Scout was born when one of the founders went to buy a home security system for his new house in Chicago. He quickly found that, not only is home security 20 years behind the times, it's so expensive that 83% of homes in the USA go without. With that, the team went to work. In February of 2013, Scout launched an independent crowdfunding campaign to pre-sell its devices. Within 30 days, Scout exceeded its goal. Since then, over $500,000 worth of systems have been sold. Scout was possible because of people like you - backers who shared a common problem and common vision. Our customers gave this company its start and their needs are what drive our company daily.
