Neoji is a sleek and elegant device, with artificial intelligence that directs smart sensors to track nearly every movement or event in your home or office environment.

It’s new, and it’s going to revolutionize the way you take care of your family, your home, and our planet.

Neoji’s name sprang from Chinese origins, “Neo” meaning new, and “ji” meaning crucial moment or machine, and perfectly reflects the opportunity it provides for you and your home.

Neoji is a sleek and elegant device that functions like a Zen master for your home, creating a sanctuary of comfort, calm, and cost-efficiency.    

Neoji understands what is happening in your home at any moment, day or night.  Its artificial intelligence directs smart sensors to track nearly every event in your home’s environment.  It learns to ignore routine events in your home, while still alerting you instantly if the sensors detect any anomalous change or unexpected reading.  

When something unusual does occur, Neoji’s smart technology knows what to do.  You can program instant notifications to be sent to you, a family member, your doctor, or even the fire or police department if you’re far from home.  And caring for those more vulnerable family members is Neoji’s specialty. 


Whether it’s listening in to the nursery where your baby slumbers, or keeping tabs on your aging (and sometimes forgetful) parents, Neoji will alert you instantly of any problems or concerns.  Just like when your children are tiny and dependent, the same thing happens with our parents as they age, though they’re loathe to admit it!  They took care of you, now it’s your turn.  And Neoji will be your partner to ensure you’ll instantly know if they experience a fall, leave the stove burner on, or if there is an unexpected presence in their home.  

Soaring energy costs have taken their toll on consumers, who have little control until their bill arrives.  Neoji puts the control back in your hands, so you can track your energy and water consumption each day and take steps to reduce your consumption—and save money.

Neoji talks to all your smart devices—heating, cooling, lights, and even your fridge!  No, it doesn’t run down to the market for a bottle of wine, but if it’s possible, we’ll figure it out!

The true magic of Neoji lies in how it can benefit our environment.  You’ve seen the news reports, you’ve heard the statistics, and the news is never good.  At times, it’s easy to feel helpless and ineffectual, like you can’t do anything to make a real impact.  With Neoji’s guiding hand, you can make a difference, affecting concrete changes to your energy consumption, protecting biodiversity, and creating a greener community where you live.

INTELLIGENT, INTUITIVE, and USER FRIENDLY

Neoji will care for your home and everything it contains.  State of the art sound sensors can hear unusual activity; movement sensors can detect an intruding presence when no one is at home, and air quality sensors can detect humidity, a gas leak, abnormal temperature fluctuations, or the presence of smoke or other air pollutants.  

It can also arm parents with confidence.  Of course you know your child is in good hands with your nanny or babysitter, but have you ever felt that niggling sense, that urgency to just check in and be sure they are ok?  Go ahead, have a look.  Neoji gives you the reassurance to put your mind at rest.  

When anything happens, Neoji knows what to do.  You can program notifications to instantly be sent to you, a friend, a family member, the police, or even your doctor.  Even if you’re far from home, help will be instantly summoned.  

Neoji understands your home and learns its rhythms over time, and its sensors adapt to your needs.  

Life is complicated, busy, and at times chaotic.  Neoji is about simplifying your life and providing peace of mind.  Be your own Zen master, with the help of this single clever little device.  

SAFETY    SAVINGS     SUSTAINABILITY    SATISFACTION 

Whether it’s your home, your cottage, an apartment rental, or the office, Neoji is your go anywhere partner.  Neoji is portable and moves along with you, unlike traditional security systems.  

And you can monitor it from any smart phone or tablet.  Alerts are received instantly, from anywhere.    

You’ve got enough in life to worry about:  fixing the car, saving for your next holiday, figuring out how to dodge the next visit from your in-laws—there are a multitude of things we can’t control.  

Let Neoji help you with the things you can control—reducing energy consumption, saving money, and make our world a better place to live—for you and your children.  

Neoji is always with you, a perceptive presence that ultimately simplifies your life.  Who knew it could be so easy?  


The result is:

  1. Giving you the control over energy costs and consumption: soaring energy costs have taken their toll on consumers, who have little control until they get their bills.  Neoji puts the control back in your hands, so you can track your energy and water consumption each day and take steps to reduce your consumption—and save money.
  2. In addition, Neoji acts as a security device, and will care for your home and everything it contains.  State of the art sound sensors can hear unusual activity; movement sensors can detect an intruding presence when no one is at home, and air quality sensors can detect humidity, a gas leak, abnormal temperature fluctuations, or the presence of smoke or other air pollutants.  
  3. It can also arm parents with safety and confidence.  Of course you know your child is in good hands with your nanny or babysitter, but have you ever felt that niggling sense, that urgency to just check in and be sure they are ok?  Go ahead, have a look.  Neoji gives you the reassurance and put your mind at rest. You simply program notifications to instantly be sent to you, a friend, a family member, the police, or even your doctor.  Even if you’re far from home, help will be instantly summoned.
