This is the third in a six-part series which will showcase the projects built by the Top 6 teams of the #SmartCities Hackathon. The Smart Cities hack was a two event hackathon organized by Hackmakers dedicated to finding innovative solutions to generate more awareness, stronger communications and quicker responses for tomorrow’s smart cities.
Safe Cities requires an understanding of the need for security to evolve from a reactive to a proactive approach, with integrated response. The Safe Cities Challenge category can cover solutions that help cities to manage public security issues as a city population and urbanisation grows.

Team Sheldonopolis came up with a fantastic solution in order to leverage data to proactively minimize criminal offences by using affordable digital assistance.
The Guardian gadget is an IoT enabled technology that can be used as a wearable and operated by a small communication device such as a mobile phone. In case of any unexpected foot tapping pattern, an alert message is triggered from the app and an SOS is sent to the relatives or the emergency services.
Alerts from this app also make citizens aware by cautioning them if they’re entering a high crime alert zone.
