The idea for Boundary emerged when our co-founder, Robin, was visiting the United States on his honeymoon. He realised that if he was burgled there was nothing he could do except watch events unfold on his smart camera. The alarm he had didn’t have a good user experience at all either.
On returning to Scotland Robin looked around the market for a reasonably priced self-install security system but couldn’t find one. This is what led him to explore how technology could transform the sector. Robin and co-founder Paul set out to build something better looking, easier to use, with better features and for less money. Boundary was born!
We scoped out the idea with several feasibility exercises. It’s definitely a goer!
