As the pandemic lingers, Americans are adapting to new ways of working, living, learning and playing. Yet a heightened national anxiety pervades, prompting many people to seek to enhance their personal safety and security - in an instant. What if a health crisis or risk of physical harm prevents you from being able to dial your phone, text or speak? And while our nation’s 9-1-1 Emergency Response teams continue to be inundated with over 240 million calls a year, this represents just 30 percent of the total help needed from possible violence victims or other medical emergencies, according to the National Crime Victimization Survey. BASU.COM has responded to this critical need by delivering the SOS Smart Safety app, via App Store and Play Store, which provides the registered user with a Smart SOS button and a one-tap option to summon help in an emergency.
Once a user is registered on the app, their basic profile is saved in a dedicated secured monitoring system, which starts the nearest emergency police, ambulance or fire dispatch process immediately by obtaining the user’s real-time GPS co-ordinates. This process can cut down the response time by automating information gathering and by connecting with the nearest first responders rapidly. Additionally, the user’s personal emergency contacts also receive an emergency alert message immediately with a real-time emergency live link.
“There are so many instances when in an emergency, people cannot talk or text, let alone go through the identity verification process or describe what kind of emergency they are in,” said Dr. Shub Basu, CEO. “Our mission is to address this issue of access to rapid help by leveraging the state-of-the-art 21st century technologies. It is a basic human right.”
What makes the eAlarm SOS app even more relevant in times like the pandemic, natural disasters or just a solo road trip is the Smart Check-In feature. Often, during non-emergency situations while being away from home or during long travel, individuals are compelled to regularly update their loved ones about their status or location. Smart Check-In provides an automatic way to keep loved ones informed while protecting privacy and preventing tracking during a non-emergency. Just set a time of the day and a loved one’s contact. eAlarm SOS reminds to check in during the set time. Tapping on the notification will notify the loved one that you are safe and sound.
“Smart Check-In can be used as needed in many different ways to add the much needed peace of mind on a regular basis,” Basu added. “As activities start to take off again this year, Smart Check-In can be a very useful companion of every individual as they venture out on their own.”
