Have you ever gotten stuck outside your home and wished you could contact your loved ones quickly? The React Sidekick can help. It is a low energy Bluetooth device that pairs with a free smartphone app to enable you to contact your friends or those close to you when you are in real trouble. All you need is press the React Sidekick button, and your message will reach others. In fact, your contacts will receive an emergency alert email and text message letting know where you are.
This device also lets you post emergency messages to Facebook and Twitter. You don’t need to find and unlock your phone when you have this gizmo around. It even works when the companion app is running in the background. The React Sidekick will support text-to-911. In fact, you can just put the app in the “Help Me” mode to get in touch with local authorities. It will have a modular, gender neutral design. It will work with iOS and Android devices. Sets you back as low as $29, but you have to be an early supporter.
