About

We all have family members that drive. Spouse? Teens? Wherever you live, the roads present issues that you would like to know about. Have you dealt with car accidents, breakdowns, or lost drivers? Ever had a car stolen or towed? Is your son getting his license? Is your daughter going on Spring Break? We want to give them freedom, but wouldn’t it also be comforting to know where they are and that they’re safe?

As a parent, I believe we all consider the dangers and hope nothing happens. We drive more than ever, but communication with our vehicles has fallen behind. Some car companies offer monitoring services - but high monthly costs, inflexible features and intrusive 3rd party operators leave a lot to be desired. These services are only available in certain models in recent years. They won’t cover you in a rented or leased car. If you want to monitor and assist your family when they need help, SafeNet has you covered.

SafeNet is a smart device that lets you track, monitor and talk to your vehicles. It’s small, rugged and easy to use. It works with your phone and home PC. SafeNet contacts you directly without the need for a 3rd party service or monthly fee. SafeNet puts remote access to your vehicle at your fingertips.

FleetNet - SafeNet's Big Brother

SafeNet is the home version of our successful FleetNet device, which tracks and monitors commercial fleets around the USA. For four years we've put every FleetNet through rigorous hardware + software testing before shipping it. We will be putting SafeNet through the same paces to ensure that every unit we ship works as advertised.

Risks and challenges

SafeNet uses hardware and software adapted from FleetNet. The unit provided minimal design challenges. We have years of experience designing systems with cell phones, GPS, g-force and temperature sensors.

We designed SafeNet with high-quality, readily available parts to ensure that we can produce, test and ship it on schedule. For ten years we have been manufacturing our electronics at MJS Designs, a world class facility that has our complete confidence.

http://www.mjsdesigns.com/

We chose to launch SafeNet on Kickstarter rather than eBay because its more than a store front. Its a chance to establish a dialogue with our users and exchange knowledge. We've shown you what we can do, and we want to learn from you. Tell us about your experience with road hazards like accidents and breakdowns. Ask us about our features. Come up with new ways to use SafeNet. We added temperature monitoring, but the suggestion for pet safety came from the wife of one of our engineers. You probably have your own ideas on how to use SafeNet. Share your creativity right here on the Kickstarter forum.
