V.ALRT: A Tool Against Sexual Assault On Campus By Angie Ethell, President of Lemon Drop Enterprises, LLC

Introducing V.ALRT 
By Lemon Drop Enterprises, LLC

Safety and peace of mind to decrease the risk of sexual assault, rape, domestic assault, and human trafficking. These are things that we want most for ourselves and our loved ones. Lemon Drop Enterprises is trying to help stop the risk of sexual assault and human trafficking globally.  We have three teenage girls and we are actively trying to help stop this widespread problem among girls and women that are at such high risk for assault over their lifetime.  All of us use the V.ALRT as an added safety measure to alert three (3) contacts with a phone call that will open up the microphone automatically on your smartphone so someone can hear you are in trouble in the event that an assault may/does take place. The V.ALRT also automatically notifies your 3 pre-programmed contacts with your GPS location and a pre-programmed text message, such as "I have an emergency.  Please send help right away."

Help is Only a Push of a Button Away!
Introducing the V.ALRT Personal Emergency Response Device, a small wearable device that works with a smartphone to sound an alarm and send out urgent calls and text messages with the press of a button. Summon help wherever and whenever you should need it. The V.ALRT is an ergonomically designed device that can be carried discreetly in a pocket or purse, or worn with one of several accessory options. V.ALRT makes it easy by working with your smartphone to offer GPS location in the time of a crisis. V.ALRT enhances personal security. Dark parking lots are less stressful with help just a click away. Hitting the V.ALRT wearable button will text your location to your contacts and sounds the panic alarm to scare off the ill-intentioned. The waterproof V.ALRT offers instant communication, even in the tub or shower.

Peace of Mind
V.ALRT's instant communication has a range of up to 300 feet outdoors. By wearing the device regularly, your 3 FREE, pre-programmed contacts are always at the ready paired with any device with Bluetooth capability. It can be worn around the neck as a pendant, around the wrist, or on your keychain. Press and hold the button for 2 seconds to alert your contacts you need help. The panic alarm can be turned on or put on silent mode, depending on the situation of the individual, and this feature can be turned on or off in the V.ALRT app downloaded on your device.

Using V.ALRT on College and University Campuses 

At Lemon Drop Enterprises, LLC, we have been actively following the spearheading efforts of reducing sexual assault on college and university campuses and are not impressed with the fact that a solution has been put in place. As senator Kirsten Gillibrand from Washington D.C. states "The price of education should not include a 1 in 5 chance of being sexually assaulted. America's colleges and universities are the best in the world, but it is simply unacceptable that they become havens for rape and sexual assault. It is time to take this crisis head on and end the scourge of sexual assault on our college campuses, hold offenders accountable, and keep our students safe." We have 3 daughters, one in college presently, and 2 preparing for college and this "sweep under the rug" act that is going on at all the universities around the country is very concerning for us.

By Juan Bagnell

We are a global distributor for a product called the V.ALRT, and our market had actually been centred around seniors and young children. We realized recently that the V.ALRT could actually diminish, and possible end the problem with sexual assault on campuses. Our teenage girls use it on their key ring in case someone ever tries to abduct them or sexually assault them and I think this could be the perfect solution to the ongoing dilemma that no one seems to have an answer for.  We at Lemon Drop Enterprises, LLC truly believe in this product and feel very strongly for all parents across the nation to not have to worry sending their children away to college anymore. Please help us stop the sexual assault on our children at our college campuses and take an activist approach with us on this issue.

Latest Technology

A Variety of Options Allow You To Stylize Your V.ALRT!
Using Bluetooth Smart (Bluetooth 4.0 LE) technology, the V.ALRT initiates calls and text messages from a designated smartphone (iOS or Android). With a single button press, the V.ALRT sends a command to your smartphone to transmit your location along with a personalized text message to up to three preselected contacts. You cannot put 911 as a pre-selected contact as there is a law in place that won't allow you to put 911 in. However, the option to override this is to get the local number for the call center for the police department and use it as a contact number and they accept emergency calls just like 911 would. The V.ALRT can even initiate follow up phone calls from your smartphone to ensure you get your contact's attention.

  1. Smart devices will automatically call the Police in EmergencySagacious contraptions will therefore call the Police in Emergency – Is it possible to build a device which normally call for help for you when it is basically required? The Police in New Mexico got a call for help from a sudden source. The startling source was a sharp home device which was accessible at the wrongdoing scene.
