About this project
A 21st Century personal safety device? It's about time!
ROBORanger is the world's first ever personal safety device that doesn't rely on tethering or Bluetooth connection to a smartphone, or depend on a smartphone battery. It's also the first safety device with a 100% STANDALONE connection to 911 - providing 24/7 coverage virtually anywhere in the world.

Meet our Team
What good is a response in minutes, if you only have seconds? We focus on PREVENTION. After spending countless hours looking through crime deterrence journals, we decided our first product should be a simple and compact alarm. We found that alarms are PROVEN to deter criminals and force them to leave a crime scene. We first introduced the Sound Grenade, intended as a prevention mechanism to make prevention the priority. After a successful validation of our thesis, and receiving proven SUCCESS STORIES from customers, we are now launching the World's first connected personal alarm. Using our patent-pending technology, the ROBORanger is equipped with it's own GPS receiver and GSM (cell-signal) transmitter. Within seconds of activation, it transmits the user's exact coordinates to a professional 24/7 alarm monitoring center.
Evolution of the ROBORanger
We have manufactured and brought other products to market, but for a project of this size and complexity we'll be using a pool of experts in the field to make sure the ROBORanger is the best possible personal safety device the world has ever seen. Our manufacturing partner has built, certified and introduced multiple Best In Class connected and GPS-enabled devices in the market. They have an experienced team in the field to assist with quality control, shipping and and other logistics.
We want you to have your ROBORanger as soon as possible. Here’s our plan to achieve that:
- October/November: Make lots of new Kickstarter friends, incremental feature additions in manufacturing.
- December: Finalize reliability assessment.
- January: Attain FCC and other certifications (since this device is connected).
- February: Part qualification and pilot production, quality assurance and product validation.
- March: Volume Manufacturing begins.
April/May: Finalize Assembly, Packaging, Shipment Begins.

Risks and challenges
No one wants to see a good idea executed poorly, especially one that can save your loved one's life. We have worked extremely hard to ready this product for Kickstarter and full-scale manufacturing and fulfillment, but here are what we see as the risks:
MANUFACTURING: Creating the tooling to manufacture a product of this size is expensive and requires expert knowledge to get it right. We've previously introduced two products to market successfully, and have become experts at world-class logistics, supply chain management, and inventory. But as an added precaution, we're working with tooling manufacturers partners with a track record for prompt quality. We're partnered with world-leading manufacturers in the connected GPS/GSM industry.
PRODUCT ADJUSTMENTS: As the ROBORanger gets geared up for production, there will likely be some minor adjustments to improve the final product. Prototypes are always made to test and refine the product and allow us to incorporate our adjustments and those suggested by experienced manufacturing partners. These will always be for the benefit of you, the consumer, and we will let you know exactly how and why any changes are made.
FULFILLMENT: Sometimes things go awry that can’t be planned for: a supplier misses a deadline, a machine breaks down, or a shipment gets lost. Those things could cause a delay. To minimize the possibility of manufacturing setbacks we will enter the manufacturing stage with at least two back-up suppliers for each component. Additionally, our lead technical adviser has 20 years of research, engineering and manufacturing expertise here in Silicon Valley. We've already used his skills to delver our previous two products ON TIME.
We will be working with manufacturers who have years of experience delivering excellent products in tremendous quantities. There will no doubt be some surprises along the road, but any obstacle will be addressed by combining our internal manufacturing knowledge with external expertise, and an overall goal of making the best possible product for you, our priority customers.
Any pledge amount brings us one step closer to our goal of getting the ROBORanger in your hands. Help us make this incredible idea possible by clicking the ‘Back This Project’ button at the top of the page, or by helping us spread the word by sharing our page.
