Help on hand when you need it
In Family Violence situations, perpetrators will often break or disable their victim’s phone, leaving them unable to call for help. To overcome this, we created the safety watch wearable duress alarm. By harnessing the power of wearable technology, our duress alarm watch provides people at any risk level with safety and peace of mind, knowing that a full response can be activated at the push of a distress alarm button.
How it works
Being a wearable device and doubling as a smartwatch, our duress alarm is designed to be a discreet piece of technology. If at any time the wearer feels they’re in danger, they can engage the duress alarm with a simple two-step activation. This immediately opens live audio recording and provides our accredited monitoring centre with GPS location to pinpoint exactly where where you are.
We work with a number of Family Violence support groups to offer this solution to those in need. The solution includes the watch and a 6-month monitoring plan fully funded by Help@Hand for those who qualify.
