All Points Media Works, LLC
As Seen On CNN Headline News and NBC!
A Panic Button for your loved ones! In the event you are feeling unsafe, you can have SafetyGrid at the ready. SafetyGrid will keep your phone from sleeping while in the foreground. Simply press and hold the SafetyGrid button on your iPhone or iPad and SafetyGrid will silently alert up to 5 of your personal contacts, of your situation and your estimated location. SafetyGrid now also supports working with a Monitored Alarm Service!! See http://www.safetygrid.net for details. SafetyGrid also supports entering an emergency number to be automatically dialed during an alarm. Unlike other systems, our messages support 2-way acknowledgement. You will know if your message was successfully sent, as well as if it was acknowledged. A visual icon in the app changes based on the state of your alarm!

Messages are sent to your contact(s) via SMS text messaging and email, as well as optionally by automated phone voice messaging and conference calls.* If you have a Facebook account, info requests can also be posted to your Facebook Status.

WHAT'S INCLUDED the purchase of this application includes the ability to alert up to 5 personal contacts, that you choose direct from your existing Address Book via SMS and Email as well the option to autodial an emergency number if using iPhone.

In setting up your system you may utilize the Test Alarm feature, which will simulate an actual alert, complete with Test SMS Messages and Emails. Note:Emergency AutoDial Testing requires non-emergency numbers be used.

The SafetyGrid ADVANTAGE You'll be visually notified of the status of your alarm request by color changes to the alert button. You'll be notified of reactions to your alarm status such as: -Message Delivery Success - Message Delivery Acknowledgement - Network Failure to Submit

This means you will know when someone reacts to your alarm, indicating that your contacts have received your notification providing peace of mind. Also just as importantly, letting you know when there is a problem getting the message delivered to the SafetyGrid servers.

If the SafetyGrid user presses the Home button after an alarm has been sent, the application will continue to provide updated location information to the Safety Grid system. The alarm must be cancelled to stop it.

All status notifications are silent while SafetyGrid is running in the background. This allows you to initiate an alert and hide the application, keeping it in "stealth mode" so as not to alert potential attackers that you have alerted contacts for help.

IN COMPLETE SILENCE Even if you can't or are unable to speak, SafetyGrid can safely and discreetly notify your friends and family members or alarm service of your need for help.

Activating Monitored Alarm Subscription on your additional devices. You can use the SafetyGrid Monitored Alarm Subscription on all of your devices. Simply choose the existing user option at initial setup and use the same registration information you provided for your subscribed device.

ACCURACY OF LOCATION INFORMATION depends on many environmental conditions that are outside our control. Accuracy is best if you have a clear unobstructed view of the sky.

MESSAGE LIMITATIONS You are given free SMS/email/Facebook alerts. (Excessive of the system due to large volumes of needless alerts is subject to service limitation)

Note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

DISCLAIMERS SafetyGrid is not meant to be a replacement for dialing 911 or contacting the local authorities in the event of an emergency. *US and Canada Numbers only for optional automated voice alerts. See website for details. Ensure the stored emergency number you choose is correct for your current location and update when you move or while traveling as appropriate.
