Hubsai, Inc.

Hubsai is the most secure, non-cloud home automation platform that makes smart home ownership simple, affordable and fun!

Introduction

Introduction

In addition to single-family homeowners, Hubsai also provides seamless home automation for multi-location property owners and multifamily property owners managing numerous buildings and units.

Deal Highlights

  • Revenue for the US smart home market is projected to reach over $41B by 2023. The smart home vendor landscape, however, remains fragmented and unsecure with no clear choice for non-technical homeowners wanting to automate their homes.
  • Hubsai is not only well-positioned to provide this choice for consumers via direct sales and installer/reseller channels, but also plans to roll out a smart home services delivery platform for telecoms and ISPs that can rapidly scale and grow the community of Hubsai users.
  • With customer privacy as our priority, Hubsai stores homeowners’ information on the local Hubsai Hub rather than on a public cloud. Unlike other smart home automation platforms, we are designed to provide a worry-free, positive experience for homeowners transitioning to smart home technology.

Business Model

Hubsai has set up 3 distinct sales channels to rapidly grow the business:

  • Direct consumer sales
  • Distributor sales (resellers, builders, and installers)
  • Direct multifamily sales.

We are targeting to have our first 1,000 installs completed by the end of Q2 2021. Hubsai makes a modest margin on the devices sold plus a fee per installation. Recurring revenue is based on a SaaS monthly subscription model. Customers pay a monthly subscription ranging from $9.99 per month for a Starter Kit install to $39.99 per month for SMB/Multi-location customers.

Testimonials

A testimonial emailed to us by a recently installed customer
“Your existing cameras and motion sensors already proved very useful last night. At 2:30AM I was awakened by a call from BAY Alarm, who told me that one of their motion sensors (independent from the Hubsai equipment) signalled an alarm. I quickly opened the Hubsai app, looked at all four cameras and the Hubsai motion sensors, saw that all was well, and was able to tell Bay Alarm that they could cancel the notification to the police. I then monitored the cameras for another 20 minutes, saw that there was no one in the building, and went back to sleep. Your product is great, and saved us a costly police visit (which Berkeley charges for if a false alarm).”

Hubsai currently has a 4.7 rating on the App Store. Here are a few of the reviews posted:

2 Months with the Hubsai app and loving it!
“My family was skeptical at first about setting up a smart home. But when one of my daughters came home after dark one night and could turn on entry lights and unlock the front door before getting out of the car, she was sold. She ordered more smart lights for her own room which we could easily add to our Hubsai environment and app. It’s easy to use, well designed, and adding or moving devices is a piece of cake! ”

A must have in today’s home
“I have used apps with similar purpose and functions before but Hubsai really brings all together for a non tech-savvy guy like me. It’s easy and quick to use. It’s versatile and in my humble opinion, it’s a cut above the other apps I have used before. I admit I have not yet utilized all its functions and capabilities but I’m on my way there.”

Well polished for nascent home automation
“App is well polished. I like that there is the ability to easily integrate with popular devices out there. Love the option to see the garage and control it cause I always forget if my garage is closed when I leave and that alone saves so much time and money having to loop back to check.”

Recommend to all
“Recently I got this app. It’s super user-friendly, and it’s nice to have everything in one place where I can be rest assured about the safety and electricity of my home. I would recommend this to people who want everything in one place and a few easy touches to control your house and its safety.”

Fantastic solution for a single home
“I don’t often write reviewers unless I’m unhappy about something. However, I couldn’t resist writing a positive review for Hubsai. Amazing platform that connects all home devices. Finally I can go to one platform to have it all. Very intuitive, connects seamlessly, and easy to use. Love this!”
