Device report

Sends a regular heartbeat to our control-centre in order to notify you in advance if anything is wrong with the device.

Device compatibility
The app allows you to determine the location of those you have added and allows those close to you, to be notified of your location in case of an emergency.
GPS / Wi-Fi network signals

Provides the benefit of being able to determine your location inside a building or between high-rise buildings, where GPS often fails.

Fast Response

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.

Who can benefit from

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. The app allows you, once the initial permission is obtained, to determine the location of those you have added to your “Follow others” circle. Affordable and necessary.


Unique benefits to keep you and your family safe.
