In 2015, Doug began development on SYBor™ as a project to automate a commercial hair salon run by his wife Anna. Anna wanted a way to remotely (i.e. from home) monitor the building since it was occupied by other tenants with access to entry/exit, lighting and climate controls.
Few solutions existed and were weak on features, expensive and just didn’t fit. SYBor™ was created to manage all of your smart devices based on “Internet of Things” (IoT) technology into a single application rather than having an app for each different camera, smart lock, light, thermostat, etc.
More than a fancy universal remote control for your home, SYBor™ leverages the latest developments in machine learning, ai and computer vision to learn users' behaviors over time becoming a virtual home assistant. Knowing when to adjust the thermostat for the seasons, periodically at random turn the lights & tv on when you are on vacation giving the appearance you are home, or events in tandem are a few of many things that will be learned. This ultimately brings savings, security, convenience and peace of mind while at home or away.
