It’s incredibly usable, and we made it for ordinary families and people. It’s all about peace of mind, communication made easier and keeping better track of anything and everything in your daily routine.

OCHO technology is a gateway for anyone burdened with the difficulties of keeping everyday tasks on time, in order, and adequately communicated. The company launched its first product, an NFC Smart Key Tray that makes leaving notes, setting reminders and receiving notifications more simple than it’s ever been. The OCHO Pad has two weeks left for backers to pre-order on Kickstarter and become a part of the first round of production OCHO, Inc. has ever ran.

“This technology is truly for the average person to make everyday life more simple,” said Anthony Garvan, the Lead Software Designer at OCHO. “It’s incredibly usable, and we made it for ordinary families and people. It’s all about peace of mind, communication made easier and keeping better track of anything and everything in your daily routine.”

American culture has created a lifestyle that gets busier and demands more everyday. Busy working parents have it especially tough. OCHO technology brings a new way for them to feel certain that things are being communicated between each other with minimal hassle.

Kids are forgetful. If a working mom constantly questions whether her children have made it home safely from school, practice or other extracurriculars safely, the OCHO Pad can help. Attach an OCHO Tag to a child’s key. The minute he returns home and sets his keys on the OCHO Pad, a notification can be pushed to his mother’s smartphone. “Matt just arrived at home.” When a mother has a busy afternoon schedule, she can also program the OCHO Pad to push a notification to her son or daughter’s phone as soon as he or she returns home. “Don’t forget to make sure the door is locked. Be sure to take the dog for a quick walk. Love, Mom.” All the guesswork of remembering to send a text message and wondering if your loved ones made it home is eliminated.

While many would not like to admit it, adults are often just as forgetful as children. The OCHO Pad can help with remembering the menial but always important tasks many people forget to complete. Sometimes it’s difficult to remember to place a phone on the charger before bed at night. OCHO Pad can be set to remind a user if his or her cell phone is not plugged in on the OCHO Pad by 11 p.m. It’s an easy way to eliminate the morning catastrophe of a dead phone. Even getting to work on time can be tough sometimes. Users can give OCHO Pad the command “If I haven't left home by 7:45am, sound my alarm on my phone, start flashing the lights, notify my significant other.”

The OCHO Pad has many more capabilities and allows users to create notifications around virtually any item through NFC or infrared technology. Ordinary items, such as wallets and keys, just need an OCHO Tag to work with the OCHO Pad. Visit the OCHO Kickstarter project page to back the campaign and be the first to pre-order OCHO Pad. Early bird pricing begins at $38 for the OCHO Mini and $68 for the OCHO Pad, and there are still several available. Once the early bird systems are all purchased, the Mini will cost $58 and the Pad will cost $88. Combinations and larger packages are also available.
