Most home security systems only alert you when someone has already entered your property, Kevin is a smart home security system that will look after your home while you are away. By simulating the presence of people in any room, emitting light-shadow effects and sounds to deter a possible burglar. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the different effects that Kevin can produce. From merely randomly turning on your lights dependent on any variety of different factors, to creating a vibrant, lively simulation with acoustic effects and more.
As you would have expected the Kevin smart home security system comes complete with its own companion smartphone application, allowing you to check on Kevin from afar, as well as receiving notifications when Kevin requires assistance or notices something out of place. To produce a wide variety of variable simulations, Kevin uses a smart logic system that considers multiple factors such as location, language, weather, home type and more. Kevin is also fitted with a light intensity sensor, and automatically knows when you leave the house enabling the smart security system to switch on and control lights and turn them off to save power when required.
mitipi the developers and creators of Kevin this month took to the Kickstarter crowdfunding website to raise the required funds they need to go into production.
