Help Flash IoT

The first smart emergency light

Help Flash IoT is the first emergency smart light that features NB-IoT technology to connect vehicles with traffic control centres in an emergency.

This means that the light can connect with the DGT 3.0 platform automatically, notifying traffic control centres via the Vodafone network to:

  • Improve road safety
  • Reduce emergency response times
  • Provide added peace of mind when travelling

The safest and quickest way to signal a breakdown or accident

Help Flash is helping to pave the way towards connected mobility, enabling communication between vehicles, road infrastucture and traffic management centres.

Together with Data for Road Safety C-Roads and DGT 3.0 these devices will help to create safer roads and enhance speed of emergency response.

Roadside regulation is changing

In Spain, legislation RD 159/2021 of 16 March, regulating roadside assistance services, came into force on 1 July 2021. From that date, emergency lights called V16 become legal substitutes for emergency triangles.

These devices can be used up until January 2026. From that date connected V16 smart emergency lights (next generation devices) will be compulsory.

Help Flash is your light beacon for emergencies. Battery operated, small and so easy to use that you only have to worry about placing it somewhere visible—without getting out of your vehicle! Its bright flash warns other drivers, giving you 360° visibility and from more than 1 km (0.6 miles) away.

Frequently Asked Questions

Always display it at the highest place so that it’s visible from further away, and always as horizontal as possible to the ground due to the direction of the light beam. For cars, Help Flash should ideally be placed on the roof, or the frame on glass roofs, or alternatively the driver’s door panel (make sure it’s as visible as possible to other traffic). Make sure it’s not hidden by vehicle accessories such as roof mounting systems.

40% of breakdowns are electrical, which would make it impossible to connect the device to the vehicle. In such events, even the car warning lights would be useless, which is why the Help Flash is so essential.

No, Help Flash works mechanically by mechanical magnetic induction, which prevents battery discharge during its lifespan. It can go 5 years without being used and its battery will remain at 90% capacity. However, it’s a good idea to replace the battery every 2 or 3 years if you don’t use it because of the harsh storage conditions that can occur inside a vehicle (high and low temperatures, humidity, etc.).

Incidence is a road safety application that has agreed to partner with Help Flash as it’s the only light that comes with Bluetooth technology. Incidence works separately and has extra features with Help Flash Smart and Help Flash IoT by Vodafone.
