The first "always on", kid safe protection for electrical outlets

Our kids are precious

We want the best for our kids...but we are often protecting them with solutions that were developed decades ago, don't always work, are easily circumvented, difficult to use and that keep stress and danger levels high. 

Protecting them from danger

As parents, we want both safety and usability ... a combination currently unavailable in outlet protection. We want and need safer and easier alternatives to use throughout our homes.

Electrical shock symptoms can vary from small burns to full cardio events. Every year, thousands of kids visit the emergency room due to electrical shock...many of which never recover. 

These "accidents" happen regularly - despite widespread use of plastic inserts and other outlet protection.  All of these accidents can be avoided.

Guarding against distraction 

The Guardian Angel Outlet is an electric outlet that provides BOTH the absolute safety AND the convenience parents desire. After 5 years invested in research, engineering, patents, trademarks and design, the Guardian Angel Outlet is nearly ready for distribution.

We’re putting intelligence in child safety 

The Guardian Angel technology is always on – using capacitive sensing to continuously monitor the electrical receptacle’s immediate surroundings for dangerous actions or situations – ensuring a child is always safe.

Electrodes in the housing allow the circuit to see beyond its plastic walls and distinguish a dangerous object from an acceptable plug.

We Need You!

Our innovation won 1st place at the MIT Whiteboard Challenge and has been featured in multiple news outlets and blogs. Support us on Indiegogo and help us get the Guardian Angel Outlet in the hands of parents and protect children from the dangers of electricity.

Outlet Specs: 

• 100% shock proof protection 

• Peace of mind 

• Ease of use 

• Cannot be circumvented by childhood curiosity 

• Installs easily (professional installation not required) 

• Uses a sensor technology that is always vigilant 

• Outlet is protected and power is available for use 

• One full piece for installation (No small pieces 
that create choking hazards)
