April is Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month and as a company whose mission is to help reduce and put an end to sexual assaults, we're excited to announce that we'll be donating a percentage of our April sales to RAINN, the nation’s largest anti-sexual violence organization.
Statistics show that nearly 1 in every 5 women is attacked at some point in her lifetime. Sadly, many of these emergencies happen nearby friends/family, but there isn’t enough time to contact loved ones or police.
Leaders in wearable safety accessories and professional monitoring partner to help protect more people with discreet safety solutions
BOSTON & BOCA RATON, Fla. (January 01, 2021) – Smart wearable company invisaWear and ADT are collaborating to introduce more advanced mobile safety and monitoring features into invisaWear’s ground-breaking line of wearable personal safety accessories. The partnership brings together ADT’s mobile safety platform and invisaWear’s unique line of lifestyle-inspired safety devices. ADT will also power invisaWear’s companion app, allowing users who feel unsafe to discreetly connect - by voice or SMS chat - with ADT.
“Our users rely on us in high-pressure situations, and we’re thrilled to now offer them the professionalism and trust ADT is known for, at the simple push of a button,” said Rajia Abdelaziz, CEO of invisaWear. “ADT has given us the utmost confidence that should our users need assistance, they’ll receive the right safety resources and help.”
invisaWear’s wearable personal safety devices are discreetly incorporated into accessories for all ages, including bracelets, necklaces, keychains, scrunchies, and more. A simple double-press of the button quickly initiates an S.O.S and sends an alert to ADT along with their location. ADT will notify the customer’s emergency contacts, alert authorities, and share their location, as well as other personally identifiable information to help emergency responders locate and identify them. Users can also set a timer and invite ADT to track them for a designated time period, like when out on a date or showing a house. If a user does not check in, ADT has got your back.
“ADT and invisaWear have partnered to provide customers with a wearable safety device that is both stylish and discreet,” said Leah Page, Vice President, Mobile Security & Strategic Projects at ADT. “Customers now have more options than ever to stay safe on the go, backed by America’s most trusted security company.”
invisaWear creates safety devices that are disguised as everyday accessories. They look like necklaces, bracelets, keychains, fitness bands, and even hair scrunchies but they all have a button hidden on the back. When double-pressed, invisaWear products send a text message to up-to five pre-selected emergency contacts; the text notifies the emergency contacts that the user is requesting help and contains a link to the user’s location. The jewelry also offers an optional contact 9-1-1 feature.
ADT is a leading provider of security, automation, and smart home solutions serving consumer and business customers through more than 300 locations, 9 owned and operated monitoring centers, and the largest network of security professionals in the United States. The company offers many ways to help protect customers by delivering lifestyle-driven solutions via professionally installed, do-it-yourself, mobile, and digital-based offerings for residential, small business, and larger commercial customers.

The Beverly Carter Foundation was created as a result of the senseless kidnapping and murder of real estate broker Beverly Carter. Beverly was targeted because she was perceived to be a “rich broker who worked alone.” The Beverly Carter Foundation (BCF) is a completely independent not-for-profit foundation dedicated to the ideal that every agent goes home safe every day by providing scientifically based research, information, consulting, training, and support at little to no charge to every MLS, association, brokerage, and agent. In honor of Realtor Safety Month we’ve partnered with the Beverly Carter Foundation to share their top safety tips for agents!

I never meant to start a company, it all started by complete accident after a scary situation I had...
Thursday, September 25, 2014 was an exceptionally beautiful, fall-like day. For Beverly, it started as a great day. Not only was it a busy day in the office, but Beverly had even won $50 in an office competition.
Around 5:15 that evening, her day began to wind down. Beverly called Carl, her husband of almost 35 years, to let him know that she had one last 6:00 appointment. She told him she was going to end her day by showing a house to a couple and then pick up dinner on her way home.
What Beverly didn’t know was that her clients – a man and a woman who had identified themselves as a relocating, married couple – weren’t looking to buy a home. They had a sinister plot in mind to use Beverly to get quick cash.
