beacon by WanderSafe is a discreet, non-violent personal safety device developed to help you or the one you love de-escalate a potentially unsafe situation. The beacon was designed by a female travel professional in collaboration with Safety and Security expert, retired CIA professional Thomas Pecora.
The beacon incorporates principles of basic safety to deliver a powerful non-violent way to stay safe:
- a 1000 lumen flashlight — Illuminate a potential threat
- a Strobe light — to disorient and distract a potential threat
- a 140-decibel personal alarm (to attract attention and scare a potential threat)
- a Silent ALERT feature that sends an SMS notification to three pre-set contacts with exact map coordinates and that you are in need of an urgent call
With a beacon, help is 3X faster than a single call or text, where seconds could mean life or death. It is designed to empower you to ‘go anywhere’ better and safer.
The beacon and WanderSafe application pair quickly and cordlessly using Bluetooth technology. The beacon makes a perfect safety companion for students, solo travelers, elderly parents, and remote workers. It is ‘help in your hand.’
The beacon is a part of the WanderSafe mission to positively impact 1 billion lives by 2025. For each one we sell, we place one with an NGO Partner to distribute to communities where people are most vulnerable.
Beacon and WanderSafe, you and our trusted community of travelers and commuters. Let’s be Safer Together.
WanderSafe is proud partners with CrimeStoppers International, Airline Ambassadors and Purchased.org working together to reduce violent crime and human trafficking.
