As smartphones, tablets, and personal computers become more ingrained in our daily activities, it’s no surprise that users of all ages never leave home without staying connected. The networks we depend on to keep in touch with our peers, friends, and family have fostered an environment of safety and peace of mind within communities across the globe. This sense of security is quickly becoming the standard not only in our homes, but in our workplaces, schools, and even inshared public spaces. Having confidence in knowing that anything or anyone you need is within reach reinforces the idea of connectivity as a commodity, an dencourages us to share it with everyone, as we know Personal safety devices are key to helping alleviate these “what if’s”.
Personal safety devices have become sort of a trend lately. There are many factors that contribute to these phenomena. Firstly, wearablebeacons have become much cheaper to purchase and maintain as opposed to 5-10years ago. Secondly, anyone with the needed amount of money can buy them; youdo not need any special permission. Back in the day, only certain people couldmake this purchase. These include law enforcement personnel, lawyers, judges,journalists, diplomats, and detectives. Today anyone can get a personal safetydevice if want to and most do, like realtors, construction workers, motorcycleriders, teachers and those who live alone.
Other companies have started to enter this IOT field. A few competitors like Revolar and R.O.A.R. only offer a texting ability, completely avoiding all questions onwhy their product does not simply call 911. In fact if you look at their FAQ sheets on their websites they even claim it’s a burden to call 911. Huh?This doesn’t make much sense to those of us who do wish to reach out in a more robust fashion than just a random text. This does not identify the situation, what help is needed or if it waseven just a false alarm.
