Fall Detection and Mobile GPS Tracking Bracelet a Huge Hit at AARP 50th Anniversary Event BrickHouse Security Unveils the Innovative New BrickHouse Alert Technology Offering Total Coverage Both in the Home or on the Go NEW YORK--(Business Wire)-- BrickHouse Security, one of the most trusted providers of surveillance technologies to federal and state law enforcement agencies across the country, 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.
