    I’m CEO and one of the Co-founders of Minut. We’re a venture-backed start-up on a mission to change the home security industry. Together, our team of 20+ people have created Point, a home alarm built using artificial intelligence and powered by community. It replaces traditional alarm systems comprising many sensors spread around your home with a single device that instead uses sound and machine learning to identify events. We're just getting started but have sold and shipped more than 10K Points to customers in sixty countries to date.

     

    Minut and Point has been featured on CNN, TechCrunch, New Scientist and Wired among others.
