The company was founded in 2010 after a gap in the market for lone worker protection services using pioneering technology was spotted. Trading under subsidiaries – Skyguard, Peoplesafe and Guardian24, the group offers an exclusive range of personal safety devices and apps which link to our own purpose-built, 24/7 Alarm Receiving Centre.
When an alarm is raised, trained Controllers are able to identify the user, pinpoint their precise location, communicate with them via two way audio and escalate to the emergency services, if appropriate. By utilising Police Unique Reference Numbers (URNs), Controllers are able to bypass the 999 system and contact the local constabulary directly, saving vital minutes in an emergency.
Clients range from midwives working for the NHS to Police forces helping to protect domestic abuse victims, plus hundreds of household names in the commercial sector, ranging from Pets at Home and Talk Talk to Dairy Crest and Weetabix.
