San Francisco, CA, June 16, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- B A S U eAlarm is a tiny device the size of a USB drive that initiates a 120 decibel alarm when the pin is pulled. The deafening alarm has been proven to deter criminals and attract attention. According to BASU.COM PR Associate Libby Cha, “Research shows alarms are the best possible deterrent when it comes to crime prevention. In fact, one rigorous academic study documents that 68% of criminals leave a scene completely empty-handed when an alarm is activated. If we can decrease the risk of a mugging or kidnapping by 68%, we are on the right track.”
The cool looking gadget generates moving user success stories on a regular basis. Users are known for uploading their testimonies directly to BASU.COM. The most recent and outstanding success story came from a college student in California. The UC Berkeley student prevented a mugging at a train station; she activated her alarm, deterring two attackers who took off running.
Unlike other safety devices, the eAlarm does not require the user to confront an attacker. This innovative technique is what makes the device special. “The point is to prevent an attack, rather than engage in one,” Cha says. “Most people who carry a small weapon like a knife or pepper spray aren’t professionally trained, and end up hurting themselves or arming their attacker. With a loud alarm, you can activate it from a distance to safely deter a perceived threat." This has made it very popular with explorers/solo-travelers, and students/families alike.
“It’s an incredibly effective crime deterrent,” said Sam Mansen, BASU.COM CEO, "People put alarms on their homes and cars, but not themselves or their children. Why not? Life is much more valuable, I think.”
B A S U has partnered with Amazon India, the country’s third largest e-commerce site. Repeatedly claiming the #1 Best Seller position on Amazon’s U.S. platform, the eAlarm is available on Amazon.in in four colors.
“Thousands of international browsers have expressed the unsatisfied need for this device to be made widely available in their respective countries,” said Dr. Shubhankar Basu, BASU.COM Co-founder and Technical Adviser. “We’re thrilled to be making the eAlarm more accessible to the Indian market.”
