BuddyGuard : IoT & Machine learning startup road

Siemens Conference space

19th November, 10:30-11:00

BuddyGuard is a unique approach to home security. Using cutting edge technology BuddyGuard can understand what is happening in the world around it and take smart automatic decisions without the user needing to take actions on his own. The story behind BuddyGuard starts with 2 technical engineers and 1 marketing-guru, developing our first prototypes, of what it came to be a all-in-one AI-powered smart security device. Hardware startups requires a large gathering of passionated people together in order to bring the bare metal together and give it life through the software and intelligence installed. In our case it was not different - we had to go from prototype to prototype, hire our first employees, achieve goal by goal, learning from our mistakes and others, and after all, now we are ready to have our official delivery of the devices in 55 countries in early autumn!
