The SILENT BEACON is the only wearable device that can instantly notify all loved ones, emergency personnel and/or 911 of your emergency situation by sending alerts via text, email, push notification with your exact GPS location.  The person who hits the alert can also verbally communicate through the device itself.

MEET THE SILENT BEACON
The Silent Beacon is a wearable, waterproof, rechargeable, Bluetooth device that connects to Smartphones and allows for real-time GPS alerts that are delivered to loved ones and medical personnel in an emergency.  A lot of campaigns are for tracking objects that can be replaced, Silent Beacon helps you find things that are invaluable, like family, friends and pets.

FEATURES:

WHAT ARE WE RAISING FUNDS FOR?

As we point out in the video presentation, we are at the point where we need to money to have this mass produced.  Certifications, Tooling and the packaging is all part of this cost and it is needed so that we may manufacture Silent Beacon to the marketplace.

The size is small and sleek

WHAT DO WE COMPARE TO?
The Silent Beacon uses the most up-to-date technology, allowing users to integrate the device with their smartphones - eliminating the need for landlines. Best of all, we plan to deliver this product more affordably than the dinosaur styled 'alert' systems of the past, without the steep monthly fees, lengthy contracts, and expensive activation charges.
  

*We plan to offer a call center option that will be OPTIONAL. For those who will feel more secure with a call center handling your emergencies this is for you. All other features still work with this additional feature.


THE SILENT BEACON APP
With over a year of work and a team of over 20 people the Silent Beacon app has been fine tuned to assure your message is seamlessly delivered to its recipients. Our application allows users to see up to the second tracking of any of their loved ones who have pressed the button on the Silent Beacon. 

It is EASY as 1-2-3 to find loved ones who need your assistance with the Silent Beacon App!

SIZE OF THE SILENT BEACON?

Currently the Silent Beacon is 40mm x 8mm this will slightly change as we finalize the shell and components once the indiegogo campaign is completed.

WHY THE WORLD NEEDS THE SILENT BEACON.
The need for a device with Silent Beacon’s capability has never been greater, as the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s violent crime and accident statistics become more shocking every day. Consider these alarming facts:
  • Every 26 seconds, someone becomes the victim of a violent crime. These attacks range from forced rape to aggravated assault. A sexual assault occurs every 2 minutes. More than 50% of these assaults take place within a one-mile radius of the victim’s home – or at home. Even more disturbing is the fact that only 12% of these attacks ever lead to an arrest.
  • Every day, 2,300 people go missing, and this number includes abductions. Of those missing people, very few (if any) are found using their cell phones. Why? By law, when attempting to track a missing person via cellphone, you must subpoena his or her cell phone company for access to the last known 'ping'. This process wastes valuable time.
  • An automobile accident occurs every 6 seconds in the U.S., with a fatality from driving every 16 minutes. Due to the difficulty of pinpointing someone’s exact location while driving, the Silent Beacon ensures that medical personnel and family members know exactly where a user is – and can reach that person quickly.
The following crime clock is another sobering reminder that the Silent Beacon is needed.



As a society, we need a faster and more reliable method to help those in need. Silent Beacon boasts the perfect balance of innovation and integration to help decrease the victim rate and increase safety within our communities. The following crime clock is another sobering reminder that the Silent Beacon is needed. Please help us in funding this revolutionary product, while keeping our community safe and lowering the crime rate! Friendster and Trackr Bravo both utilize bluetooth 4.0, we use both 3.0 and 4.0 to create a larger range of alert possibilities.

PRODUCT TIMELINE

WHO NEEDS SILENT BEACON?
Senior Citizens / Baby Boomers. It is a well-documented fact that over 7 million seniors fall each year. With over 10,000 Americans becoming seniors daily, our product reaches an ever-growing market. 

Women and Children. Women and children face many risks in life and are more likely to be the victims of a crime than men due to their perceived vulnerabilities. The Silent Beacon will help them in the event that they encounter a dangerous or life-threatening situation and need immediate assistance (or to be found) in a hurry.

People with Medical Conditions. Regardless of age, those who have physical disabilities and conditions such as MS, physical and mental handicaps, epilepsy, diabetes, etc. will benefit from the Silent Beacon’s ability to connect with medical personnel or loved ones in just seconds.

Teenagers. Car accidents are the leading cause of death for this age group, and younger drivers (ages 16-19) are more likely than older drivers (ages 20 and up) to be involved in a fatal collision. Many parents would value a device that allows them to contact and track their children in a way that a cell phone alone cannot. 

Outdoorsmen, Those with High-Risk Occupations, and People Who Live Alone.For those involved in solitary pursuits like jogging or hiking, the Silent Beacon is an invaluable device. A person with a high-risk occupation like a security guard or bank teller – and even someone who lives alone – will enjoy the ability to have added security and help when needed.
