Home Elephant states that it is "the world's first social media platform for neighborhoods." The app is made for iPhone and offers people a way to communicate with their neighbors and keep their street safe.

Home Elephant has different types of alerts that users can write or react to such as Neighborhood Watch Alerts, Crime reports, Notices and Lost & Found Alerts. Situations from missing pets to creepy guys in vans can be written about and sent out to neighbors in the area.

Home Elephant has created a short video to show users how the app can be used. It features a person dressed up in a dog costume who has stolen a computer. A woman out jogging notices and sends an alert out to her neighbors that also shows where she was standing when the incident occurred.
