When we first checked in on hardware startup Butterfleye, they set out to raise $100,000 on Indiegogo to build its smart home monitoring system. Well, it blew through that goal and has raised an unbelievably impressive $604,451.
The camera itself promises to cut out false positives when alerting you of movements in your home. An example? A light turning on and off triggers motion for some systems. It’s smart technology that I’m sure Alphabet’s Nest and Dropcam (and other companies), is already paying attention to. The cameras will retail for around $260.
I chatted with Butterfleye’s CEO Ben Nader about their technology, stretch goals, manufacturing philosophy and of course…the all-important projected ship date.
There’s still 50 or so hours left to get in on the campaign if you want to get one early.
