GunBoxLive™ Saves Lives

GunBoxLive™ is a wireless, energy efficient portable personal security device that alerts you if a case is tampered with, opened, or stolen. Alerts are delivered to your computer, tablet, cell phone or iPhone/Android smartphone through simple, user-friendly apps. GunBoxLive™ is easy to set up, gives you unprecedented awareness of status of your case and the valuables in it. GunBoxLive™ reduces the risk of unauthorized access or theft.

We envisioned GunBoxLive™ with the secure storage of firearms in mind. We provide locking cases without the worry of lockout due to technical failure. You can also install the GunBoxLive™ device into most existing gun cases! 

The bottom line, we help you “Protect the Ones You Love” and “Protect the Things You Love” and provide peace of mind at home or on the go. We believe that the GunBoxLive™ Smart Case will improve security and save lives.


GunBoxLive™ will save lives by preventing or interrupting actions that lead to tragic consequences. GunBoxLive™ alert notifications transmit critical information to gun owners whenever someone gains access to their firearm. In addition, the information provided by GunBoxLive™ apps can be used to increase public awareness and initiate lockdowns in specific areas or neighborhoods where stolen weapons are reported. 

Firearm prevalence, inadequate and unsafe storage are factors associated with the high rates of unintentional firearm deaths and thefts. There are over 60 million firearms privately owned in the US. Only a tiny fraction of those are stored in a way that provides their owners with the security of knowing the instant their firearm has been tampered with or stolen.

•Every 25 minutes someone is unintentionally shot

•$375,000,000 worth of firearms are stolen a year

•More than 1,000,000 car break-ins per year

•80% of stolen firearms are stolen away from home

•50% of youth suicides are committed with guns

•Children and teens steal relatives' cars to joy ride everyday

•Millions of dollars in valuables are stolen every day

  • Of youths who have committed suicide with firearms, 82% obtained the firearm from their home, usually a parent’s firearm (The National Violent Injury Statistics System, p. 2).
  • When storage status was noted, about two-thirds of the firearms had been stored unlocked (The National Violent Injury Statistics System, p. 2).
  • Among the remaining cases in which the firearms had been locked, the youth knew the combination or where the key was kept or broke into the cabinet (The National Violent Injury Statistics System, p. 2).

GunBoxLive™ is an evolution in security that all responsible firearm owners should have. GunBoxLive™ gives you the peace of mind that your firearms are secure and accounted for every second of every day! With 20,000 unintentional shootings and 500,000 firearm thefts a year in America, it makes sense to upgrade to GunBoxLive™. However, this is just part of the story; GunBoxLive™ is about responsibility!

Instant alerts provide a deterrent and intervention for children and teens who know their parents are notified immediately if they even move the case. These cases can also be used for other sensitive items requiring security such as prescription medications, bicycles, boats, jewelry, spare keys, and other valuables.

We decided to use cell transmission technology for a number of reasons, but the main reason is that we feel this is the best way to stay connected with your cases. Cell technology is somewhat more expensive than other radio transmitters; however, it is very reliable and convenient.
We realize that people are very mobile and so are their valuables. We want to offer our customers the best possible coverage that will cater to almost any scenario.

"GunBoxLive gives you peace of mind and is a great product! I have seen the demo work and it is incredible how easy it is to set up. I am a firearms owner and feel that all responsible firearms owners should have GunBoxLive!"

 -Dan Ramirez, Military Veteran, Business Owner

"For me GunBoxLive is the ideal solution to the problem of gun theft and safely securing firearms properly from unintended use of children. If I would of had GunBoxLive 5 years ago I would of avoided the loss of 2 very expensive hand guns." 

-Stuart Williams, Hunter, Columnist

"Being a staunch supporter of the 2nd Amendment, GunBoxLive is the best way to protect my rights, my family and unintended misuse of a firearm. We do have the right to bear arms, but we also have an equal if not greater responsibility to protect that right and those around us." 

-Fred Thornes, Active Outdoorsman, Entrepreneur

We do not need the serial number of your firearm or item you are securing in GunBoxLive™ to activate your service.


We have spent months testing, more importantly, using prototypes and refining and acquiring information from firearms owners, child access prevention networks, top mobile design engineers and software developers to make the user experience simple and reliable.

GunBoxLive™ has been designed and prototyped in Seattle, WA and we plan to manufacture via a trusted partner with operations based in Seattle and Shenzhen. We realize that whilst we're reinventing the gun case this doesn't mean we have to
reinvent the manufacturing process.

We are using as many standard gun cases and wireless transmittal components as possible. These components have undergone rigorous testing and stood the test of time. We are also very excited to create our own GunBoxLive™ customized computer board as "the brains" of this project. Also, fully featured apps will be available on the App Store® and Android.

We have designed, redesigned and reimagined GunBoxLive™ numerous times during the past 15 months—pouring countless hours into understanding and improving the user experience, and incorporating feedback from gun owners, moms and dads, retailers, doctors, students, hunters, truckers, and techies. We are in our final, urgent push to bring GunBoxLive™ to the world.

This campaign is seeking $100,000—crucial funding that will allow us to:

  • Complete regulatory certifications
  • Finalize product design
  • Gain critical momentum that will allow us to deliver GunBoxLive™ at a reasonable price.
  • Begin production—GunBoxLive™ cases for guns and SecureBoxLive™ for jewelry, tablets, cameras, wine, and watches – anything that fits!

What will happen when GunBoxLive is accessed?
GunBoxLive will alert you or the person you have included in alert instructions that the firearm was accessed.

What happens when the firearm is put back into GunBoxLive?
GunBoxLive will send an alert that the firearm was replaced.

What happens if there is no activity for a long period of time, will the box communicate with me?
Yes, GunBoxLive will periodically send you “I am still alive” and you can review functional reports online for your peace of mind that your firearm is secure.

How long will the battery last?
Expected battery life is about 1 year depending on use. The MD3G device will let you know when it needs to be recharged. Charging is simple through the GunBoxLive™ USB interface.

What if my firearm is stolen?
If your firearm is stolen go to www.gunboxlive.com or access your app on your smartphone to log in and click on the stolen gun tab. Input stolen gun serial number and click send. Your stolen firearm will instantly upload on the stolen weapon registry database.

Are there monthly charges for GunBoxLive™ ?
Your first year subscription is included in the purchase price. You will be able to renew your subscription for 1 year at $60, 2 years at $50/yr or 3 years at $40/yr.

Why is GunBoxLive™ Cellular based?
We've been told by firearms owners 1) they need the mobile security and 2) that when the Wi-Fi is down, that is when you need security and information the most. We believe cellular is the most reliable way to give consistent service where it is needed most.

Do I have to provide my gun's serial number?
No, the information you give us is up to you and under your control. Providing the serial number does give you an easy method to add your gun to the stolen gun database if it is stolen, but it is not required.

How do I receive notifications and alerts?
You will receive alerts to the smart phone, computer, or email of your choice. With GunBoxLive™ you can also add additional people to your list to receive notifications.

If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.
