Aiden is an AI that helps you avoid unsafe areas Worldwide by suggesting safe (re)routing alternatives.
At Aiden, we know from experience, that personal security should be a big priority to all of us, whether it’s for your family or just yourself.

So what is Aiden?
Aiden is a digital assistant that consists of 2 paired devices: A physical Alarm and an iPhone App.
– Paired together, Aiden will alert you, whenever you approach an area, that is considered unsafe.
You can also use Aiden as a GPS and navigate safely from A to B when driving, bicycling, or running. Helping you stay safe.
Setting up and pairing Aiden is really Simple:
Setting up only takes 1 minute, press and hold for 2 seconds to turn it on, follow instructions in App , enable Bluetooth (of off) and hold for 5 seconds to pair.
App Awareness mode
After pairing device, you will see the Aiden Awareness mode. It scans your surroundings every 15 minutes and if the status changes, you will get an alert from Aiden and a notification from the App
GPS / Search Mode
(Searching for a destination will typically give you 2-3 route-options, Risky (red), Less Risky (Yello)& Least Risky Route (Blue) We recommend always choosing the blue route by swiping the bottom card left. Follow directions like a regular GPS until you have arrived.
“High-Risk” Route options
If you choose High-Risk Route, you will be prompted with a warning and an option to return to the previous route selections or continue, this is followed by a brief description of the issues the route might have.

But Why is this service at all necessary?

The concept of staying aware of crime isn’t new. For centuries people have been keeping up to date with news on crime and today this is more relevant than ever. But overwhelming amount of Data from numerous news and social media outlets on crime, makes it difficult for us to get unbiased and objective information and filter it for good use.
– Whether it’s an unsafe street in Downtown LA or a “less than safe” Barrio in Mexico City we probably got you covered.
So why is Data on crime important when traveling?
When going on holiday, most travelers don’t check for crime-data when looking for Accommodation. the usual search parameters are price, star-rating, quality (and proximity). The rest is, like Data on Crime, well… Really hard to find! The same goes for Real Estate, where price, quality, Proximity of key infrastructure such as Metro stations, Highways, Work & good schools.
