Malama Pono | We are dedicated to providing and promoting a safe and secure campus, and serving our community with aloha.
It is principally designed for traveling on the UH Mānoa campus and where UH Mānoa Department of Public Safety patrols. If the app is used off‐campus, DPS officers are unable to respond in the event of an expired timer.
A Safety Timer session is a period of time during which you choose to make your status and location available to any number of your guardians. With the Safety Timer, your status and location are available to those you trust. Set it up when you are heading somewhere unfamiliar, meeting with someone you don't know, or any other time you would like someone to check in with you. If the timer runs out and the Safety Timer session expires the app will start notifying the guardian(s) you have selected as part of the Safety Timer session.
To set up a Safety Timer session:
During the Safety Timer session:
Your guardians can check in on you at any point during an active Safety Timer session and you can update your status as many times as you choose. Let your guardians know where you are and what you are doing. During a Safety Timer session you'll receive several reminders to deactivate the timer by entering your PIN as the timer runs down. Remember to deactivate the session once you are safe.
Duress Alarm during Safety Timer session:
In the unlikely event you are coerced into deactivating your Safety Timer session, instead of entering your regular PIN you can enter a Duress PIN which will immediately put your session into Alert status and will contact the UH Mānoa Department of Public Safety (DPS). Your Duress PIN is your PIN number plus one, e.g., if your PIN is 1234 your Duress PIN is 1235.
A Guardian is someone you trust to be notified with key information when you are in trouble. Friends, family members, or other people you trust to look out for you can be guardians. You invite these guardians via your phone's Contacts. Each guardian you invite will have to download the Mānoa Guardian app and register. Once they have the app and accept your invitation to be your guardian you can initiate Safety Timer sessions during which your guardians will be alerted to your status and location. Remember, UH Mānoa DPS will always show up on the Mānoa Guardian as your default guardian contact.
To add guardians to your Guardians list:
Your Smart911 profile is automatically created when you register for Mānoa Guardian as a member of the UH Mānoa community. You must have a hawaii.edu or associated UH Mānoa login to use the UH Mānoa version of the Guardian app. Smart911 is a national service that provides your profile data to supported 9‐1‐1 centers. Your profile is kept private and only displayed in the event that you make an emergency call or text a tip to UH Mānoa DPS. In the profile you can provide descriptions and medical information that would help DPS to respond quickly.
You can update your Smart911 profile either through a web browser or through the Mānoa Guardian app:
