BrickHouse Security has unveiled the groundbreaking BrickHouse Alert at last week's national AARP convention in Washington, D.C. The BrickHouse Alert is a combination of the most requested security needs by AARP members and functions as part personal emergency response system, part home alarm and part GPS tracking bracelet. The new BrickHouse Alert was in high demand and all the rage amongst AARP attendees.

The new BrickHouse Alert offers the most complete, and comprehensive emergency response coverage in North America with trained live personnel 24/7 ready to assess any situation and spring into action.

Disruptive Technology Displaces Old-Fashioned Security
Most seniors are paying $40 - $60 a month for a home alarm that leaves them unprotected against the most common issue facing seniors...falls when alone. Some seniors also pay an additional $40 - $100 a month for a cell phone they have trouble using and only need in an emergency.

BrickHouse Alert has managed to combine all these technologies into an affordable package for seniors for a low monthly fee, while providing the equipment on loan free of charge.

"There are three major dangers for seniors: Falling and being unable to call for help, wandering due to Alzheimer's Disease, and medication errors," said nationally known seniors care and "Nana" technology expert Andrew Carle.

"We were honored to launch BrickHouse Alert at the AARP National Convention," said BrickHouse Security founder Todd Morris.

"BrickHouse Alert was created to protect our families at every stage of life, giving them the freedom to live independently without being alone while addressing the major dangers for seniors. BrickHouse Security continues its commitment to be a trusted source of personal security, safety and protection."

The in-home/on the go BrickHouse Alert coverage includes:

Tele-Assist "In-The-Home" Fall Alert and Inactivity Detection
Tele-Assist provides complete in-home assistance while allowing privacy and extreme simplicity. "It's so easy to use, one doesn't even need to push a button, and help is on its way," stated Todd Morris, CEO BrickHouse Security. "We designed this all inclusive system to provide the aging American population with the confidence to live independently with an added level of home security to keep them safe from intruders."

The first of its kind features include:

+ Fall Alert

+ No Activity Alert

+ Tracks body movement and calls for help if expected activity is not sensed

+ Intruder Alarm

+ Live Personal Reminders and Caring Personal Assistant

+ A live person will remind them of events, medication, doctors appointments and even wait for them to take out the trash

+ Emergency Alert Pendant

Mobile GPS Bracelet with Wander Alert
The Mobile GPS Bracelet with Wander Alert quickly and accurately alerts the wearer's family members, doctors, or emergency workers in case of emergency and puts them in direct communication. Perfect for the elderly, children, or just someone going off on their own, the BrickHouse Alert Mobile GPS provides live, real-time GPS tracking and immediate assistance when and where it is needed.

The Mobile GPS Bracelet features include:
