tye* can be used as an alarm, virtual lock or tracker to protect valuables from theft or loss
SAN FRANCISCO, April 16, 2014- Perseus Micro Logic, the Silicon Valley startup focused on protecting personal valuables on-the-go, today announced the launch of its flagship product, tye*, through a Kickstarter campaign running from April 21st to May 18th. tye* is the first and only 3-in-1 portable security system on the market, and can be used as a mobile alarm for laptops and other electronic devices, as a virtual lock for non-electronic items such as luggage and strollers, and as a tracker for moving family members.
Each year over 500,000 laptops, over $30Billion worth of phones, and 1 in 100 suitcases get misplaced in the U.S. alone, with no easy, affordable, and adaptable way for the owner to prevent theft or loss. tye* addressed the need for an universal security system by creating a simple plug-and-go solution that is portable and can be used in a wide variety of configurations.
The tye* system is made of a hub, a remote, and a retractable USB cable. To use, the hub needs to be attached to the item that needs protection in one of three ways: either through a USB port, connected between the charger and the charging cable, or through a loop created with its own USB cable. Next, the hub needs to be activated through its keypad, or through a partner device (the remote or a smart device running the tye* app). If the hub or the item get disconnected, tampered with, or moved out of range, an alarm will sound on the hub, on the remote, and through the app.
“We are very excited to make this product a reality”, said Shahriar Ilislamloo, one of the founders and designers of tye*. Andisheh Sarabi, the other founder and tye* pioneer, agreed: “We know it will be very impactful, as it adds just enough security to our lives in public, while still maintaining our independence and mobility when we are on the go.”
