Cocoon has just had some great global coverage. On Tuesday 28 February, Colin (Co-Founder and Head of Marketing) was interviewed as part of BBC World News, which is broadcast to over 200 countries around the world. It’s particularly great recognition to receive during our crowdfunding campaign on Crowdcube. At the time of writing, we have nearly 600 investors committed to our mission of making home security simple & affordable for everyone.

Behind the smart home headlines

We were invited to take part in the “Behind The Headlines” segment of BBC Business Live at 20.00 GMT. Colin discussed how modern technology like Cocoon is becoming more prevalent in our homes, and its impact. He explained that “privacy and security of our data is of absolute paramount importance, and it will continue to be, as we move on to have more and more devices in the home”. Then reiterating that security is core to Cocoon and part of our team’s expertise.

Asked about Cocoon and how it works, Colin said, “We’re obsessed with great customer experiences and making home security simple, and what simpler way than to use a single device to protect the whole home?”

Our unique patented Subsound® technology “a combination of very low-frequency sound detection, and machine learning… able to detect human activity throughout the house” piqued the interest of interviewer, Tanya Beckett.
