For those who love technology but are not experts, it's easy to use, like downloading apps on a smartphone.
For those who want to make something new and know how to, it's the best way to do it.
OPEN-EYES is a NEW WAY TO EXPERIENCE video door phones and its open-source architecture is what makes it possible.
An OPEN-EYES for everyone!
Curious and open to everything new. Extremely profitable and interesting work experience in the 90s (... almost one or two lives ago) as personal assistant to the CEOs in various companies (A.C. Nielsen, Computervision, Schering-Plough), then as mother and "peasant" by choice.
I feel the need to rethink myself as a complete person and not just as a mother. It is a challenge that makes me want to learn new things and value the input received from my previous work experience. OPEN-EYES makes me feel eighteen again!
Massimiliano Negretti - Founder & CTO:
Married to Alessandra with two sons, Davide and Andrea.
For 30 years I have been involved in the development and design of telecommunications equipment. I still belong to the generation that with a "humble" high school diploma in electronics and telecommunications could think of being able to work and grow professionally. I became Research and Development Manager for one of the historical, but alas now rare, Italian telecommunications companies. The devices designed by me are used by the major national players (TIM, Selta, Enel, SNAM gas network, etc.).
I love building, hence the crazy but uplifting experience of renovating our farmhouse and building anything that can help us live better; and here comes OPEN-EYES, the IOT startup that does not propose to solve all the problems in the world, but to improve your everyday life!
I transformed my interest and my passion into my job.
Massimiliano is the true brain of OPEN-EYES, which would not exist without him.
Davide Negretti - Founder & MARKETING MANAGER:
class of 1999, classical lyceum diploma, now enrolled at POLIMI, currently studying Aerospace Engineering.
Creator of OPEN-EYES, a smart, open source video door phone with added value services.
Curious and anticonformist, he is the "voice" of OPEN-EYES, especially when that voice must be speaking english!
"I'm taking care of marketing and this experience is enriching me, impelling me from the regimented life at school into the new and exciting world of IoT startups, a world where you must learn and change every day. With OPEN-EYES, I am investing on my future.
...and it helped me discover that my parents aren't so old! They've got cutting-edge ideas!"
