I moved into a new home and needed a way to stream music to every room in my home. I needed it to connect to my music sources, online. And I couldn’t afford to rip up drywall to install wires (the old way) or to buy into an expensive, proprietary wireless system. Since we couldn’t find what we wanted on the market, we set out to build it. My co-founder and I had both software and hardware development backgrounds from our time at Google, and we were pretty sure we could get this done. It was a LOT more work than we could have guessed, but we persevered, believing that we could build something better. We think we’ve done that with Beep.
What differentiates your product from similar products out there?
1) Beep works with any speaker with an AUX or optical input. Use the speakers or hi-fi you already have to stream synchronized multi-room music with Beep.
2) You can control Beep from directly within the music apps on your phone. Tap the cast icon in Pandora or Spotify to play your music throughout your home.
3) You can play, pause, skip tracks, and adjust volume directly from the Beep dial.
