Frequently Asked Questions

What is Occly?

Occly™ is a wearable personal safety device specifically designed to be a visual deterrent. It can be worn on the body or clipped to an accessory. Occly is armed with, a panic button, four cameras that record your surroundings, sirens, a microphone, LED lighting, Bluetooth capabilities and a number of automatic alarm sensors.  All Occly devices have a 1 year warranty.

How does Occly work?

Occly is connected via bluetooth to our mobile application on your smart phone. The mobile application works in harmony with the device and receives and sends various information back and forth. During the alarm, the mobile application receives the alarm notification and then alerts our 24-hour emergency response center.

What happens during an alarm?

When Occly alarms, it triggers sirens and lights alerting people in the immediate area, while simultaneously recording images and audio around you. All relevant information, including images recorded before and during the alarm, are sent in real-time to our 24-hour emergency response center. During the alarm, Occly’s trained staff assesses the emergency situation by reviewing the images and live audio recordings. At the same time, our staff contacts and provides assistance to the customer, and dispatches local authorities to the emergency location.

Who can receive an alarm notification?

In addition to the alarms notifying our 24 hour emergency response center, our users also have ability to notify friends or family of an alarm. During the alarm, each friend or family member on the contact list will receive a text notification.
