Some of the most inspiring stories come from the most unpleasant experiences.
One night, the founder of Salient Eye was away from his apartment for the weekend while robbers stole almost everything he owned. Upon his return, what was left was an empty house he once called home. Completely barron except for a few old and broken smart devices.
It was this moment when Salient Eye was born. In 2014, the company started to develop technology that turns any smartphone or tablet into a security camera, based on motion detection from inside the house. It takes just three clicks to set up, to which the user receives photos as emails when an intruder is in the house. Today, it can boast more than a million downloads.
Tzvika Agassi joined the team as a Co-Founder in 2015, when they realised they needed a ‘product guy’ to help build their dream. And by dream, it’s not as though the folks hope people get robbed – in fact, it’s just the opposite. They want to provide safety and security to as many people as possible.
“The biggest barrier is the initial cost of a camera – but now you can use your old devices,” explains Agassi. “Everyone has an old tablet or smartphone lying around.”
He’s right. It’s estimated there will be more than 8 billion smartphones by 2020 – more than the entire population of Earth. Considering 1.2 billion people don’t have access to electricity, it’s safe to say there is a surplus.
Salient Eye is somewhat contradictory in its technology. It revolutionises the way in which we protect ourselves, but relies on old hardware and software to do so. And while many of us keep our old phones, the chances are they are already damaged. Either way, Salient Eye operates on iOS 7 (iPhone 4) and Android 2.2. It is a trendy addition to vintage software.
And it may just save your home.
