New York NY (SPX) Sep 16, 2008
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
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."
