Eric Tam, one of the founders of CloudHawk USA, said of the development of this project, “In 2013, Oscar was diagnosed with autism, and is unable to speak while tending to run off by himself. Our family, with three generations in the electronics field, started searching for a tracker for his safety and our peace of mind. We bought dozens of GPS trackers, watches, and Bluetooth stickers, tiles, and buttons; and finally found the CloudHawk designed by DB Jay Ltd. in Canada in use overseas. They customized the USA version with the exclusive temperature monitor and user-friendly apps. We liked it so much that we became the USA distributor for it and wanted to make it affordable for other families that definitely can benefit from it too. We figured out that we can sell it at our cost to consumers while the profits from the sale to businesses will help keep us going.”
