The Angee home security system is like a Nest thermostat and Amazon Echo rolled into one

Hiring a home security guard who can keep you constantly updated on the goings-on around your house (and send you pictures and video to boot) is expensive. It’s also a bit unrealistic — after all, unless you live in a museum or a bank, it seems unlikely that your guests will find personnel standing guard against intruders. But just because you don’t have the world’s largest collection of Impressionist era paintings or billions in other people’s cash doesn’t mean you don’t deserve unparalleled protection. Which is why the Angee is such a brilliant innovation.

Described as the world’s first truly autonomous home security system, Angee is an advanced security and communication system that moves with you, talks to you, and best of all, adapts to your daily routine. Think of it as a security TiVo of sorts, with the capacity to “learn” its environment and the people it’s meant to protect.

To use Angee, simply download the app, pair it with the sleek, black console, and then place security tags at entry points or at points around your home you’d like Angee to look after. Arming and disarming the device is fully automated through a two-step authentication process of phone and voice recognition. And from there, security is all downhill.

With 360° visibility and motion-tracking technology, Angee can automatically turn towards whatever is happening in its vicinity, thanks to its unique sensory  technology and algorithm-enabled intelligent trigger system. Because Angee recognizes members of your household (either by their voice or the Bluetooth signal on their phone) and learns their exit and entry patterns, it can detect suspicious activity, including movement by someone it doesn’t know, changes in background noise, or even unfamiliar voices.

If Angee feels something is alert-worthy, it’ll send you a notification via the mobile app (available on both iOS and Android), and will proceed to stream video to show you exactly what’s going on. But Angee is much more than a security system. A sort of personal assistant, Angee can be controlled by your voice, and can answer phone calls, check your calendar, or even remind you to prepare for the weather (you don’t want rain coming in through your open windows). And because it’s completely portable, weighing in at just 1.3 pounds, and has a re-chargeable battery life of around 10 hours, you’ll never be left alone in the dark when it comes to home security.

“We’ve created a home security system that is reliable and easy to use, and offers features that far exceed other systems in a similar price range,” said Angee Co-founder and CEO Tomas Turek. “Angee adapts to your specific environment and to your personal preferenc es, making you feel safe and comfortable. I think we’ve made an important step toward connecting people to their homes in a new and meaningful way.”

Already, Angee has raised $531,107 from its Kickstarter campaign, far surpassing the original $250,000 goal the team had set. And now, they’re moving forward with another crowdsourcing effort on Indiegogo, where you can also pre-order one of these nifty Nest meets Amazon Echo devices for the early bird price of $312.
