Why you need to fund the silent beacon campaign today…

silentlogoWhat is the Silent Beacon? It is a waterproof, wearable, wireless bluetooth device that can alert loved ons in an emergency situation, unitizing the technology of your smartphone. It is able to track the user in real time when activated so that authorities and loved ones can find you instantly.

The word beacon is defined by the Merriam-Webster dictionary as “a strong light that can be seen from far away and that is used to help guide ships, airplanes, etc.” Another definition is, “someone or something that guides or gives hope to others.” In other words, a way to find your way home and that is the principle for which Silent Beacon is based on.

Almost everyone is familiar with the Life Alert commercials and their catchy slogan, “Help! I’ve fallen and I can’t get up!” but danger to senior citizens is a real concern, and one that Silent Beacon can help with. But it’s not just for the seniors of today – everyone can benefit from having a personal wearable safety device in their possession, because you never know when an emergency situation might crop up in your daily life and it’s important that we plan for every eventuality or at least help those who are in need of such devices in our circles of friends and familys.

According to statistics from the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI), someone in the U.S. become a victim of a violent crime every 26 seconds, and over 50% of these crimes happen within one mile of the victim’s house. Car crashes occur every 6 seconds, with fatalities from these crises being reported every 16 minutes. These are incredibly heartbreaking figures, but Silent Beacon can help alert emergency personnel and your loved ones within seconds of being activated. Kelley developed Silent Beacon after being involved in a car accident, which rendered his phone screen useless and made it impossible for him to contact family members. At that moment, he realized how desperately people needed a fast and more reliable method to get help in emergencies.

The Silent Beacon will be indispensable for people of all ages: victims of violent attacks, people with life-threatening medical conditions, and teens – who are more likely to be involved in fatal collisions than other age groups.

Here’s how:

Silent Beacon is waterproof, rechargeable and easily connects to an app on your smartphone or device.

It’s a personal wearable safety device that no one should leave home without, and is small enough to be concealed in just about every location.
