tag-screen

It took about three-and-a-half years, but now hatched in Connecticut is a wearable device that could save lives. It’s called “Wearsafe.” It is a small tag you wear on your clothing or on a chain around your neck. If you’re in trouble at home or say you are a student on a college campus, you push it and it starts communicating with your smart phone and in turn lets family and friends know you are in need of help. It will be available in September, 2015.

The founders starting thinking about such a device on the heels of the Cheshire home invasion in which a Mother and her two daughters were murdered and also the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut in which 20 children were killed along with 6 adult staff members. We are living in a dangerous world and the developers want to help save lives with technology. One of the founders is David Benoit of West Hartford, Connecticut who is a technology lawyer. Benoit wants to get this into the hands of as many people as possible around the globe for safety as soon as possible and will be talking to law enforcement about this as well so that it can help in 911 emergencies.
