SAFETY IN YOUR HANDS WITH THE STANDBYU SHIELD
The StandbyU Shield is a world-first safety solution that uses technology to create a secret and secure way to stay connected to loved ones, and put you in control of your family's life.
If you are fearful of someone, it's important you never feel alone. You need to know that help is available, in any moment you might need it. Now, you can feel safe and reassured, knowing you’re always connected to people who care.
YOUR STANDBYU SHIELD IS MADE UP OF THREE PARTS:
We bring together your friends, family and case workers into a personal support network
Together, we create an action plan based on your personal scenarios and safety concerns
Your plan is uploaded into your wearable device and connected to your supporters
QUICK AND SIMPLE TO ACTIVATE
When you feel threatened, every second counts. That's why it's really quick and easy to activate your StandbyU Shield. Simply press a button on your watch and you’ll be automatically connected to your supporters. They will be able to hear what’s happening and act accordingly.
A DISCREET SOLUTION THAT PUTS YOU IN CONTROL
If you feel concerned, simply press a button on your smart watch to activate the alert
Your personal support network will be alerted and receive live audio captured by your watch
Your GPS location is also instantly sent to your support network via SMS and email
Your support network are joined into a conference call to decide the best response
If needed, emergency services can be quickly and easily brought into the call
All calls triggered by an alert are recorded and provide evidence of what's occurred
A SAFER WAY TO STAY CONNECTED AND SUPPORT LOVED ONES
The StandbyU Shield is a secret and secure way to stay in touch. Only the people in your personal support network will know it's not a normal watch and there is no way for anyone else to trace or tamper with it, so you will always have a secure way to connect.
Friends and family are also trained on how to safely provide support in moments of need.
PREPARED FOR ANY SCENARIO
Friends and family are trained on how to respond to each potential scenario in the best, safest way possible for everyone involved
MONITOR FROM A SAFE DISTANCE
By listening in to what’s happening, they can decide the best response together, to ensure their loved one gets the right support
INTERVENE TO DE-ESCALATE
When the abuse is emotional and hidden, a timely call or visit from friends or family can stop the abuse
QUICKLY ACCESS HELP
If the situation starts to escalate, or there is risk of physical harm, they can quickly alert and brief the police
We definitely felt much safer… I was able to access my support straight away, and immediately, emotionally I felt better.
It has definitely made us closer to our family because it has made us talk about it. I have found that since then, my family are really understanding and supportive.
