July, 2015 Boca Raton, FL—Feeling safer and more secure away from home just got easier with the introduction of LifeFone’s Mobile Personal Security or mPERS app, Powered by SmartTek Systems. The “personal On Star-like” system is now available to any consumer with a smartphone, anywhere there is cell service. With one touch of a button on a smartphone, an individual, a family, a loved one away at college or employees can feel protected with GPS tracking and/or immediate access to LifeFone’s call center professionals, who can even provide “concierge” security service should one feel threatened and want to be accompanied until feeling safe.

 “LifeFone provides peace of mind and personal security with the push of a button, both at home and on-the-go for pennies a day.  Our location tracking is often more accurate than 911. You don’t need to wear or carry an extra device to get help.  You can protect yourself, your family and your employees anywhere in the U.S., anytime, using your smartphone,” said LifeFone President Ron Maggio. We like to say that LifeFone’s service is not only affordable, it’s priceless!

“Most of us understand how important it is to protect our property.  Protecting ourselves and our loved ones is even more important, so having a way to reach a professional central station operator whenever you feel it necessary truly provides peace of mind,” said Barry Schweiger, co-founder of SmartTek Systems.  “This technology goes way beyond a simple call to 911 for three reasons: 

  1. You don’t have to speak to get help when you press your button. 
  2. Your call center immediately accesses the profile you’ve provided when you press your panic button for help.  They know who you are and what vital medical and person information they need to relay to first responders. 
  3. The ability to locate you is often more precise than 911.

Industry leaders SmartTek Systems, and medical alert provider LifeFone, are bringing the same type of security millions have in their homes right to their phones with the introduction of LifeFone Mobile Alert and LifeFone Family Guard, both Powered by SmartTek Systems. The system works via an app that is downloaded from the Google Play Store or the iTunes App Store and costs just pennies a day. To get started, visit LifeFone Apps or call 1-800-882-2280.

SmartTek Systems has been developing its product for more than a year and recently introduced it to the security industry to much fanfare. Industry leader Security Sales & Integration Magazine has recognized SmartTek Systems and its mPERS Mobile Personal Security App as a 2015 MVP, Most Valuable Product, at its annual SSI SAMMY Awards reception held in Las Vegas. In its judging criteria for the SSI MVP Awards, the publication recognized SmartTek Systems’ mPERS for its, “innovation, functionality, competitive advantages and benefits to the end user.”

The SmartTek trio of apps is being adapted by industry leaders such as LifeFone. Originally comprised of SmartAlert (a panic, safety, and mobile personal emergency response system [mPERS] with nationwide coverage, designed to preserve the users personal privacy), SmartGuard (designed to give families peace-of-mind by providing optional location information about family members), and SmartTrack (a powerful fleet-tracking and mobile productivity solution for small businesses), the apps will be re-branded and adapted by LifeFone and others adopting the technology.
