“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. "The SOS app solves that quickly and safely."

As the pandemic surges and the economy lags, so do heightened anxiety for many Americans and the need for enhanced personal safety. While most people know to call emergency hotlines, what if a health crisis or risk of physical harm prevents you from being able to dial your phone, text or speak with an operator? Moreover, while our nation’s 9-1-1 Emergency Response teams continue to be inundated with around 240 million calls a year, this represents just 30 percent of the total help required from possible violence victims or other medical emergencies, according to the National Crime Victimization Survey (2019). BASU.COM has responded to this critical need by launching the eAlarm SOS Smart Safety app, via App Store and Play Store, which provides the registered user with a Smart SOS button and a one-tap activation to summon help in an emergency. With a 24/7 Dedicated Monitoring Team, HELP is on the way!
When someone calls 9-1-1, they connect to a central operator who will ask several questions and verify the emergency, get information about the user’s location and then connect with the nearest dispatch. In an emergency, often people cannot make a call or have no time to speak. With eAlarm SOS, the registered user simply taps a button and the monitoring station knows the identity and dispatches the nearest Emergency Responders – much more quickly!
Plus, the user’s emergency contacts receive an Instant Emergency Alert Notification with a real-time live link showing the GPS location.
“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 and by offering an end-to-end solution.”
What makes the eAlarm SOS app even more relevant in times like the pandemic, natural disasters or just a road trip is the Smart Check-In feature. Often, during emergency situations, lone travels or during casual dating, individuals feel the need to stay connected to their loved ones and keep them informed about their general wellbeing. 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 inform the loved one that you are safe and sound. If you don’t check in, the loved one checks in on you!
“Smart Check-In can be used in many different ways to add the much-needed peace of mind on a regular basis,” Basu added. “If a college student, resident of a nursing home or solo traveler has not checked in at a scheduled time, the loved one can check back in on the user. It can be turned ON or OFF based on specific use situation or used on a regular basis.”
