Our company

We are an award-winning German startup with locations in Munich, Eindhoven and Pittsburgh. We are 100% funded by the Bosch Group.

Our goal is to be the leading open platform and marketplace for smart security and safety solutions. The platform we offer is based on a camera operating system that powers cameras from various manufacturers on the market. It connects to our Application Store where leading video analytics development companies offer cutting-edge apps. To run this platform, we take a commission for app sales.
