Fynoti is a Danish-based startup company that aims to deliver the most cost-effective home, personal and neighbourhood security solutions to its clients. Customers can buy a Fynoti for as low as $9 with no ongoing monthly fees.
The Fynoti home alarm system is a standalone, wireless device that users can place unobtrusively in their homes. It is ideal for a shelf or small table, for example. The system is completely wireless and runs on batteries that will last for more than a year. Users can interchange the cover on the device to find a look that matches with their decorative scheme. A wide range of styles and colours are available.
The system also comes with an intuitive mobile app, available for iOS and Android that allows users to control and monitor their system conveniently from the mobile device of their choosing. The free app also comes with an advanced neighbourhood watch system, which automatically connects users in the same neighbourhood together. This enables them to work together to help keep their neighbourhood as safe as possible. The more residents in a neighbourhood who use Fynoti, the safer the environment will be for everyone who lives there.
To help draw attention to this new product, Fynoti teamed up with strongman and actor Hafthor Julius Bjornsson for promotional content. People may know the actor for his role as The Mountain from the popular TV show Game of Thrones.
