SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Sunflower Labs and Stanley Black & Decker announced today a strategic partnership that will allow Stanley Black & Decker and Sunflower Labs to work together on new and innovative security solutions.
The Sunflower Home Awareness System combines outdoor sensors with an aerial camera for a full view of what's going on around your home, resulting in a more complete picture of activity and fewer false alarms common with current home systems.
"Security is more than locks and alarms, it's about understanding what's happening on your property at all times," said Alex Pachikov, Sunflower Labs CEO. "We're thrilled to have a partner in Stanley Black and Decker, the world's second largest commercial electronic security provider, who shares that belief."
"Sunflower Labs is pairing the state of the art in sensor and quadcopter technology to bring insightful security to property owners, giving them better context into activity on their grounds and providing real time verification of events," said Larry Harper, Vice President Stanley Ventures. "We look forward to working with them to bring this innovation to market and to broadening the application of their technologies into the commercial security market."
When an owner installs Sunflower Smart Lights™ around the property, the system's sensors learn the pattern of normal activity. When unusual activity is detected, the Sunflower Flying Camera is deployed, sending an alert and streaming video to the Sunflower app on the owner's smartphone to provide a holistic picture of the situation.
The partnership includes an agreement to integrate Sunflower Labs' technology to co-develop future products, and was launched in conjunction with a strategic investment by Stanley Ventures as part of a funding round from General Catalyst and other investors. To date, Sunflower Labs has raised $6 million in funding.
