The world of item finders, or location devices, is becoming more competitive with a new entry to the space. Protag Elite, from Innova Technology, is crowdfunding on Indiegogo starting today and they took a leap right out of the gate.
With a stated goal of $100,000 the crowdfunding campaign leapt to over $13,000 in the first few hours showing ongoing demand and interest in this new location device. The funds are to be used manufacturing costs and quickly enter volume production – hopefully lowering costs for consumers.
Location devices are something everyone will soon have. I know I will be at the top of the list (as a gift for my significant other!). Simply the thought of never losing keys ever again should be enough to convince anyone to add this to your list of “soon to be purchased”.
Now what differentiates the Protag Elite from the crowd? First of all you will never need to replace this device. It comes with USB connector to recharge and holds a year long charge. The Protag Elite works with both iOS and Android platforms, allows back tracing so you can retrace items last known position plus leverages the power of the crowd. You may also use the associated app to lock down your phone while shooting a picture of the thug who just pilfered your smartphone.
The rewards packages start at $29 for a single device. Top reward is for $2000.00 if you have decided it is time to offer a location device as a product you would like to resell.
“It’s simple — after users place the PROTAG Elite into their belongings, they don’t have to worry about losing their valuables,” said Rick Tan, CEO for Innova Technology. “We help prevent you from losing your things and help you find them if they do happen to get lost — to bring you peace of mind.”
Protag Elite is being created by a startup company, funded by Red Dot Ventures, Innova Technology out of Singapore. They have already created similar loss prevention devices so they have the cred and background to put together a solid product for a global market.
