Lifesaver iPhone Case Alerts Emergency Services At The Press Of A Button [Video]
A new smartphone accessory allows users to safely and quickly contact help in dangerous situations.
As scary as it is, an estimated 800,000 children are abducted each year according to the FBI. Additionally, they estimate that 3 in 4 women will fall victim to a violent crime over the course of a lifetime. Personal safety can never be taken too seriously, and a new smartphone case is hoping to provide emergency assistance more quickly, to help decrease these terrifying statistics.
The Lifesaver Case is an iPhone case with a built-in switch that contacts e911 and provides vital location and personal information at the press of a button. When coupled with the Lifesaver Case App, the device sends real-time GPS updates and personal details to emergency services, all the while activating your phone’s video and microphone recording capabilities. The switch requires a simple push and slide motion to avoid being accidentally triggered, but then subtly begins transmitting data without indicating attackers of your actions.
