Pangaea Services, Inc. announced the launch of its crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo on Tuesday (July 22nd) for its brand new product, The Defender. The device deters a prospective criminal with an array of self-defense features, including a 24/7 monitoring service, camera, strobing flash, siren, and the highest concentration of pepper spray available to law-enforcement. Originally seeking $100,000, The Defender raised $107,107 within 24 hours.
The Defender wants to provide confidence and peace of mind, by taking crime prevention to the next level.This system utilizes “smart” technology and a hand-held device that is small enough to hang from your keychain. The Defender wants to make thugsthink twice.
According to the campaign page -here’s how it works: The Defender’s smart phone app connects via Bluetooth with The Defender device. The Defender features a camera, oscillating flash, siren and pepper spray all-in-one and connects with the 24/7 alert monitoring service through the smart phone app. The Defender goes into action instantaneously with one button.
The Defender snaps a photo of the attacker, while the siren sounds to attract attention and the high-strength pepper spray leaves them immobilized. A message is sent directly to monitoring agents. Users control the information shared from within the app included a user profile with photo, medical conditions, and any relevant safety concerns that users will want to share with authorities.
Marketing Director of Pangaea Services, Inc., Ryan McManus, stated, “The Defender will change the way we think about personal safety. We unconsciously ensure our safety every day and we never think twice about locking our doors or snapping a seat belt in-place. The Defender on your key chain provides a revolutionary step forward by empowering the user. Whether for yourself or someone you care about, The Defender just makes sense.”
McManus added, “The Defender goes into action with one push of a button. Internet-connected devices are enhancing all aspects of our lives and we have brought this connectivity to personal safety. The Defender sets a new standard in self-defense and we are excited to be launching on Indiegogo.”
The Defender is expected to be ready for manufacturing and tooling after a 45-day crowdfunding campaign on IndieGogo.
