Pretty powerful stuff. A cloud service, a smartphone with (extended batt) for the guard, a smart phone and app for the citizen and you have a tracking system with duress using COTS equipment!

We have a company down here doing exactly the same thing called CritialArc and it seems to be a mirror image of Guardly using Wi-Fi, GPS and Cellular technology for triangulation including hitting up universities as the first obvious market.
