Abstract -
Safety is one the primal needs of a human, be it children, men, women or senior citizens. A sense of security is usually achieved when family members are reachable at all times. According a recent survey, the percentage of women safety apps have increased by 10-15%, but the effectiveness of these apps are usually evaluated by the accuracy of the location, affordability and reliability. After extensive study and comparison of the current market apps' features, affordability and reliability, we have developed a system that encompasses a wearable device, and an Android app. The wearable device eradicates the need to carry phone in the hand at all times. It also consists of a button, which when pressed consecutively sends out an SOS to the chosen guardians. The App in contrast to the other apps can be used either with the device or as a stand-alone app. This system has been designed to not only use the internet services but also the carrier services to provide increased flexibility and reliability. The addition of street address in the SOS, automatic voice recording and use of social media increase the chances of getting saved by 10%. This system has been developed mainly to cater to the needs of people of all age groups and is aimed at providing enhanced safety along with increased affordability, efficiency and reliability.
