$48,000 Funding Goal to Bring Product to Market and Help Save Lives
GERMANTOWN, Md., July 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Silent Beacon Inc., an innovator in personal protection, announced its $48,000 Indiegogo crowd funding campaign to bring its wearable lifesaving device to consumers. Designed to provide immediate aid to those in need, the Bluetooth device allows users to instantly locate, track and communicate with loved ones who require emergency assistance.
The Silent Beacon will sell for $59.99, making it the most affordable device of its kind. The devices – which have a pending patent application – are being presold through www.silentbeacon.com and their Indiegogo.com campaign.
"It is frightening to imagine ourselves or loved ones being physically assaulted or injured, but violent crimes occur every 26 seconds in the U.S. A device like this is vital, and potentially lifesaving," said Kenneth Kelley, CEO and Founder of Silent Beacon Inc. "Silent Beacon was created for the public to protect themselves, and with our Indiegogo campaign's success we hope to generate more technologies that help our seniors, children, and others in emergencies."
Kelley developed Silent Beacon after being involved in a car accident, which rendered his phone screen useless and made it impossible for him to contact family members. At that moment, he realized how desperately people needed a fast and more reliable method to get help in emergencies.
The Silent Beacon will be indispensable for people of all ages: victims of violent attacks, people with life-threatening medical conditions, and teens – who are more likely to be involved in fatal collisions than other age groups.
The Indiegogo campaign is intended to generate support for a product whose purpose is to protect community members and enable people to buy it at a low cost.
"I was offered eight figures for the rights to Silent Beacon, but declined, realizing the company wanted to sell it at a higher price; my goal is to save lives and give families peace of mind … not exploit crime. We believe Silent Beacon will become a low-cost crime deterrent that puts criminals on notice," Kelley stated. "We believe our products will drastically decrease the national crime rate, making America much safer."
