Redundancy it key to avoiding accidents on the mountain as much as it is to surviving them. The best beacon in the world is still a man made piece of electronics that can fail at any time, that's why you need the Pieps Backup beacon. The Pieps Backup beacon operates silently when worn against your body. The backup continually searches for signs of motion and signals from a nearby beacon. If the Backup detects absolutely no motion and can’t detect a signal from your main transmitter it will automatically activate and start transmitting. If at any time it detects that your main transmitter is sending or that you are moving it will discontinue sending its signal to avoid interfering with the search process.
