Home Alone is a mobile app designed to provide a greater sense of security in the homes of defenseless or vulnerable people. Created for those in need of a strong, intimidating voice, vicious sounding dogs, or a firearm when one is not present or out of reach.
Continuous sounds can be turned on and played in combination until the user turns them off (growling and barking dogs, burglar alarm, etc.)
Single Instance sounds are common responses to a knock at the door (“Who’s there?” , “What do you want?”, “I’m not interested”, “Go away”, etc.) A personal favorite of ours is the 12 gauge shotgun pump! Single instance and continuous sounds can be played simultaneously.
Pair with a bluetooth speaker for amplified volume!
An emergency “Call 911” button is provided for quick access to emergency services. Thanks and be safe!
