About

Technology is making the world safer than ever before, in turn granting us all a peace of mind that we could only have dreamed of in years gone by. That technology, however, is only as useful as we allow it to be. Unless we begin to incorporate cutting-edge advances into our lives, they are going to do us no good. With our free app, we are introducing a crowd-sourced community watch that far surpasses anything else that is available.

In the past, an incredible amount of processing power was required in order to recognize cars and license plates. That’s no longer the case: with our deep learning, highly-efficient algorithms, you will now be able to recognize the exact make, model, year, and color of a car plus read any visible license plate numbers right on your mobile device in real time. Just imagine what this sort of leap forward makes possible: anytime an Amber Alert is issued, all of the UnitedWatch Heroes (you) will become helpful eyes, saving precious time in situations where seconds and minutes count and time really is just that – precious.

Simply put, this is an app that is going to save lives. When a child goes missing, the users of our app will spring into action. Property crimes, assaults, kidnappings: we will fight back against these scourges with intelligence.

 Timeline and Budget

Your funding will help us successfully bring the UnitedWatch system to the world. If we meet our minimum funding goals, we'll start by creating the Android and IOS app, the website, all the backend webservices, and the computer training for the top 250 most popular vehicles in the United States. The planned release date will be in the fourth quarter of 2018. We do not want to stop there. We would like to start hitting our stretch goals and keep working full steam ahead to roll UnitedWatch out to more areas, in more languages, and with more features.

Rewards

When you support us you’ll enjoy insights into our progress and access to our team. Your support and feedback will help us make the best app possible. The sooner you back, the sooner we can get our app out to everybody!

 Aside from making a monetary contribution, you can help out by sharing our campaign with all your friends and family using the links above. This is an excellent way to spread the word about our automated community watch app. We appreciate all contributions, monetary and non-monetary alike, and we thank you greatly for your time.

Risks and challenges

We have already trained a handful of vehicle models along with a working beta version of the app, so I'm confident we'll keep developing with competence.
We will also need to add to our team. If this campaign is successful we will be looking to add additional programmers and team members to help train the vehicle models. Remote work is possible. We will be posting the openings/job descriptions after the campaign. If interested send us a message at info@UnitedWatch.org and we will notify you when it is available. Just to be clear - Contributing to this campaign will in no way impact our decision on potential employment.
Ultimately the success of the app will depend on how it is received by the people, however we guarantee that we will work hard and do our best to bring this idea to life.
