About

OVERVIEW

Dome Alert is the most simple and affordable solution to offer you 24/7 Professionally Monitored protection from the most common and costly disasters in a home - Fire, Flood, Freeze, and Carbon Monoxide.

 Dome offers you the same 24/7 protection and all the benefits of traditional home security systems while saving you thousands of dollars in set up costs and monthly fees and setting you free from long term contracts.

HOW IT WORKS

Dome's sensors work with the existing equipment in your home. When a sensor is triggered, an alert is immediately sent to both your smartphone and a professional monitoring station.
Fire/CO Sensor
The Fire/CO Sensor listens for audible alarms from your Smoke/CO Detectors. It can distinguish the difference between a Smoke alarm and a CO alarm. And because most Smoke Detectors double as a CO Detector and all detectors are interconnected, all you need is one sensor to cover your entire home.
 Flood/Freeze Sensor
The Flood/Freeze Sensor detects water and alerts you before leaks become floods. The sensor is triggered when water touches the copper nodes on the bottom of the sensor and an alert is sent.

 It also has an internal thermometer that sends an alert when temperatures drop below 41 degrees. Allowing you to take action before pipes freeze.

 SAVE HUNDREDS ON SET-UP COSTS

The genius of Dome is in it's simplicity. We leverage the power of the cloud, your WiFi, and low-cost equipment to provide protection at a fraction of the cost of traditional in-home alarm systems. Unlike current solutions that require replacing the equipment in your home, we use technology that works with your existing equipment - giving your current devices smart home capabilities and saving you hundreds of dollars.

 RESPOND FASTER TO MINIMIZE DAMAGE

When a sensor is triggered, Dome will immediately send you mobile, text and email alerts allowing you to respond promptly and minimize damage of these events.

 PROTECTION THAT PAYS FOR ITSELF

Because you can’t always be there, the Dome system is always connected to a professional monitoring station. When a sensor is triggered, the professional monitoring station will call you and your emergency contacts until the incident is resolved. Even dispatching emergency responders in the event of smoke or carbon monoxide.

 Our professional monitoring is through UCC, the nation's premier central station. UCC currently provides monitoring services for over 200,000 homes and businesses across the United States. They are UL Listed, have earned a Five Diamond Central Station rating, have bilingual operators, and have been in business for 30 years. Feel confident that with Dome, you are great hands.

HIGHLIGHTED FEATURES

Unlike traditional alarm companies that lock you into long, multi-year contracts, Dome offers you month-to-month service. Have the freedom to deactivate and re-activate your system at any time, with no termination fees.

SET-UP IN 15 MINUTES

Set up requires no tools or wiring. Simply download the app, connect to the Hub, and follow the app’s simple step-by-step instructions to place, link, and test sensors.

SET IT AND FORGET IT

You will never have to arm/disarm your system. Once activated, Dome is constantly communicating to monitor and protect your home at all times.

PERFECT FOR RENTERS AND HOMEOWNERS

Because Dome can be set up and packed up on your own, has month-to-month contracts, and doesn’t require Homeowner verification, it is the perfect solution for both renters and homeowners. No matter where you dwell, Dome's got you covered.

HOW WE COMPARE

 REWARDS

 OUR TIMELINE

PLEASE HELP SPREAD THE WORD

Kickstarter, your feedback will help us and your support will enable us to reach our goals and beyond! Please support our campaign and help spread the word!

 

Risks and challenges

We have the structure of the company founded, the branding, manufacturing and production is set. Our biggest potential hurdle will be ordering equipment to keep up with demand, taking into consideration shipping time from manufacturer. Our goal is to generate enough capital from this campaign that we are able to order a little bit of a buffer surplus of equipment and use the money generated from monthly monitoring fees to stay ahead.
