ila Security Review & Giveaway


ila Security was launched in 2008, a joint collaboration with global communications agency BBH, whose clients include Audi, British Airways and Lynx/Axe. Its creation addresses what was a significant gap in the global market in the area of stylish female safety and personal security accessories.

A 2010 YouGov/Glamour magazine survey reveals that 68% of women are seriously concerned about their personal safety – and the same women also want to look stylish and fashionable. In response to this need, ila Security provides a must-have range of accessories that are chic, feminine and versatile.

Because when it comes to safety and style, there shouldn’t have to be a compromise.

For my review, ila Security sent me the ILA DUSK and ILA PEBBLE personal alarms. Both of these products are designed to protect woman by helping to ward off predators,and alerting those around if you happen to find your self in a threatening situation. They are very discreet and at first glance no one would ever know that they were personal alarms.

The ila Dusk can be clipped onto your handbag or it can worn on you key ring, I prefer to have it clipped to my handbag. All you need to do to activate the alarm is pull the chain. Once you pull the chain a very LOUD (130Db) female scream will emerge. If by any chance you happen to accidentally pull the chain and activate the alarm, all you need to do is put the pin back in. Hopefully this never happens because it will definitely draw attention, but I do not really see this happening accidentally as it’s designed well. The ila Dusk is available in 6 different designs.

ila Pebble is a keyring alarm. Unlike the ila Dusk, the ila Pebble sounds more like a car alarm. It is also 130Db loud and is activated when you push the silver button in the centre and pull the top portion. I think this is great for when you’ll be walking alone at night or walking through dark parking lots to your car. I really like the fact that this attaches to keys because I know it will always be by my side as I almost always have my keys with me when I’m out. The ila Pebble is available in 2 different designs.

Ila Security products offer you a sense of self-assurance and security. While I hope to never have to use it, I feel a bit safer having it with me. Better safe than sorry, right? I highly recommend these products!

Here are some demo videos of the ila Dusk and ila Pebble:
