Our Story

Founded in 2012 by entrepreneur Boyd Peacock, GetHomeSafe Limited is based in the adventure capital of New Zealand, Queenstown.

Boyd grew up in the Fiordland region of New Zealand, one of the remotest places on earth, where staying alive can depend on getting help from others. Boyd quickly saw the potential of smartphones to revolutionise personal safety, from the wilderness to everyday life.

This vision of personal safety is now a reality in the GetHomeSafe’s Personal app which provides a free Guardian Angel service to the general public for personal and recreational use. After shooting straight to number one on the New Zealand App Store Charts on launch, the Get Home Safe – Personal app has grown to be very popular worldwide. It was also a finalist in the 2013 New Zealand innovation awards for Innovation in Marketing and Communication.

GetHomeSafe has expanded over time and now offers a significantly more comprehensive safety solution in GetHomeSafe Corporate, perfect for monitoring the safety of any group of people. We have many more exciting premium products and services on the way, so watch this space.

We trade as a New Zealand registered company (3713254) and we are also a proud member of the Queenstown Chamber of Commence.

Our Vision

We are on a mission to take safety from being a boring but necessary part of life and turn it into a beautiful service that everybody will understand and enjoy using regularly.

Our Values

We pride ourselves on being a trustworthy and respectable service provider.

We stand for people who get out and live an awesome life, who push their comfort zones and take responsibility for their own safety.

We believe in providing beautifully designed and quality software that both users and their contacts will love to use.

We believe in conducting business as a Guardian Angel and never ever,  as a big brother.

We follow industry best practices to ensure the security of all personal data we store.

We believe free is good, but we are not a charity.

Most importantly we would love to hear your feedback, suggestions and any general chat about making the world a safer place!
