About

The most intelligent wheel and tire tracking device ever developed

RimTech is an automatic, anti-theft and tracking system for tires and rims that sets off an alarm, notifies your phone, notifies police, and tracks the movement of your tires and rims should they be removed from your vehicle.

WHY RIMTECH?

We've integrated several technologies to create a system to not only protect but also recover your property on every front.

1. Alerts to an attempted theft with motion sensors and sets off an alarm.

2. Sends a notification to your and a pre-determined friends smartphone(s).

3. Sends vehicle information and location of theft notification to the police.

4. Tracks movement of stolen wheels down to a radius of 10 feet, tracking is activated by car owner with an app on their smartphone.

5. The camera inside the wheel snaps photos when triggered by light, and sends photos to your phone. This increases chances of identifying thieves by face, which will help a police investigation.

What We Do Differently 

Right now, the most commonly used device to deter wheel theft is wheel locks. These have been around for decades, and many professional car thieves don't have a problem cracking wheel locks to get a good payday. It takes seconds to break a wheel lock with the right tools. Wheel thieves work in teams, stripping your car of its rims in under two minutes, often with some damage to the vehicle. A car without wheels invites even more theft, and leaves you stranded without a ride.

Our Target Market

Those who live in areas where wheel theft is rampant will benefit the most from RimTech, but as news reports on the growing epidemic of wheel theft show, everyone is vulnerable. Tires and rims can fetch upwards of hundreds of dollars when resold, depending on the model of the car, even thousands. Some car models are more prone to wheel theft than others and tires can be stolen from your car in the least likely places. Comprehensive auto insurance will not always cover wheel theft, especially aftermarket and customized tires and rims. We're making RimTech and future products available for all types of vehicles including bikes, All-Terrain vehicles, all the way to 18-wheeler trucks.

RimTech Security System Hardware

Almost everyone will benefit from having extra security, and all vehicle owners will find RimTech essential to their arsenal:

> Owners who have factory installed OEM wheels or have invested in expensive, customized tires and rims.

>Owners who cannot keep their vehicles in a closed, secure garage.

Benefits of RimTech for Car Owners:

 > Gives drivers additional protection against tire and rim theft.

 > High chance of recovery of wheels should they be stolen. 

> Good chance of getting additional insurance discounts with RimTech system installed. 

> Discourage wheel theft in general, if the technology takes off and becomes more common. 

>Avoid wheel theft and avoid the hassle of filing a police report, paying tow fees, deductibles and waiting on car repairs.

 > Even with enough insurance coverage, it's still much more convenient to not get your wheels stolen in the first place, or immediately recover wheels that were stolen.

Rewards We Offer

For our generous supporters we're giving back: 

1. Early Bird - $299 

2. Street Protector 

3. Release of up coming products – flights and hotel accommodations for a party, including a meet and greet with us.

The first 200 buyers get the Early Bird Special, which is $249. While the Regular Project Price is $299, for the next 10,000 buyers. Our suggested Retail Price for RimTech is $329.

So far, we have two big investors but we want to keep some ownership of our invention and maintain control over development and production. To do that, we need to bring our own capital and our goal is to raise 50K. The funding will go to manufacturing costs, and the production of different fits and sizes to accommodate different kinds of wheels. With more control over production, we'll be able to grow the product line in more directions, much more quickly.

Meet The Team

RimTech is being designed for Project Overlord by former department heads at Nokia, in charge of Nokia's Mobility and Global Positioning Technology departments. Progetan: www.progetan.com  and FossilShale: www.fossilshale.com are designing our product from start to finish. Also hired for the patents, is one of the top Intellectual Property companies, Origiin IP Solutions: www.origiin.com that specializes in technology design patents. We have filed the patent for Project Overlord- Rimtech, Patent Application Number 62064489. Together, this group makes up the Project Overlord design team focusing on one goal...to stop wheel theft around the globe.

Risks and challenges

Because of our outstanding team of designers, technology consultants, and company staff we have put together for this project, our real only challenge is funding. That's why we need you, the world to help us get to the point of going to market. Everything thing else is just a matter of time.

How will we use your funding?

We will use it towards the $250,000 costs for manufacturing of our first 5,000 units, infrastructure, company, Kickstarter perks, shipping, product insurance, packaging & marketing to make our project available to the world.

All of the proceeds we receive from our Kickstarter campaign will be used to manufacture, grow and market RimTech globally. We aspire to help everyone avoid the horrible feeling of being robbed, when it comes to their vehicle wheels or their vehicle itself. Our production and development timeline calls for Project Overlord's first product, RimTech, to be in the public's hands by October 2015.
