About Us

Driven to help build the home of the future

Our History

The idea began with a simple home renovation project. Living in the heart of Silicon Valley, Premal Ashar wanted to automate certain aspects of his new home. However, the “smart home” solutions available at the time simply weren’t all that smart. They were just “obedient.” You had to tell them what to do before they did anything.

With his background in automated commercial sensor technology, Premal knew that he could design a simple and elegant solution: a solution that would truly deliver the Home of Future, a home that anticipates what people want — before they know they want it. This was the beginning of Nuro Technologies.
