Über uns

tye* is going to be re-launched soon. We learned valuable lessons on this first Kickstarter campaign of ours.  Rather than jump starting the campaign at the half way point, we decided on using the lessons learned and further evaluations to launch the campaign anew at a later date.  Thanks to our backers, we think tye* can then have the exposure it deserves.  Please check our site, as well as Facebook and twitter to be the first to know.

What is tye* about?

As citizens of the world in 2015, we work hard, we travel far, and we value independence. Yet there is no way to always be on the move, but never be afraid of losing our belongings. 

Sure, there are a few things out there that can protect some of your assets, or track your dear ones- but they're specific (only work for one scenario or two), they're weak, and they're expensive. Software, local alarms, physical locks, trackers- they all have limitations, and there's no solution that can combine all function in one product. That's why we set out to make tye*, the only 3-in-1 security system you can take anywhere and use on virtually anything.

Go into any store and see how much security $49 can buy you. And if you're not happy with your options, then maybe it's time you turned to tye*. 

We meticulously designed every piece of it to make it high quality and easy to use, while keeping costs down in order to achieve a great price.

 So, what makes tye* different, you ask? We decided to shift the security paradigm in two ways: 

  • from software to hardware- this way, you can protect your items before they get lost, rather than after; 
  • from bigger/stronger to smarter tools. Has anyone put a lock on a bike, only to find it cut and the bike gone? (let's face it, locks are not smart). 

tye* is a multi-patent pending security system unlike any before it. It works by tagging the item you want to protect with a device that is smart and can detect any intrusions. When that happens, it sounds an alarm locally (which is usually enough to deter thieves, drawing attention to the intrusion attempt-that's how car alarms work). But that's not all: it also communicates constantly with a small remote you keep with you at all times -and when there's trouble, you will be alerted, too. So you can keep an eye on everything and everyone- even when they're out of sight. Add to that an app that can alert your immediate circle of the intrusion with exact location, and you have a complete package. 

No wires, no installation, no monthly charges, no insurance required, no fixed equipment, no limitations. tye* is made of a hub piece that gets attached to whatever you want to protect, a remote you take with you, and a retractable USB cable to use when needed.

 To set it up, all you need to do is plug, activate and go- and you can do it all in 5 seconds.

You can use tye* if you're one of the following (and you probably are, if you're reading this!):

  • owners of smart devices: laptops, phones, tablets, cameras; 
  • people who travel with suitcases, briefcases and other luggage; 
  • people who carry their hobbies around (sport equipment, music instruments, craft kits, bikes- you name it); 
  • mothers on the go; 
  • pet lovers. 

tye* as your mobile alarm system

tye* as your mobile virtual lock

tye* as your mobile tracker for the little ones

 At the playground, amusement park, the mall

tye* as mobile tracker for your furry friends

At only 1 x 1 x 2 inches, tye* is the only security system that can fit in your pocket.

Different elements of tye* work in whatever configuration you need. For example: 

  • if you're at an airport dying to sleep but worried about your luggage next to you, all you need is the hub. If anyone tampers with it, it'll sound the alarm to wake you up and repulse any theft attempts;
  • if you're in a larger place, but still in short range, you can use both the hub in combination with the app (supported by Bluetooth protocol) or  the remote;
  • if you need long-range reach, you can use the hub in combination with the remote, which not only sounds the alarm but also becomes a wireless long-range bridge for the app.

 Through the tye* app, you can do quite a few things:

  • keep an eye on the hub and get alerts when there's an intrusion, when the signal is low between the hub and the remote, and when the battery is running low;
  • set up an emergency list: when there's an intrusion, your friends can be alerted, too, with an automatic message including GPS-location and time of the intrusion;
  • control the hub and remote operations: On/Off,  Pause, Mute/Unmute; 
  • setup configurations: alarm volume levels and tones, acceptable separation distance and battery monitoring.

 MTT PRESS RELEASES Perseus Micro Logic Debuts Tye* 3-in-1 Portable Security Posted April 17, 2015

      
    

While working on tye*, we’ve gone through many iterations, developed some remarkable technologies, and created a strong network of manufacturers to form a solid supply chain. With your help, we can realize the following steps to bring tye* to you…

(Note: in order to make sure that all backer information is up-to-date, we will we send backer surveys this Fall.)

We've spent the past couple of years taking tye* from an idea, to physical mockups, to working prototypes. From day one, tye*'s quality performance and versatility has been our number one concern, and we think you will love the result. Now we need your help spreading the word.

Please let everyone know about tye* by emailing, or forwarding, our Kickstarter page to anyone you think might be interested in a personal, infallible, portable security system. Like us on Facebook and Tweet about us, too! All your help is greatly appreciated !!!!

tye* has the potential to make safety accessible at all levels, and we still have many more inventions on our sleeve. But we can’t do it alone. In the age of Kickstarter, YOU have the power to decide which technologies become a reality. With tye*, we want to return the favor by giving you back your safety- and your independence.

Thank you for your support!

Risiken und Herausforderungen

There are high risks involved for mass production of any system in timely fashion. For tye*, the risks involved, indicated below, have been anticipated and we expect them to be under control:

------ 1) PCB manufacturing and component assembly:

We have PCB manufacturing and assembly partnerships both locally and in Shenzhen. The tye* system PCB's have been manufactured and tested using components supplied for small volume production. Moving to large volume, our production will be made using different components and other processes, which means they'll have slightly different properties than those we’ve tested. If any of these changes compromises performance, we will have to address them. We, however, feel confident about our partners to have a quick turn around for any necessary changes.

------- 2) Mechanical housing manufacturing and system assembly:

We have our mechanical housing molds tested locally in California and having have passed all their mechanical requirements. Customized fixtures and horns have also been tested for ultrasonic welding of the housing caps. We have assembled the tye* system locally and will need to finalize the large volume system assembly details based on the volume of the orders in the Kickstarter campaign.

------ 3) Specialized antenna manufacturing:

We have partnership with a special antenna design and manufacturing house in Taipei for the delivery and tuning of tye* system antennas in large volume.

------ 4) System software:

The elaborate tye* system software has been tested and is continuing to go through rigorous testing before the final release. We, however, have built in the upgrading capability of the software into the tye* system. Any bug fixes and future features can be uploaded to the tye* system after release additionally.

We will not release a system that doesn't meet our high standards, so we'll run endurance tests on every single aspect of tye* until it's ready. If something doesn’t pass, it has to be analyzed, fixed, re-tooled, and re-tested.

You get the idea—perfecting groundbreaking technologies isn't an easy process. As a result, our biggest challenge is getting it right quickly. We don’t want to rush or it will show in the final product, but we also don’t want you to wait a day more than necessary.

We feel confident about our timeline, and we have expert manufacturing partners who are eager to speed up the process, but our biggest challenge is staying on schedule.

Other than that, you can sit back and relax—with tye*, you’re going to get everything you hoped for and then some!
