About

 YES, we know there are other Bluetooth trackers out there, and NO we are not just like them.

Other companies take a reactive approach and only help you find items once they’ve already been lost.

We focus on a proactive approach, preventing you from forgetting or losing your belongings in the first place.

Using our app and trackers, if you leave an item behind you will receive an automatic alert on your phone thereby preventing you from losing or forgetting to take your belongings with you. 

The way we prevent you from losing your belongings to begin with, is by having you group related items. Examples of these groups (a.k.a "Stacks") could be camping, snowboarding, hunting, or even photography.  

Stacks (groups) can even be things you use every day, such as computer and charger, baby stuff, or even a "General" stack for your keys, wallet, purse, or other things you always take with you.

Without any effort on your side, our algorithms detect when you have left your house and what groups (stacks) you are taking with you. If you are forgetting any of the items in a group (stack) that you have with you, our app notifies you and prevents you from forgetting those items. 

 By now, you're either thinking we're magic or that we're crazy. Let us explain....

Other companies who claim to have separation alerts have no way of knowing what items you intended to take with you, and what ones you intended to leave home. Because of this, they alert even if you intentionally left the item home.  For example if you had those other companies’ trackers on photography gear, but you meant to leave all that camera gear home, you’d still be alerted. 

That gets annoying.... fast. 

(faster than we got funded on Kickstarter, which only took 2 days)

With Stack, we know what groups of items you want to have with you based on if you have at least 20% of the items in that group with you when you leave home, and the app then only alerts you of items missing from those groups that you intended on taking with you. Still not sure how it works, because you skimmed through that last paragraph? (no judgment here) Watch the geofence video below to learn more about our "magic" patent-pending process.

 

 A geofence is a virtual perimeter around a geographic location. The geofence is often confused with a proximity around you/your phone; However, they are separate and serve different purposes.

With Stack, you will use the app to create a geofence around your home, office, hotel, etc. This is to prevent you from receiving false alerts when you’re within the comfort of your own home. When you are inside of the geofence, you will not receive alerts. 

As soon as you step outside of this geofence, the app will immediately start monitoring what items you have with you, and alert you if any items are missing from the group(s) that you have with you.

 STEP 1: Create A Stack 

STEP 2: Add Trackers To Stack 

STEP 3: Apply Trackers   

STEP 4: Set Geofence 

STEP 5: Sit Back & Relax 

Track more items than any other Bluetooth tracker company will allow. 

Currently, you can monitor up to 20 different items per device, allowing you to have several different groups at the same time. #MakeItRain

Step 1: Go to Kickstarter.com  

GOOD JOB, you’ve already done it. Now, the easy part: 

Step 2: Click the green “Back This Project” button

Step 3: Select which reward you want (there’s no wrong answer) 

Step 4: Enter your info and checkout 

Step 5: Get Excited! Just don't wait by the door... we're not quite that fast. 

SPECS:

  • Automatic alerts 
  • 4 attachment methods 
  • Track up to 20 items 
  • Battery lasts up to 1 year
  • Dimensions: 1.00” x 1.00” x 0.20”

*** Note *** 

Although our trackers are incredibly small, please do not let your children swallow one. That’s a terrible plan for keeping track of them. 

Under Promise & Over Deliver 

Our goal is to make your Christmas come early by delivering your rewards by December 2018. With any luck, we’ll deliver way ahead of schedule, but I doubt that’d upset you too much.

We’ve set a plan in place to try and stay on track with our fulfillment goals. We have already begun working with an experienced sourcing company to help us manufacture with the most qualified factories. We plan to have manufacturers start production as soon as we receive the funding.

We're Proud Of You!

You made it all the way to the end. We're proud, and grateful, that you took the time to learn about Stack (unless you just skipped to the end... cheater.)

If you've gotten to this point, and still don't know what makes us so much better than every other Bluetooth tracker on the market, then please contact me directly at parker@stackntrack.com so I can better explain it and learn where I failed you. (Again... unless you just skipped to the end, then you should just go back up and read a bit. We're talking to you James...)

Risks and challenges

We at Stack have been prototyping for the past 10 months, and while our app is ready, our hardware has had more limitations with prototyping. We've been 3D printing our case designs to have our design ready for manufacturing, and we've designed our PCB (printed circuit board) based on the semiconductors suggested specifications. Since the PCB (printed circuit board) is so small, we were only able to get one board successfully soldered by hand out of the dozen attempts. However, we have been working closely with manufacturers and expert sourcing companies to get the PCB (printed circuit board) and other hardware components to move through production as smoothly and quickly as possible. Unfortunately, there are always risks for delay of delivery. Our expected goal for fulfillment is December 2018.

Things that could go wrong and how we are avoiding them.:

1. Tooling, mold time, and other manufacturing issues.
- To ensure we do not over promise and under deliver, we have already begun working with manufacturers through our extremely experienced sourcing company. The injection molds are ready to be made and the PCB's tooling is a quick setup prior to production. The manufacturing timeline has been given a significant buffer to account for unknown problems.

2. FCC testing
- As the PCBs are manufactured, they will have to be tested for FCC compliance. While there is always a chance of the tests failing, and needing to tweak the PCB's design, we have given a buffer in our expected fulfillment dates to accommodate this unknown.

These are some of the most common problems among Kickstarter campaigns and each of them has been taken into consideration by our team so we could address them properly.

We know that unexpected delays could happen, but we're fully committed to ensuring all our backers will get the best product and on time. We promise to keep our backers well informed along this journey.
