What if you could discreetly call for help in 3 seconds in an emergency situation? Well, you actually can. Do you want to see how this is possible? Kwema, a Massachusetts based technology company that develops smart jewelry for personal safety invites you to try its new safety bracelet at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), that will take place in Las Vegas from January 9 to 12. Kwema will be showcased at Nordic Semiconductor’s booth as one of their success cases.
Kwema has developed a fashionable bracelet with a hidden panic button to help people in emergencies. If you’re in trouble, all you have to do is press and hold the button for 3 seconds. When the device is activated, the bracelet syncs with the wearer’s mobile to send an alert with the GPS location to friends, family, Kwema’s community of app users closest to user’s location and security services, who follow strict protocol to get to your aid.
The electronic device hidden inside the jewelry syncs with the users mobile via Nordic’s Bluetooth® Low Energy module, part of the reason why Nordic is going to be displaying Kwema’s bracelets on its booth during the four days of CES.
“It’s an honour for us to be showcased and highlighted by our partner Nordic Semiconductor at a such important tech event as CES” says Carmi Santamaría, Kwema’s CEO. “We would like to invite every single assistent of CES to stop by the booth to try our safety tech for HER. You just have to press the button for 3 seconds to see how it works. These are seconds that can save lives!”, she says.
Kwema has had early success in their implementations and is looking for distribution and Value Added Partners.
