About

What is the the YEPZON™ FREEDOM?

The new YEPZON™ FREEDOM is a one-button Personal Safety Alarm and Global Locator that notifies friends, family, and first responders when you are in trouble and lets them know your location immediately.

According to the Center for Missing and Exploited Children, roughly 2,000 children are reported missing each day in the United States, and more than 100 per day are cited as "stranger abduction." These numbers grow higher when we consider the elderly, children with autism, pets and other vulnerable groups.

We have alarms for our cars. We have alarms for our homes. Some of us even have GPS locator tiles for our valuables and pets. Why not have a Personal Safety Alarm that lets people know you're in trouble and your exact location with the push of a button?

This is where YEPZON™ FREEDOM comes in. With a built-in, worldwide locating device and a battery that will last up to one year in Personal Safety Alarm-mode -- you can have peace of mind that help will be there when you need it.

YEPZON™ FREEDOM you get so much more than just a Personal Safety Alarm. This is the only Personal Safety Alarm and Global Locator that gives you the choice of three-modes to use.

With YEPZON™ FREEDOM you can:

  • Activate Only the Personal Safety Alarm Button 
  • Activate Only the Locating Device
  • Activate Both Personal Safety Alarm and Locating Device
 

With YEPZON™ FREEDOM you can locate people, pets and things with the most accurate tracking system in the world. The YEPZON™ FREEDOM uses constant tracking rather than tracking in intervals like standard GPS locators.

Why does the YEPZON™ FREEDOM’s system offer you the absolute best location information in the world -- even indoors? Because we have integrated all of the following technologies:

  • 3G
  • WiFi
  • GPS

The YEPZON™ FREEDOM syncs with your cell phone through any WiFi connection and guarantees 100% data security. With this device you will have a SIM card embedded inside that gives you complete freedom by working separately from any cell phone services. There's no need to sign up for a contract or make any commitments. It's ready to use right out of the package and you can purchase as much or as little data as you want directly from the app.

Why is it better than a cell phone?

Here are a few reasons YEPZON™ FREEDOM stands out:

  • The extended battery life is unsurpassable. It lasts anywhere from several months up to a year depending on the setting (as opposed to maybe 8 hours for your cell phone).
  • It alerts multiple members from your circle of friends and family with one button. No need to dial multiple numbers and texts into a phone in the middle of an emergency.
  • It instantly sends, and updates, your location to everyone in your group.
  • There is no ON/OFF button, so you won’t have to worry about children or pets accidentally switching it off.
  • It is especially useful for children and the elderly who may not have access or the ability to make a cell phone call during an emergency.
  • It can be easily attached to a pet’s collar to help you locate them if they ever go missing.

One button reaches out to multiple people and lets them know your precise location -- with no distance limitations, no battery problems, automatic location announcements and updates, and no need to spend time thumbing through cell phone numbers (assuming your phone’s battery even has life).

The YEPZON™ Story

The need for a simple, reliable solution led us to our first commercial product, the Yepzon™ One (www.Yepzon.com). The number one question was: "When will the device work as a personal safety alarm on its own?" Well, we're proud to say that we can finally answer that question.

With your support, YEPZON™ FREEDOM will be the only device available that works as both a Personal Safety Alarm and the world's best Global Locator for the elderly, kids, valuables, solo travelers, and others who want a simple, one-button solution to personal safety.

Cost & Production Timeline

The retail price will be $159 + $4.95 monthly usage, covering USA and Europe, and will be charged through the app. We've finished the design and our established partners are in alignment -- with the shipping date in September 2016. With your support we can get the YEPZON™ FREEDOM into your homes. We hope you'll join us. Thank you!

 Meet the Team

Based in Tampere, Finland, we're a small group of people with technology backgrounds who faced the fact that over one million women and children are reported missing every year in the US and European Union alone -- 10% of them vanish permanently.

We're working tirelessly to combine our key competencies to reduce this problem of personal safety. Our team is headquartered in Tampere, Finland (1.5 hours north of Helsinki) with key executives in Southern California.

Thank you for your support and please share this campaign with friends who might be interested on Facebook and Twitter.

Risks and challenges

Because of our experience with the first generation Yepzon™ locator product, our team is well-prepared to implement the production and launch of YEPZON™ FREEDOM. The device requires no approval or premarket review from any outside companies or agencies before we can distribute rewards. All of our original vendors and third-parties from our original successful product launch have remained on-board for the next evolution.

However, we know that life is not always predictable and there might be unforeseen troubles waiting for us on the road to mass production. We've established a strong partnership with our manufacturers and we've manufactured the first generation Yepzon on a small scale already. We will leverage this network to ensure we can bring YEPZON™ FREEDOM to life and into your hands.
