comun / Products and Applications


In times of urbanization different social classes, like workers, apprentices, students and families from all over the world get in touch. As a result, we have to create new forms of communication. Comun is a device that generates an interconnection of neighbours within an apartment block. It helps leisure groups finding each other and planning activities or facilitates to document and to evaluate flat sharing communities´ finances. Comun is able to connect with washing machines to check occupancy without leaving the flat. Moreover, it connects with security cameras in the front door to make use of the hands-free equipment with image transfer.
