Have you ever gotten stuck outside your home and wished you could contact your loved ones to come help you out? Maybe you want to have a quick way to get in touch with local authorities about a situation you are facing. Whatever the case, a device like the React Sidekick can help. It is a low energy Bluetooth gadget that pairs with your smartphone to enable you to call for help by just pressing a button.
When you click the React Sidekick, people you trust are going to get an emergency alert and text message with your location. You can also post an emergency message to Twitter or Facebook. The React Sidekick eliminates the need for you to find your phone to call for help. It works even if its companion app is running in the background. The device has a gender neutral design. The React Sidekick will support text-to-911. The developers are including a LED visual indicator that turns red when you have contacted your loved ones.
The React Sidekick will be compatible with iOS and Android devices (check their site for the phone compatibility list). It is now on Kickstarter.
