About the solution

Greyson Watkins suffering from deafness, created Wavio in 2015 when he moved out and faced the challenges of unintentionally making too much noise, or not hearing his girlfriend’s daughter cry.

Wavio is a sound capturing unit connected to the home Wi-Fi system. The device can be programmed to recognize any sound from the doorbell to a crying babe, and its sensitivity can be customised. When Wavio detects a programmed sound, it sends an alert to the connected device (e.g. smartphone, laptop etc.). Users can receive the alert on their devices by downloading the app.

Since 2015, when Watkins created the company, Wavio develops and markets sound recognition software.
