Our Mission

To enable richer interaction between humans and the built environment, with respect to human dignity.

Ethics & Trust

by Design

Our Heatic sensors simply detect changes in temperature in the environment. Our software then infers human presence and activity based on these signals. We detect low-resolution blobs of heat and nothing more. We don’t collect any personally identifiable information (PII). Simply put, privacy is embedded into our design.

Who We Are


We are a team of engineers, scientists, designers and architects — functional design is in our DNA.

We believe that no technology can change the world if it is not accessible by everyone. This is why we always strive to deliver products with beautiful, simple design that enable ease of use and create delightful experiences for everyone.

Designed in California


Our technology was born in our own labs in San Francisco and Boston. All of our products are designed in-house giving our team total control over the performance of the system. Our extended network of colleagues, partners and collaborators in Europe and Asia work in all possible time zones towards building a truly global product.
