Viuho is a satellite connection device that enables you to be always connected, in touch, and safe, wherever you are.

Always safe

The main objective of viuhoGEO is to help you when you need it most. It connects you by satellite wherever you are and, at the touch of a button, it can activate SOS alerts.

Safety for you, peace of mind for those you love.

Viuho makes people feel safe wherever they are. The satellite communication device is an emergency help button for everyone with an exploring and adventurous mindset.
Especially designed for situations where there is no mobile coverage, in extreme outdoor situations. This could be on a hike through the Sumatran jungle, sailing the Pacific Ocean, close to the south pole or just in your backyard.

Designed to last

Stimulo acts as a long-term partner, taking care of the product design side of the project. Needing to function in a harsh outdoor environment, the casing needed to be both beautiful to look at and be rugged.

We chose for a double injected plastic base made out of a combination of an abs plastic and thermoplastic rubber to reach for an IP67 watertight case which can endure the toughest situations. Special attention has been given to the texture of the rear rubber case, which has been inspired on the contour lines you can find on a topographical map which indicate slopes and gives an extra visual and tactile aspect.

Viuho will always be able to help you. The device has a dual function, firstly it works as a satellite modem for your smartphone which allows you to communicate through messaging without the need of mobile coverage.

Secondly Viuho is equipped with an emergency button to send SOS alerts wherever you are. Share your exact location coordinates together with your personal information through a satellite connection.
