2023_Mitipi Year-end Review


Mitipi launches KEVIN®.3, the most effective burglary prevention system in the world.

KEVIN®.3. is the newest version of Mitipi’s successful home security devices. Building on the success of its previous models, KEVIN®.3 is fully designed to bring even more security and comfort to its users. The device can be personalized not only via a new sound recording feature. Following a sustainability approach with a lower energy consumption of just 9W, KEVIN®.3 is also the world’s first electronic device that can change its color within a second. This answers customers’ need to get also a design icon that can adapt its color to the furniture at home or in the office.

New technology features

KEVIN®.3 uses the world’s most advanced technology to simulate human behavior. This makes it difficult for burglars to distinguish between empty and occupied homes and offices. The new product is the result of years of research and development. It comes with patented features, including the ability to customize light and shadow effects, authentic pre-recorded sounds, and the possibility to record and simulate sounds such as dog barking, homework, discussions among occupants, watching TV, and others. KEVIN® also connects to the Mitipi-Kevin app that provides full control of one or multiple devices from anywhere, allowing users to schedule the simulation or to use the automatic simulation feature, based on GPS. KEVIN®.3 enables four weeks of simulation without any repetition.

The world’s first patents on the simulation of humans

Mitipi’s revolutionary innovation doesn’t stop at KEVIN®.3: The company has just been granted two United States patents covering the “method, device and system for the simulation of the presence of humans” and the “device and method for simulating shadows and/or noises of a person”. This achievement further cements Mitipi’s position as the world’s innovation leader in home security solutions.

«We believe in making people feel safe in their homes and businesses. With KEVIN®.3, we have created a product that makes it easy for anyone to do just that», says Patrick Cotting, CEO of Mitipi. «Following the multifunctional tradition of other Swiss products such as the Swiss Army Knife, we have created a product that is not only doing its service while people are not at home. It can also be used as a great Bluetooth speaker and lamp while being at home. We look forward to continuing to innovate and create new solutions to make the world a safer place».

Targeting the US market

Mitipi is excited to bring KEVIN®.3 to the United States. It has been field-tested in three key markets, the San Francisco Bay Area, Boston and Washington, DC. MBA students from the Management School of Fribourg, from Suffolk University, as well as from UoC Berkeley were conducting a market study testing KEVIN®.3. They interviewed consumers, businesses, and law enforcement agencies. One of the learnings: Alarm systems are less and less effective. Hence the need to simulate the presence of people.

The previous models of KEVIN® have been successfully implemented already in thousands of households with a 0% break-in ratio since implementing the first device in 2019. More than 9 out of 10 customers would recommend the device to a friend.

About Mitipi and KEVIN®

Mitipi is an innovative tech company that wants everybody to feel safe. Besides having developed KEVIN®.3, the world’s easiest and most effective burglary prevention device, Mitipi is the first company in the world to hold a patent for simulating the presence of humans.

KEVIN® is the protected trademark of the device that simulates the presence of people at home. Its name is inspired by the classic movie “Home alone” where the small boy Kevin simulates the presence of his family at home.

Quote from Patrick Cotting

“We wanted to make a product that is not only preventing burglaries, but that adapts to the behavior of the consumer: Own sounds, own colors, automatically going ON when the consumer leaves the home, with the least energy consumption and the highest possible quality”.
