Zore has developed Zore X a patented cartridge that connects owners to their firearms and is the fastest way to go from a locked firearm to disengaging and chambering a round and firing it. Zore X also notifies owners if their gun has been tampered with.

The company has also developed the Zore Watchdog alert system which lets owners keep tabs on their guns even when they are not near it. The minute that someone touches a gun, the owner gets an immediate notification sent to their smartphone.

The company has raised $94,000 out of $100,000 on Indiegogo. For $125 investors can receive the smart gun lock by February 2017.
