How Kevin works by Mitipi

Kevin Is your virtual roommate. It ensures that your apartment will be revived during your absence and never leave. This can significantly reduce the risk of burglary.

Through light, acoustics and intelligent control, Kevin creates the impression of residents who, of course, move in space and do everyday things. This ranges from watching TV, listening to music, cooking, showers and much more...

Various possibilities:

Kevin by Mitipi is more than a clever solution that actively protects against burglars. Dealing with Kevin and the virtual roommate is a central point for us. You need nothing more than an outlet and a WiFi connection. Via app you can easily interact with the virtual roommate and control the system. Of course, this also goes from afar.

Now you can personalize your roommate


mitipi wants to create a world in which the term “burglary” only appears in history books.

Kevin makes a significant contribution to burglary prevention. In this way, we save tenants and homeowners the traumatic experience of such an event and make life easier and safer.
