The design of the system around the use is excellent.  Having used a GPS alert system for quite a while now (2, now that eTrak left MedicAlert in a lurch) the features appeal to me.  We will likely pre-order to put the theory to test.

I'm willing to test this out as well, although I usually forget my phone more than my autoinjectors.  I hope they will create cases for Allerjects as well, as I carry those more often than EpiPens.

Pre-order is now available for interested parties.  Target release Fall 2015 in time for school start I would venture. https://www.aterica.com/product/veta-2/

I'm going to pre-order, AND try to write it off on my taxes as a medical expense.  You all will have to let me know what type of feedback or testing you'd like.  I'm not a YouTuber or blogger so it will have to be limited to what can be posted.

I have pre-ordered two as well. 

They answered my questions:
- You can turn off the system to check the EpiPen, replace it, etc. without setting off the alarm
- The case is clear enough to look at the colour of the fluid to check for discolouration
- Pending success of the EpiPen model, one for Allerject/Auvi-Q is also in the plans

While I'm still interested in the product and intend to order as soon as product is available Aterica must stop pushing responsibility of self-management at an earlier age as one of the main benefits of its product.  That's between parents, doctor and patient as an individual development. Stick to product features, avoid giving medical advice for pediatric use.

Looks like I may be a beta tester for them!

I like the idea.  I don't like that the video kept saying 'must carry an epi pen' rather than epi pens and that it showed people carrying only one epi pen over and over.  They should fix that to reflect current recommendations.

Their recent Facebook post was a reminder to always carry two.   I will definitely mention it.  If you have some links to specifics, pm them to me so I can forward them.  Testing has started with a small group.  I will be in the next group but have already been in touch with them directly.
