Digital Trends

"[Nomad] has a few tricks up its sleeve that should appeal to security-conscious users on the move."

PocketNow

"One of the coolest things about the Nomad is that it takes its independence very seriously, not relying on external Wi-Fi or wired networks. That’s made possible by built-in LTE connectivity..."

Hackster.io

"nōmad is a modular and portable device that’s designed to provide the features of a permanently installed security system."

Connected Crib

"With cellular connectivity and battery, you can use this camera where others may not be suitable. It is simply travel friendly."

The Ambient

"We came away impressed with the possibilities. The system works as advertised. We were able to witness it quickly and simply getting set up as well as test how sensitive its vibration and motion sensors are (you'll definitely feel safe at night)."


Slender, self-contained, and deployable in seconds, nōmad is the first security system designed with true mobility in mind. Its motion sensor, HD camera, and zero-hassle cellular connectivity protect you, your loved ones, and your valuables - wherever you are.

Add any mix of wireless sensor PoDs to detect motion, vibration, light, and even smoke. PoDs snap onto the system for travel, automatically powering down to maximize battery life. When you’re ready to protect a site, just unstack and place the PoDs at security risk points - nōmad is instantly ready to sound alarms and send text/image/video alerts to your mobile device the moment a sensor is tripped.

Twist. Place. Arm. Secure.

With nōmad, you’re also protected while you’re in transit, making sure that your bags don’t get too far away and sounding an alarm if they do. Just place a BagTag on the handle or inside each bag - nōmad does the rest.

KEY ASPECTS OF NŌMAD

  • Standalone: cellular connectivity and extended battery life isolate nōmad from interference by would-be intruders
  • Rapid Deployment: twist, place, arm…secure in seconds
  • Secure: nōmad can store still images and video clips on-board, immediately send them to your mobile device, and upload them to the cloud…all according to your preferences
  • Travel Savvy: slim design and rugged coating make nōmad luggage friendly, plus it charges from commodity adapters
  • Wireless: Snap your custom mix of wireless sensor PoDs onto the nōmad 5.5” base - a decked-out system is just 8.5” long

WHO BENEFITS FROM NŌMAD

Did we catch you thinking that nōmad is only for the “jet set”? It certainly makes your travels safer and more secure, but as you’ve already seen, we’ve just scratched the surface on all the places it can be used. From the deep woods to cosmopolitan cities across the world, security risks are everywhere - now, so is nōmad.

TRAVELER

Meet Carla, a road-warrior who travels to cities across the globe on business. She protects mission critical gear both in-transit and after arriving with nōmad.

EXPLORER

Nikki and Dean love camping in beautiful, remote places. The dangers of nighttime wildlife encounters and fire-risk come with the territory. Even “off the grid”, they protect themselves and the environment with nōmad.

MARINER

Clarice and Conner spend their summers sailing the Great Lakes. When in port, vandalism/theft and rough weather damage are real concerns. nōmad protects their investment from both.

SNOWBIRD

Don spends summers up north and winters down south. He’s messed with traditional security services and even tried hauling a home-bound Wi-Fi-based system back and forth. Now he seamlessly protects both ends and every stop in between with nōmad.

UNDER THE HOOD: PIECES OF THE NŌMAD PUZZLE

Base Unit And Sensor PoDs

Brings critical security features to any site, even when there is no wireless access to the “outside world”…

  • Local wireless sensors
  • Local HD video capture
  • Audio alarms
  • Rapid deployment
  • Local SmartPhone access
  • Extended operation time
  • Basic feature config
  • USB video/stills offload

When in the presence of cellular or Wi-Fi services, nōmad’s connected features light up.


Smartphone App

Our Smartphone app lets you access nōmad’s most sophisticated features, some linking directly to the base unit, others with our cloud services…

  • Advanced feature config
  • Full system status
  • Remote arm/disarm
  • Live video
  • Video clip viewing and management
  • Multi-nōmad control

The app will be easy-to-use and run on iOS and Android.


Cloud Services

While it’s the least sexy of the three core components of nōmad, our cloud services provide additional flexibility and value by…

  • Receiving events and sending alerts to security circle
  • Maintaining a history of all security events
  • Receiving and preserving uploaded video clips/still images
  • Providing the smartphone app with system status info

WALK BEFORE YOU RUN

Everybody wants to sell a million of this or a million of that. We’re no different. At nōmad, we believe that the best way to build a product that everyone wants is to begin with a small installed base. These users/partners help us stress test our designs, apps, and connective networks in order to deliver the best possible user experience in the business.

This means nōmad will be limiting the crowdfunding campaign to no more than 2500 units.

This is a large enough number to test our manufacturing plans, optimize our network and data flow algorithms, and harden our systems so they’re ready to scale.

It’s a small enough number that it allows us to manufacture in the good ol’ U-S-of-A. This means our design partners as well as our team can be hands-on for this initial run and can make modifications as they become necessary. It’s also small enough that we will be able to listen to individual feedback and address issues, which will result in the highest level of satisfaction in the mobile security field. We’ll settle for nothing less.

If this sounds like something you’d like to be part of, back us here and WELCOME ABOARD! It’s gonna be a hell of a ride!

WHERE WE’VE BEEN · WHERE WE’RE GOING · HOW WE’LL GET THERE

In stereotypical fashion, nōmad literally started as drawings over breakfast, first on a napkin and then spilling over onto pages and pages of a yellow legal pad (it was a long meal).

Not so typically, it was hand-built into a working prototype (the MK_I or “mark one”) within a month, including a base unit, several sensor PoDs, and basic cloud services.

From there, successive prototypes gathered interest in commercialization. Interest from partners, interest from key vendors, interest from likely users, all of it centered around real, touchable, functional prototypes.

This interest building process has been critical in vetting nōmad’s features and addressing the complexities implicit in the development of any connected device…

Thankfully, we’ve walked these coals before. Our team’s combined product development experience covers most of these disciplines, often deeply.

We also know what we don’t know…which is why we’ve sought out and engaged world-class vendors in these and other disciplines critical to the development of nōmad…

We sleep well at night knowing that MP Consulting has the wheel on creating the heart of nōmad. Mitul’s innovative team, open approach, and development savvy have already made nōmad better.


SaYes Consulting: Wireless Integration & Certification

The world of celluar connectivity is a difficult road filled with hard choices. SaYes has kept our feet on the path with a clear understanding of where the market is now and where it will be later, both in tech and business.


Crowd Supply: Crowdfunding Platform

This platform, the one you’re visiting right now, is like nothing else in the crowd-funding world. They’ve expertly handled the entire process for us, from education, to campaign strategy, to site construction, to world-class vendor connects. It’s all here.


Flex: Contract Manufacturing

It’s unusual for a giant in any field to take an interest in the “small fry.” Flex has embraced the nōmad concept, helped us flesh out commercialization issues, and developed our validation run strategy. With Flex, nōmad is ready to scale.


NGE has lived up to its award-winning IP-services reputation by strengthening our patent filings, deftly handling SIM trademarks, and helping us structure our business. We’ve been impressed with their deep bench of expert services.
