About POM Safe

At POM Safe we are committed to engineering solutions that make the world safer. We create mobile-app + IoT technology designed to improve personal safety and, importantly, Peace Of Mind (POM stands for Peace Of Mind!). Our solution is aimed at enterprise clients as well as consumers.

Enterprise customers get additional access to a dashboard to manage alerts triggered by POM Safe users.
