My youngest daughter has started her freshman year of school this year. While she is most worried about keeping up with her grades and making new friends, the most important thing to me is keeping her safe.

Because of our family schedule, I am not able to pick her up directly from school once it is over for the day. Her younger brother gets out of school several minutes before she does, and I have to make sure that I’m at the school early so that he will see me the moment he runs out of the door. And since I cannot be in two places at one time, my daughter has to wait outside of her school until I arrive for her.

Having had two other kids go through high school, I know how stressful it can get just thinking about your child’s wellbeing. If something happens, grabbing their cellphone to dial 911 may not be fast – or safe enough to help. I wanted to make sure that my daughter had a better option in case the unthinkable happens.

That is why I got her Wearsafe. It is a tiny device that can be easily worn undetected under clothing, and sends an automatic panic alert that an emergency situation has occurred at the press of a button.

Because of its size, my daughter can hit the button with her arm or elbow promptly and discreetly should trouble arise.

The best part about Wearsafe is that it sends the alert out to designated phones that are registered to the device, and sends GPS location of the person who sent the panic alert. I love this feature because it recognizes if my daughter is traveling or moving or stationary, and I can instantly jump into action. I can notify the police with all of the necessary information including area whereabouts and direction of travel, while heading to locate her myself, too. Plus, I can call 911 right from the Wearsafe app.

In addition to the GPS feature, Wearsafe also includes an audio function that can send me an audio file of 60 seconds before the occurrence at the push of a button. Being able to hear what is going on gives the context of what is happening, and can help tremendously when reporting to the authorities. There is also a group chat feature, which is perfect for our family – my husband, adult children, and myself can all create a virtual situation room to address how to help her should trouble arise, and assess the situation as a team.

The school season has just begun, and we have a long way to go. I am sure that my daughter will make a few friends who would not mind sitting outside and waiting with her until I arrive to pick her up from school. However, until then, I am glad that I set her up with Wearsafe. Since it the only product to offer audio, GPS and group chat, just knowing that she has it with her gives me an immense peace of mind. Heaven forbid, but if something does happen or someone tries to approach her, she can alert me immediately without tipping off the other person. As a busy (and concerned) mom, I view Wearsafe as my daughter’s own personal security companion! I can be at ease for the year as school goes on.
