There are millions of old, unused mobile phones that are simply sitting around collecting dust around the world, so the globio '#Jacky' security system looks to make them functional once again. Connecting to an old device, the device is a door contact that will alert you if someone tries to enter your home or gain entry to something that you keep private. This allows the price point to be extremely low, while also making use of old technology that might otherwise go to waste.

The globio '#Jacky' security device acknowledges the need for more streamlined methods of maintaining a secure environment, while also turning old technology into a functional component that will keep you and your home safer.
