Upgrading Your Home Security Experience

Cocoon Labs

App, Update, User experience

We’re very excited for our latest app updates, so much so that we wanted to tell you a little about them… Available in both the Android and iOS,  we think the updates will really improve your experience with Cocoon.

See what your Cocoon is hearing

The most exciting (and complex) new feature in the update is a live visualisation of the sound waves your Cocoon detects. This means you can see Subsound® in action. Curious to try it?…

Once updated open your Cocoon app. In the main menu select  “See Subsound”
(N.B. Make sure you’re connected to the same WiFi as your Cocoon for best results.)

We hope you think the visualisations as fascinating as we do.

Examples of Subsound® live, you can view it at any time, whether there’s an alert or not.

Upgraded app design

The app design has had a serious rejig to make everything not only more visually appealing, but also even more intuitive to use. The timeline is now far richer in information. There are video thumbnails for the past seven days of alerts.

You told us that being able to manually arm and disarm your Cocoon was a feature that really mattered to you. We listened, and so have made it much more straightforward and obvious to do. Now should you want to arm your Cocoon at bedtime, or disarm it when you have a babysitter, it’s really easy to do.

Sound the siren

Lots of you said that you wanted to try out the siren but couldn’t until there was an alert, but when there’s an alert you’re not home to hear the siren. Based on this we’ve now added an option to use the siren whether there’s an alert or not.

There’s much more to these updates, but we’ll let you try it for yourself.
Please do let us know what you think.
