Smart SOS



Bringing the ultimate safety innovation to South Africa 

South Africa is a beautiful country with breathtaking scenery to explore. Unfortunately, it also has one of the highest crime rates in the world. We wanted to bring the nation an innovative, high-tech safety product with next-level features for added protection and peace of mind.


Introducing Plegium®, the world’s best smart pepper spray

Plegium® is a Swedish invention that was first launched at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas in January 2019. This innovative product is manufactured to the highest standards in Sweden and is considered to be the world’s best smart pepper spray.

During a time when gender-based violence and crime is escalating in South Africa, Plegium® comes at just the right time. Now we can protect our citizens by equipping them with a product that will make them feel safer and more in control when under threat. Read more about its unique features here.


Plegium®’s sophisticated technology, together with the potent pepper spray, shrill siren and bright, flashing LED lights, provides a vital layer of protection and gives much-needed peace of mind. Nothing like this has ever been available in South Africa as yet.
