WHY ARE YOU COMPETING IN SASETANK?
We support SASEtank because the competition is dedicated to cultivating new entrepreneurial ideas. SASEtank has provided us with the resources to fine-tune our idea, draft a business plan, receive important feedback, and develop our entrepreneurial skills. Our SAYFT System is an idea that needs to be nourished in order to make an impact in the future. SASEtank provides the perfect environment for that growth.

TELL US ABOUT YOUR PROJECT.
The SAYFT (Security at Your Fingertips) System is a discreet metal detecting system. It is designed to provide security against gun violence without the apparent intrusiveness of standard metal detecting gates. 

The increasing number of mass shootings in both public and private places makes it clear that increased security is needed to protect the community. The SAYFT System serves as an additional layer of security in locations that may not have metal-detecting security at all.

The system comprises of a metal-detecting panel that can be hidden in different embodiments, such as a door or rug. Each embodiment wirelessly communicates with a smartphone application as well as various other technologies, including cameras, automatic door locks, and speakers. The SAYFT System seamlessly connects and warns users of potentially dangerous situations.
