There are many situations – in a nightclub, at party or on a date, where a person may be getting more physical or aggressive than normal. There have been a number of news reports about assaults at places we perceive as safe. There was an assault of a girl who jogged and of a girl who was walking home from a party. One of the solutions could be a panic-alarm, but studies show that only 1 of 14 are in the habit of wearing a panic-alarm.
This aroused a feeling in us – a feeling telling us that we must do something. We sat down and examined the current panic-alarms. There are several safety alarms on the market, but common to all is that they do not appeal to users. They are often hard to trigger, they do not look good, and they are unpractical. They appeal to families who feel it provides a sense of security, but where is the security when the alarms are not being used?
With this in mind, we wanted to create a panic alarm based on the users wishes and requirements. An alarm that you actually want to take with you, whether you are going to a party, at the gym or doing other activities. The result was Limenio.
