How Horus-I Works
As the Horus-I app has been custom built in-house by the Horus Research and Development Team, we are able to create a travel security intelligence app that is adaptable to a range of different clients operating in a spectrum of sectors.
The two core elements of the app are the intelligence dissemination aspect and the monitoring capabilities –
24/7 INFORMATION NETWORK
At its core, the Horus-i App is an intelligence dissemination platform with the ability to send alerts on the latest news, global travel alerts and early warning notifications direct to the user’s phone, 24/7.
Our team of security researchers and WatchKeepers are trained to use the most up-to-date open-source intelligence research tools to identify and disseminate reliable and accurate alerts to the Horus-I user.
Users can scroll through every active alert via the ‘Active Alerts’ section in the menu or scrolling around the map on the dashboard.
‘Near-Me’ uses our precise monitoring technology to notify you of alerts in your immediate area including SMS messages in areas of poor phone signal.
Access to alerts in over 20 Incident categories in over 200 countries, these alerts can be tailored to the specific interests of clients.
built for practicality
Early testing of Horus-I highlighted the need for practicality. Therefore the Horus development team specifically built the app to use minimal battery and data usage and continue to operate in areas of weak signal.

REAL-TIME MONITORING AND SUPPORT FROM THE CONTROL ROOM TO GET YOU TO SAFETY
Unique to the Horus-I app, the ‘WatchMeClosely’ feature is designed to offer assistance in times where a traveller feels unsafe.
This is an enhanced check-in feature activated by pressing a single button on the dashboard, WatchMeClosely increases the number of location data points transmitted to the Control Room and alerts the WatchKeeper on-duty to make 1-to-1 contact to offer expert assistance to get the user to safety.
All activity made on the Horus-I app can be viewed and monitored from the centralised Control Panel – find out about how the Horus-I Control Panel works here.

expert advice at your fingertips
The Advice Center connects users with our security experts at the Horus Control Centre where they are available 24/7 to provide you with the necessary assistance.
In the case of an emergency, the telephone icon on the dashboard will directly connect you with the local emergency services number as well as send a notification to the Control Room that you require assistance.
We provide additional ‘Guardian Services’ for assistance in unfamiliar situations such as medical appointments or negotiating with real estate agents.
Keep Safe DURING COVID
The Horus-I travel security app utilises a real-time information network to deliver the latest coronavirus statistics and travel restrictions across the globe conveniently to your phone.
If your business has an existing app that would benefit from integrating the Horus security alerts, we offer a webhook plugin to receive Horus alerts as they happen.
