Lab - Security



World of Security
Living in a secure and safe home environment is one of our basic needs. Nobody feels at ease with unwanted guests in their house. And we all want a home in which your loved ones feel safe. And when something does happen, we want to be alerted immediately and take action. In case of break and enter, fire or water leakage, a lot of damage can be avoided when we act in time.



Our vision
Toon is developing services to manage your home and its surroundings by integrating sets of sensors and actuators. Think of door/window magnets, beacons, sirens, smart light bulbs, smart locks and cameras. All connected to Toon, so you won’t need an extra expensive hub or complex installation process. In case of an emergency, Toon will inform you immediately so you can take appropriate action. And when you are on holiday, Toon can also automatically send a security agent to check on your house and take following actions. We believe security should be stupid simple, do-it-yourself install and without big investment and high monthly fees.



Your ideas
We are looking for solutions that will ease lives for the majority. So not the 5% of households that already have a full fledged solution, but the 95% of households that do not, and desire something simple that works. Think beyond traditional expensive security offerings which don’t get traction. How can we involve the neighborhood in alerting when something is wrong in your home? How can we prevent a burglary by simulating presence with light? Inspired? Let’s get in touch and start developing together. We don’t have all the solutions ourselves, come join us. Or even better, beat us, using our API.

Lab – Assisted Living



World of Assisted Living
Lots of people live alone. Considering the growing group of senior citizens and disabled living on their own, it is important to assist these people with their daily routines, and keep an eye on them, to support, help and service when needed. This will found the future society, in which people will be asked to remain independent and run their own lives. Up until they are old, grey and happy.



Our vision
We’d love to help these people. We would like to alert them to keep doing the vital and smart things in their every day life.. And watch over them, in case (urgent) help is needed. And, we want to include their social peers and family. By analyzing energy consumption and translating this to household behavior, we can see if all is ok, or not. With the contribution of smart home devices like motion sensors, cameras and wearables, we are developing services to assist them leading a comfortable, safe, independent life.



Your Ideas
Are you triggered by the assisted living possibilities? Can you think of services that will help people to assist their parents or grandparents by living on their own? What can you say about energy consumption patterns in relation to someone’s behavior at home? And how would you connect all sorts of devices to create assisted living services? Let’s get in touch and start developing together. We don’t have all the solutions ourselves, come join us. Or even better, beat us, using our API.

Lab - Water



World of water usage
Water is an essential element of everybody’s daily live. We use it to cook, clean and shower. Everybody recognizes how impactful it is when there is no water available, even for one hour. Our daily routine includes frequent water usage. Up to the fact that it gives us a lot of relevant information. The data coming from the daily use of the dishwasher, shower or toilet make us more aware of potential savings, and also tells us about the comfort and well being of an household. With water insight, solutions come to life.



Our vision
Water monitoring on Toon® can help you manage your water and energy bill. But in the near future this could indicate leakage in your home. And it will be able to monitor home activity – or the absence of this. Through anomalies behavior in these patterns, combined with Toon’s energy data, we are building services that can improve life and solve problems. 





Your ideas
Ideas about water monitoring that stick. We think about fun family apps that make low water usage a competition: parents can show their kids via a smart mirror in the bathroom they showered for too long. Toon connected to assisted living tools, so we get a notification when grandfather didn’t shower this morning.

Lab - Air Quality



World of Air Quality
We breathe, every other second. Out goes oxygen, carbon dioxide and damp. This exhaled air is circulated so that fresh air can be inhaled again. In other words: to stay healthy, the air you breathe must circulate freely. There are many elements that can cause poor air quality. High traffic locations, dense industry and even well insulated housing. The air you breathe is important, therefore it’s good to monitor the quality of it.







Our vision
Toon® is working on services that monitor and improve air quality in houses and buildings.  Toon measures air quality and advises you how to take action – like opening a window when more air circulation is needed. Toon also informs you on possible hazardous situations, such as high carbon monoxide or smoke levels.







Your ideas
We are looking for solutions that improve your air quality. Specifically in homes and buildings. Tinker on Toon and air quality monitoring services for houses and offices. Fueled with ideas? Let’s get in touch and start developing together. We don’t have all the solutions ourselves, come join us. Or even better, beat us, using our API.
