The ZOMM Has Arrived!

Just under one year ago, we, the ZOMM team,  sat around the my dining room table mapping out the plan for the ZOMM. Now, less than a year later, the inaugural shipment of the world’s first wireless leash for mobile phones has arrived at our ZOMM headquarters in Tulsa, Oklahoma!

Henry & Laurie Penix ZOMM arrival

We all gathered anxiously around the truck as the first boxes came off. Being the “ZOMM Mom,” I choked back tears as I witnessed the culmination of the entire ZOMM team’s last year of hard work in bringing my dream to life.

My ZOMM is now a reality!

Not only is there now a product that will keep people from misplacing, leaving behind or losing their cell phones, but thanks to innovative Bluetooth technology, mobile phone users will also now have the ability to be notified and take calls directly from their ZOMM device, WHICH, by the way, also acts as a panic alarm in emergency situations. That’s right—ZOMM is a 3-in-1 device!

Once the entire team celebrated this unforgettable moment of ZOMM’s arrival , we got right back to work as we prepped retailers, sales reps and our Public Relations team for the official ZOMM release is around the corner.

If you pre-ordered a ZOMM on our Website, your device has been shipped!  If you haven’t had a chance to place an order just yet, get over to the ZOMM store and buy it now!

With ZOMM, you will never lose or forget your phone again. Because it’s not just smart…it’s Alarmingly SMART.

  • ZOMM Loves Female Innovators

    As many know, ZOMM was invented by Laurie Penix, the mom of the Penix family. Laurie recalls being on the treadmill, watching Oprah, when a phone call from a girlfriend inspired her to look further into the idea of a wireless leash.
