SCOTTSDALE, AZ, Feb. 10, 2014 – First Sign Technology today announced the launch of the first-ever Hair Clip that serves as an automatic personal security system against violent crimes. The First Sign Hair Clip features a mobile application that automatically calls for help and begins to collect evidence at the first sign of an emergency.
The Hair Clips automatic alarm is activated when forces associated with a violent attack are detected with the hair clip’s accelerometer and gyroscope. It then uses a built-in cell phone to collect more evidence and call for help while the phone’s speaker lets the attacker know that “evidence has been collected and help is on the way.”
First Sign Technologies, which was founded by married graduate students Rachel and Arthur Emanuele at SkySong, the ASU Scottsdale Innovation Center, aims to launch cutting-edge products that make society safer.
“Violence against women is far too common and this is the first solution to not only be automatic, but to focus on increasing the prosecution rate,” said Co-Founder Rachel Emanuele. “The response we have been receiving has been overwhelming.”
Below are more details about the First Sign Hair Clip:
Automatic: An automatic alarm trigger is critical because the majority of attackers use the element of surprise, or your trust, to catch you off guard.
Great Alternative to Weapons: Firearms, knives, stun-guns, pepper spray, panic buttons and cell phones all become useless when the attacker has the element of surprise, or even worse, your trust. Moreover, it is uncertain how anyone will react under duress.
Lifestyle Friendly and Fashionable: The hair clip can be worn discretely concealed under the hair, as a fashion accessory, or clipped somewhere close. Either way, the clip is “out of sight and out of mind” but it will never stop working for you. There will be a 15-second window to deactivate in the rare case of a false alarm.
Offers Deterrence: The deterring effect starts by notifying the attacker with the phone’s speaker that“Evidence has been collected and help is on the way.” The attacker will no longer be able to act without consequences.
Prosecution:Evidence is immediately collected once the alarm is activated. A microphone on the hair clip transmits audio evidence while the phone is used for its camera, GPS, speaker, and cell signal. The evidence is streamed to the monitoring station so all evidence will remain available to prosecutors even if the phone is destroyed.
Situational Uses: The Hair Clip can be used when dating, walking at night, driving, exercising alone, traveling, when workers are in your home, conducting a Craigslist or similar transaction, and more.
Cutting Edge: A paradigm shift in the security industry is underway. Companies such as ADT have already changed their strategic plans to focus on “Everyday Security.” First Sign Technologies is on the cutting edge of the shift in personal safety. They are the first mobile security system against violent crimes and the only solution that has the capability to identify, deter, apprehend, and prosecute attackers.
Where to Buy: First Sign is accepting pre-orders and contributions through their Indiegogo campaign. A strong show of support from society over the next 30 days is needed for First Sign to start providing peace of mind and safety by the end of this year. People that believe in the mission and product can pre-order here.
