Innova Technology, makers of the PROTAG Elite, today announced the launch of a crowd funding campaign through Indiegogo to help lower the cost of this comprehensive loss protection device - and make its tracking technology available to the masses. The company's goal is to raise $100,000 to reduce manufacturing costs and enter into volume production of the PROTAG Elite - which will lower costs for consumers. Here's more info on what Protag can do for you:
Left your briefcase in the airport terminal? Misplaced your wallet? Forgot your phone at the restaurant? Lost your child's backpack? These panic-inducing situations can all be avoided with the PROTAG Elite. A Bluetooth Low Energy device that works with iPhones and Androids, the PROTAG Elite's automated system alerts you when your belongings are left behind - and indicates their last known GPS position. About the size of a credit card, the PROTAG Elite easily slips into your briefcase, handbag, wallet, or luggage - it can even go with your child. Designed to last for decades, the PROTAG Elite is unlike other loss protection devices and features a built-in USB port to recharge the battery. Each charge is good for a year making it economically and environmentally friendly.
With PROTAG Elite, your phone will alert you when your valuables get too far away from you. If you lose your phone, simply login to your online PROTAG Trace account, a cloud-based application, to track it - and what once was lost is now found. With PROTAG Elite, up to 10 valuables can be tracked on a single phone within a range of 100 feet.
Don't lose your stuff:
* Retrace Your Steps - Easily search for your valuables - the PROTAG Elite app remembers where they are. * Set and Forget - Long lasting batteries mean uninterrupted protection, simply charge your PROTAG Elite once a year via the USB port - it's built to last. Alternative solutions must be replaced entirely each year. * It's Smart, Intuitive and Automated - The PROTAG Elite's Smart Alert notifies you in real-time if you've forgotten your things; Smart Locator records the date, time and location of the lost item; and Smart Radar scans to find missing items, then plots them on a radar screen. * Stands the Test of Time - Economically and environmentally friendly - the PROTAG Elite is designed to last for years. * Track 'Em All - Protects up to 10 valuables on a single phone at once. Log in and track them back. * Find Your Way - The PROTAG Elite radar makes it easy to look for your valuables.
'Early bird' pricing of $29, including shipping, will be given to the first 1,000 backers. Innova Technology will introduce its new Crowd Tracking feature in December 2013, which extends the reach of your PROTAG Elite by enlisting other owners to help find your valuables. Engage the power of many - once you set an item to 'lost' status, all other PROTAG Elite Apps will be looking for your lost item.
