Skyguard's New Iphone App

1 Aug 2017

Today, Skyguard are set to launch an updated version of our lone working app for the iOS platform. Available for download, the new BS 8484:2016 certified application allows users to raise an alarm at the press of a button if they feel they are in danger.Now compatible with the wearable SmartButton accessory, an alert can be activated without even unlocking the phone’s keypad. The compact unit, which is only 1.3 inches in diameter can be subtly worn on a wristband, keychain, pendant or belt clip. This provides another way to get help, particularly useful in difficult circumstances when a user wants to get assistance discreetly.

The service is backed up by our Incident Management Centre who are on hand around the clock to manage emergency alarms and follow user’s personal escalation procedures.

Providing a Faster Police Response with URNs

Providing a Faster Police Response with URNs

Through the use of Unique Reference Numbers (URNs), security systems are able to escalate alarms directly to police forces and provide an immediate response – faster than that available to those dialing 999.URNs can be allocated to security systems such as Alarm Receiving Centres (ARCs) if they are compliant with requirements from the National Police Chiefs Council (NPCC). They give ARCs a direct link to police control rooms and enable a level 1 priority response which bypasses the 999 system. Vital time is saved using this approach as alarms have already been verified as genuine by the ARC. Details of end users and the incident will also be passed on by the ARC, so a response can be dispatched much quicker.
