About

Meet elephant door™ portable smart home security device that can protect you wherever you are. Install in seconds, scare off robber before he enters your place, control via app

Using unique Smart Warning System: anti-theft technology, elephant door™ can detect when someone’s attempting to break into your place before entry has been gained, switches on siren and alerts you in the process via mobile app

 The key features of elephant door ™ include:

  • MOBILE APP – receive round the clock notifications if your home is under threat, allowing you to react as quickly as possible
  • QUICK & SIMPLE – mount the alarm to the door you want to protect, download the app and you’re up and running
  • SLEEK & STYLISH – round black device fit neatly anywhere on your door, perfect for the modern home
  • INTELLIGENT – smart designed algorithms detect signs of intrusions before they actually happen
  • LOUD – Elephant Door ™ can emulate an alarm of 100+ dB
                    

elephant door™ uses intelligent sound, vibration and motion algorithms to detect an attempted break-in. Software based on neural networks analyze all the data and minimalize a risk of false alarms

Quick and easy to set up and dismount, elephant door™ is the perfect portable security tool for tenants who rent rooms (i.e. in dorms), apartments or for people who have to travel a lot. Universal mounting fits on any type of door

Integrated smartphone app notifies you of an intrusion so you can react quickly. Even if you’re not close to the apartment. From your application you can instantly inform the relevant services, family or your neighbor about the threat

Sleek and stylish design fits perfectly with the modern home, removing the need for large bulky white boxes. The case has been designed with the highest precision, so elephant door ™ can be a door decoration

Technical Specification 

How do the various sensors work in practice?

1. The accelerometer sensor – based on MEMS technology (Micro Electro-Mechanical Systems) – allows the detection of the level of measured acceleration in the gravitational field. Range of 0-2G, possible to increase to a range of 0-6G. A 12C digital interface with a frequency of 100kHz. Vibrations transmitted from the protected surface are measured, and these values are digitally conveyed to the MCU (microcontroller) for further processing.

2. The gyroscope – also MEMS, based on accelerometers with an integrated circuit built into the sensor (with noise equalization) – determines inclination in relation to the earth's acceleration vector. This facilitates the measurement of orientation changes in the room. 

3. Gyroscope determines orientation relative to the earth's magnetic field, perfectly complementing the gyroscope readout – the earth's magnetic field vector is perpendicular to the acceleration vector (a much more accurate measurement, eg. opening the door). The gravitational field is practically impossible to distort, while the magnetic field is very easy to disrupt, meaning that the "earth" component will be treated as noise.

4. The microphone – time-frequency analysis (spectral) enables the assessment of sound intensity, its character and reference to the source.

How does the device detect a suspected burglary?

All sensors work together at the moment of activation in order to classify the threat. The algorithms for classifying and assessing the likelihood of an incident have been researched and developed on the basis of analytic functions/ neural networks. In standby mode – low energy consumption – we rely on the accelerometers; following the detection of an appropriate level of vibration, continuous analysis mode is switched on; further confirmation of the threat activates the other sensors in sequence, which go into active listening mode.

Why did we implement ANN (artificial neural networks)?

ANN had already been implemented in a preliminary form as an alternative for the analytic functions. ANN collects the pre-processed signals from the various measurements (different sensors), producing an output of the target classification values. ANN requires initial training – in our case this is off-line learning based on test signals conducted in laboratory. We intend to develop in the direction of online learning with feedback from users

What communication modules do we use?

We use the most popular communication interfaces, which are complementary and do not rely on WiFi coverage to work. GSM/GPRS – a long-range communication SMS channel (based on coded text) or GPRS – digital transmission to a central database. Bluetooth Smart Energy (v4.1) – short-range communication with the option of device control (mainly ON/OFF) via a remote or portable applications.

Development Stage

At this point, we have finished the development of 3rd generation Elephant door ™ prototype. We have run 1.5 years product development process and now we can show our results to Kickstarter community. We are still working on the development of software based on neural networks that are needed to Elephant door ™ will not send false messages to users. However the basics algorithms are built and tested, so now we have to teach the system how to react. We are satisfied with the results of our prototype and we can start to plan production process. So we need your support to start a production process and to make Elephant door ™ to available to anyone

About Us 

We care about your safety! Friendly technology and efficient innovation enable us to create unique, but simple solutions that redefine the smart security sector. We use professional solutions that have only been available to an exclusive market until now. Now we put them in your hands. We want to ensure the safety of you and your loved ones. We understand the need for security solutions, so we dedicate our time to creating new technologies with endless possibilities.

Risks and challenges

MANUFACTURING
Unfortunately, in the complex process of the creation of new technologies, there are numerous contingents that influence each other. Production is a huge challenge for us, especially since our priority is the highest quality at a very reasonable price. That's why we work with professionals from the very beginning of the creative process. Our product has been created by people with experience in developing commercial products, giving us a device that is tested and practical to produce.
We try our hardest to select suppliers and subcontractors who are trusted and tested by other companies. We also work with professionals who have many years of experience in managing manufacturing processes for the largest brands as well as for products in the new technologies industry
