Angee was born in 2015 as the result of the effort of the group of relentless founders, talented engineers, software developers, and marketers to bring a new, much-improved experience for consumers who want to be aware of what is happening at their homes when they are away.
The team started by learning from people`s experiences with early versions of smart security systems. As a tech-first company, Angee came to Kickstarter with home security we believe is one step ahead of the competition. The team effort was to make the smartest home security system ever; and committed to creating the most useful and convenient system tailored to each individual’s needs.
After initially analyzing the problem, and the available solutions, we performed many experiments, and created prototypes to test individual aspects of our solution, while also testing particular hypotheses. Although we gathered the necessary expertise, we soon realized that we lacked both capital and serial production experience to scale.
To make up what we lacked, we partnered with a well-established security firm and experienced hardware company, who offered to help. We made our prototype in 4 months, and it exceeded everyone’s expectations, except ours. After this very short and intensive sprint, the big company offered to buy us. We decided to stay independent and invest our own money to pursue our vision of a better future.
Learning from our mistakes, we re-imagined the concept of the product, starting with the original idea and applying all our hard-earned knowledge. Our ability to sacrifice all we had done up to that point and start from scratch was the single best decision we made, as it enabled us to create such a great product – one choice that is hard to make and few make.
