SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- EmergenSee officially becomes a part of a coveted list, receiving a coveted award at Palo Alto's AlwaysOn World Headquarters. Named by AlwaysOn as one of "The 2014 OnMobile 50 Companies to Watch" the company that brought the marketplace an unsurpassed personal safety app rises in the ranks. Deemed notable by the technology companies, investors, bankers, journalists and industry insiders that select the winners for the award, EmergenSee is lauded for its innovation. It ups the ante on 24/7 personal security with an app that offers a way to have a virtual 911 in one's pocket. "We are honored to be selected as one of the Top 2014 OnMobile Companies to watch," said Phil Reitnour, founder of EmergenSee.
Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn, said of the innovative list-makers, "This year's OnMobile Companies to Watch are continuing to disrupt the established technology norms, creating an exciting new market for applications and infrastructure solutions. We congratulate the 2014 OnMobile Companies to Watch - companies that our editors believe represent some of the highest-growth opportunities in today's private company marketplace."
Leading the ranks of personal security apps, the EmergenSee app's free version offers users real-time streaming audio, video and GPS data features. When danger arises the app sends all three via text and emails messages to a circle of trusted contacts. These contacts act as guardians who can notify the appropriate authorities or help manage crisis situations for the app user.
The EmergenSee personal safety app also has a premium subscription service for $8.99 per month that acts much like a home alarm system. In case of an emergency, a notification is sent to a live security agent who assesses the video and dispatches the closest first responder. With a personal touch, the security agent simultaneously carries on a live chat via text with the user to assure them help is on the way. For added security the incident is recorded with a patented tamper resistant time and date watermark that is admissible as evidence if need arises.
Adding to its many benefits, EmergenSee's virtual escort is much like a personal bodyguard that uses a pre-programed timer. Perfect for campus security, if an individual is walking alone, they pre-set the app's timer, if it expires before it's deactivated, the app will automatically live stream video and GPS to pre-set contacts.
Campuses have integrated EmergenSee into the backend of their existing security protocol. With the modest licensing fee, students, faculty, and staff receive EmergenSee free of charge. On campus, the user can tap the EmergenSee app, their live video and GPS will stream directly to campus security.
