uAlert is a true emergency response system that uses your phone's gps to locate you and, when you raise an alert, sends help your way. It is a "system" because there are teams of people actually involved; it isn't a mere self-functioning app. This is what differentiates this app from all other personal safety apps. It has been designed to offer the fastest and most efficient response in the event of an attack, notifying your friends and family, our center and the local police. Moreover, it offers more sophisticated features and internal reporting and statistics that will help us identify the specific social problems on a global level.
When the "Hi' alert button is pressed, not only is the police number in your designated country set up to dial out, but a video recording begins automatically and a short video is submitted to our centre. You have the option to send more video if you are able to. We have a team of personnel standing by for assistance and can communicate directly with the user/victim. What's more, we have the largest security company in the world able to offer scheduled security services exclusively through our app. (The only feature where there's an additional cost.)
Additional free features include User Check-In, Missing Child Poster, My Diary, smart watch compatibility (where you can alert us even more quickly) and much more.
The main purpose of uAlert is to send emergency assistance to victims of domestic or street violence and offer additional security services as well as some peace of mind. Visit http://uAlert.ca for more info.
