Minut is a new way to secure your home without sacrificing privacy. No cameras. No wires. No complicated installation. The smart home alarm detects motion, monitors noise, temperature, humidity, and mold risk, ensuring your home is safe when you’re out and that you’re in a comfortable environment when you’re home. Minut works directly with your phone so you receive real time alerts when things aren’t right.

About Minut

Minut was co-founded by Nils Mattisson, CEO who spent seven years in Silicon Valley working in the Exploratory Design Group at Apple; Marcus Ljungblad, Head of Growth; Martin Lööf, Head of Manufacturing; and Fredrik Ahlberg, Head of Research with the idea that home security should be accessible to everyone and never come at the expense of privacy. Together they developed a smart home alarm that detects motion, monitors noise, temperature, humidity, and mold risk, ensuring your home is safe.

The first prototypes were developed in Shenzhen and they later opened their HQ in Malmo, Sweden. Minut now has offices in Malmo, Stockholm, London and have shipped over ten thousand units across over 60 countries.
