A new type of personal security system has been launched over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website this week called CoinGuard.
CoinGuard consists of a small coin sized sensor that can be placed pretty much anywhere to alert you of any movements or vibrations that may occur. Watch the video after the jump to learn more about the CoinGard project and see it in action.
Once a vibration or movement is detected by the CoinGard sensor it will automatically send an alert to your smartphone enabling you to act upon the information. The complete system incorporates both a coin sized wireless sensor together with a gateway.
That is linked to a home network and works in conjunction with a cloud-based monitoring system, together with the iHomeWare smartphone application to keep you updated with alerts.Its creators explain a little more :
“The CoinGuard wireless sensor is battery powered, and the replaceable battery will last for over a year, depending on use. With a range of up to 100 meters from the gateway, you can reliably put the sensor almost anywhere in your house. And with its precisely-tuned vibration sensor, you can rest easy knowing that any attempt to move the sensor will trigger a notification.
It is small and lightweight, and rather beautiful if you ask us! The smooth, simple, modern design belies the advanced technology contained within. The durable outer ring provides three useful attach points, and the clean design is unobtrusive, even when placed in a conspicuous location.”
“The gateway provides a secure link between your home Wifi network and your wireless sensors, keeping you connected whether you are at home or anywhere else in the world. Setup is simple – a single button is used to effortlessly authenticate your new sensor devices and to register your smartphone.”
The CoinGuard security project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise $100,000 in pledges to make the jump from concept to production.
