Protonet has launched its first international crowd funding on the U.S. Indiegogo platform with its latest smart home hub named “Zoe”. Protonet’s crowd funding campaign made headlines in 2014 with orange-colored mini servers. At the time, the start-up earned around USD 1 million on the German seedmatch platform within 90 minutes for the private cloud server Maya and hitting a new world record. It eventually earned a total of EUR 3 million for the product.
Zoe takes orders
Protonet aims to launch its first smart home technology product on the market with “Zoe”. This is a secure control centre for private householders allowing people to monitor the heating, windows or doors at home per voice command. The tiny server can even carry out orders like switching on lights or a music system when the door opens. “Zoe” also has so-called drops or small mobile gadgets that are positioned throughout a house and can receive voice commands. But individual ones can also be switched off.
