TruSense Debuts Alexa-Enabled Personal Emergency Alert System

TruSense on Wednesday launched a personal emergency alert and response system compatible with Amazon's artificial intelligence assistant Alexa, having debuted it in the form of the TruSense GPS Smart Pendant compatible with the TruSense Home solution which can recognize when it is and isn't being worn. The technology has been specifically designed for seniors and is meant to ennoble the company's existing Internet-enabled security products and services by delivering a wearable that can be used outside of one's home. The GPS Smart Pendant supports customized alerts, being capable of notifying caregivers about the wearer's whereabouts in scenarios when they have left a designated safe zone or visited a hospital.

A physical two-way assistance button is also part of the package, allowing the wearer to manually send an alert or let their caregivers know everything is fine. The device is also capable of communicating with 24-7 emergency services and generally strives to provide its users with a maximum level of security even if they aren't wearing it throughout an entire day. TruSense says the wearable is meant to eliminate the false sense of security seniors could get when they forget to wear or charge the device, having been designed to send text or phone reminders about doing so to them and their loved ones.

Thanks to its support for Alexa, caregivers are able to ask the digital helper how their loved one is doing or where they're located. The technology can also send alerts when it detects the wearer hasn't moved for a prolonged period of time, in addition to shipping with support for fall detection and being waterproof. A two-way speakerphone is also part of the package, as is a versatile design that doesn't require the device to be worn around a neck or wrist, so long as it's still on one's person. The pendant and compatible products can now be purchased from the company, starting at $17.49 per month for an annual plan.
