AvairSense is so much more than your average camera company. They are on a mission to create the most intelligent security cameras on the market. Founded in 2020, the Bangalore-based company (originally their journey first began focusing on businesses.

Invention and Early Success

AvairSense was founded by three young students from SRM University - Sourav Sanyal, Miran Junaidi, and Saurabh Ghanekar in their final year of college.

They participated in hackathons such as Developer Week and Minerva Hacks. Participating and winning at the LA Hacks, changed their fortunes for the better.

This win got them a seat in TechCrunch’s Disrupt Berlin 2019, which finally led them to start up in 2020.

The trio recognized that the potential of existing CCTV cameras was underutilized, and the common challenge that businesses faced was effectively monitoring observation.

The solution was software that would transform them into intelligent virtual auditors.

The initial product integrated the platform with existing CCTV infrastructure, analyzing video feeds in real-time, and identifying pre-defined actions and objects.

This "virtual auditor" system helped businesses monitor standard operating procedures, to ensure factors like proper hygiene practices in restaurants, safety practices in factories, etc.

The innovation and potential of were quickly recognized, securing seed funding of $120,000 from Indian venture capital fund 100X.VC and Amara Ventures.

And in 2022 AvairSense has raised $500K in their latest funding round with Y Combinator.

AI Security for Everyone
AvairSense realized that their technology has a broader potential and so they turned their head towards the home security market. This shift led to the innovation of their flagship product, the Sense 1 smart home camera.

The Sense 1 boasts of AI features like:

  • Motion detection: Utilizing a privacy-focused PIR sensor to trigger motion detection, ensuring user privacy while still keeping an eye on things.
  • Detects and analyzes movement: Sense 1 doesn't just detect movement; it analyzes it. Using AI, it can distinguish between people, pets, and vehicles, sending you relevant notifications.
