What is SmartSafety?¶
Call for help … even if you can no longer do it yourself! Automatic monitoring & emergency call system for early detection of critical situations. Reduces rescue response times by up to 90%. With companion rescue navigation.
Every year, more than 20,000 people have accidents in the outdoor sector. It usually only becomes critical when friends and helpers do not become aware soon enough. Or do not know your exact position. Or no emergency call is possible at all because only 10% of the earth is covered by mobile phone networks. We deliver the missing 90% by satellite. And draw attention to you at an early stage. With your exact position.
SOS : What happens if…?¶
For each scenario (e.g. manual SOS or automatic crash/standstill alarm), different notification chains can be created with a 2-step escalation. Example: First SmartSafety reports your position via SMS/email to friends and team for comrade rescue. Upon their request or after a timeout, without reaction, professional rescue facilities such as mountain rescue or coast guard (via 112/GEOS) are then activated, which may communicate further with you or your stored emergency contacts.
