V.ALRT Wearable Alert Device from VSN Mobil

I love when advances in technology help keep us safer and more connected. And a wonderful example of technology helping families is the V.ALRT Personal Emergency Response Device.

It is a small wearable device that works with a smartphone to sound an alarm and send out urgent calls and text messages with the press of a button.

You can slip the little round device in a pocket or purse, or better yet… it can be attached to one of several accessory options such as a pendant, wristband, or belt clip. The belt clip is sold separately, but the pendant and wristband are both included.

How I Plan To Use The V.ALRT

I was sent a sample to try and I’m really pleased with how simple it is to setup and use. I’m going to give mine to my 74 year old mother. It’s a perfect way to help me not worry as much about her.

The device has fall detection, so if she were to fall, I’d automatically get a text message and/or a phone call.

If any other emergency happened and she needed our help, she wouldn’t need to fumble for her smartphone or get it out from her purse or find it somewhere in the house. She’ll have the device on her wrist or clipped to a pocket, and she just needs to press it for 2 seconds and we’ll come running.

I also plan to get a device for my girls when they get a little older and more independent.

The Technology

Using Bluetooth Smart (Bluetooth 4.0 LE) technology, the V.ALRT initiates calls and text messages from a designated smartphone (iOS or Android). With a single button press, the V.ALRT sends a command to your smartphone to transmit your location along with a personalized text message to up to three pre-selected contacts. The V.ALRT can even initiate follow up phone calls from your smartphone to ensure you get your contact’s attention.

It’s even waterproof! You can wear the V.ALRT in the shower, while exercising and swimming. I love that there’s no need to recharge as it provides up to a year of use before needing to replace the battery.

  1. Heidi Z says

    I would use it for my kids when they aren’t with me or for myself when I’m alone since I’m a type 1 diabetic.

  2. latanya says

    I would use it for my in laws since they are older and in case somethings happens, we can help them.

  3. Priscilla Pursell says

    I would want my 70 year old Mother to carry this. My Mother lives by her self. It’s what she wants. I worry about her falling.This would give me peace of mind knowing that if she did fall, help would be called fast.

  4. Rosie says

    Wow, I didn’t realize that an alert could be sent automatically – this makes the hardest part to make sure the person will wear it – always!

  5. Leanne Norman says

    I will either use it myself since I go out late at night and I am not exactly in the safest city or I would give it to my mom to use for when she catches a cold because her asthma has gotten worse over the years.

  6. Nancy Loring says

    I would give this to my daughter. She is going away to college in another state and I know I am going to be worried sick about her and her safety. This is the perfect device to put my fear and anxiety at ease.

  7. Bailey Dexter says

    I would love this for myself in the house, this would give me a great piece of mind. I have a hearing barrier and this would be perfect for kids, I always have to run & check on them wherever they are to make sure they are ok.

  8. Tammy S says

    If I won I would have my mother use it. She is in her 70’s and all of us kids worry about her slipping and falling when no one is around.

  9. RaeD. says

    Shame this only works with a smartphone. I don’t have one. Neither do my parents or spouse. It looks like a good gadget.

  10. Sharon Lalonde says

    I would give this to my 87 year old father as he lives by himself and I’m always worrying about him.

  11. Rebecca Parsons says

    I would definitely let the girls use this because I worry about their safety all the time when they are out. This would give me a piece of mind.

  12. meagan bs says

    i think i would give this to my mother or grandmother. my mom is disabled and has had issues with falling in the past, she once spent a night on the floor trying to get to a phone, it was very traumatic for her, a device like this would prevent something like that from happening again.

  13. Edmond says

    I would give it to my niece for her BD gift. . Thanks for the awesomeness, the contest, & generosity.

  14. Barbara Hutcheson says

    ******I would definitely use this for my son! Even though he’s a teenager he will still be my baby boy that I will always look out for!******

  15. Taylor Closet says

    I would keep it for myself, I work night shifts and going into a dark parking lot I’m always alert but would feel safer to have this on hand.

  16. Jill Myrick says

    I would keep one of the devices to use for myself as I suffer from Epilepsy and have a lot of triggers such as flickering lights etc and spend great deals of my time alone.
    The other device I would give to my dad who recently had open heart surgery.
    So that if there were any problems he could seek help immediately.

    This would be great for my grandpa. His health is bad and this would make it easier for his caregivers to do things in other parts of the house from him.
