The Ila Screaming Personal Alarm - It's a Scream!
Have you ever been afraid that you'd be so scared you couldn't scream? Now the ila DUSK Personal alarm gives you your voice back when you need it most. Feel empowered and safer without having to compromise on style. The screaming starts when the chain is pulled out sharply. The idea is that, at 130 decibels, it will either bring about help or at least scare off the would-be attacker.
Screaming Alarm is Designed to Shock and Disorient Attackers
Traditional personal safety device that sounds like car alarms and whistles - are routinely ignored. Named after the Hindu goddess of speech, the Dusk alarm emits an extremely loud and ear piercing female scream when it’s activated to surprise and throw an attacker off guard long enough for you to run. Research shows that people are more likely to respond to screams and yells than to the alarm of typical safety devices.
- Emits 130+ decibels, loud
- Sound like no other alarm, screams attracts attention
- Attaches easily to a key ring, your handbag, backpack or belt loop
- Looks like a quality fashion accessory, not utilitarian
Statistics show that in up to 80% of assault cases women have escaped serious harm by shouting, but intense fear or danger can cause women to lose their voices. It is an essential travel accessory for women travelers.

How Loud is the Personal Screaming Alarm & What is a Decibel?
The decibel (abbreviated dB) is the unit used to measure the intensity of a sound. The decibel scale is a little odd because the human ear is incredibly sensitive. Your ears can hear everything from your fingertip brushing lightly over your skin to a loud jet engine. In terms of power, the sound of the jet engine is about 1,000,000,000,000 times more powerful than the smallest audible sound. That's a big difference!
On the decibel scale, the smallest audible sound (near total silence) is 0 dB. A sound 10 times more powerful is 10 dB. A sound 100 times more powerful than near total silence is 20 dB. A sound 1,000 times more powerful than near total silence is 30 dB.
You know from your own experience that distance affects the intensity of sound -- if you are far away, the power is greatly diminished. All of the ratings above are taken while standing near the sound.
Any sound above 85 dB can cause hearing loss, and the loss is related both to the power of the sound as well as the length of exposure. You know that you are listening to an 85-dB sound if you have to raise your voice to be heard by somebody else. Eight hours of 90-dB sound can cause damage to your ears; any exposure to 140-dB sound causes immediate damage (and causes actual pain).
