About

Even after years of development and simplification, existing Home Automation and Security Products are cumbersome to install and use. Most of the current wireless security and automation systems need a hub in order to connect to the cloud through your home Wi-Fi or a cellular module. Hubs add another point of complexity and failure.    

Securmate is the only wireless entrance sensor in the market that connects to the cloud directly through Wi-Fi without the need for an intermediate hub. The Securmate entrance sensor in combination with its smartphone app and cloud service allows you to form an easy to use and portable do-it-yourself security system.

Securmate also connects to popular connected products through IFTTT allowing you to scale the system based on your needs.

If you have Wi-Fi connectivity and have used other Wi-Fi products, you will find installing Securmate a breeze.  A one-time setup will program your personal Wi-Fi credentials to the Securmate sensor. 

Stick a sensor to the entrance of any property you want to protect.

Turn on the alarm.

If there is a security breech ...

You will receive a push notification on any phone with an app installed.

Your friends and family, who don’t have the app installed, will receive an email.

At a quick glance, the dashboard shows you the current state of your entrances.  An extended menu allows you to manage your devices, search and download your activity logs.

You can also see an activity timeline of all your entrance sensors.

With current security and home automation solutions, you are often given pre-canned solutions that may or may not work for your needs. By connecting Securmate with IFTTT, you can access a wide variety of other products and use cases, so you have a system that fits your lifestyle and needs.  IFTTT Services will be free for the first year.

For security, you may want to use a smart light or siren that works with IFTTT, as shown in the above video, to indicate an intrusion.

You can also capture video footage beginning the instant your entrance is breached.

Change in the state of doors and windows can be a clear indicator to trigger actions in your house.  Securmate allows you to further qualify these triggers based on the time of day.

So you can automate your morning routine based on triggers from your bedroom door or automate actions when you arrive home from work based on triggers from your front door.

Securmate is a pocket size system that is small enough to fit in your hand, so you can carry it anywhere. You can use Securmate anywhere with Wi-Fi.

You won’t have to hunt for rare battery types, Securmate uses two regular AAA alkaline batteries.

Securmate is not just for the perimeter of your house. Securmate does not intrude on your privacy, like most camera systems do, so you can also install it in your private space. Use a Securmate sensor on your bedroom door to trigger your morning or nightly routine. Use Securmate on a child’s door or on the door of those with a tendency to sleep walk or in the room of a loved one with dementia, so you know when they leave their room.

All communication to and from Securmate is over an encrypted channel using industry standard protocols.

The Securmate campaign is run by Initium Labs which is a California based startup. We want to make a difference in people’s lives by solving the common pain points that often get overlooked when an entire industry starts moving in a certain direction. We don’t mind questioning the norm and finding solutions that simplify technology and make it approachable for everyone. 

We’re reaching out to you, a part of the Kickstarter community, because you are early adopters and evangelists of technology products. However we realize that due to the complexity of manufacturing in large scale, sometimes creators are not able to deliver on all of their promises. So in order to de-risk that, we’ve gone ahead and funded the manufacturing of a mid-sized batch of the product ourselves. Our production of this initial batch is complete and we should be able to ship the product to early backers in July. What we’re hoping from the campaign is to get your feedback, your stories of how you use Securmate and if you find it useful, as we think you will, pass on the good word about the product.

The following videos show how to setup different facets of the Securmate system.

This demo shows the integration of the Securmate entrance sensor with the Arlo camera and LIFX lights.

   
 

Risks and challenges

We’ve been investing in the design and development of Securmate for over three years. The design has been thoroughly tested and gone through the FCC and IC (US and Canada) compliance testing. We have all production tooling made and we have taken Securmate through a mid-sized production cycle. Each part coming out of this production line went through a program and test process to validate its functionality and to program it with unique data. So for our early access parts, from the first round of manufacturing, we anticipate very little risk in delivering the product to you with the functionality mentioned on the campaign page.

For the subsequent rounds of manufacturing, we will be changing some BOM components in order to simplify component sourcing and so that we can deliver our product to a wider customer base. The core design of the product will be very similar, so while we don’t anticipate major risks, any new updates can produce its own set of challenges. However having done one round of manufacturing of Securmate already, we feel confident in being able to address any issues, if they arise.
