DS-48 co-founder Charles Andrews stated that early users of OverWatch have described it as ‘an affordable security concierge’. The OverWatch app will track your position in the world every three minutes. The app can pinpoint your location to an accuracy of eight metres on average.
After doing so it will pass this location information to secure monitoring centres based in the United Kingdom, in London and in Texas, USA.
24×7 Personal Security Monitoring
Present at the various monitoring centres across the world, security analysts with highly trained military and agency backgrounds trawl through intelligence reports from a variety of news and bespoke sources.
These operatives work to pinpoint possible hazards and emerging threats for those in their care. While incidents of distress maybe mostly unlikely. Help from OverWatch is there on the rare occasions that it is needed.
Peace of Mind for Travelers That Need Security
In a world full of ever present new dangers and threats OverWatch is a security app designed to deliver peace of mind to those who can afford it. The OverWatch app is particularly useful when a client is traveling abroad or away from home for prolonged periods of time in risky countries or places.
According to co-founder Andrews, following the recent terror attacks in France and Germany, his clients have been able to receive new incident and threat alerts. In fact clients become aware of danger on within an average time of 20 minutes. Often before primary news sites such as Sky or CNN published initial reports.
The OverWatch security service works 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The app is constantly scanning news and intelligence chatter for threats and signs of danger. Fees for the personal security service are surprisingly affordable with fees starting from just £65 ($85) a month.
While Europe has hardly descended into chaos, there is an notable increase in terrorist threats and incidents across western Europe that cannot be ignored when planning a trip.
Hence the OverWatch app is a unique way and powerful service enabling travelers to gain peace of mind. The app delivers vital protection while taking a holiday or trip to the continent or elsewhere around the world.
