Our Boilerplate


BuddyGuard makes homes safe with FLARE, an easy and intelligent home security system in a single device.
FLARE’s Artificial Intelligence relies on powerful sensors, hidden underneath its beautiful surface. Customers can make their homes even safer with add-ons like BuddySIM, which activates a 4G LTE connection when the WiFi is down.

The Berlin-based startup launched a successful Kickstarter campaign for FLARE in 2015, raising 202% of their goal. BuddyGuard currently employs 25 people in Germany and Romania.
