We are Moms, business women and best friends; turned entrepreneurs!
When one of our children, who was only 2 years old, got out of the house one night undetected, we were terrified. We couldn’t believe this had happened, and that we had not woken up. We went straight to the internet in search of a solution and came up empty handed. we were shocked to find that there was no solution on the market to monitor the movements of toddler aged children.
What we did find were baby monitors that are not well suited to children once they are out of their cribs, locks on the door didn’t feel quite safe, and security systems that were so expensive and couldn’t be used to when travelling with our families. When we talked to parents, we found that this was a problem for many, and our research found innumerable news stories of children wandering at night, some with tragic outcomes.
Over a couple glasses of wine the idea for a simple motion detector on a door to help monitor the movements of toddlers was born. And although we had never manufactured a product before, we both had enough business experience that we decided to make a go at bringing our idea to life. And so, fueled by some naivety, a lot of passion and even more wine, we launched on an adventure to build our product and our brand.
Decco the toddlermonitor™ has turned into a mission to help keep kids safe, and also a labour of love in honor of our original inspirations, our sons Declan and Cooper. Whether it’s transitioning your child to a “big kid bed”, traveling to a family member’s house or taking a trip to the cabin, we hope that Decco the toddlermonitor™ helps give you the peace of mind that comes with knowing that your child is safe, sound and were they are supposed to be, asleep in their bed.
