  • Mi-Zone Bluetooth Proximity Alarm

    Protecting the centre of your world: Mi-Zone’s miniature device ensures none of your valuables strays too far from your person.

 

Overview

Customer: Mi-Zone

Platform: iOS, Android

Solution: Bluetooth

Type: Consumer

The Smartphone is increasingly the centre of our digital lives. It’s the repository for our pictures, our music, our social networks, our emails and our calendars. So we want to protect this crucial device, but we also want to protect the possessions around us.

Mi-Zone’s Bluetooth proximity alarm allows you to do just that. The keyfob-sized devices triggers alerts on both itself and your smartphone whenever each strays more than a user-defined distance from the other.

Mi-Zone can be used to protect your keys, bag, bicycle or even your pet – as well as your smartphone.

 

“We knew that to deliver on this project we would need a partner with a breadth of resource, experience and expertise across platforms. Having looked at three providers we decided Penrillian gave us the greatest confidence and felt like they were people they wanted to work with. That decision has proven to be the right one,”

– Philip Jarrett, Mi-Zone - Founder
The Challenge:

Turn a great prototype into a cross-platform success: that was the challenge for Penrillian.

Philip Jarrett, founder of Mi-Zone, approached Penrillian in late 2010. He had a working device that was almost ready for the market, and a prototype application running on a Nokia feature phone. The challenge for Penrillian was to take this prototype application, migrate it to all of the major software platforms, and ensure it had the slickness and robustness that consumers demand.

Objectives:
  • Develop application for all major platforms, starting with iOS and Android
  • Take advantage of the different strengths of each individual platform
  • Maximise performance leveraging full capabilities of Bluetooth protoc
  • Ensure great user experience and total robustness
