One or Two-Way Audio
The MySOS personal safety device comes equipped with two-way audio, which allows the Controller to talk to and reassure the user when the alarm is activated, if safe to do so. The microphone is sensitive up to 2 metres and the loudspeaker is audible up to 2 metres.
Mobile Phone Position Request
A feature unique to Skyguard’s MySOS allows you to request the device’s position by simply sending it an SMS text message. A reply with a web link to a map with the device’s position will be sent, which can be viewed on an internet-enabled mobile phone or computer.
On activating the SOS alarm button, the MySOS personal alarm sends its location to Skyguard’s IMC. An MTK Chipset, accurate to less than 10 metres in ideal conditions is used so our Controllers will know exactly where the alarm is coming from. A two-way voice call is then initiated* with the Skyguard Controller who will follow the personalised emergency procedures you provided us, and if appropriate, they will summon the emergency services or our own National Response Service and contact your employer.
*Our Controllers will listen in to find out what is happening in the user’s vicinity. If it’s safe to speak, they’ll do so. If it’s not safe to speak, don’t worry… you don’t need to say a word – we’ll send assistance if appropriate.
The MySOS features a button which can be programmed with a phone number of your choosing. This allows the user to call a nominated contact, using the device as a mobile phone.
BS 8484:2016 Certification
MySOS is fully BS 8484:2016 compliant and certified by external audit through the National Security Inspectorate (NSI).
The Status LEDs display information showing you exactly what the device is doing. Indicators include GPS availability, GSM connection and signal strength. The device will bleep when the battery is low and the battery LED will triple flash as an indication.
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.
