In a world that is technologically driven, Eyerus was created to utilise the existing technology to help solve one of the biggest pandemics in South Africa – contact crime, which includes sexual violence, rape, assault and Gender-Based Violence.
With almost every South African using a smartphone, the smart thing to do was to create a mobile app designed to provide personal safety for everyone needing the freedom to live without fear, in a society gripped by crime.
Eyerus is an automated algorithm that provides personal safety and security in the palm of your hands. You can now move with safety and freedom anywhere, at any time, without fear.
With a virtual companion like Eyerus, you will never walk alone but within an ecosystem created to improve security for individuals, businesses, and communities. Eyerus is not just an app, it is a technological gateway in combating contact crime such as sexual violence, rape, hate crime and Gender-Based Violence, creating a safer and equal society for all.
Safety in the palm of your hands.
Eyerus uses smart technology to give you and your loved one's peace of mind, by keeping you connected and helping within reach, anywhere, anytime.
This state-of-the-art innovative technology features:
Green Alert Mode – Safe and Sound
The green alert mode indicates you are safe and all is well. When you feel your safety is being compromised you can escalate the alert mode according to the severity of your situation.
Amber Alert Mode - Audio Recording
By simply shaking your phone you can automatically activate the amber alert mode which triggers live audio streaming to a secure cloud. You can activate the amber alert mode in any situation where you feel unsafe.
Red Alert Mode – Live Video Streaming
When you find yourself in escalated danger, the red alert mode will notify your pre-assigned guardians. The app will automatically share your location and happenings with them via live video streaming which is instantly uploaded onto the secured cloud.
Blue Alert Mode – Armed Emergency Personnel Dispatched
Activating the blue alert mode will dispatch private security services with an average 5 to 8 minutes response time in urban areas, covering all nine provinces in South Africa.
Check-In Alert Mode
You can determine how long you want Eyerus to keep watch over you. If you do not check-in within a predetermined time frame, Eyerus will then alert your guardians, in turn giving your guardians remote control to trigger the blue alert mode if you are unresponsive.
Dead Man Trigger
This feature allows you to keep your finger on the Deadman trigger icon on your phone and if you are in danger and you remove your finger from the trigger button, a 10-second countdown will begin. Should you not enter your unique code Eyerus, will automatically escalate to the user subscribed alert mode.
When the vault opens up, this feature allows you to view what you have uploaded to the cloud according to dates (voice recording or their video streams).
