Comydo secures six-figure seed investment for its intelligent front door opener

Formerly known as "CiDO", the Comydo startup offers a networked door opening system with a barcode scanner that is designed to facilitate access to apartment buildings. With Comydo, parcel delivery staff are no longer standing in front of a locked front door or ringing wildly with all residents. "We are making the package the key to letting the messenger into the entrance area of apartment buildings," says CEO and co-founder Julian Wulf.

Uniberry GmbH, a spin-off of the University of Hamburg, once developed CiDO, a keyless access management system. After the conclusion of the last financing round one decided for a Re-Branding. In the long term, co-founder Julian Wolf hopes that this will lead to the development of a strong brand with recognition value. Comydo now uses the existing shipment labels and interfaces for shipment tracking to release the door. All relevant logistics service providers are connected and thus cover 95 percent of the B2C market. The property management can in turn open the door remotely to service providers by QR code or click. In addition, there are many other applications in areas where fast, flexible access is required. Examples include 24/7 collection and delivery of goods, access to co-working spaces, parking space management or special customer areas such as washrooms. The authorisation is generated "on demand" and made available to a constantly changing group of people via e-mail or receipt. Comydo also offers interesting approaches in the corporate environment: The digital service card on Smartphones or - Watches is aimed at.

The High-Tech Gründerfonds, the Innovationstarter Fonds Hamburg, and Anyon, a PropTech VC investor, are investing in the financing round. The investment in Comydo will help the Hamburg-based company to quickly build up a team in marketing and sales and accelerate product development.

Daniela Bach, Investment Manager HTGF adds: "There are already several providers in the area of access management, but no one has so far addressed the bottleneck of the front door opening at parcel delivery in such a brilliantly simple way as Comydo. The team thus solves a major problem with last mile delivery."

Dörte Bunge, investment manager at the Fonds Hamburg innovation starter, comments: "We were convinced by the intelligent but simple implementation process and the high usability of the software.

Dr. Dennis Lips, CEO at Anyon, adds: "Comydo improves the user experience for building users, increases the efficiency of the delivery process for logisticians and contributes to the reduction of CO2 emissions by avoiding empty runs and the possible postponement of delivery to secondary traffic times. Comydo shows the enormous potential that PropTech companies have for various stakeholders in the real estate industry".
