Protect Lone Workers with Smartphone Safety Apps

Skyguard are pleased to announce the latest version of our BS 8484:2016 Certified lone worker protection app and the launch of SmartButton for Android users.

The Skyguard app is an innovative software application that turns a smartphone into a fully functional personal safety device, with access to our dedicated 24/7 Incident Management Centre (IMC). The new and improved version of the app provides users with a multitude of ways to seek assistance, activating an alarm via the app itself or using the SmartButton device.

The SmartButton is a small wearable device now available for both Windows Phone and Android users. It works by overriding the phone’s keypad lock so an alarm can be raised discreetly at the touch of a button in an emergency.

Fast and effective transmission of alarms is provided by the latest Bluetooth and GPRS technology. The location of the device can also be logged so it is available to our Controllers, giving them information on your whereabouts if need be.

At only 1.3 inches in diameter the button is lightweight and can be easily carried on a keychain, pendant, belt clip or wristband. There’s also no need to worry about charging your SmartButton as this is powered by an easy to replace battery which can provide up to one year’s usage.

If you would like to see our new mobile app and SmartButton in action, Skyguard would be delighted to provide you with a working demonstration.

You can also request a free 30-day trial, please get in touch with us for more information.
