You can think of the Silent Beacon as a panic button of sorts that you can take with you. It’s a small, handy gadget that looks like a control for your car’s alarm or something, but don’t let looks deceive you, because it can do much more. First of all, it’s a GPS tracker so it can show your current location when there’s an emergency or if you simply want someone to know where you currently are.
When it’s pushed, the Silent Beacon can be programmed to send an email or SMS to the people on your emergency contacts list. It will also patch a call to 911 and send along your location so you can get assistance in a timely manner.
The Silent Beacon is currently up for funding on Indiegogo, where a minimum pledge of $90 will get you one of your very own.
