Pepper Spray

This high-potency, multi-shot Plegium® Smart Pepper Spray has a 3 metre range that effectively stops an attacker in his tracks. The spray causes extreme eye pain and temporary blindness – giving you space and time to escape. There are multiple shots but this depends on the intensity of the spray. 



A 130 dB siren sounds the second a Plegium® Smart Pepper Spray is fired. This decibel level is greater than most standalone personal alarms and is designed to distract the attacker and attract attention to the fact that you are at risk.


Strobe LEDs

Assaults often happen in poorly-lit areas, which is why 3 x LED strobe-effect lights flare up the instant you fire your Plegium® Smart Pepper Spray. This illumination helps you aim for the attacker’s eyes while the 19 Hz strobe lighting-effect disorientates him.


Location Text Messages

Get help, in an instant. The moment you fire your Plegium® Smart Pepper Spray, the FREE Plegium® App automatically sends a text message with a Google Maps link of your location to the emergency contacts you’ve pre-loaded onto the App.


Phone Calls

When you fire Plegium® Smart Pepper Spray, the Plegium® App places an automated phone call to your emergency contacts to let them know you’re in danger and that a text message marking your location has been sent.


Battery Life

A battery life that can save your life. The Plegium® Smart Pepper Spray has a 4-year no-charge battery life. NB: Battery life and warranty are 4 years from date of manufacture on packaging and device.

Internationally Patented

Highly functional and pleasing in design, the internationally-patented Plegium® Smart Pepper Spray is one of the most attractive safety products available.


Flip Top and Sensory Sight

To avoid accidental triggering, the Plegium® Smart Pepper Spray has a spring-loaded flip-top safety lid and its trigger ridge indicates the direction of the spray nozzle. By feeling this ridge with your thumb, your hand automatically points in the direction of the stream to better focus your aim.  



To fire: slip your thumb under the flip-top lid and press on the centre of the trigger. 

To aim: Spray the attacker across the eyes and then concentrate on the nose and mouth.

The spray will shoot from the nozzle, the siren and LEDs will activate and the App will send a location text message and an automatic phone call to your emergency contacts.

To stop firing: release the trigger. The spray will cease but the siren and strobe LEDs will stay active. This pepper spray has been manufactured so that it is not easy for the attacker to switch it off. To deactivate these, use a pointed object such as a paperclip or pen tip to lift the lever marked TEST, located on the side of the unit.

Note: Keep your phone’s Bluetooth on and the Plegium® App on in the background. Location text messages and phone calls rely on data coverage. Cellphone must be in close proximity to pepper spray for alerts to be relayed. The pepper spray must not be stored in or exposed to heat above 50°C, for example in a hot car. It should also not be stored or exposed to cold lower than 0°C


Test Button

As with all safety equipment, it is advisable to test your Plegium® Smart Pepper Spray from time to time. You can test the location text messages, phone calls, siren and strobe LEDs without firing. Simply press down the TEST lever. To turn off the siren and the strobe LEDs simply lift the lever back up.

All batteries included: Bluetooth 1 x CR2450, replaceable Siren 4x LR44, built-in LEDs, 4x LR41, built-in. Extreme use can reduce battery life.
