The guys over at NACOMhave come out with a new product for Real Estate Agents, The Agent's 911 . I was contacted early on in their design process as we covered attacks on agents such as Sarah Anne Walker on the site. Their company has been in the ATM security business providing a means for contacting the police quicky if a service agent for an ATM is accosted.
Obvioulsy, they understand the need for a a quick response in the face of an emergency.
And as the bad guys realize what an easy target a real estate agent is in the homes they are showing, security will become more and more of an issue for real estate agents.
So the team designed The Agent's 911 for Real Estate Agents. Essentially it is a live panic button in the homes that are for sale that places a call to the local police if an agent feels they are in trouble. The agent will wear a pendant or bracelet that has an activator that can be pushed to alert the authorities that a problem is occuring.
So instead of being alone and scared if you think you are going to be assaulted, you can immediately start the police response.
The system can be used in homes that are occupied, and if the home is empty, phone services such as Verizon also have a low cost 911 service for homes that the phone service is turned off on.
Also ease of use is a big factor in the design of the product. From the website and e-mails with the creators I learned that the system is easily installed. An agent that is not technically savvy will not have a problem quickly and correctly install the Agent's 911 unit.
Agent safety is not something that brokers want to mess around with. The combination of a safety alert system with a sign to ward off criminals could save the life of an agent.
The Agent's 911 is taking pre-orders now, but if you are a real estate agent or a broker, I would take the time to check them out.
