Happy New Year, Superheroes! :fireworks:

We are proud to announce the new logo as part of the ongoing evolution of Alfred!

Introducing Our New User Interface >


Our New Look

Our logo is the main identifier of our brand. Its main task is to build brand recognition and to be a visual representation of who we are and what we stand for.

With continuous user growth and product optimization, we feel it is time to refresh our logo to cater our users with better services in times to come.

After careful consideration, we have chosen a new logo that presents our spirit in a more contemporary style, helping to align our products and online presence to reflect a shared purpose of providing handy home security at your fingertips!


Symbolic Meaning

Serving our users in 138 countries globally, Alfred has been thinking about how to be more inclusive to every user regarding every scenario. We hope our brand work around the world and the mark can be descriptive and friendly to everyone. So here we are!

The new logo features very simple shapes to depict a “home” and a “play” sign. Using interesting colors and potentially some overlapping color multiplication, this mark shows Alfred’s simplicity and friendliness, which are our core value.


Visual Identity

We use a warm orange paired with yellow, as a true evolution from the current brand color scheme with a fresh and modern spin. Using a subtle dark grey instead of pure black makes this feel a bit more friendly but still professional.

Stylised by geometric elements, the new logo reflects a new era of Alfred, one that better represents our mission, what we do, and how we operate.

Branding that Runs Deeper

Over the next few months, you’ll see all the other visuals around Alfred aligning around this new direction: on the website, in advertising, and in some places in the product (though not in a way that will keep you from the important business of home security, of course). It’s still us. We’re still Alfred. But more consistent and, we hope, more instantly recognizable.
