About

WHAT IS SCOUT

Scout is an amazing little device that reports its location to you 24/7, anywhere within reach of a cell tower. Scout packs GPS, cellular & Bluetooth into a 2.3” x 1.7” footprint - smaller than a business card. Put it in your child’s backpack or pocket, attach it to your dog’s collar, or put it with anything important.

CREATE CUSTOM SAFE & ALERT ZONES

Using your phone or computer, you can see where Scout is at any time. If Scout ever enters a danger zone or leaves a safe zone you've created on the mobile app, you'll get an immediate notification on your phone. Click on the notification, or push the Locate Now button anytime, and you'll see Scout moving on the map... in real time! So you'll know exactly where your child is, or your dog, or whatever is important to you.

INITIAL PROTOTYPES

We have gone through several iterations, improving each step of the way. Currently we have working prototypes in final plastic, with the apps created.

We'll be shipping Scout in Yellow and Black for our first production run (Shipping in Sept 2015.) We plan to add more colors in the near future, and may be able to include more colors sooner if we hit stretch goals (details coming soon)

THANK YOU!

We're building Scout with the most sophisticated and advanced GPS and antenna technology in the world. The app (iOS or Android) is intuitive and incredibly easy to use. You'll feel total comfort knowing where Scout is all the time, as it accompanies your loved one, pet or valuables.

Risks and challenges

We have been working for two years on the development of Scout.

We have assembled an outstanding team with a generation of successful start up experience, using our own resources, that understands what it takes to beat the shark.

We have completed the initial testing and obtained all the certifications, licenses and registrations. Most of the heavy lifting is done, so the normal start-up risks are behind us. We are now fundraising to help build the initial production run.
