Lee from Brooklyn, New York

With a wireless doorbell, I won't miss deliveries of important medication.

I am self-employed as a food vendor, but recently have been having health troubles. I need to make sure I don't miss medication deliveries!

My need and situation

I am a 55-year-old self-employed food vendor. I've been having some financial difficulties for the past year. Business has been very slow lately and only have enough money to pay some of my bills and get maybe some items of necessity; clothes, deodorant, shampoo, etc. Currently, I have been experiencing several medical difficulties that has caused me to visit emergency rooms and my primary doctor more than in the past.

My goals are to maintain my health and hopefully retire within a few years.

I need a wireless doorbell, so I can hear when the delivery man is attempting to deliver my medication. Also, if in the event of an emergency, I would like to be able to know when help arrives.

Meeting this need will help me because getting the tools I need to stay safe within my home would benefit me tremendously by allowing me to have the knowledge of knowing when someone is at my front door. Normally I would ask anyone coming to my home to call beforehand. However, because I live in the basement of a private home, cellular service is not always the best.

I have been working with the client for approximately 5 months and I have watched this individual health decline within this short span of time. The wireless bell would be helpful in so many ways with having the knowledge of knowing if someone is trying to contact him when visiting his place of residence.
