How Could I.C.E. QR have helped us?
Several years ago, on a rainy, fall night while driving home from work with my mom, we came across an elderly man standing at an intersection.
Observing this man just standing in the downpour and walking in place, it became immediately evident that something was wrong. We pulled over and coaxed the man over toward our car. When we tried to get his name and address or a direction from which he came so that we could help him home, he had no idea.
It was obvious this gentleman was suffering from some sort of cognitive disorder. Left with no means to identify or assist this man, we called the police.
Ultimately, we heard a young man, the grandson, yelling his grandfather’s name from a few blocks away as we waited with the man for the police.
This event spawned the idea of how great it would be to be able to identify someone in these types of situations. Fast forward, technology advances, I.C.E. is your solution !
How I.C.E QR uses QR and NFC Technology
Have you ever lost your luggage or had a dog run away? It's a stressful experience, but with the help of technology like NFC and QR codes, it can be easier to reunite with your lost items or pets. At ICE QR, we use both NFC and QR code technology to help people in emergency situations. In this blog post, we'll explain how ICE QR uses these technologies to help you stay prepared and secure.
At ICE QR, we provide products like smart luggage tags and smart pet tags that use NFC and QR code technology. These smart tags are designed to help people quickly and easily access important information in case of an emergency. For example, if you lose your luggage, the person who finds it can scan the QR code or tap the NFC tag with their smartphone to access your contact information and help you get your luggage back.
Similarly, if your dog runs away, the person who finds your dog can scan the QR code or tap the NFC tag on the pet's tag to access your contact information and help you reunite with your pet.
We also offer an emergency medical alert bracelet that uses NFC technology to store important medical information. In case of an emergency, first responders can simply tap the bracelet with their smartphone to access your medical information and provide appropriate care.
In addition to helping get import information out during emergency situations, all scans will send out a text message with a gps link to where the scan occurred.
