Simple Alarm Activation
The alarm is activated by simply holding down the large central "SOS" button for a few seconds. To indicate when an SOS alarm is initiated, the device will vibrate discretely and again to confirm it has connected to the IMC.
24 Hour Emergency Response
Using palm-sized personal safety alarms, specifically and exclusively developed by Skyguard, fitted with the latest mobile phone and GPS technology, a call for help is just one button away. Each of our alarms is fully certified and audited to BS 8484:2016 (code of practice for the provision of lone worker devices) and accredited to the Association of Chief Police Officer’s (ACPO) coveted ‘Secured by Design’ accolade.
Optional position reports will record the personal safety device’s location at a specific date and time and can be sent automatically at regular intervals or manually whenever needed, at the touch of a button. The user’s location can be viewed on an online map at Skyguard’s secure Customer Service Centre portal.
Weighing only 43 grams, the compact and lightweight design of the MySOS personal safety device makes it convenient to use in everyday situations. It can be worn around the neck as a pendant, attached to a keyring, a belt using the optional holster accessory or even an identity badge holder. Find more about the accessories.
Voice Memo (Amber Alert)
This feature enables you to leave voice messages specific to your situation, such as who you are meeting and how long you’ll expect to be, which could provide vital additional information in an emergency. The message is immediately available to Skyguard Controllers if an alarm is activated.
All calls and actions are digitally recorded on secure servers within our IMC, should they be needed as legal evidence. Skyguard’s audio recordings have led to numerous successful prosecutions.
Secured by Design Certification
The MySOS is one of the few devices in the industry to be certified by “Secured by Design”; an initiative which guarantees national police approval of a product through meeting the highest security standards in its design.
Customer Service Centre
Individual and Administrator access to our online Customer Service Centre (CSC), enables the user or Account Administrator to securely update and maintain your account details and personal information, in real-time, 24/7. This means the information is immediately available to Controllers if the alarm is activated. The CSC also allows you to create bespoke alarm escalation procedures depending on your organisation’s specific requirements. Read more about the Customer Service Centre.
