GEOS IERCC 24/7 Monitoring

In an emergency, you can rest assured that we’ve got your back. If you activate an SOS alert using the ZOLEO device or app, our industry-leading emergency monitoring and response partner, GEOS, is standing watch 24/7. Where ever you are in the world, GEOS is there*.

Experienced in emergency response coordination, the team at GEOS has managed more than 50,000 incidents in 170 countries*, and coordinated over 9000 emergency responses — you’ll be in good hands.

  • When GEOS receives your SOS alert, they’ll know the GPS coordinates of your ZOLEO communicator. They’ll contact the appropriate emergency response authorities for your location, and reach out to the emergency contacts you designated when creating your ZOLEO account.
  • Using the ZOLEO App, you’ll also be able to message back and forth with GEOS to exchange updates, until your emergency situation has been resolved. Two-way SOS simply isn’t offered by one-way communicators, PLBs and EPIRBs.
  • 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?

How to Cancel SOS on ZOLEO

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 GEOS know you’ve cancelled the SOS alert and they will cancel the emergency on your behalf.
