We had the opportunity to facilitate a review for V.ALRT-Personal Emergency Alert Device by VSN Mobile . We were given a sample, although, our opinions are honestly our own.
I am an over protective mother, with children who
often tease me about being "too paranoid" with a roll
of their eyes. How in this day and age can you
NOT worry about your child out there exploring the
world, especially if you can't always be near.
This is the first year my youngest child has had to attend
school without his big brothers, who have moved onto
the high school. I dreaded this year for a long time.
I did everything I could to try and prepare him. We
talked about crossing at the lights, taking only one route
to and from school, and stranger dangers. No matter
how often I lecture or we talk about this I am still
nervous, there are still "what if's.."
Recently we received the V.ALRT, a Personal Emergency
Alert Device. As I learned about the device I thought it
couldn't of came at a better time. This could give me some
kind of peace of mind, knowing my son could alert me
if he had any kind of emergency.
The V.ALRT is actually a pretty simple device. You need
to own a Smartphone which uses Google Play or App Store.
You will have to download V.ALRT app. When setting up
the app you will be asked questions about who to call
during an emergency, as well as who to text. When you hit
the button these people will be the ones alerted to your emergency.
You now have personal protection wherever you go.
You can wear the V.ALRT however you please. It can be a necklace,
or on a key chain. You can wear it as watch, a band is provided
for just that. The watchband is a soft black silicone, made for comfort.
You can stick it on your kids bikes if you choose or their helmets,
they easily stick to objects.
When you are having an emergency the V.ALRT will take action
with a simple press of a button. When the button is pressed it will send
text messages, call your contacts, and send an approximate
location of your whereabouts. With certain limitations it can also
detect if you have fallen. The V.ALRT can also be a sound
and visual alarm in case your not able to yell for help you can
still be heard.
The V.ALRT can range up to 75' indoors and 300' outdoors.
It uses one battery that comes with it at the time of purchase.
Depending on usage this battery could last up to a year. The
devise is waterproof.
I absolutely love when technology advances to help keep
people safer. I like that I can be rest assured if my son
needs me he is going to press that button. Having that
little sense of peace concerning my child is priceless.
