About

Why we created Cocoon.

Traditional home security doesn't work for most people. It's too expensive, too complicated, and false alarms happen so often that we've learnt simply to ignore them.

In 2014, our founding team decided that the future of home security is to make using it as simple and intelligent as possible. We set about creating a technology that would protect the whole home from a single device, and this is how Cocoon came into the world.

We believe in making homes safer and simpler. Often the people that need home security the most are the people that don’t have access to it. Whether you’re renting, own your home or travel between homes, everyone should feel safe at home with the minimum of fuss.
