iSmart Alarm, Inc. has announced the completion of their Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign, reaching their goal of $50,000 in under 3 weeks, and ending the campaign on April 1 at over 450% of the goal.  The fundraising campaign set an important precedent for the crowdfunding industry by launching at one of America’s largest computer trade shows.

In closing with over $226,000 raised by 1,600 contributors and customers, the iSmartAlarm Home Security System is the 7th most funded technology project in the history of Indiegogo. Manufacturing and assemblage is being completed, and the system is projected to begin shipping at the end of May.

During the campaign, as “Perks” for different levels of contribution, iSmart Alarm, Inc. offered different packages of their home security system, ranging from a dorm or studio to a large house. Contributors could also purchase the devices a la carte as well, and the CubeOne CPU understands and adds them to the network. The system communicates with the user’s smartphone, giving unprecedented access to monitoring, system control, and statistics to increase the safety of home, property, and family.

“The Indiegogo campaign was a great adventure, and we were able to pre-sale to hundreds of families and individuals that are in need of home security but don’t want to pay monthly fees or be locked into contracts. Our goal is to make the iSmartAlarm home security system affordable and available to every family,” said Raymond Meng, Co-Founder and CEO. “We were also able to interact with our customers and fans, evolve our current products to match their needs, and tailor our roadmap to more home automation and smart home devices for the future.”

Now accepting orders on the iSmartAlarm.com eCommerce platform, consumers will be able to purchase packages including motion sensors, door and window sensors, home remote controls and panic alarms, the streaming and pan-tilt iCamera (controllable at any time, from anywhere, from the user’s smartphone), as well as individual devices a la carte. As new devices such as home light control, thermostat control, glass breakage sensors, smoke and carbon monoxide sensors and water leak detectors are added, the user’s system will automatically update to include the new devices.

The idea behind the iSmartAlarm system first began when Steve Jobs’ home was broken into in mid-2012 while under construction, and over $60,000 worth of Apple products and personal belongings were stolen. The iSmartAlarm system integrates with the free iPhone App to allow the user to remotely arm, disarm, and monitor their security system from anywhere, at any time.

iSmartAlarm puts a 21st century spin on traditional security systems. The sleek, sophisticated system utilizes the iPhone to put home security and home control in the palm of its users’ hands. The iSmartAlarm home security system is portable, wireless and requires no contracts or monthly fees. In addition to keeping homes protected, iSmartAlarm has embraced the developer community, with an open platform intended to expand the abilities of the system and increase the speed of the evolution of home security.

“Our complete portal solution provides a community-focused business professional or organization everything they need to launch a compliant crowdfunding portal,” said Joseph Barisonzi, CEO of CommunityLeader, Inc. “As of today, no longer should cash flow be the barrier to building a crowdfunding portal.”

“Launching a crowdfunding portal is much more than an investor-facing website,” stated Jennifer Amys, CommunityLeader’s CIO. “It is about having the systems in place to effectively solicit and promote a qualified investment opportunity to a qualified investor, manage the settlement and fulfillment process, and then provide transparent ongoing support. A CommunityLeader crowdfunding portal has the power to manage all of the required and necessary steps.”

CommunityLeader’s financing option provides qualified portal partners the opportunity to minimize their upfront financial outlay so they maximize the resources they have for recruiting quality businesses and educating investors. CommunityLeader is offering three financing packages designed for individuals and organizations seeking to launch an integrated community-based crowdfunding portal.

“Everyone who wants to launch a portal has to consider whether to build their own system or to partner with an experienced platform provider,” said Scott Bachman, CommunityLeader’s CMO. “The CommunityLeader Portal Platform solution makes this an easy choice. For probably less than 20% of the cost of building out a proprietary solution, we can deliver a personalized portal with everything needed to solicit and sell securities in today’s regulatory environment.”

CommunityLeader is seeking portal operators who have deep connections in their chosen community. Communities may be geographic, industry, affinity or business model; and will evaluate qualified operators on depth of their business plan and their personal and professional attributes. With as little as 15% down, CommunityLeader’s financing packages cover the upfront license fee, configuration, custom development and training.
