Today’s post is brought to you by Occly, a Chicago-based security company that specializes in wearable personal safety devices. While the Occly Blinc personal safety device is useful to just about everyone, as a mother, I find them especially attractive as personal safety devices for women and children.
Personal Safety Devices For Women And Children
Occly’s mission is to significantly reduce violent crime rates across America, particularly among youth and women, simply by introducing the revolutionary, portable security system called Blinc™. This is a mission I personally find to be very relevant. As a woman, I have spent the majority of my life aware that sexual assault happens way too often. I am also aware that it is so easy to think that type of thing will never happen to you or your child or anyone you love. However, I can tell you from personal experience, it can happen to anyone.
When I was nine years old, a man attacked me in broad daylight walking home from the bus stop in the middle of the street. He called out to me to ask, “Do you know where Marshall Street is?” “No”, I called back over my shoulder as I hurried away. But he hurried after me and grabbed me and pressed himself against me. I got away that day and later the police caught him because he was already known to the police for shouting sexual remarks at passerbys. The point is, a wake up call and a message to make safe choices, teach our kids to safer, and always trust your gut. So you can see that for me, this message about personal safety devices for women and children, well, it’s personal.
Occly Blinc Wearable Personal Safety Device
So what is Occly Blinc and how does it work?
The Blinc is designed to function almost as a personal body guard. The Blinc offers much more than most personal alarm devices that simply try to scare off threats. The Blinc is a wearable personal safety system specifically designed to be a visual deterrent. It can be worn on the body, clipped to an accessory or placed on a stand for home defense. It’s an entire security system armed with a myriad of safety features in the palm of your hand and according to American Security Today, “the most comprehensive personal safety device on the market.”
This little video on Twitter shows the power of video to deter crime:

Blinc Personal Safety Device Features:
- 4 built-in surveillance cameras
- panic button with emergency response
- 24 hour live monitoring
- loud sirens

All of those safety feature fit in one small Blinc devise that is smaller than the palm of your hand. It can be worn around arm for runners and bikers. The Blinc can also be hung on a purse or backpack.
Personal Alarm for Kids And Women
When the Blinc alarm is activated, the device sirens begin and it illuminates, immediately alerting people in the immediate vicinity (which is a very effective deterrent).
Personal Safety System
But the alarm is not all. Occuly personal safety sytem is all while continuing to record audio and images (so useful because it can be hard to describe an assailant that comes from behind). All relevant information, including images recorded before and during the alarm are sent in real-time to a professional, 911 response center.
During the alarm, Blinc’s trained staff assesses the emergency situation by reviewing the images and live audio recordings. Blinc’s staff contacts and assists the customer, and dispatches local authorities to the emergency location.
