Del Marth LLC has launched a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter to raise funds for a new bluetooth tracking device called StoneTether, that operates with a real-world range of 500 feet. Providing the first micro-device that provides this massive distance with a tracker that is just about the size of a quarter. As you would expect, the StoneTether device works with it’s own smart-device application covering both iOS and Android users.
The application gives StoneTether owners the ability to track items that are lost and tethering functions that prevent you from being separated from items. However, the main focus of the tethering aspect of the StoneTether system is the ability to warn if children stray beyond set distances by parents. Co-founder of Del Marth LLC, Ehrien Marth stated, “The tethering function is especially useful for parents who are at a busy event and need to keep track of their kids; a situation I have been in quite a few times myself.”
Besides distance, the most unique feature that StoneTether provides users is a novel solution for items that users want to bring to an event on their calendar. Customers are able to add items attached with a StoneTether device that they want or need to bring to any event on their calendar. If the user leaves for an event or trip without a StoneTether they have attached to luggage, computer, medication, etc., they immediately get a notification and alert that they have forgotten the specific item(s). “We wanted to create not just a ‘where are my keys’ device, rather something that just makes people’s busy lives a bit easier,” says Mike Walton, Co-Founder.
“This is something we like to refer to as Life-Automation,” explained Ehrien, “It’s the ability to use technology to track and find anything, keep a watch over your kids, and check inventory for a trip; we provide this at a useful 500 foot distance that makes any other tracker obsolete.”
The StoneTether’s features include:
StoneTether currently has a crowdfunding campaign through Kickstarter, providing backers pre-orders that are scheduled to fulfill in March 2015.
