Concerned father forks out $30,000 creating phone app after home invasion
A father has forked out $30,000 to create an app in the hope of keeping Melburnians safe in their homes.
It comes after his daughter managed to flee her house during a home invasion.
Robert Scollo is behind the app – called ‘Neighbourhood Help’ – and explained it to Neil Mitchell on Wednesday.
“There’s two buttons on the app,” Mr Scollo said.
“One is for a critical emergency – a fire, a break-in, an intruder.
“The other is for a medical emergency – if you’re injured or sick.
“Your neighbours are notified instantly.”
It costs $1.99.
“I didn’t do it for the money, I did it for my daughter,” he said.
