Have a great weekend everyone!
We’ve been developing a new version of our safety app and we’re excited about a new connected device that we’ve created that pairs with our new app. This new device puts peace of mind at your fingertips and eliminates the need to find and unlock your phone to call for help. In an emergency, simply click the button to send out a widespread panic alert to your friends and family who will receive an emergency alert email and text message letting them know where you are and that you need help. Even if your phone screen is off, in a bag or purse, the button will automatically wake up our app whenever it is turned on and within range of your phone.
The goal is to fund the first production run of the connected device via Kickstarter this August (What’s Kickstarter?) to help raise awareness and gain support (funding $$) to bring the product into production. Stay tuned for updates as we get closer to launching our campaign!
Check out some of our early concepts:

We appreciate everyone’s support and look forward to updating all of you on our progress as we begin this journey to transform the way people call for help in an emergency!
