Wyze teams with Noonlight to offer smart home users 24/7 monitoring
April 13, 2021

You may be aware of Noonlight’s mobile app that offers users safety features for when they’re out on the town, including the ability to get help if you feel like you’re in danger. The company also works to facilitate security monitoring for some IoT products, Wyze being the latest on the list.

According to Wyze, its customers can sign up for 24/7 monitoring for $4.99/month. With this service, Wyze device owners can be connected with local law enforcement and Noonlight’s agents when, for example, a motion sensor is triggered.

"Expanding our partnership with Noonlight has allowed us to extend our 24/7 smart home monitoring services to our customers, at a fraction of the cost of most competitors. We are inspired by Noonlight’s vision for the service, understanding of the market, technical implementations and looking forward to seeing how we can deepen the layer of home security to our customers."

The Wyze Home Monitoring offers 24/7 monitoring through Noonlight that will not only sound off alarms when sensors are tripped, but monitoring service officials will also have emergency responders on standby for emergency situations. Considering that the service cost is $5 per month or $60 annually, it undercuts most of the other home security systems out there.

The monitoring plan will cost $60 per year (or $5/month) and is powered by security provider Noonlight, the same company that responds when you tap the emergency button on the Wyze Cam. When an intruder or other emergency is detected by an armed sensor, you're connected to a dispatcher that can route data to local 911 call centers and first responders as needed.

The service promises text communication with a Noonlight agent within 5 seconds of a trigger, and, if you don't respond within 30 seconds, a phone call. Local first responders are dispatched if you confirm you need help or are unable to respond.

If the subscriber can’t be reached, Noonlight will automatically summon an emergency response to the subscriber’s home.

Match Group, the dating app giant and parent company to Match, Tinder, OkCupid, Plenty of Fish and several other dating apps, announced this morning it has invested in and partnered with connected safety platform Noonlight to roll out a series of new safety features to its suite of dating apps. The tools include those for emergency assistance, location tracking, photo verification and an updated in-app Safety Center.

Integrating this kind of technology, in addition to the other safety standards that Match Group is implementing across our brands, is a necessary step in dating innovation."

To offer the service, Tinder parent company Match Group Inc. is taking a stake and board seat in an app called Noonlight that tracks the location of users and notifies authorities in the event of safety concerns. When Tinder launches the Noonlight tool, users will be able to add a badge to their dating profiles.

Ahead of dates, users will be able to log information such as the time and details about the other person. Then if they trigger an alert, Noonlight can share the information, along with the user’s real-time location, with authorities.

“I liken this to the lawn sign from a security system. It tells people I am protected, and that is a deterrent.”

Tinder App to Add Panic Button For Extremely Bad Dates
Tinder App to Add Panic Button For Extremely Bad Dates
January 23, 2020

Tinder is introducing new safety features, including a panic button, to better protect users if a date starts to turn dangerous. The new features are expected to arrive at the end of January and they will be provided by the security app Noonlight, which Tinder’s parent company, Match Group, recently purchased a stake in. The same features will appear on Match Group’s other dating apps, like OKCupid and PlentyOfFish, in the coming months.

The Noonlight features on Tinder will start with offering a profile badge, which Tinder CEO Elie Seidman compared to a lawn sign for a security system. Users will also be able to log certain details about their dates, such as the time, location and any information about the other person, which Noonlight will then share with authorities if the alarm is triggered.

“You should run a dating business as if you are a mom. I think a lot about safety, especially on our platforms, and what we can do to curtail bad behavior. There are a lot of things we tell users to do. But if we can provide tools on top of that, we should do that as well.”

Yi Technology and Noonlight Launch 24/7 Emergency Service Feature
Yi Technology and Noonlight Launch 24/7 Emergency Service Feature
June 28, 2019

Yi Technology and Noonlight have officially announced their partnership today with a new product that aims to deliver dispatch emergency services to the users’ homes seamlessly, with just the simple tap of a button. If both these names ring a bell, that’s because we’ve talked about them before – Noonlight is a connected safety technology company that has collaborated, among others, with Axon for the release of the TASER Pulse+, a self-defense device for civilian use that alerts the emergency services without the users having to dial 911, text or even talk.

Yi’s motion alerts and live video feeds will all come equipped with the option of using the Noonlight certified emergency dispatchers who can speak to the local safety agencies and first responders as well as coordinate them as needed, on the customer’s behalf.

“Partnering with Noonlight to offer 24/7 Emergency Response greatly enhances the level of protection and comfort our products extend to our customers.”
-Sean Da, CEO of Yi
This new weapon alerts police as soon as it’s fired
This new weapon alerts police as soon as it’s fired
November 21, 2018

In the heart of an emergency, when the body’s fight-or-flight response is fully activated, calling the police is often an afterthought. That’s exactly what customers told Axon when the company — which makes Tasers for self-defense and law enforcement — asked for feedback from people who had used their products. Its solution: a new Taser that automatically alerts authorities as soon as the weapon is fired.

