YOUR SAFETY IS IN YOUR HANDS
SOUTH AFRICA'S LARGEST EMERGENCY RESPONSE NETWORK
When it comes to protecting yourself or your family, there can be no compromise. Whilst most people have some sort of security at home, how safe are you when you leave your house?
Together with our trusted partners, we've created the largest Emergency Response Network in South Africa to ensure that you get the most experienced, efficient and reliable service when you're at your most vulnerable.
No matter where you are, 24 hours a day - be it at home, work, play, or even when on holiday anywhere in the country - SAFER enables you to take immediate action to get the help you need, which means you'll never be alone - whatever the emergency!
Medical Emergency backup is provided by ER24
Our Control Centre automatically links you to their Rapid Response Vehicles & Paramedics.

Instantly your alert is received by the nearest Security Responder.
Simultaneously, your situation is being monitored by our professional 24 hour Emergency Control Centre, who will ensure that the appropriate Emergency Service has been dispatched.
You'll receive a call within seconds to confirm the nature of your emergency and we'll remain in contact with you until help arrives. If you are not able to answer the call, don't worry - the closest armed response officer is already on his way to you!
At the same time, all of your selected Emergency Contacts also receive an SMS & Email, so that they too can see exactly where you are and what is happening, in real time - via video & audio recordings.
This advanced, world-leading technology is trusted by many international industry leaders and these are a few you may have heard of. HOWEVER - Only in South Africa do we have an incredible network of over 250 Security companies on call, waiting to respond to your alert!
Who Is This For?
SAFER was created with women in mind
However, EVERYONE IN SOUTH AFRICA BENEFITS. It's the safety solution that empowers YOU to take control in any emergency situation. The level of crime in our country means that everyone should be taking extra steps to ensure their safety. That said - what's the ONE THING you always have with you? YOUR PHONE . . . so make it work for you!
With this extra layer of protection, you are always PREPARED to call for backup when you need it most - no matter what the situation. And it's not just for women - the reality is that we're all at risk and our safety can be compromised in the blink of an eye. So hand the power back to your whole family and sign up to be SAFER today!

Let's Make A Difference!
