SCOTTSDALE, AZ – Feb. 20, 2014 – First Sign Technologies today announced the launch campaign for the first-ever hair clip that serves as an automatic personal security system against violent crimes. The First Sign Hair Clip is a smart wearable device worn in the hair or clipped on clothing that works with a mobile App to automatically call for help and to collect evidence at the first sign of trauma in an emergency situation. This mobile security device is the only solution of its kind that has the capability to identify, deter, apprehend, and prosecute attackers.

A strong show of support in the next few weeks is needed to start production of First Sign Hair Clips, providing peace of mind and safety by Fall 2014. People that believe in the mission and product can pre-order HERE.
“The response to the Technologies has been overwhelming. Violence against women is far too common and this is the first solution to not only be automatic, but to focus on increasing the prosecution rate,” said Rachel Emanuele, co-founder, First Sign Technologies. “The First Sign Hair Clip can be used in so many different situation to protect you – when dating, walking at night, exercising alone, traveling, to protect kids against bullying, and many more.”
The First Sign Hair Clip’s alarm is activated when a violent attack is detected by the hair clip’s embedded accelerometer and gyroscope. It then uses a Bluetooth paired cell phone to collect more evidence and call for help while the phone’s speaker lets the attacker know that “evidence has been collected and help is on the way.”
Features of the First Sign Hair Clip include:
Automatic Alarm: Working with the user’s smartphone, the First Sign Hair Clip triggers an alarm that alerts professional security personnel at the first sign of violent movement using its gyroscope and accelerometer.
Evidence Collection: Evidence is immediately collected once the alarm is activated. A microphone on the hair clip transmits audio evidence while it connects via Bluetooth to the user’s phone to access its camera, GPS, speaker, and cell signal. The evidence is streamed to the professional security monitoring station so all evidence will remain available to prosecutors even if the phone is destroyed.
Lifestyle Friendly and Fashionable: The hair clip can be worn discretely concealed under the hair, as a fashion accessory, or clipped on the body somewhere close. Either way, the clip is “out of sight and out of mind” but it will never stop working for you. There is a 15-second window to deactivate it in the rare case of a false alarm.
First Sign Technologies is on the cutting-edge of the shift in personal safety and products that make society safer. For more information go to the First Sign Technologies’ Indiegogo page athttp://www.indiegogo.com/
