Abstract

Pagers (or any other body worn device with a non- audible sensory alarm) in the silent (e.g. vibrator) alert mode are often removed from the body and placed on a desk or table, or in a briefcase or purse without being switched from the silent to the audible mode. In the silent mode, and without bodily contact, alerts from these devices will go undetected. A method to automatically switch the device to the audible mode when in such a situation as described below.
