About Us

Hello, I’m Adam, the solo founder and developer of CheckinBee. The idea for CheckinBee came about in early 2022 when I was looking for a solution for my own family. My father-in-law is a fiercely independent man who is very active, lives on his own, and travels often. Like many families, we started to worry about his safety as he got older, especially as he was alone a lot of the time. 

We searched online for a check-in type service so that we could be confident of his daily wellbeing, especially on the days that we had no contact with him. There were many different options for check-in services but there was one problem; my father-in-law did not want to be checked in on. He especially did not want to answer the phone each day and speak with someone. Unfortunately, all of the services we found required the recipient to answer a call at a specific time of day.

With my background in building web applications, I decided that I wanted to create a check-in service aimed specifically for my father-in-law. Although he is someone who is strongly against people checking in on him, he was much more onboard with a less intrusive method that would provide the same benefits. Instead of having to answer a phone call each day, he simply responds to a check-in text message. CheckinBee texts the recipient daily and then allows one hour for a response before alerting their ‘care circle.’ For our family, CheckinBee hasn’t replaced regular calls, but has simply supplemented the communication and care for my fiercely independent father-in-law.

After hearing about others who were in a very similar situation, I decided to launch CheckinBee to the world, and the rest, as they say, is history.
