Safe Shores Monitoring has launched its Companion app that transforms a normal smartphone into a lone-worker protection device with unrivalled safety features as part of an £800,000 investment into its business.
Companion is a cross-platform, IoT-enabled lone worker application, connected to Safe Shores Monitoring’s ‘Police Preferred Specification’ Archangel cloud to deliver a contextually-aware, intelligence-driven service.
Safe Shores Monitoring said that Companion delivers the most advanced ‘man-down’ detection system available by harnessing the array of sensors already available within smartphones and combining sensor data with advanced algorithms to validate genuine situations of jeopardy. The app also instantly pairs with the smallest Bluetooth SOS button on the market.
Tom Morton, CEO, Safe Shores Monitoring, said, “Our Companion App has been developed by our in-house developers to put the most effective lone-worker safety device in the hands of any employee who has a smartphone, plus Companion has features that aren’t available anywhere else on the market.”
The Safe Shores Monitoring’s system can be connected to the company’s state-of-the-art alarm receiving centre (ARC) that operates 24/7/365. The ARC and the Companion app are certified to the highest industry standards, which means it can bypass the 999 system to deliver priority access to police, fire and ambulance control rooms across the UK.
