The 1st warranter of trust between riders and insurance companies.
Patent application approved by WIPO
Security, Accountability, Streamlined Integration
Conceived to lower the cost of theft insurance, Guard+™ is the world’s first situationally aware bike lock. It confirms locking on stationary objects, actively deters theft and uploads locking data to the theft coverage provider.
A robust locking process recognition technology that enables:
Pole / wheel locking detection
Active bike locking reminder
Pre-cutting alarm warning
Accurate theft reporting
Why is the situationally aware technology of Guard+ needed?
People tend to underestimate the probability of theft when their bike is insured. Anonymous surveys have found that up to 54% of claims are fraudulent, due to undeclared improper locking by the riders. Guard+ can remind absent-minded riders to properly lock, if they stray away with the bike unlocked. To provide transparency, Guard+ can inform the insurer of the type of locking prior to theft.
How does the situationally aware technology of Guard+™ work?
Universal mounting on the bike's frame
(can fit 90% of e-bikes).
Auto-charging from e-bike
GPS Tracking (in lock/inside the e-bike)
Looks just like a regular chain from the outside
In-link positioning electronics
Stainless steel links
Durable fabric cover
A 3D visualization of the bike-pole-chain shape is uploaded using inexpensive, off-the-shelf electronics.
Based on that information, the theft coverage provider can:
Know whether the bike has been locked around a stationary object.
In case of theft, know how the bike was stolen.

We are actively seeking for partners to commercialize the tech inside Guard+. Start with a demo, where we can build together a showcase that pushes the boundries of connected insurance.
