invisaWear is a line of smart jewelry and accessories that redefines personal protection. A small device is hidden behind everyday items like necklaces, bracelets, and keychains, and allows users to discreetly contact friends, family, and police in case of an emergency.
The concept for the system came from invisaWear’s CEO, Rajia Abdelaziz. A college engineering student at the time, Rajia noticed a steep drop in attendance to evening events by her female colleagues. Citing safety as their primary concern, Rajia set to work to develop a system that would ensure an individual’s safety while remaining discreet, while keeping an attractive and stylish form factor. She knew she would need both custom tailored hardware and software solutions to make her concept a reality.
Reaching out to Zco, Rajia and her associates presented the concept to our project managers, who charted a development roadmap for the project to follow.
Location & GPS
A key component of invisaWear is its direct link between a Bluetooth-enabled piece of jewelry and the user’s smart device. The secure connection between the two ensures that users will always be only a press away from emergency services and safety when in danger, while maintaining their privacy.
Zco’s engineers developed software that would sync effortlessly across a wide array of devices. The app also needed to provide a constant and reliable connection between the jewelry and mobile devices. Through a series of iterative development cycles and quality assurance passes, the software was honed and refined to achieve the objectives of invisaWear’s initial concept.
The app was developed for the iOS platform and utilizes the swift programming language in order to connect via Bluetooth to the accompanying jewelry. This native technology was chosen as connectivity to Bluetooth through native development ensures for a more precise, reliable, and consistent experience.
Zco helped us create an app that integrates directly with our proprietary hardware. Through every phase of the project, their team worked with us to create a product that will help protect people.

After the end of active development and quality assurance phases, invisaWear successfully launched for both iOS and Android devices. In its completed form, invisaWear offers rapid response from emergency services and contact notification abilities, all without any direct input to their mobile device. The app also supports emergency services from over 250 countries.
The hardware itself offers a year of battery life, and works within 30 feet of the user’s phone. invisaWear empowers individuals to take control of their personal security. Zco is proud to have collaborated with an organization that helps promote personal safety and improves its clients’ lives.
