I created goLock VENTURE so everyone can enjoy his or her adventures with confidence. Security plus deterrence plus notification equals more fun outdoors.

goLock™ Technology launched their Kickstarter campaign today with the goal of mass-producing a patent-pending electronic cable lock that alarms at the lock site and immediately alerts the owner of possible theft should gear be compromised. If tampered with, goLock VENTURE™ will emit a 90-decibel tone immediately. At the same time, the owner receives messages via their smartphone that their equipment or gear is potentially being stolen.

The lock will communicate with smartphones within a 300-yard radius via Bluetooth, but more importantly it will also work via cell signal so the owner can be a distance away and still be in contact with their gear. With the goLock app (free from Android or iOS) users can arm or disarm the lock and share access with friends. The app will also show battery life and signal strength.

Founder and creator, Steve Jones, believes the lock can solve a number of problems. “Unlike most locks, goLock Venture has a built in alarm that sounds when the lock is tampered with. Combine this alarming feature with the goLock app that notifies you via your smartphone the instant your gear is compromised, and you have one solid security system. I’m an outdoor enthusiast and like to protect things I’ve worked hard for like my kayak and bike. I created goLock VENTURE so everyone can enjoy his or her adventures with confidence. Security plus deterrence plus notification equals more fun outdoors.”

Jones enlisted Frank Murtland and Evolved Solutions™ to develop and manufacture the case for the VENTURE. With their expansive abilities in mechanical engineering, Evolved Solutions helps entrepreneurs turn their innovative ideas into a finished product.

The goLock VENTURE, with its proprietary Alarmed Guard™ smartphone-enabled technology, will be available on Kickstarter in a variety of cable lengths and thicknesses. The lock will come with a standard micro USB charger, a tie-down strap and a carrying case. The battery will last three to four days with normal use. The goLock VENTURE retail price after Kickstarter will be $199. Wireless monitoring service will be free the first 90 days, and then a nominal monthly fee thereafter.
