How a Personal Safety Device Can Prevent Parenting Paranoia

Silent Beacon Jul 30, 2019
If you’re a parent, then you know what it means to worry about your kids’ safety and security. From medical maladies to accidents and crime, there are countless dangers that can cause worry, keeping you awake at night.

The Worries Continue

For example, when my son was born, he suffered from various medical issues. We spent the first few weeks of his life in the hospital with him. During that time, we also spent countless hours worrying about what his life would look like as he grew up. Fortunately, some of those medical issues were resolved within a few weeks.
As he got older, my husband and I continued to worry: would he walk off with a stranger? Breakthrough the baby-proofed cabinets and taste test the cleaning products? Get into an accident on his bike that first time he rides around the block “all-by myself”?
Yes, the chances of any of those terrible things happening are extremely slim, yet ... 
  • Accidents do happen
  • Crime happens
  • Emergencies arise
As a concerned parent, in the event of an emergency, I want to have some peace of mind that my child can get help whenever he needs it. Fortunately, there is a technology that gives parents like me a sense of security.

Silent Beacon: The Perfect Personal Safety Device

Silent Beacon was founded after its president, Kenneth Kelley, found himself in his own emergency situation. After being involved in a car accident, his cell phone was out of reach at the time - preventing him from calling his family to let them know that he was hurt, but alive.
From that day on, Kelley vowed that no one would ever need to go through an emergency situation alone.

That was the day that Silent Beacon was born.

How It Works?

The Silent Beacon is a lightweight, wearable personal safety device with an emergency alert button that pairs with your Smartphone. As for the device itself, you can clip it onto a keychain, backpack, or purse. Or you can just drop the Beacon into your pocket or wallet.
To set up the Beacon, pair the device with the free Silent Beacon app. Next, input up to seven contacts, including friends, family, 911, and other emergency numbers. There are also customizable features that you can enable, such as two-way voice communication and custom alert options.

Why Silent Beacon is Great for the Kids?

With its an easy-to-press button, there are no complicated logins. Your child simply depresses the button on the device, and everyone on his or her contact list will receive the alert. Those alerts can be sent via text, phone call, and email. Your child never needs to pick up his or her phone, since the Bluetooth-enabled device pushes out the alert itself.
As a parent, I can download the free Silent Beacon app. This gives me the ability to pinpoint my child’s location in real-time, thanks to GPS technology. And with the free app, I can toggle between map and satellite views.

In the event of an emergency, my son can enable the two-way communication feature, and he and I can talk as he waits for help to arrive.

How the Silent Beacon Compares to Its Competitors

While there are other personal safety devices on the market, Silent Beacon stands out for several reasons. First, it is affordably priced at $99.99. There are no additional fees or charges, unlike other companies.

Some personal safety device companies charge you installation and cancellation fees - and they also have recurring monthly charges.
These third-party charges provide call center access, because instead of directly contacting emergency personnel yourself, these companies will connect you with an operator. The operator will then assess your situation and contact the ambulance, police, fire company, etc.
Unfortunately, in a true emergency situation, every second count. Instead of wasting precious time talking to a call center, I want to get in touch immediately with emergency responders. Silent Beacon allows me to do just that.
