Company making smart pool gate locks
The many children who are victims of drowning or near-drowning in home swimming pools each year motivated Fulton Schools software engineering student Kevin Hale and a business partner to develop the Halen Smart Lock. Their device designed to be placed on a pool gate contains a sensor that will send an alert to a phone when the gate has been opened or closed. The device enables users to deadbolt the gate so it cannot be opened. The venture has been supported by the Ashton Family Venture Challenge, which is part of ASU’s Startup Funding Network.
