Yesterday, Shadow launched on Indiegogo, the crowdfunding program. Shadow is a personal security device which is Bluetooth connected. It serves as a panic button that works through the Shadow app to provide emergency notifications to your personalized network with the press of a button. Your location is included in the alert notification to these contacts.

We wanted to create a simple device that would make anyone feel safe. I myself have felt threatened and have had many friends in unsafe situations, where making a phone call isn’t possible. Having the Shadow at your fingertips you just need to push the button and a custom alert will be sent for you automatically. We want people to have peace of mind in their everyday situations.Nishana Ismail, co-founder of Servabo

The Shadow is an essential basic emergency device that everyone should carry. There are no subscriptions or monthly fees. The Shadow’s pre-order price starts at $25. You’ll find more information on the Indiegogo campaign at the end of this article.

Servabo supports non-profit organizations that promote safety and security for the community and will be partnering with YWCA Evanston, the Ella Mae Foundation and RAINN as charity partners during the campaign.

The Shadow App will be compatible with Android 4.3+ iOS 5 and later versions of these operating systems and will be compatible with any Smartphone that is Bluetooth smart ready.

This sounds like something everyone should have on their person, and it is certainly a reasonable price for such convenience. Have a look at the website, and the Indiegogo campaign and let us know if its something you’d be interested in purchasing for your loved ones.
