Turns any phone into an effective emergency alert system

[Category : - HEALTH- Telecommunications- Security and alarms]
[Viewed 2126 times]

Red Button turns any phone into an effective emergency alert system. No need for an extra device.

Developed as a cloud system it recognises a telephone number from a calling device (any type of phone) and rapidly connects a user to their first available friend or relative.
If required, emergency services can be quickly brought into the conversation to create a conference call allowing the friend or relative to coordinate a response.
(This is not a personal safety device; it’s a service).


The patents and the entire business including application are available for purchase.

Key points of difference…

*** Take action earlier in an emergency *** - Red Button is a soft option for “grey area” emergencies (e.g. “Am I having an attack or not?”) and people tend to call a friend or relative first in an emergency. Some people have good reason not to call 911 – particularly in rural locations (they will be dead before help arrives) or minority groups. For people worried about the cost of an ambulance or hospital visit – they can seek counsel first from a trusted contact.

*** Make emergency response more effective *** - Instant conference call with 911 (Emergency Services) – the friend or relative can coordinate with emergency services to assist in guiding them to the person, act as interpreter (for non-English speaking people), provide medical information and how to locate or access their property. Some people don’t need emergency services – but still need assistance. Red Button facilitates assistance from a trusted group.

*** Low cost *** this is a family/friends monitored service; but still highly effective.

*** True simultaneous calling *** other emergency devices claim simultaneous calling but only through the use of a communications server can this be achieved (otherwise its sequential dialing).

*** The ideal target market is ***
Ageing “baby boomer” population bubble moving into episodic illness territory – still mobile but fearful of having an attack. A rapidly growing demographic.
This is NOT a product for the frail aged (a considerably smaller market).

*** The ideal path to market is ***
A large Telco looking for a low-cost-to-implement ‘added value service’ to reduce churn without the need to provide another device (it works on existing mobiles and/or landline services).
Verizon comes to mind.

The patent will provide a barrier for competitors attempting to imitate the service.
For a Telco, even a small 1% reduction in churn returns millions.
