Why ECHO!?

Because bad things do sometimes happen—even to good people. Be prepared!

  • Natural Disasters
  • Crime
  • Medical Emergencies
  • Living Alone
  • Stranded 
  • Urgent Rescue

Pro-Active Personal Safety is our passion!  Every time we read about a disaster—whether natural or caused by man—we reflect upon what could have been done to either prevent or limit the human suffering that invariably followed.

A similar passion resulted in the creation of the Baby Alert ChildMinder® System, a child safety system designed to prevent cases of children inadvertently being left alone in a vehicle.  Then, we quickly came to realize that adults, as well as children worldwide, suffer an equal vulnerability in this fast paced and often dangerous world.

We believe that for every problem, there is an equal algorithmic solution. After three years of R&D and  field testing, we now present ECHO!

  • A Single Purpose device – similar to the common pepper spray canister that some Users place upon their key ring "For Emergency Use Only!"
  • Simple – No learning curve ...  as simple as adding a canister of pepper spray to your key ring and pressing one button
  • Readily available – Small and always with you, wear it or place it on your key ring 
  • No Maintenance – 7 year standby
  • Performance – Operates on or off platform; location lock via GPS, GLONASS, Triangulation and Bluetooth; may also work in tandem with your smart phone
  • Life proof – Water proof, drop proof, extreme weather operating. 
  • Privacy – Relax, your location is only disclosed upon your request for assistance. Until you press the Echo alert button for assistance, not even our server can know your whereabouts
  • Affordable – $149.95 retail and $5.95 monthly subscription.

ECHO!  Dedicated to personal safety. 

With the tremendous daily demands placed upon the smart phone, coupled with its fragile nature, the smart phone is over tasked as a very reliable candidate for most unexpected emergencies. 

Although we all realize the necessity for dedicated security systems for our homes, our automobiles, office, and even our personal items (e.g., Bluetooth tracking buttons). However, for our most valued asset, our own personal security, at best we may use a shared part-time smart phone tracking App. 

Unfortunately, life does not provide conveniently scheduled emergencies to occur only when we're at home, at the office, or while in our automobiles. Emergencies can occur while  jogging, walking to/from the office to your automobile, even while on vacation.

Bottom-line, we do not have any personal security protocols in place..


Who need ECHO! Urgent Messenger?

We all do!

The ECHO! Urgent Messenger is so small, convenient and practical,  yet so powerful. Simply place it on your key ring or wear it around your neck. It is always with you when you need it.

In times of a crises, it's like initiating your own personal AMBER Alert™—family, friends and emergency personnel are placed on high alert with your exact location within 5 feet.

ECHO! the only consumer telecommunication product designated "For Emergency Use Only!"
