Guardian24 has just released an iPhone app and an updated Android app for its lone worker solutions. The iPhone App is available from Apple’s App Store and the Android version is available from Guardian24’s website. Both versions allow an iPhone or Android user to take advantage of the full capabilities of Guardian24 on their device.
Henry Woods, CEO, Guardian 24, said, “Some users may prefer a simple mobile phone, others may want to use a smartphone while others may prefer to use none of these but instead to carry an alarm device. Guardian 24 allows all of these preferences to be available, and mixed, within one overall system.
“In addition, Guardian 24 also uniquely allows each end-user to have the service available to them on two devices in recognition of the growing trend to have both a work and personal device.”
With the Guardian 24 service, users can schedule their activities and timings. If the user ‘overstays’ an appointment, Guardian 24 will contact them to confirm all is well. Guardian 24 will escalate an ‘alarm’ if user welfare cannot be confirmed. Dedicated, specialist alarm monitoring staff, working on behalf of the user’s organisation, can determine the nature of the user’s situation through location tracking and remote audio streaming. Customisable rules control the flow of alarms and can involve the notification of the emergency response services or other relevant responders.
