Stay Awake

What is alertme®

About the size of a bluetooth earpiece and lightweight, less than an ounce, the alertme® is the latest and safest lifesaver electronic device that helps prevent accidents caused by falling asleep behind the wheel.

The alertme® device works by detecting when the user’s head nods while driving or working which indicates that you may be feeling drowsy. Its ergonomic design makes it very comfortable to wear and improves your vigilance on the road.

Voice of the People

Testimonials from our customers

“Used it on a cross-country driving trip. Once I figured out how to get it on (yes, I read the directions), it worked. I had no problem getting it to stay on even though I wear glasses.”

Used it on a cross-country driving trip

“It works as advertised. You put on right ear, bend or tilt head and it gives a sharp continuous sound. I recommend it for safe driving.”

Safety device that I use

“I do a lot of driving. Saw this and thought it was a cool concept. It's super loud and definitely would wake me up. Test it out before you use it as you have to get it just in the right spot. Wearing it is no big deal.”
