What makes B’zT® apparel different from other clothing?

B’zT® is dedicated to safety. Our clothing looks like regular cotton t-shirts, however, they are embedded with our patented tracking technology which are concealed as patches, shirt pockets or fabric layers. Our tiny Bluetooth chipsets are machine-washable and works in conjunction with our free B’zT® App which is available on iPhone & Android devices. We also sell embedded patches separately which can be sewn or pinned onto coats, jackets, sweatshirts, pants, and backpacks.

We can also create customized t-shirts for schools or day camps and customized patches with a school’s logo for private and specialized schools. For adult and young adult care recipients, we can create customized shirts or gowns that are embedded with our chipsets. Lastly, caregivers can purchase our unique scarf wraps that is part of our B’zT® Hug line.

Can my child go through TSA security with a B’zT® t-shirt or patch?

We encourage all of our customers to dress their children in B’zT® shirts and patches wherever and whenever they like, especially in crowded places like airports. As our B’zT® apparel is considered an “electronic device”, TSA personnel will request that the child take off the B’zT® t-shirt or patch-affixed clothing and place it in the bin for X-ray screening. We recommend that children have an undershirt or tank top while they go through TSA security. Once they have cleared security, they can put back on their B’zT® apparel and continue on with their journey!

What does B’zT® mean?

B’zT®’s acronym is Beacon and Technology. In a humorous way, ”B” refers to ‘Bee’ and ”T” means ‘T-shirt’. Bees are excellent at locating the most abundant source of nectar near their colony and finding the best shortcut to come back home. Our ultimate goal at B’zT® is to help you find the best shortcut to your child, student or care recipient.
