Meet the world’s first and best smart umbrella. It’s the Davek Alert and it’s not only the world’s first smart umbrella, it’s a quality umbrella that will pay dividends this spring and summer as there is nothing more surprising than that “pop up” afternoon storm that sends folks running for cover.
The Davek Alert and it’s sister, the Davek Alert Mini are well made umbrellas that sync to your smartphone and will never be lost or misplaced. Once your umbrella is connected to your phone, it can send an alert when you leave it behind. Based in New York City, Davek makes products that last. They have been making quality umbrellas for over a decade that have been getting rave reviews from not only patrons and engineers, but also fashion designers. Davek has used crowdfunding campaigns for its products in the past, but now you can order direct.
The secret here is that tucked away in the handle of the umbrella is a tiny Bluetooth chip that continuously broadcasts a silent “proximity” signal to the smartphone set up with the app and paired to the umbrella. If you are among the frustrated millions that have lost or have misplaced your umbrella, the Davek Alert is “problem solved.” Think of this the “worry-free” umbrella as the signal activates as you pick up your umbrella. If they distance between your smartphone and umbrella exceeds about about 30 feet, you will get an alert on your phone.
The Alert umbrellas use high tech Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology to make it all work. Very little power is used in the process and a single batter will last anywhere from one to three years. The radio distance isn’t perfect as it varies a bit depending on nearby materials and interference. In testing, a user was getting up to 40 feet in range while in an open area. The Davek module is in line with all FCC, IC and CE certification requirements. The battery in an easily replaceable CR2032 coin battery.
Best of all, the Davek Alert just works and fits just about anywhere. A purse, a backpack or even a night bag. Athletes will want to have one in their golf or tennis bag. Right now the Davek Alert comes in two attractive colors, that being a choice of black or blue. The coverage diameter measures 43 inches and the length when closed in 11.75 inches long. It weighs a paltry 1 lb and 2 ounces. The Davek Alert makes that perfect gift for the person that may have every possible accessory or the absent-minded friend that tends to lose everything.
