Silent Beacon, LLC. was founded with the goal of ensuring that every person with a Smartphone would be able to contact, alert, and be tracked by their loved ones in the event of an emergency. Our emergency app commitment to safety, convenience, affordability, and customer satisfaction is our driving force.
We are the first company to offer this type of device (and the first to file a patent application for the Silent Beacon). Similar competitors offer their products at significantly higher price points and do not provide the same mobility and seamless integration that allow for a much broader user base.
Competitors’ products are also driven by outdated technology – along with lengthy contracts and monthly fees that simply do not return value. In addition, the majority of these products are only functional within a certain range of a speaker or other hardwired – and many times, outdated – devices.
Although a customer can buy a PERS system outright (from $100 to $1500), most customers sign a lease agreement. A standard PERS system lease agreement requires a nominal (sometimes zero) activation fee and monthly monitoring fees of $25-$45. The standard system includes a two-way voice console, a personal activator button (radio transmitter) worn on a pendant or bracelet, and telephone line or cellular access to a 24-hour emergency response center. Most companies offer a discount for subscribers who pay annually rather than monthly.
