Free App - Unlimited Use - GPS & heaps more
The free Get Home Safe - Personal Safety app is simply a smarter and safer way of telling others what you are doing!
Simply use the App to set yourself a safety timer for when you are "home safe" from whatever you are doing, add a few details, and head off to do what you were going to do! Your plans are shared with your contact for real time GPS updates and any notes you make along the way.
Check-in when you are 'home safe' and job done.
Simple as that;
Use the Get Home Safe app next time you head out and do what you do.
One of the beauties of Get Home Safe is you can use the app to set a Recurring Safety Timer to check-in during an activity, not just when you are home safe.
You can check-in every minute walking home after dark or every hour when cycling, boating or Hiking
GetHomeSafe was founded on the idea that the most important phone call you will ever want to make is a phone call for help that you can’t make.
Tracking what you do with GetHomeSafe provides both a fun way to share what you are doing in real time and the reassurance of a fail-safe alerting system to call for help if it all goes wrong and you can’t call for help yourself.
That is right, no matter what happens to you or your phone GetHomeSafe will send an alert if your safety timer runs out. No coverage, no battery and a drowned phone, no worries, the GetHomeSafe servers will send an alert on your behalf.
You choose when and why to use it, basically any time you want the reassurance of an alert being sent if you can’t call for help yourself and/or you want to share your live GPS tracking with those waiting at home for your safe arrival.
The top Five most common uses are:
There are many other common uses like fishing, mountain biking, hunting, boating and even going on a date.
It is completely up to you when to use the app.
Get Home Safe-Personal is a free app for unlimited personal use.
We do charge for SMS alerts if you want to use them over and above the email alerts.
Logging your next adventure
Before you head out, open the app, enter a few details about what you are doing, select your live tracking/emergency contacts and set yourself a safety timer.
Hit Start and off you go!
With GetHomeSafe - Personal you can invite your contacts to view the GPS tracking of your activity in real time via email or SMS. Perfect for keeping loved ones update with your progress or bragging about what you are up to!
Out and about
During your activity it is a good idea to open the app, check your progress and Check-in every now and then, especially after you have been out of coverage for a while.
You can add notes along the way, perfect for recording changes of plan or envious updates to those watching your living tracking!
Getting Home Safely
When you have safely completed what you were doing or got to where you are going simply open the app and hit Finish. You must do this before the timer runs out or an alert is sent!
If you are running late click on the plus symbol at the top of the timer and Extend it.
There are built in reminders that buzz and beep (even without coverage) to remind you to extend or finish your activity before your timer expires. Once you reach your destination or wish to deactivate tracking simply hit the Finish button and the alerts will be deactivated.
You need phone coverage to Finish or extend tracking; so set your timers accordingly. Location sharing is stopped upon the safe completion of your activity or task.
Not Home Safe?
If things have not gone as planned and you don’t Finish tracking as planned the server sends an alert on your behalf via email and SMS* to all the people you have selected as a contact. The alerts are sent from the Get Home Safe servers, not your phone. This means you don’t actually need a working phone or coverage for an alert to be sent! This is what makes GetHomeSafe simply clever, it is the ultimate safety net!
GetHomeSafe alerts your contacts when you can't, letting you call for help when you need it most. *For GetHomeSafe Personal SMS alerts are optional and you will require credit on your GetHomeSafe account.
You’ll often be using GetHomeSafe regularly for the same thing or the same few things. Once you have it set up you can tell others what you are doing faster and smarter than you can text them! Simply fill out what you will be doing and how long it normally takes, hit the favorites tab and save it. Next time you go to use the app simply hit favorites, pick what you want to do, start tracking and off you go!
