Who is it for?

We all need help and care in a variety of life situations. The Heroes Nearby personal safety app gives you peace of mind and significantly increases the chances of getting help as quickly as possible.

Do you feel worried when your child goes to school or training and back alone? Are you concerned about bullying? Are you afraid no one will be there to help your child out while you are not around?

By installing Heroes Nearby emergency and personal safety app on your children’s smart phone you can improve their safety and have peace of mind. With this app your child can send a quick and discreet signal straight to your phone regarding a potential or real danger they may face.  SOS calls come with a location tracker, and can be simultaneously directed to an unlimited number of people: relatives, friends and neighbours, as well as to the appropriate authorities. You can also count on the help of Heroes – selfless people in your community that you may not know personally, but who are ready and willing to help.

Do you have heart problem, suffer from asthma, epilepsy or another chronic condition? Have you already experienced a severe allergic reaction that threatened your life? Are you concerned about being alone or with people who don’t know how to help during an episode?

In situations where every second matters, with the Heroes Nearby emergency app you are one click away from sending an SOS call which clearly describes the type of danger you are in and how you can be helped. Not only will you inform your family and the emergency medical services at the same time, this call can also go to the members of the Heroes Nearby Community that have the necessary medical skills and are located in your vicinity.

Had a fall and unable to get up? Flooded home due to a burst pipe? Power blackout or other household emergency?

For elderly people, those with disabilities, or anyone who lives alone, an everyday household emergency, even when not particularly dangerous, can be a traumatic experience. Will the person in question remember to call someone at that moment? Will they be able to explain where they are and what happened to them?

With Heroes Nearby emergency app help is only a click away.  The person in distress will get an immediate response; who received the call and whether help is on its way.

A mountaineer in trouble? A cyclist with a minor accident and a broken bike? A sailor with boat problems? For all fans of outdoor sports and activities, Heroes Nearby provides an layer of extra safety and the possibility to get help as soon as possible.

The Heroes Nearby safety app can be customized to call relevant help with a single click. E.g. a distressed mountaineer could send out a call that would, in addition to his friends and family, alarm the emergency services, mountain rescue services, members of the local mountaineering society, and also other hikers nearby.

The world can be a dangerous place. Unforeseen situations, as well as little or big emergencies are a part of life and difficult to avoid.

Whether or not you have fears about physical assault, criminal activity or potential accidents, Heroes Nearby safety app is an effective, fast and reliable tool that can improve your personal security.  The Heroes Nearby app features, combined with the Heroes Nearby Community at your disposal, significantly increases your chances of a favourable outcome in stressful and emergency situations wherever you are.

Do you live in an area where the crime rates are high? Is there the possibility of a break in or assault at your home?

The Heroes Nearby safety app can be used in these situations to summon help, interrupt, and serve as a witness to criminal activity.

For members of city/organization safety nets

Features

The Heroes Nearby personal safety app is easy to use and carefully designed in collaboration with personal safety experts.

Alert everyone you want with a single call for help

Do you want to call only one person for help? A few of them? The neighborhood or the whole community? It’s all up to you.

Make your closest friends and family members your Private Heroes. Your detailed SOS call will reach them wherever they are.

When you need help, people and services that do not have the Heroes Nearby app on their phones, can be notified by SMS and email. They will see the details of your SOS call in real-time on the web via a special link.

Sometimes your family members and friends are not around to help you, nor are they closest to the scene. Then, you can rely on the Heroes Nearby Community – selfless, good people who are willing to help you.

Your emergency call should be heard by as many people as possible so you can choose to publish your SOS call on Facebook. 

Use the full potential of your smartphone for your safety

Provide valuable and useful information to your helpers and maximize your chances to get the quickest and the best help in every life situation.

Be prepared for any situation. You can use ready-made SOS templates or create your own. Templates allow you to pre-set an SOS message that will go to helpers (Heroes) in case of activation. Previously prepared SOS calls can be sent with a single click. This is especially important in critical situations when there is no time for hesitation.

For example, a person suffering from asthma could prepare an SOS call in advance, which in case of activation would go to his doctor, family members and friends.

For the case of a physical attack, it is wise to prepare an SOS call that will, in addition to your family and friends, alert all the heroes in your immediate vicinity as well as the emergency services, and so on.

It is important to record everything that happens on the scene. You can attach photos, video and audio recordings to each SOS call. This provides key details about the place, circumstances or attackers.

After sending the SOS call, all recipients will receive information about your exact location on the interactive map and real-time tracking will be activated (it lasts until the SOS call is canceled). This can be particularly useful if your location changes, in the case of running from attackers or abduction, for example.

If you are a witness to a situation that requires help (e.g. fights, destruction of property, criminal activity), you have the option to turn on the Witness mode, record everything on the spot and send it with an SOS call. The recipients will see that you are not in danger, but it does not mean that they should not help.

 

Carefully optimized for minimal battery consumption and GPS usage

The application is carefully optimized and does not drain the battery. In fact, the user may notice increased consumption only when he/she has an active alert (when he/she called for help or responded to a call for help as a Hero). Only then is real-time tracking enabled and the user’s location is taken every 10 seconds.

When an alert is activated, the app consumes the battery like any other navigation app and in that case the battery is not consumed by the app itself but mostly by the GPS. In all other cases, battery consumption is negligible. 

The app has a built-in intelligent system that estimates the GPS usage intensity during an active alert in order to optimize battery usage. In the case of the alert being activated for a longer period of time, the intelligent system begins to optimize the battery usage (the app will still consume the battery but significantly less). In all other cases, battery consumption is negligible. 

It is important to mention that the app does not have to be turned on for the Hero (or family and friends) to receive a call for help.

Smart wireless SOS push-button

Flic

In extremely dangerous situations such as physical assault or a medical emergency, every second matters. FLIC is a smart, wireless, SOS-push button which connects with the Heroes Nearby App on your mobile phone so you can send an SOS with one touch without having to search for your phone or open the app!

Its indoor range is up to 50m with a battery life of up to 3 years (replaceable). The FLIC button is coin-sized, reliable and lightweight. You can pin it to your clothing or a purse, attach it to a car dashboard or just keep it somewhere at home. Highly recommended by safety experts!
