen hardware that's compatible with openWRT. However, as this is produced by a third party, it's possible that this product could experience supply shortages, or have changes that limit compatibility or creates firmware issues. To handle this contingency, we have designed our system so that it can be ported to other platforms if necessary. Also, while we have successfully prototyped the firmware, as well as a number of different circuit boards and sensors for our units, these will require a lot of additional work and testing to bring them to a production-ready state.
