They were right, delivering in 2015 the best selling personal alarm in the country - a concept new to many. The "sound grenade" as it was called was noted as the world's smallest SOS alarm, featured on the Today Show with Kathie Lee Gifford, and received coverage on several notable national programs, such as Jimmy Kimmel Live! and The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien.
