DesignTech will be introducing a wearable emergency cordless phone at the 2005 Consumer Electronics Show (CES). The 911 Guardian Phone enables users to press a single button on the miniature wearable phone to call "911" in an emergency situation without needing to be near a regular phone.
The call is connected directly to the emergency operator through the phone. The phone does not use a call center like other emergency pendants, 911 Guardian Phone has no service fees or usage charges.
911 Guardian Phone can be worn at all times around the neck, clipped on a belt, or carried in a pocket. The 911 Guardian Phone's 2.4 GHz operating frequency gives it a range of approximately 800 feet. 911 Guardian Phone does not need recharging since the replaceable lithium battery lasts one year or for up to 6 hours of talk time.
The company will begin shipping the phone in late April 2005. The suggested retail price is projected at US$139.95.
