maximized security- minimized alerts

We love privacy

Our Bushido app is user-friendly and integrates all of your home security visual sensors (Bushi) to the brain of the system (Do) seamlessly in a couple of minutes. We save you a lot of time, money and bandwidth by getting rid of unnecessary alerts: We only alert you when you needed to be! Our privacy-centered architecture will keep you away from the eyes of governments, corporates, advertisers and hackers.

Our Story

Like many GEN-X and millennials, we finally became house owners. Moving from an apartment to a house is a huge step: there’s no doorman, no security, and you often have a couple of neighbors, instead of dozens. The first week that my wife and I moved to our new house, we were scared and couldn’t sleep at night. Even our adopted doggies were scared too! We bought a handful of cameras from Amazon and we installed a couple of cameras from our old apartment. We received fake alerts a dozen times per day and sometimes per hour: either a moving tree or doggies going inside and out. It soon became frustrating! And we thought: there should be a better way. But in fact, there wasn’t! So we created one: Bushido, the first privacy-centered intelligent home security system!

Our Company

Based in Seattle, WA, Hummingbirds.ai is a privately held early stage startup. We started working on this idea in 2019 and established the company in 2020. Our team is small and agile.

We have a culturally-diverse team of talent, working to bring you the best security solution on the Planet. In fact, diversity is one of our core values.
