December 01, 2020

 

The year is slowly but surely drawing to a close, and what a year it has been. 2020 will forever be remembered as the year when everything changed forever. From the way we wash hands, to wearing masks, to the way we work, to isolation, lockdowns, and more. Another thing that has also changed in recent months is crime, specifically it's increases as people grow more desperate due to losing jobs and livelihoods. So apart from turmoil in our lives, we have also needed to adjust to the new ways in which crime is conducted, and we had to consider our security, and the security and safety of those we love. 

                                                                   

If you are one of the many people who worry about parents living on their own, loved ones who often travel alone, or those living in isolated areas, and safety at home in general, then you know the importance of getting help in an emergency situation. Although we want to be around all the time, it is simply not possible, and with the extra restrictions placed on our movement, staying safe can become problematic. Thus, considering the correct security measures for you and your loved ones becomes very important. With all the options out there, it is easy to become overwhelmed, especially when the similarities are small, and everything looks right to you. With a panic button on your phone, nothing can go wrong, provided you can actually get to your phone in an emergency. 

 

There is another option, and don't confuse it with anything else because at MyLifeline we offer wearable security devices that are completely independent, with own SIM Card and number, all calls go straight through to the panic device that can be worn around the neck or on keys. No need to reach for your phone, or a panic button on a wall, and a 3-second press is all that's needed to send a panic signal and an SMS with your location to five emergency contacts. The chosen 24/7 monitoring control room will dial the device when panic is pressed to try and establish the nature of the emergency. Additional to the SMS that is sent to your five emergency contacts, they will also contact the emergency contacts and will not stop until help has reached you or your loved ones.

 The best way to make use of our products and services would be to check with your local security company if they stock or sell our panic device. We currently have resellers in 7 countries, including South Africa.

 It might have been a year of compromise, but you do not need to compromise on safety and security. Give the gift of peace of mind, and end the year knowing that you have a panic companion that works wherever you are.
