What is Toggle?

Toggle is a child safety IoT device that allows children to call two different contacts and send an SOS message to a list of trusted friends and family when they are in an emergency. Parents and trusted contacts can keep track of the child’s location while they are away. This product allows children to be independent and form healthy habits at a young age. Parents can be relieved of their stress when their kids are on their own and spend less time and fuel driving them around.
