Because you don’t have eyes in the back of your head and your toddler is a born sprinter.
Wheresie. Where your child is close and safe even when far away. Peace of mind.
As parents, our first instinct is to protect our children and keep them safe. Unfortunately, we hear news reports all the time about children forgotten in hot cars and child drownings. Even while in the most capable, conscientious hands, these startling statistics show just how easy it is for tragic, but preventable accidents, to happen anytime, anywhere. We developed Wheresie to help prevent these kinds of accidents.
- Since 2000, more than 500 children have died from heat stroke because they were left in cars on warm days. (Source: KidsandCars.org) and more than half of heat stroke deaths occur because a caregiver forgot the child in the car.

- Roughly 30 percent of heat stroke deaths occur because the child got in the car without a caregiver knowing and couldn’t get out. (Source: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and San Francisco State University’s Department of Geosciences.)
- 75 percent of the children involved in swimming pool submersion or drowning accidents were between 1 and 3 years old and 77 percent of the swimming pool accident victims had been missing for five minutes or less when they were found in the pool drowned or submerged.
