(NASDAQ: NXTD), today announced the expansion direct-to-consumer sales of Notifi911, the Company's retail Personal Emergency Response (PERS) device. Notifi911, LogicMark's newest Mobile Emergency Response pendant, connects users to 911 at the touch of a button on the wearable pendant allowing them to speak directly to a 911 operator anytime and anywhere there is cellular service. The product is now available for direct-to-consumer sales through Walmart.com and can be purchased at www.walmart.com/ip/Notifi911-Mobile-Medical-Alert-Pendant/190036398.
"Adding Walmart.com to our national retail distribution of Notifi911 will greatly increase the availability of this valuable personal safety device for consumers," said Stanley Washington Chief Revenue Officer and President healthcare for NXT-ID, Inc. "We are pleased to expand the direct-to-consumer sales of a product that provides safety, security and peace-of-mind at a fraction of the cost of monitored alert systems."
Notifi911 is a self-contained unit that does not require a base station, landline or cellular plan, follows extensive in-store trials. There is no annual contract, no monthly charges and no monitoring fees to use the device, which offers a distinct value proposition and disruption over other monitored devices currently on the market by providing consumers with a product at less than 10 percent of the cost over the lifetime use of monitored devices offered by competitors. The Notifi911 pendant is fully rechargeable with a standby time of 3 months when fully charged. The robust design of the Notifi911 allows the pendant to get wet so it can be carried and used during outdoor activities and during heavy rain. LogicMark offers a one-year limited warranty on Notifi911.
