DOTS911 Mobile Phone Signal Suite Surpasses Indiegogo Funding Goal

San Jose, CA, March 24, 2014 - DOTS911 surpassed its initial funding targets in its Indiegogo campaign this week. The $5000 minimum sales goal was reached in the first third of the funding period, with totals now above $6200 and rising. Each project backer purchased at least one DOTS911 Signal Enhancer and mobile signal finder app.

DOTS911 has demonstrated use of its Signal Enhancer to increase mobile phone signal strength by up to 15 dB, making it possible to place phone calls in areas that normally show no useable signal. This Signal Enhancing hardware requires no power source, has no wires, and functions with every commercially available mobile phone and every currently active mobile service provider. The same signal strength improvement has also been found to dramatically increase mobile phone data transfer rates. In home use, DOTS911 Signal Enhancers have enabled 40x increases in data transfer rates and have been demonstrated improving call clarity in areas with marginal signal, a problem faced by many homeowners with stucco walls or signal occlusion by nearby geographical features or buildings.


The DOTS911 mobile signal finder app leads users from an area with no mobile service to the nearest location where they can make a phone call. The company's marketing material primarily positions this feature for emergency use. John Wilbur, founder and CEO of DOTS911 stated, "The inspiration behind our suite of mobile signal locator and Signal Enhancer products was the story of James Kim, a cnet reporter who died in Oregon after getting stranded in the snow." Kim, whose family survived the ordeal, was unable to call for help with his mobile phone because he was unable to find a working signal. Mr. Wilbur continued, "When we investigated the site of the Kim tragedy, we found that the family's car was stuck only a quarter mile from a working mobile phone signal. The problem for James, and for thousands of others who die in the same situation each year, was that there's nothing on the market that will tell you where to go to find a signal when you start in a dead zone." The DOTS911 signal finder app was designed to address this need, pointing lost or trapped hikers, drivers, and drivers to the nearest working phone service in an emergency.
