But what happens if you can’t easily or discreetly access your phone? Time is of the essence in an emergency and that’s why we’ve introduced Skyguard SmartButton – a BS 8484:2016 certified personal emergency alert accessory for your Windows and Android Smartphones. The 10p sized wearable button allows users to raise the alarm to Skyguard at just a simple press.
Using Bluetooth Smart technology, the button instantly activates the application and raises the alarm to our dedicated 24/7 Incident Management Centre.
With GPS positioning, two-way audio and personalised information immediately available to our expert Controllers, help is never far away.
As small as a 10 pence coin, it’s designed to be compact enough to wear around the neck, on a wristwatch or keychain. The SmartButton is just over an inch in size and weighs less than an ounce.
There’s no additional monthly fees to using the SmartButton – your standard Skyguard for Smartphone subscription will cover all the bases.*
The alarm is activated by simply pressing the button for a few seconds. The button overrides the handset’s keypad lock allowing you to activate quickly and easily during an emergency.
Software runs in the background allowing you to use the other functions of your handset at the same time.
Utilises Bluetooth and GPRS technology to provide fast and effective alarm transmission.
Utilises GPS technology to provide our Controllers with accurate user location during an alarm.
The button has up to one year of battery life and powered by a standard CR2032 watch battery. The battery is removable and replaceable by the user.
Phone’s 2-way audio allows our Controllers to communicate with and reassure the user in an emergency.
Wearable in the shower or exposed to the elements, the button is waterproof to a depth of 1m (3.3ft) for 30 minutes.
At only 1.3 inches in diameter, the button can be comfortably carried in a number of ways including on a wristband, pendant, versatile clip or attached to a keychain.
Our 24/7 purpose-built Incident Management Centre, accredited to BS 8484:2016 and BS 5979 (Cat II), will immediately respond to alarm activations and follow your bespoke escalation procedures.
