Sentinel – The Women’s security app that is only a few clicks away

The  women in Kerala can engage  this super smart cop, ‘Sentinel’  to be  on their guard duty 24 x 7! With the launch of ‘Sentinel’, a smart phone app exclusively for the safety of women, the women in Kerala has one more  protective tool in their arsenal in dealing with the hostile elements of the society.  This simple and user friendly app sends alerts in the form of emails and SMS to a host of pre-configured numbers.

Developed by MindHelix Technologies LLP, this product has been created keeping the specific needs and vulnerabilities of the urban women in mind by making the best use of the  multi-faceted technologies. Apart from the contact details and information of close friends or family, the alerts sent by ‘Sentinel’ will  have many other important information like the last known location, direction of travel along with details like mode of transport and vehicle number that the traveller can update. This application can be run  on smart phones with Android, Blackberry, Symbian, iPhone and Java operating systems and can be downloaded from

A recent survey  of  Assocham Social Development Foundation shows that over 53 percent of women feel insecure at workplaces, especially at night. This startling fact inspired the innovative team of an engineer and two engineering students to develop this exclusive safety app for women,  ‘Sentinel’

Kerala reported the highest crime rate at 312.5% among all other States, with the cases of domestic abuse and instances of outrage against women on a steady rise. This has made many cities in Kerala including Cochin, unsafe for women even during broad day light.  Now that this  smart app of “sentinel” is on guard duty, women are rest assured of a  fool proof protection  outside the comfort  zone of their homes. As there is  a range of   smart phones designed exclusively for women and smart phone penetration is at an all time high among  professionals, this alert mechanism is expected to catch up the fancy of women users in the days to come.

  1. The application will be of great use. But the thing is that the application is limited to smartphones/Iphones/Blackberries!!
    Nice to note that innovations are carried out to develop applications for the woman security. Hope this will be a good tool in the hands of woman.
