Some cargo is
too precious to risk

Ride Nanny Beacon and App coming this winter.
Be the first to know.

What is Ride Nanny?

No one ever starts the day intending to forget their baby in a car. You are a good parent.

So were nearly 46 parents in 2018 already. Over 40 parents who simply got busy with something else and did not remember that their baby was asleep in the backseat.

Ride Nanny was created out of an urgent need to apply better, easy to use technology to remind caregivers of their most precious cargo.

We start by using new technology in a unique way. Beacons were introduced into the world in 2013. Beacons use Apple’s technology standards to allow mobile apps to listen for signals from the beacon.

The underlying technology used is Bluetooth Low Energy. Until now, these beacons have been used almost exclusively for advertising to customer as they get near a beacon or share information about a specific thing you are standing close to.

We have taken these beacons and adapted them to be placed in your and your caregiver’s car, one per vehicle. They have been pre-loaded to find the Ride Nanny downloaded app (the app is always FREE!). Once this connection is established, every time you enter your vehicle (app and beacon pair at a specific range), the app will ask if you are traveling with a child.

If yes, you click the start button. If no, it stays off. Once you arrive at your destination, if you are traveling with your baby, your phone will send you an alert to remind you of the baby.

The Story Behind Ride Nanny

In June of 2017, we became first time grandparents. I committed to watching my precious granddaughter several days a month, so her mommy could continue working. My ever-changing schedule, and not having had a baby to drive around for nearly 25 years contributed to a regular fear every time I had to go anywhere….

What if I leave the baby in the car?

No one ever starts the day intending to forget their baby in a car. You are a good parent. So were nearly 46 parents in 2018 already. Over 40 parents who simply got busy with something else and did not remember that their baby was asleep in the backseat.

We are any parent, grandparent or caregiver who never wants to forget.

We are a small but feisty team. Our backgrounds are varied. Start-up entrepreneurs, app designer funded by Shark Tank, business owners, product development, sales management, writers, mommies & daddies, grammies & grumpa’s.

We believe in looking at new technology with “what-if?” eyes. This helps us create inventive new products and services, and use current products in new ways. Driven to service and making our world a better place for everyone else who is trying to make the world a better place.

For Distracted Parents

Ride Nanny provides families with peace of mind that whoever is traveling with baby will not forget them on accident.

Statistics

These statistics do not account for the unreported heat related injuries from being left in a car.

  • On average, 37 children die left in cars every year
  • 2017 and 2018 have been the worst two years on record with 89 fatalities so far
  • Everyday distractions continue to be the number one reason these occur

it’s almost here!
