The app initiates a phone call to a designated number once activated so the recipient can listen to the situation and render assistance.
The phone vibrates once to confirm an alarm activation and once more to confirm that the alarm has been received by the server.
Employers have a duty to assess risks to lone workers and take steps to avoid or control risks where necessary. Atus Defender is the perfect solution for those who are vulnerable or at risk as it provides you or your staff with a simple to use app which is easy to install and use when assistance is required.
Atus Defender’s flexible cloud based design makes it the ideal solution for use as a lone worker alarm. The clear and simple design allows the user to activate the distress alarm on their smartphone in several ways, all of which instantly trigger the app to send their GPS location and ID to a specific service. This flexible approach allows the system to be tailored to each individual’s needs, whether that’s an Alarm Monitoring Centre (ARC), a co-worker or group of co-workers or an employer based security service, as well as automatically making a voice call to allow the details of the emergency to be heard. Using multiple transmission paths, data is also sent so even in the event of a poor GSM signal the alarm is likely to get through and assistance be provided.
Unique to our app are the individual indoor location beacons that allow users to be positively positioned within a building, even when there is no or little GPS satellite coverage. This distinctive feature allows Atus Defender to be used for both localised positioning whilst still providing all of the features required by BS8484.
