What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

Connect Your Home Alarms for a Safer and more Secure Home

Our home is a safe haven where we create and keep some of the most cherished moments of our lives. We try our best to keep it safe and secure, and that's why most homes have multiple alarms such as Smoke, Carbon Monoxide and Security alarms.

But these home alarms don't help when you are away.

Smart alarms are better but very expensive to upgrade (more than $400)

Security companies like ADT still charge over $45/month for monitoring

Meet Homsecure

Homsecure is a powerful smart device that will connect all your home alarms and provide notifications when you are away to keep your home safe and secure.

Where are we now?

We have been working extremely hard since June 2016 to make sure that Homsecure is not only a concept but an actual product. We have already developed both an iOS and an Android app, a cloud platform on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and successfully manufactured our final design prototype. Our friends and family are already using Homsecure, all with great results! In the process, we have established partnerships locally and abroad to enable us to successfully manufacture Homsecure.

Risks and challenges

Wavepod Technologies may be a young startup company, but the co-founders are veterans with a combined experience of over 35 years in design, development and delivering the final product. To minimize risk we have taken the Homsecure concept through the design process to an actual product that's running in our friends and families homes with great results. We have partnered with manufacturers who have already proven to make high quality builds at reliable time tables. We believe that we can deliver a very high quality product on time that will exceed expectations.

All complex projects have many pieces that must come together to make it work. We control many of these factors (design, platforms, components, etc) and have gone to great lengths to make sure we have chosen the proper paths. There are however, some things that we can not control, for example, delays in shipping due to weather or parts availability. On the manufacturing side we are extremely careful with whom we chose as our partners and have already worked with most of our vendors in the past...but things can happen. If any issues arise we plan on being completely transparent as to what the issues are and how we plan on solving them. We will issue timely updates of all our progress via our website, social media and Kickstarter.
