What Happens When I Activate an SOS?

  • When our emergency response coordination partner receives your SOS alert, they’ll know the GPS coordinates of your ZOLEO device. They will confirm your alert and contact the appropriate authorities to dispatch help. With progressive SOS from ZOLEO, you’ll also receive step-by-step status updates throughout the incident via the ZOLEO app.
  • Using the ZOLEO app, you’ll be able to message back and forth with emergency response coordination partner to exchange updates until your emergency has been resolved.
  • Even if you’re using the ZOLEO communicator on its own, without the app, you’ll get confirmation that your SOS message was received (via the LEDs on the device). How’s that for peace of mind?

What If I Activate an SOS by Mistake?

The built-in SOS button on the ZOLEO device is covered to prevent false alarms, but if you press it by mistake, or if your situation is no longer an emergency, you can cancel the SOS by pressing and holding the SOS button for five (5) seconds. This will let our response coordination partner know you have cancelled the SOS alert and they will cancel the emergency on your behalf.
