F.A.Q.

Can the Silent Beacon Call 911?

Yes, in fact you can store any number you want! This can include 911, loved ones or any other emergency personnel phone number. Simply go inside the Silent Beacon Application and add a new contact, type in the number you wish and select as your Call Contact.

How would I know if I hit the button on accident?

We made the Silent Beacon with 2 indented buttons to avoid false alerts. In the event you still hit the device it will vibrate and red LEDs will flash.  If this does not get your attention it will also call your stored emergency contact allowing you to hear the Silent Beacon ring.

Do I need to have my cell phone with me?

Me or someone else accidentally replied to the activation text with STOP, how can I fix this?

Since you replied with “STOP” to one of our previous messages you will not be able receive a notification until you responded with “START” to the number.  In case you deleted the text, you just hit START to 310-596-8083.
