With two weeks remaining in a crowd-funding campaign on indiegogo, Halo is now previewing the most advanced combination of app and accessory for iPhone 5s aimed at personal safety. As petty crime and cell phone thefts continue to rise, Halo adds unprecedented personal security technology to the iPhone 5s, while enhancing some of device’s existing features.

With fully customizable features including front-facing video support, a 115-decibel emergency alarm, proximity based anti-theft capabilities and text message (SMS) alerts, the Halo app boasts market-leading personal safety capabilities.

What’s in the app?

  •     Distance control meter for anti-theft proximity alarm
  •     Front-facing video control and support
  •     Gesture controls to deactivate the alarm
  •     SMS alerts with GPS control
  •     Customizable inbound LED alert system

After successfully crowdfunding over $50,000 via Seedrs in the UK, Halo aims to raise an additional $70,000 to bring the device and app to market late this spring.

Also included in Halo is a 20mm front-facing speaker, an ergonomic, comfortable design and an estimated 30 percent battery extension for iPhone 5s.

“It is the combination of innovative software and hardware that truly sets Halo apart,” explained Shane Smith, CEO and co-founder of Halo. “The ability to record video, sound a piercing alarm or a silent one, and notify emergency contacts with your GPS location means that Halo can protect users in any vulnerable position.”
