Our story

Nils Mattisson, our CEO and Co-founder spent seven years in Silicon Valley working in the Exploratory Design Group at Apple before starting Minut. He had the idea that he wanted to make home security accessible to everyone, because every home should feel safe but never at the expense of the privacy in the home.

The existing solutions for home security were either expensive, required professional installation or included Wi-Fi connected cameras. People don’t want cameras in their home though, how can you create a feeling of comfort and safety if you have cameras that record every move you make in your home?

Nils decided to leave Apple and Silicon Valley and return to his native Sweden where he joined together with three co-founders; Marcus Ljungblad, Martin Lööf and Fredrik Ahlberg with the mission to create a product that would make home security and monitoring accessible to everyone, providing you with peace of mind, without having to compromise the feeling of privacy in the home.

Because every home should feel safe.

So Minut was born.
