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.

About

A fire intelligent camera that can see smoke in case of wildfire occurrence even from a distance of 10 miles. The SmokeD camera is designed especially for consumers, homeowners - easy to install, easy to use and very helpful for you and your neighborhood. 

Thanks to the SmokeD camera you will know about the occurrence of wildfires even before a fire team knows. Even more - you will be able to inform a fire team about the danger automatically. Just install the SmokeD camera on your home and join the community involved in wildfire detection.

                    

 

 

 

 

            

Artificial intelligence is able to detect even traces of smoke from a camera image. Each photo sent by SmokeD Camera undergoes a thorough analysis. Should any smoke be detected, the system automatically notifies the user.           

            

            

            

Immediately after a danger is detected, SmokeD Alerts mobile app users receive an alert on their smartphones. The app is used to verify notifications sent by the community as well as to keep the camera owners and the fire services informed about possible incidents.           

Each notification is sent to over 3,000 mobile app users. They make up the whole community that verifies the alerts and helps our artificial intelligence to “learn” about the area under the SmokeD Camera surveillance.

 

            

                       

Smoke detection is possible thanks to the Camera being programmed accordingly and adjusting it to fit the entire system. Moreover, its GPS module, gyroscope, and compass enable the SmokeD Camera to accurately pinpoint the wildfire on a map.        

    

    

    

    

            

 

            

           

 

Each SmokeD Camera will be delivered with a set of handles allowing for simple installation. The handles will help you to easily fix the Camera onto any flat surface or to a pole.

            

A prototype shows how to use the final version of camera.

In order to be able to see the view from your Camera in the SmokeD Alerts mobile app you just need to plug in a power supply and ensure a steady Internet connection. From that moment, our artificial intelligence software conducts analyses and is ready to detect smoke or a wildfire.

See the stages of installations on prototype example:

1. To start the analysis you just need to plug in a power supply and ensure a steady Internet connection – nothing else! Simply connect the Camera and set it in position.

2. After the Camera’s position is set, the device will begin monitoring the surrounding area in order to detect smoke. It operates all day and sends all the necessary data – such as pictures or GPS and gyro data – to the SmokeD server every two minutes.

Risks and challenges

Since it is our first campaign, it already stands as a challenge in itself. We have been developing our smoke detection system for years, during which we got a chance to meet high class specialists able to bring our camera from blueprints to life in accordance with set prerequisites. The prototype satisfies all the needs of our future camera, so it all comes down to creating a proper and durable casing. Thanks to the cutting-edge technology as well as our skilled team, we will be able to offer you sustainable, reliable, and functional cameras.

Throughout the last couple years, we have managed to tackle and overcome all risks connected to smoke detection, and we are more than sure the entire system works properly. Our cameras are the last puzzle piece necessary to complete a fully-functioning, large-scale video surveillance system.

The main goal of our cameras is to present the system to the society in need, as well as to further broaden the surveillance areas. Hence, we dedicate this product to backers from all around the globe. It might pose a minute hindrance with respect to delivery logistics, however, we will do everything we can to deliver our product on time. As you are reading this, we are already deep in negotiations with logistics experts who assure a timely delivery.
We promise to inform our backers about our project development and every important detail concerns camera's production stages.
