eResponder Honored for Exceptional Innovation

CARY, N.C., June 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Securus, Inc., an award-winning leader in mobile personal emergency response systems (PERS), today announced that its eResponder has received a 2014 M2M Evolution Product of the Year Award from M2M Evolution Magazine, the leading publication covering the machine to machine movement.

eResponder, a small, lightweight, mobile PERS device, allows seniors to live independently while having fast access to a care specialist anywhere in the U.S. where there is T-Mobile cellular coverage. The device enables users to break free from landline-based systems that only work in and around the home, giving seniors the freedom to travel anywhere, anytime, knowing that help is available at the press of a button.

"With eResponder, we have leveraged M2M and location technologies in a way that is very simple for seniors to use," said Securus, Inc. CEO Tom Collopy. "We're honored to be recognized by M2M Evolution Magazine as one of the key drivers of M2M innovation."

Simple to use and shower-safe, eResponder features two-way voice communication and a rechargeable battery that lasts up to two months on a single charge. If users need to be located, emergency care specialists can connect them to 911 to utilize U-TDOA location technology.

"The solutions selected for the M2M Evolution Product of Year Awards reflect the diverse range of innovation driving the machine to machine market today. It is my honor to congratulate Securus for their innovative work and superior contribution to the rapidly evolving M2M industry," said Carl Ford, CEO of Crossfire Media, a co-publisher of M2M Evolution Magazine.

"It is my pleasure to recognize eResponder, an innovative solution that earned Securus, Inc. the 2014 M2M Evolution Product of the Year Award," said Rich Tehnrani, CEO, TMC. "I look forward to seeing more innovation from Securus in the future."

The winners of the 2014 M2M Evolution Product of the Year Award will be published in the third quarter edition of M2M Evolution Magazine and on www.m2mevolution.com.
