Media Release 2 March 2017
Release Date: Immediately
The location service developer Yepzon Enterprises is the first in the world to introduce a safety device, Yepzon™ Freedom, which combines an alarm function, GPS location technology, and indoors Wi-Fi location.
Yepzon Freedom makes the everyday of adventurers, school children, women, and the elderly safer than ever before. The device can be used in three different ways: as a safety alarm, as a locator equipped with an alarm, or just as a locator. With the help of Yepzon Freedom, a person in need of help can be located in seconds via smart phone. Yepzon Freedom uses GPS and 3G technologies and the Wi-Fi network for locating.
“Combining these functionalities in one device is something that has never been done before. Thanks to indoor Wi-Fi location, the location of the target can be determined just as easily on the other side of the world as inside a shopping mall,” says Otto Linna, the founder of Yepzon.
Effortless Added Safety
Yepzon Freedom is Yepzon’s response to the global feeling of insecurity.
“With Freedom, we want to make everyone feel safer in their everyday life and offer them the chance to live life to the fullest, without fear. Globetrotters, women jogging alone, elderly people out for a walk, and kids on their way to school can now call for help should they need it,” explains Mr. Linna.
Increased Demand for Locators
More and more, location technology is part of our everyday, and the popularity of different types of locators has skyrocketed in the recent times.
“Both consumers and retailers have shown a keen early interest in Yepzon Freedom. I believe that active teenagers, adults, and the elderly alike will find Freedom to their liking,” continues Linna.
Yepzon Freedom is for sale in the Yepzon online store, Amazon.com and well-equipped electronics retailers. The recommended retail price is €149 ($159, £129).
