  • Website:
  • Twitter: @TigerEyeSensor
  • Located in: Clayton
  • The Tiger Eye Security Sensor is a voice-activated wearable personal security device that links via Bluetooth to the user’s cell phone.

The device connects to a live operator that IDs the nature of the call, warns the perpetrator to leave, summons police, and photographs/audio records the encounter.

Target customer: Tiger Eye Sensor’s strategy is to manufacture products and sell them wholesale to home monitoring companies that will market TESS in order to benefit from monitoring contracts.

Tiger Eye Sensor’s monitoring partners also bring direct access to individuals who would like to mobilize their home monitoring service.

The initial target markets are college females and Realtors who find themselves alone with strangers in isolated locations.
