Welcome to BüddyGuard

Welcome to BüddyGuard, South Africa’s most technologically advanced personal safety provider.
We understand that nothing is more important than the well-being of your loved ones, which is why we want to help you keep them safe. BüddyGuard offers a state-of-the-art panic button and easy to use app, making sure that the best technology is used to provide unmatched tracking, response and assistance when you have an emergency. We promptly send out an armed response or medical response team or even an ambulance if required at no extra cost.

The difference

We can determine someone’s location in case of emergency, much quicker with the technology used. A location is determined for both the cellphone and the panic button, independent from each other. This is critical in case of theft of the cellphone. BüddyGuard makes use of satellite- based GPS signals in conjunction with Wi-Fi network signals on the panic button. This also provides the benefit of being able to determine your location inside a building or between high-rise buildings, where GPS often fails.

Apart from the superior technology to quickly determine your location, we also make use of advanced technology to submit the emergency trigger. On the device, we also make use of radio frequency for increased reliability and accessibility. The BüddyGuard panic button boasts a battery life of 2 years to avoid only realising during an emergency that you forgot to charge your device. The panic button also sends a regular heartbeat to our control centre – in order to notify you in advance if anything is wrong with the device.

Our medical and armed response teams provide the best response times in the country. A traditional response team would first have to phone to determine your location, whereas we provide automated location information directly to the control centre with the first signal received from your device. We don’t rely on one security company but rather deploy an armed response or medical team that is closest to you and is part of a network of service providers.

Do you have an elderly parent? A child that uses school transport? A teenager that likes to visit the mall? BüddyGuard will assist you to keep an eye on them, so you don’t have to worry. The app allows you, once the initial permission is obtained, to determine the location of those you have added to your “Follow others” circle.
You can also allow those close to you to be notified of your location in case of an emergency.
Affordable and necessary, purchase your BüddyGuard panic button.
