Why we are stronger together - MyLifeline

It has been said that we are stronger together and at MyLifeline we firmly believe that to be true. As we are slowly heading to the one-year mark since the first COVID-19 case in South Africa it is important to reflect and take stock of our blessings. Yes, 2020 may not have been the year that we envisioned at the end of 2019, and 2021 may not pan out either in terms of our hopes and dreams but we still have so much to be grateful for in a time where many people have lost so much. If you are healthy, and your family is healthy then you are lucky, and have so much that others may not have.

We always talk about safety and security from a product perspective but this is a different view of safety and security. Our health in good standing means for now we are safe, and if you are still lucky enough to have a job then that references security. How we go about our day, and what we do to ensure the safety and good health of those around us will determine our tomorrow and beyond.

Many people are desperate and crime as it used to be is no more. Crime has evolved from the chaos of this virus, and its theft of livelihoods and health into a much larger and often darker problem. It has also meant that physical security is no longer just home based but also needed outside of our homes and on the road. Therefore, it could be argued that a panic button is no longer a need but a necessity. There is no time in this day and age to reach for a phone or to first open a mobile application to ask for help in an emergency. So, it is important during these times that we could call for help as quickly as possible. Our stand-alone panic pendant only needs a 3-second press to alert the control room and five emergency contacts to your location, with all calls going straight through to the device which has its own SIM card as well. Business partners also has the choice of using their own control room setup using our free monitoring software.

Our device is one of the only devices that is capable of two-way voice communication, and that works anywhere a mobile signal is present which sets our product apart from the rest. Our device is also waterproof and made for the wear and tear of daily life.

Choosing the correct security fit for your lifestyle.

Choosing the correct security fit for your lifestyle.

One could argue that safety and security is the responsibility of each individual. However, safety as it is, who do you trust with your safety and just how much power do you give to one person or company in taking care of what matters most to you. In the modern age options for increased safety and security has grown beyond the normal alarm unit in our homes. These days there are a flood of applications, mobile SOS buttons, CCTV systems, and perimeter control options. All these different options could be overwhelming to the first-time security enthusiast, and as safety is considered to be a big thing, one could easily be persuaded to buy into a product at a premium price that could have been obtained for a cheaper price overall. Before making any conscious decisions about security it is important to research your intended service provider and established their overall reputation in your area. The last thing you would want is to sign up with a premium service provider, only to find out later that they are known for slow response times, failure of installed equipment etc. It is also important to check that your service provider is in fact SAIDSA approved, this is the stamp of approval for most security companies in South Africa.

The other important factor when considering a safety or security solution is to do a thorough assessment of your environment do determine what is needed and at the same time what will work best for where you are. This could include anything from gated systems, burglar bars or lighting. Once you have done an assessment it is easier to get in touch with a professional to find out if they agree with your assessment or to discuss possible alternatives. When considering any security solution, it is important to ensure that you have a mobile element as part of your overall risk strategy. This is usually a panic button or similar that can be taken with you wherever you go, and is not limited to home use for example only. This type of stand-alone panic button eliminates in many cases the need for reaching for a cell phone, or a panic button mounted on a wall. Many of these devices are also waterproof and notifies emergency contacts about a potential emergency or panic situation. It is also great for use on the road, when away from home for extended periods of time, or simply as a safety companion when using public transport or similar.

MyLifeline has a range of panic pendants available which are completely independent and has their own SIM card and number. The device is capable of two-way voice and has an average battery life of 3 days under good network conditions. It also gives security companies or authorities access to your health information such as blood type, allergies, and chronic diseases without the need for direct communication. This speed up the process of getting assistance in an emergency with the correct information on hand for personnel to use. The device itself is small and compact, and able to be worn on keys or around the neck.

This panic button has become a necessity for 2021...

Welcome to 2021. As we all reflect on the events of 2020, we are faced with stricter rules and another change in living as has become the norm in the past year. This means that struggling individuals would most likely struggle more and turn to crime as a short-term solution for a long-term problem. It means that through all the restrictions imposed on our lives we also have to be more aware of our surroundings, more vigilant and prepared for unforeseen emergencies. The landscape of how things used to be done has changed completely, paving the way to uncertainty and doubt.