To make that possible, Axon has partnered with Noonlight, a company that makes an app that automatically connects people with emergency services. To connect users with police, the Taser is always paired with Noonlight’s app. When the trigger on the Taser Pulse+ is pulled, a beacon on the device communicates with the app, which alerts authorities that a likely emergency is unfolding. Using information from the app, including GPS, responding authorities have access to the user’s identification and location, even when someone is fleeing the scene of the incident.

“When you’re under stress and your focus narrows to getting away from someone, then small details like picking up the phone and calling 911 can escape you. We wanted to create a device that doesn’t require people to be in the physical mental state to remember that last step.”
-Annie Pratt, Director of Consumer Products at Axon

November 16, 2018

Consumer users of the new TASER Pulse+ will be able to alert emergency services automatically, thanks to Bluetooth plugin technology from a partnership with Noonlight, according to an announcement this week from TASER Self-Defense, the consumer division of Axon. When a TASER Pulse+ is deployed while the emergency-response setting is activated, the TASER device uses Bluetooth to activate the Noonlight application, automatically notifies law enforcement that an emergency situation exists and provides the user’s location, based on location technology found in an Android or iOS device.

Noonlight uses its proprietary dispatching platform that interfaces with all U.S. public-safety answering points (PSAPs) to notify 911 personnel of incidents. The PSAP does not need to have its infrastructure migrating toward next-generation 911 (NG911) to receive the rich data information about an incident from Noonlight.

“Self-defense situations can be scary and overwhelming for victims. We want our customers to focus on one thing only: Getting to safety. With the TASER Pulse+, customers just need to aim, pull the trigger, and run knowing that help is on the way.”
-Annie Pratt, Director of Consumer Products at Axon

If you're in a dangerous-enough situation to fire a stun gun, you probably want help as soon as possible. Axon certainly thinks so, at least -- it's launching an upgraded version of the the Taser Pulse, Pulse+, that contacts police when you fire the weapon. Load an app from Noonlight on your phone and the new Taser can dispatch authorities to your location and give you the opportunity to speak to 911 if it's safe. Axon is betting the time savings will be vital in moments when you're either still in danger or are too shaken to make a call.

October 2, 2018

As of last week, Noonlight — an app designed to connect people with rescue services — began using an algorithm that taps into a smartphone’s sensors, allowing the platform to measure and detect minuscule changes in the user’s location, motion and force.

If the sensors detect a sudden change in motion and force indicating that the user has been involved in an accident, the app alerts 911 without the user’s prompting.

A new feature on the personal-safety app Noonlight aims to help victims of car crashes and other accidents by automatically alerting emergency services the moment an accident happens. Noonlight added its "automatic crash detection and response" feature last week, so those who get in accidents when other people aren't around to help can get emergency care as soon as possible. The app uses sensors on your smartphone to pick up changes in your location, motion, and force of movement to detect a crash or other physical accident.

Carmakers, like BMW, Toyota, and Ford, have had similar functions (i.e., OnStar) built into some vehicles for years, but Noonlight is the first app to provide access to such a feature on your phone.

September 27, 2018

There’s a need for tech that puts victims of crashes in touch with emergency responders, and connected safety platform Noonlight announced such tech today: Automatic Crash Response.

Automatic Crash Response, a new feature of the Noonlight app for mobile devices (Android and iOS), leverages algorithms and phone sensor data (from the GPS, accelerometer, and gyroscope) to monitor for signs of a crash, such as a sudden change in speed. When a potential crash is detected, the app automatically sends Noonlight profile data — including medical information — and location information to first responders, who check in via text and phone call. A four-digit PIN cancels the request, but Automatic Crash Response can be configured to trigger automatically even when the app is closed.

There are plenty of wearables out there meant specifically to help those in an emergency, whether it’s a phone case or a piece of jewelry that have built-in panic buttons. But rather than having to carry around an extra accessory, safety platform Noonlight is making it even easier — by building the feature into your smartwatch.

Powering Fossil’s panic mode is Noonlight’s already existent technology. Formerly known as SafeTrek, Noonlight originally started out as a mobile app that alerts its own certified dispatchers whenever you’re in danger. The technology has since then been integrated into Amazon Alexa, Google Home, Canary and more.

“Fossil smartwatches with Noonlight is a chance to live beyond the limitations of day-to-day anxieties like home deliveries, evening runs, or meeting strangers. Working with Fossil means our connected safety platform can comfort and protect even more independent, adventurous men and women at home and on the go.”
