Safewave Prepares to Launch Their Notification Band for the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing Community

Safewave is an accessory for intelligent security systems that takes the traditional system and adds a new form of alerting individuals with a sense of touch via vibrations. A band worn around the wrist like a watch, the Safewave alerts people with solid vibrations to wake them up from REM sleep.

“We have placed three motors adjacent to the ulnar and median nerve, giving our band enough vibration power to wake individuals from a REM sleep,” said founder Trevon Bruch. “The benefit is that those who are Deaf(+) rely on visual cues, but if they’re sleeping, they’re left vulnerable to break-ins and house fires. We want to provide safety and peace of mind for this long overdue demographic.”

While Safewave primarily caters to the Deaf(+) community, the brand also helps caretaking individuals monitor loved ones with dementia/Alzheimer’s, special needs, and more. The band allows monitoring without directly using vision or sound. Instead, individuals can be kept inside the home and receive notifications instantly if a breach occurs.

The company is in one of the most unique positions in the market as they are pioneering this innovation. “We are the only vibration-based accessory that is mobile,” revealed Trevon. “The only other vibration-based accessory is a bed shaker, which is limited to the bed and isn’t mobile. We have created a device that goes where you go and is convenient.”

Safewave is more than just a safety device and addresses other concerns like water resistance and charging abilities. In addition, the brand did not reinvent the wheel and instead added a ticker that complemented other successful companies in the industry, including Ring, SimpliSafe, Owlet, ADT, and more. Safewave also partners with major companies, giving them a competitive advantage using other mainstream and standard systems to market and expand quickly.

Once Trevon realized there was nothing in the market that provided the community with a simple & affordable way to keep people safe, he decided to make Safewave Technology an official brand in 2019.

Three years down the line, Safewave remains the only company in the space with a significant impact on the Deaf(+) community’s home and office security space. Trevon Bruch hopes that the brand will influence other companies to begin marketing and creating solutions for overlooked and underserved communities.The product will be launching its pre-sale on June 1st, 2022, with the product only costing $149.99.
