About this project
Your smart assistant
Branto is a streamlined wireless device that serves up a wide range of functions – right from the box. You need no additional attachments or modules.
Look what you can do with Branto
Branto lets you see and hear everything that happens inside your home, whether you’re in it or far away.
- Capture awesome video of your party, directing the camera angle from your smartphone.
- Photograph or check out the full scope of your home with a detailed panorama option.
- Stay in touch with your entire family, viewing everyone and everything well beyond the peephole of a webcam.
- Put Branto in the conference room at work and you can fully participate in meetings. Observe each speaker around the room while your image is broadcast on the TV screen or monitor.
Control Branto with Google Glass
Being the head of the family means you’re in charge of your family’s safety in security. Branto lets you keep a keen eye on the house while you’re away.
- Receive instant notification as the motion sensor tracks any suspicious activity.
- Get a head’s up on any suspicious sounds, such as breaking glass, as Branto instantly focuses on the sound source.
- Take advantage of Branto’s night vision mode that lets you control the situation, even in complete darkness.
- Stay stealthy with a non-obvious security camera that won’t attract unwanted attention.
- Enjoy peace of mind from Branto’s long battery life that performs all security functions and keeps you updated, even if the power or Wi-Fi go down.
Branto goes beyond traditional security systems by not only alerting you of suspicious activity but also homing in on the source of the activity. You need control, not anxiety. Branto is always on the alert.
Cloud storage comes with vulnerabilities – but Branto does not. All content generated by your Branto will be stored only on the hard drives of related devices and transmitted in encrypted form.
Branto also steers clear of the disturbing new trend of collecting all your personal data. We protect your personal information, even from ourselves.
Branto’s stereo-caliber, wireless speakers transform your smartphone, tablet or laptop into an awesome sound system. Use Branto to listen to your favorite services.
Unlike Bluetooth speakers, Branto can keep the audio going even if you move room to room. And even if you want to make or receive a call.
Listen to audiobooks with Branto and our partner Findaway World. This service based on the popular audio delivery platform AUDIOENGINE with one of the world's largest collections of digital audiobooks: 67,405! Enjoy them yourself and play them to your child at bedtime.
Put Branto in the kids’ room and you can hear and see your baby from anywhere in the house.
You’ll be able to keep an eye on your child even if he or she is moving around.
Branto plays well with others, seamlessly working with your existing devices as well as those you intend purchase down the line.
Connection options include ZigBee, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and cellular modules.
Branto Bit: the smallest open/close sensor
Unique ability of this sensor is that it is 5-10 times smaller than any of its competitors. Its aesthetic appearance does not attract too much attention to itself due to its small size.
Placing Branto Bit on your doors and windows will widen Branto Smart Home’s abilities as the Security device.

Why 3 Branto orbs are better than 1
Most people have three important places in their life:
- Parent’s home
See how useful it is to be physically in one place and remotely in others. Set your Branto at these three places and be there right away when you need to, not when you are able to.
Time is a valuable resource and Branto will help you to save it!

What`s in the box?
Debut on WebSummit
The first working prototype of Branto made its debut in November 2014 at the Web Summit in Dublin.
It quickly caught the attention of industry leaders, particularly experts focused in the area of the Internet of Things.
CES 2015 in Las Vegas
TechCrunch handpicked Branto to participate in Hardware Battlefield 2015. Branto had participated Jan. 6 to 9 at the 2015 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) and Hardware Battlefield, so many people already had tested and reviewed our 5 samples of Branto which were with us.

Risks and challenges
We know one of the biggest sources of anxiety for backers is waiting for the final product to arrive. The shipping date can be much longer than originally promised, thanks to any number of reasons. A product may encounter production delays, unexpected production problems, shipping delays from the factory to the distribution hub, and other issues. Rest assured we have all twists and turns covered.
We’ve been preparing for two years, and we’re confident we can meet our promised deadlines.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
The Branto orb is charged by the AC power source with a voltage of 100-240V.
Branto has a 3500 mАh battery, which can last from 3 to 24h depending on the use.
Yes and in any other place on the planet.
You will be able to control TV, air conditioner using infrared port, thermostat Nest, Philips Hue lightbulb, Belkin outlet, and other devices that support Zig Bee
Branto has internal memory of 16 Gb; however, you have the option to store the content on your smartphone or tablet.
The most effective will be to put Branto in each room. This way you will be able to control the whole house instead of just one room. Functions of the remote presence will be also useful at work. And of course Branto is a wonderful way to connect with parents if they live far away. We are sure that they will be happy to receive such a gift, and to see that you are eager to be able to talk with them more often. Moreover, using only one app you will be able to control up to four Branto orbs.
