    • Effective way to notify authorities of crimes or threats ranging from sexual harassment, domestic abuse, physical altercations, drugs, and gang activity, to medical emergencies.
  • Family check-in feature so parents & guardians can more closely monitor their children and loved ones’ whereabouts.
  • Distress message button and shake feature to send an emergency call, sms, and email all at once.
  • Push Back Notifications - for Universities to provide timely alerts regarding a gunman or campus lock-down to the students.
  • Crime Mapping, Chat with personal security assistant, Flashlight and much more.

Our second speaker will be Andrew Polcha, founder of  From Andrew's executive summary: : WORLD PIPE Communications Corporation (WORLD PIPE), a truly competitive alternative to cable and satellite video, is an “over-the-top” [(OTT) of a high speed Internet/broadband)] PayTV subscription service offering high quality streaming video over an Internet-based Virtual Private Network (VPN).
