Ottawa’s Piper Hits $100K Crowdfunding Goal

Last week Techvibes reported on an ambitious crowdfunding campaign to raise $100,000 to begin manufacturing the Piper home security device.

Black Sumac, the Ottawa-based startup that created Piper, had raised over $14,000 in just 24 hours on Indiegogo and today they hit their lofty goal.

Piper is an all-in-one home security device that combines three important things: panoramic video, environmental sensors and Z-Wave home automation.

The creation of Piper follows along a recent paradigm of “disruption” in home security. Gone are the days where companies like ADT or AlarmForce controlled the market: now consumers can get cheap, easy-to-install home security systems that provide more control.
