About

With the incredible growth of our Jayster Keychain, not to mention the eternal need to find lost valuables, our major backers requested that we produce a slim wallet version - the Jayster Wallet was born. Understanding that the valuables lost most often are keys, followed by wallets, one engineer, Joaquin, decided to create an effective solution to fight forgetfulness by enabling a phone to pinpoint the exact location of your wallet with its Bluetooth-enabled device embedded inside. With experience on his side, he decided to create a slim, credit card-shaped device that could easily slip into your wallet or purse without adding much weight or volume.

The success of our first Jayster Keychain allowed us to move into a larger design house and expand our development group. With a passionate and experienced team in place, we decided to focus on making the device as thin as possible without sacrificing its battery life. Once we had our full team and manufacturing house in place, we had all the tools to begin manufacturing our next game-changing product.

Jayster is building an online nest to keep in touch with fans, friends, and, of course, bird lovers. Connect with us on Facebook and Twitter to receive exclusive updates, Jayster news, and special offers! 

The iOS/Android app (compatible w/ iPhone 4S and 5) has four user-friendly features.

  • Alarm mode: Sounds an alarm to help find your Jayster Device.
  • Find mode:  Includes a hot/cold sensor that indicates how close you are to the device. 
  • Nest mode: If your phone and Jayster separate by more than approximately 15 feet, an alarm will sound on your keychain and your phone. You can use this feature in restaurants or at work to prevent you from leaving your valuables behind.
  • GPS mode: Find the location where your phone last tracked your Jayster device
  • Android-powered Bluetooth Smart Ready devices running 4.3 OS or later
  • iOS compatibility: iPhone 4S: iOS 5 / iOS 6 or later; iPhone 5: iOS 6 or later
  • Replaceable battery: Model: Three CR2016 Lithium Coin Battery, (avg. battery life: 18 months)
  • Wireless technology: Bluetooth® 4.0 / Bluetooth Smart
  • Range: 0-150 feet (50-foot limitation may be embedded in your iOS or Android device)
  • Size: 78 mm X 49mm X 5.5mm
  • Durable Plastic: ABS
  • FCC, IC, CE, and Bluetooth® 4.0 certified ISM 2.4GHz
  • Made in the U.S.A.

Our minimum goal is 500 units, and we will create the Jayster Wallet in-house with our new Injection Molding machine.By reaching this minimum level of 500 units, we can guarantee a lower cost of producing this new Jayster product. Production will take an estimated 4-6 weeks: we have to outsource PCB production and soldering of the component parts (2 weeks), produce the plastic housing, and coordinate the final assembly, packing, and shipping (5-7 days).

Our fulfillment plan is as follows: 1) Receive Kickstarter orders, purchase components parts, and submit and receive the design (circuit board); 2) Place components on the PCB board and create the plastic housing; 3) Assemble all components into the plastic housing, package the Jaysters, and ship the orders to our customers.

We founded Jayster after working for more than a decade as corporate citizens in the technology field; we wanted the Jayster brand to symbolize the freedom we felt after leaving corporate America and creating our own innovative and beneficial tech start-up! 

Your contributions will do more than help us launch our second product; you will directly support our purchase of an injection-molding machine so that we can reduce the cost to our backers. Thank you for your time and consideration – with your help, we’re looking forward to many years of making products that can make life a little easier for everyone.

Risks and challenges

This will be our second large production run of Jaysters, so we understand the challenges involved in getting the final product manufactured on time. Delivery time will vary depending on how many orders we receive. Manufacturing and in-house assembly both require a great deal of labor, so we chose to invest in an injection-molding machine and a larger production facility to help keep costs low and still keep up with the high demand for our products.

We promise to do everything in our power to meet our late November shipping deadline and will keep you posted on our progress with daily or weekly updates.
