ElectroniXiQ has developed The Stinger, a device that brings keyless entry and security to everything from ATVs and construction vehicles to golf carts.
The existing core market issue is security. Golf/utility carts and most non-automotive motorized vehicles use the same key. Theft is clearly a problem, an estimated $8-10 million per year problem.
Our keyless security and engagement system is the solution.
XiQ's "Stinger" began as a result of an “aha!” moment experienced by Co-Founder/CTO, Florian Meier. While living in a large golf cart community, Florian recognized an inherent security risk faced by many cart owners… All golf carts use the same ignition key!
This insight led Florian to build an initial prototype, which he immediately began to sell with a local golf cart dealer. Co-Founder / CEO Karlos Walkes began to investigate other dealers’ potential interest in what soon became known as the “Stinger.”
Karlos recognized a clear market need and opportunity, after conducting dealer trials and customer discovery. Through vigorous R&D, the “Stinger” has quickly evolved into a product offering significant value and growth for the golf, construction, utility, and recreational vehicle market.
The “Stinger” is more than just a digital “key”, it’s a patented system that provides new levels of security, mobile engagement, and big data (SaaS) and IoT opportunities.
Our execution is all about evolution. The motivation behind every conceptualization, upgrade, and redesign is constant and consistent product improvement. This applies to vehicle enhancement, product performance and user experience.
Of the many things we do, we’re thinking one thing: Be better.
