Did you know that one in three women will be assaulted in their lifetime? What’s even worse is that many of their attackers will never be caught or prosecuted. This is not only sad, but extremely scary – especially for single women. A woman shouldn’t have to be stuck at home 24/7 or always around someone else in order to feel safe. So, what is a woman to do to help protect herself when out in the world alone?

Meet the First Sign Hair Clip, a smart wearable hair clip with a mobile application that can help to save your life. It’s also the world’s first mobile security system against violent crimes. The clip can be worn in your hair or on your clothing as a fashion accessory; the rest is automatic. In the video, you can see three fashionable covers that you’ll be able to attach to the clip – more are coming soon. No matter where you go, not only will you look stylish, but you can also feel safe.

During an emergency, the accelerometer and gyroscope on the clip can detect any type of impact like a punch, slap, kick or aggressive shake. Then if the clip isn’t deactivated after 15 seconds, a professional security team will begin to monitor what’s happening to you – much like how ADT Security Systems monitors your home.

First Sign uses Bluetooth to access your mobile phone’s GPS, camera and microphone, which all work together to help identify and apprehend your attacker. Those monitoring you will alert your emergency contacts with your location, while pictures and audio are being recorded via your phone. As you can see, the First Sign Hair Clip is one fashion accessory that you won’t want to leave home without.
