How does Eyerus work?

As an app on your phone, Eyerus enables you to indicate how safe or unsafe you feel in your current surroundings through the use of four safety status modes – green alert mode for when you feel totally safe; amber alert mode for when you feel uneasy and intimidated; red alert mode for when you are in escalated danger; and finally blue alert mode immediately dispatches private security services to your location. These safety status modes enable your loved ones to know you are safe and assist you when you need it most.

Steps to follow to become an Eyerus user

1. Download Eyerus from your relevant app store

Eyerus is available for download on Google Play store and Apple Store. Soon it will also be available on Huawei’s App Gallery.

2. Register as a new user

Once you’ve downloaded Eyerus please fill in all the required information so you can be registered as an Eyerus user.

3. Load (maybe 3) people you trust as your guardians

Once you’re registered, go to Menu, open Profile, click My Guardians and add people you trust as your guardians. These are the people who are willing to stop everything and come to your rescue at your time of need (your guardians must also download the app).

4. Accept people who added you as their guardians

Go to Menu, open Profile, click on “Have me as Guardian” and approve requests from those who want you to be their guardians.

5. Now you’re ready

Now your Eyerus app is ready. You now have personal safety companion in the palm of your hands, wherever you are.




The green alert mode indicates you are safe and all is well. When you feel your safety is being potentially compromised you can escalate the alert mode according to the severity of your situation.




By simply shaking your phone you can automatically activate the amber alert mode which triggers live location tracking and audio streaming to the secured cloud. You can activate the amber alert mode in any situation where you feel uneasy and intimidated.




When you find yourself in escalated danger, the red alert mode will automatically notify your pre–assigned guardians.The app will also share your location and happenings with them via live video streaming, which is simultaneously uploaded onto the secured cloud.




Activating the blue alert mode dispatches private security services with an average response time of 5 to 8 minutes in urban areas, covering all nine provinces in South Africa. Live streaming to the secured cloud will continue.

Additional features
