In November of 2019, my nonverbal autistic son, Hayden, lost three remote controls. After purchasing new remotes at $60 each, I thought there has to be an easy way to find a remote. The following year while visiting my Dad, I found out that his remote was missing, too. I ordered him a new one and then another one a few weeks later. This is where the idea for The Remote Retriever was born. In January of 2021, I took on two business partners and began the exciting path of making The Remote Retriever a reality.
First, I started studying, thinking this was something I could do myself. After learning about RFID, BLE and LoRa, I realized that I know that I don't know enough to do this on my own. Here is where I began comprising a team. I took on a general engineer, an electrical engineer, a CAD specialist/3D printer expert, an audio engineer and liaisons for factories. This team has proven to be incredibly valuable in the making of these devices. Patents, Trademarks, EIN, TIN, LLC and multiple social media accounts are a few of the things we have had to get while preparing to launch. December 2021 is the anticipated release date to launch The Remote Retriever. The devices will be available in your choice of black or white.
We hope to get to the point that we can donate a portion of our sales to AUTISM AWARENESS.
