You’ve seen the commercials with the “I’ve fallen and can’t get up” message.  What you don’t see is the hefty monthly bill that comes with the service.  Great to have, but costly to maintain.

Now, V.Alrt has come up with a similar solution…without the monthly fees.

V.Alrt button

The V.Alrt is a small round button, about 1-1/4” in diameter and 3/8” thick.  It can be worn in a wristwatch style band or can be hung around the neck as a pendant. Accessories are available (not included) so you can also wear it as a tie clip, money clip or pocket clip.

V.Alrt band

It uses a standard CR2032 battery so it doesn’t need to be recharged like most USB devices.

It works on Bluetooth technology, so it must be paired with a compatible phone.  Apps are available for iOS and Android.  Location services must be turned on your device for the location portion to be sent. V.ALRT works on iPhone®4s/IOS 7 or newer and any smartphone using Android 4.3 or newer with Bluetooth® 4.0.

v.alrt messages

When activated by either a push of the button or by a fall, it can SMS message up to three contacts, send the GPS location and call three people with an emergency message.

Ideal for the elderly, it can also be useful for children, active sports enthusiasts, bikers, or anyone traveling away from home.
