Myteepi is a new smart home solution that takes care of all the things that matters to you when you're away. It is different from traditional smart home systems: it’s simpler to use and totally autonomous. Myteepi is the only smart home device that has your back when you’re gone and doesn't require WiFi or 4G connectivity, or a power supply.
Myteepi answers useful questions like:
Thanks to its innovative technology, Myteepi, does not requires any local infrastructure like WiFi, telephony or AC power. Myteepi is totally self-contained and can run for around 8 months before needing to replace its standard AA batteries. It makes Myteepi ideal for isolated location like a second or vacation home, a relative's home or secluded room like a garden shed or RV cabin. Myteepi is also ideal for location with no WiFi like an elderly home.
For all these use cases Myteepi takes advantages of its low-power design. It works where you have no WiFi, no Internet existing connectivity. Thanks to 8 months autonomy on its own batteries you do not need to power it and it fits well where you have no power capacities.

The Myteepi Family
We started this project 3 years ago and we had a long but good way to go before being ready to introduce you to the Myteepi family.
Myteepi Square is the compact, low-power lookout you've been looking for. Perfect for isolated spaces, small or large, and durable enough to withstand some moisture from the outdoors, Myteepi Square can be placed in your greenhouse, second home, garage, cellar or anywhere you need a watchful eye. Myteepi Square utilizes a core set of pay-per-use services so you can have the essentials at a reasonable price for up to two years at a time. Myteepi Square features a proprietary connection standard, so there's no need to worry about getting it set up on your Wi-Fi network, too! Myteepi Square works with 2x AA standard battery you can easily change in a minute.
Myteepi Square available rewards are : KS Super early bird, Ks early bird in limited quantities and Kickstarter backer or 2-Pack special price.
Myteepi Woody is the Square's bigger brother, packing all the features and functionality of the Square into a stylish steepled wooden housing. Myteepi Woody is perfect for your home, your parent's home or a vacation home and can run on AC wall power as well as its internal power supply, switching if the wall power ever does go out. Myteepi Woody works with 3x standard AA battery provided. Woody comes with access to the full set of premium services, free for the first year, and renewable at 49€ each year thereafter. This subscription gets you access to Myteepi's proprietary communication standard, as well as the ease-of-use of the mobile and web app to check in Myteepi while out and about. It does not need to be connected to WiFi or Internet, it has its own embedded communication system.
Myteepi Woody available rewards are : KS Super early bird, Ks early bird in limited quantities and Kickstarter backer special price.
Exclusively for Kickstarter backers, Myteepi has created 5 special Kickstarter-inspired Woody shells that show your early support for Myteepi's vision of a safe, connected home. Each Kickstarter edition comes with 2 extra years of premium subscription service, making for a total of 3 years of convenient monitoring.
Myteepi WOODY and SQUARE are multi-sensor connected devices measuring and reporting many different environmental information:
Myteepi contains a slew of sensors to measure everything about its environment.
Information are captured in real time for managing alertsreported frequently to be accurate: we can drill down to 15 minutes temperature, 2 minutes activity & presence to feed our smart algorithms.
Myteepi own an original, low power and innovative fire alarm recognition system that works even when fire blown-up the breakers.
Myteepi is different
Myteepi is the only solution fully working on isolated place where you have no WiFi, eventually no power supply. It's also the easiest solution to install, the cost effective solution regarding to scope of functions it covers.
Myteepi has been honored in multiple magazines and press outlets for its innovative services, simplicity and the Woody's unique wooden design.
CNET says “ The neat-looking gadget houses sensors to track motion, temperature and humidity in your home, and can run off of two AA batteries for up to eight months.”
Ubergizmo comments “MyTeepi is a home sensor that does not require electricity.”
We also showcased Myteepi at CES 2018 in Las Vegas and CES Unveiled
Myteepi was born 3 years ago from the minds of 2 engineers specialized in web developments and microelectronic design. Myteepi was a side-hustle for two years, adding three new team members to handle business development, back- and frontend development and an advisor for the whole outfit. Over a year ago, we created our company Ingenious Things, even if we are continuing to work part-time on the project to focus our financial capacity on product development. During the latter half of 2017, we opened our capital to angel investors and an industrial partner to be ready for our launch. We attended CES 2018 and are now launching on Kickstarter to produce our first-ever product batch and fund the finalization of the Myteepi's software components.
Before creating Myteepi Square and Woody, we designed multiple prototype versions to get the design and functionality just right. Based on this experience, we’ve made over 20 units already to test manufacturing procedures and conduct year-long beta tests.
Now, we are ready to launch our first pair of products with the help of you, our backers! We need your support to begin production of our first batch of Myteepi units and prepare for full-scale mass-production. You, our backers, are essential to our full-market launch.
Myteepi is the first smart home solution that fully utilizes Sigfox, a dedicated low-power Internet of Things network infrastructure. Thanks to this technology, Myteepi is able to communicate with you at long distances, from remote and low-signal areas and last for months on its own internal batteries. You don't need to have WiFi, 4G or any pre-existing wireless connection. It makes Myteepi really simple to install and use, as shown in the "How It Works" video. For this reason, it fits particularly well in your villa, garage, cellar or grandma’s home.
Thanks to the low power approach Myteepi can work on batteries for months and continue to report all your expected measurement.
Radio radiations are also particularly low thanks to this technology.
Myteepi can be installed in any country covered by the Sigfox network. This means that you can easily set up your own Myteepi in any of 45 countries across the globe. The first portion of orders, from Europe and Africa, will feature RCZ1 frequency support, while North and South American orders will feature RCZ2 support, resulting in a later delivery window for backer rewards.
The following map displays the countries actually covered. The green countries are compatible with the current working version of Myteepi. The one in blue will be delivered end of the year with a dedicated compatible version.
To verify that your country and region are currently supported by the Sigfox Network, check the coverage maps here https://www.myteepi.fr/myteepi-eligibility/. The Sigfox Network is continually expanding, so if you receive you Myteepi unit before the network has been rolled out in your region, your free year of premium service will only begin once the network is activated.
Our team has over 15 years of IT industry experience, in both hardware and software development. While we want to make our product as simple and accessible for anyone, we are ultimately tech lovers who also want to make the device expandable for the geeks we are at heart.
Made in France - Europe
Because of the quality of our domestic French industry, Myteepi has been designed and will be fully manufactured in France thanks to a strong industrial partnership we have. Even the natural wood for Myteepi Woody will be sourced from within France's borders!
In the future, we will be working on adding and improving functionality of the Myteepi applications and create companion sensors to complement your Myteepi unit and expand its capabilities. The Myteepi mobile application will launch on both Android and iOS, and allow for IFTTT, LaMetric integration with Myteepi's APIs.
It will be thanks to you, Thank you so much !
Risks and challenges
We have already overcome a number of difficulties in our project with the primary one being the assurance of actually producing the product at the price we want. We are currently partnered with an industrial producer in France and they have helped us to successfully validate our project's feasibility.
We are ready to begin production, and continue working to get our components certified for all the different regions Myteepi will be available to Kickstarter backers. This is why the U.S. version, still requiring FCC certification, will be delivering later in the year.
