Smart & subscription-free, Direct911 is the easiest and fastest way to contact emergency services.
Santa Clara, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/22/2014 -- In true emergencies where every passing second can make the difference between life and death, dialing 911 might not be fast enough to save a child drowning in a pool, prevent permanent brain damage in a stroke victim or stop a heart attack from becoming fatal. Putting aside medical emergencies for a moment, today’s violent world with crazed gunman shooting people in schools and offices, a split second can save a life when trying to reach the police. That’s because one’s ability to call 911 is only as fast as they can reach for a phone.
But what if a phone can’t be found right away? What if the battery is dead? Or if you aren’t able to dial the emergency number? That’s where Direct 911 comes in; making it easy for even a young child to summon life-saving help with the push of a button. Within seconds a 911 operator is on the phone and help arrives within minutes. A speaker and microphone is built right in giving users clear communications with emergency services under even the most chaotic of conditions.
Easy to install in any home, office or automobile and running on its own internal power for up to ten years, the ease of use and reliability of Direct911 is a step forward in the personal safety market.
After two years in development from conception to perfected prototype, the Direct911 team is ready to mass produce Direct911. To this end they have launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise the $190,000 to roll out the units in quantity to North America. Future plans include expansion across Europe with models compatible with the telephone systems of various countries.
This crowdfunding campaign ends on November 14, 2014.
