Risks and challenges
We were able to handle the miniaturization of GPS and IoT connectivity in a stand-alone device with a several-month battery lifetime. The availability of the small space inside a button especially when it comes to realizing high performance antennas for GPS and connectivity was very challenging.
When going the next step from a hand-made prototype to machine made (mass) production, product quality and product quality assurance will be a major challenge again.
We have plans to uphold a rigorous Quality Assurance plan and with our team, we have the knowledge and experience in the team to manage that process as we scale Secufy.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
