Laipac S-911 Bracelet Locator
Think of the S-911 Bracelet Locator as a 911 call on steroids. It's a multipurpose device that includes a digital watch, a GPS location tracker, an emergency cellular phone (with a tamper detection lock wrist band), an SOS Emergency button, and a motion sensor. A keypad lets users send alerts in the event of an emergency; they can enter a pre-defined group e-mail list that directs emergency events to any smart phone and/or call center. The S-911 uses intelligent motion detection and a geo-location system that uses GPS and a GSM/GPRS transceiver, integrated on the SIM card. The result is a lightweight watch-sized device with 40 hours of battery life that allows a person to move around without restricting his or her liberty.
