Piper is the first home security and automation device that combines HD panoramic video, Z-Wave home automation, and environmental sensors into a single elegant product that is controlled and monitored remotely by smartphones and tablets.
Piper’s Indiegogo campaign started on August 21 and will continue until September 20. So far, just under 500 backers have funded the project for a total of over $116,000, which includes contribution options ranging from $5 - $1500. The first units of Piper are scheduled to ship to early backers this November.
"We are extremely thankful to the early supporters who have pre-ordered Pipers via contributions to our Indiegogo campaign," said Russell Ure, CEO of Blacksumac. "The early popularity of our product serves as a strong validation that Piper will address and solve a problem for the many potential users of the product. Now that we’ve reached our Indiegogo goal we are shifting into manufacturing the units that have been pre-ordered."
From a mobile device, users can pan and zoom around from wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling, or switch to quad-view to watch four different areas of a room at once. While watching live video, users can interact with family, pets, or even unwanted guests at home with two-way audio.
Piper also works with hundreds of home automation accessories to make homes safer, smarter and more comfortable. For example, lights can be turned on and off from anywhere via a smartphone or tablet, or with a schedule or when it gets dark.
Piper is still available for pre-order on Indiegogo until September 20. For more information, visit http://getpiper.com/.
