John Harris, a family man with a knack for inventing, witnessed the terrifying moment when his autistic niece wandered from the group and couldn’t be found for a short period of time. After seeing her parents worry and experiencing the panic himself, Harris knew he had to find a solution.
“It came to a point where she could unlock doors and windows and get out before anyone knew she was gone,” Harris said. “At that point we knew we had to do something, and started looking for something we could attach to her so we would know where she was if she got out.”
