“Where’s Your Hiro?

On average, people misplace over 3,000 items a year. How much time have you wasted looking for lost stuff?

This is the Hiro, a bluetooth thing finder which users activate via a smartphone application, smaller than a dog tag. Compatible with both Apple and Android devices and operates up to 200ft away.

Hiro allows any user with a smartphone to activate an alarm on the device which will alert you to the Hiro’s location and whatever item is attached to it. Hiro is the world’s most consumer friendly location device that is easy to use, available in multiple colors and works with both Apple and Android devices. The Hiro is much smaller than other existing tracker devices so you can find your items at a greater distance and more comfortably.

                        ***The Application is open source and free to download***

Application will be able to support multiple Hiro devices on your phone via the button on the Hiro which is used for pairing. The Hiro is also water resistant.

In a cool twist the Hiro allows you to locate your phone from the unit itself.

      And most importantly, Hiro is Designed and Assembled in America!

 Find your items easier

The Hiro is priced well below competitors and would make a great Christmas Gift for forgetful friends or family members

Dimensions

0.985in wide X 1.8in length X 0.25in thick (25.3mm X 45mm X 5.2mm)

We are proud to announce that the Hiro has been Designed and Assembled in America! We are working with a product design company right here in Melbourne Florida known as Jaycon Systems. Jaycon is well known for their manufacturing, circuit board and plastic injection molding capabilities.          

Risks and challenges

Collectively the Hiro team is comprised of experts in plastic manufacturing, circuit board assembly, distribution, and production. Without a doubt our Hiro team is ready to face unseen challenges and bring the Hiro to life. Unlike many projects which may not deliver their product in a timely manner, we are specialists that work around the clock to ensure our customers (backers) will receive their products as described and on time!
