We are dedicated to the prevention of child hot-car deaths.

On average, 38 children die every year from heat-related deaths after being trapped inside vehicles. Even the best of parents or caregivers can unknowingly leave a sleeping baby in a car; and the end result can be injury or even death. What’s even more alarming is these tragedies are on the rise. In 2018, there were 52 child hot-car fatalities – that’s one every 7 days.

You need to know right away if your child has not been dropped off.

DropPop is a smartphone app capable of alerting parents and loved-ones when their child has not been dropped off when or where expected.

“SET AND FORGET” UTILITY

Unlike other apps, you don’t have to start DropPop™ or remind it to remind you. DropPop™ runs in the background monitoring all your kids’ schedules.

OPTIMIZED FOR BATTERY LIFE

A device without power is worthless. We took every step to optimize and reduce operations in order to be as respectful of battery life as possible.

PRIVATE

DropPop™ is about safety, not marketing. We store only the info necessary for the app to function and nothing more. This is not a data-mining operation.

NOT JUST AN ALARM SYSTEM

DropPop™ doesn’t just rally the troops if a child is off-schedule, it also sends friendly notifications when kids arrive on time. It’s reassuring to know your child is dropped off! Peace of mind is great to have.

Why did we build this?

On average, 38 children die from heat-related deaths after being trapped inside vehicles. Even the best of parents or caregivers can unknowingly leave a sleeping baby in a car; and the end result can be injury or even death. What’s even more alarming is these tragedies are on the rise. In 2018, there were 52 child hot-car fatalities – that’s one every 7 days.

Here at DropPop™, we seek to prevent this type of tragedy. DropPop™ alerts parents and loved-ones that their child was not dropped off when and where planned—that the child is off-schedule. “Schedules” are the key to how DropPop™ works as an early-warning system.  In the majority of these cases, the child had a scheduled place to be–usually school or daycare. DropPop™ monitors when and where your children are expected to be and if they are off-schedule, the app alerts you and every loved-one in your circle that the drop-off has not occurred. In this way, we can minimize the amount of time a child could spend in a locked car.

With DropPop™, we believe we can save lives and raise awareness that unknowingly leaving a child in a car can happen to anyone.
