Personal Armed & Medical Response

Personal Armed & Medical Response

Panic Button

By simply holding down the hexagon button for 3-6 seconds, this sets off an alert and activates the user’s camera, sending a message and recording to the cloud-based dashboard and pre-defined emergency contacts.


Meeting allows users to feel safe when going into a potentially dangerous meeting or performing a dangerous task. A user set timer will countdown until deactivated meaning the user has to mark themselves as safe, otherwise raising an alert.

Armed/Medical Response

SAfer gives you a nationwide, on demand, automated armed & medical response network that dispatches armed help in times of need.

Evidence Gathering

When raising an Alert, SAfer can automatically start your smartphone’s camera and microphone to capture real-time evidence of the situation around you. Your responder and emergency contacts can access this evidence real-time, as well as being saved in the cloud.


Journey allows your users to set a start and end point. The app then automatically monitors the users journey and alerts their nominated contacts and the Control Centre once they safely arrive or trigger a panic alarm.

Your Privacy Matters

Choose when and when not to share your location. Our smart phone app makes it clear when the monitoring center can access your locaiton in times of need. Control what and when you share your location data.

How It Works

Raise Alert

In the app, raising an Alert is super simple. You can either shake your phone or hold the panic button for 5 seconds. This will trigger an Alert to our responders.

Armed Or Medical Response

The average response time is 3-5 minutes. During this time your live GPS location is shared, as well as your camera and microphone automatically recording. If you have set up Emergency Contacts, they will be notified too.

Mark As Safe

After the responder has arrived or the situation has calmed, you can mark yourself as self using your personal pin code. You can also use a Duress Pin incase you are being forced to close the Alert.
