Party Squasher’s mission is to provide real-time information to homeowners (hosts), in order to help prevent party disasters. We give hosts access, via our mobile app (iOS or Android), to an intelligent estimate of the number of mobile device-carrying people in the home.
We believe this solution is ideal for hosts who want to keep their home safe without the use of cameras or other surveillance/recording equipment that would violate a guest’s privacy.
This real-time counting technology is patented and also referred to as Wi-Fi sensing. It is privacy-friendly because it does NOT identify a specific user in a home, it’s just a de-identified count of simultaneous unique phones within the sensor’s range.
A guest’s phone does not need to be paired to the home’s Wi-Fi network to be recognized by the ‘sensor’. Depending on the version of the smartphone, their Wi-Fi network also doesn't need to be enabled to be detected.
