About the Startup
Describe your product in 3 words.
Simple, affordable, peace-of-mind
Where did you get the inspiration for your product?
We imagined how valuable it could be in people's lives when the everyday things in their home become connected and accessible on their smartphone. Specifically, tapping into that valuable information on a smoke alarm can be particularly impactful and reassuring in people's lives.
What differentiates your product from similar products out there?
We do not require you to purchase an expensive, shiny new device to get the power of a smart solution. Our smart battery is an affordable retrofit approach that anyone can set up and use.
Tell us about the best and most challenging parts of the creation process.
The best part of creating the Roost Smart Battery was transforming something technically complex into a tangible product that’s so easy and intuitive to use, and that has meaningful benefits. Fitting everything inside the 9V battery form factor, as well as delivering 5 year battery life in a Wi-Fi product, proved very challenging.
