Time is on your side

Smart products become more efficient (and fun!) when connected wirelessly to your mobile device. They free up time to focus on what you want to, not what you have to.

Invented By



Like all Quirky products, Spotter was invented and influenced by real people like you. When new dad Denny Fong’s wife went back to work after maternity leave, he found himself overwhelmed by household chores. He came up with the idea for Spotter to keep himself connected to and in control of his daily chores while he focused on his 6-month-old son. Since submitting this invention to Quirky, he’s found endless possibilities for this new low-maintenance watchdog.

2284 influencers helped bring Spotter to life.
