PANIC ALARM: This will activate the alarm on the operations monitoring platform when pressed, also triggering SMS and email alert notifications to staff. The app will report at 15-second intervals when in Panic Alarm mode. The app is interchangeable between employees to reduce costs for rotating employees.
2-WAY TEXT MESSAGING: Between the operations platform and app. Ops Room can ‘broadcast’ security updates from the operations platform to all users. Panic alarm and messaging will work, even if tracking is switched off.
CHECK-IN: Staff can send one-off Check-in position report, with text message.
