Lone Worker Safety - Countdown Alarm

The countdown alarm is a crucial feature in personal safety devices, particularly for lone workers, in situations where manual activation may not be possible. Here’s how it works:

  1. Automatic Activation: The GPS device activates a count down timer when the user presses a button allocated for this purpose. If the user fails to deactivate it within a certain time frame, typically between 60 – 90 minutes, an alert will activate.

  2. Monitoring Center Notification: Once triggered, the system sends a notification to the 24-hour monitoring centre.

  3. GPS Location: With built-in GPS tracking, the monitoring centre receives the user’s current location when the alert is triggered, or their last known location if GPS coverage is weak.

  4. Timely Response: In cases where the user is unable to activate the alert manually, such as during a medical emergency or an attack, the countdown alarm in the GPS system ensures that help is summoned promptly.

  5. Prevents False Alarms: The system adds an extra layer of security by sending alerts only when necessary. If the user deactivates the alert within the specified time frame, no further action is taken, preventing false alarms.

  6. Peace of Mind: Knowing that an alert will be sent automatically provides peace of mind to the user and their loved ones, especially in high-risk situations like domestic abuse or when traveling alone in unfamiliar areas.

  7. Customizable Settings: Users can request customization of the device, including the duration of the delay before the alert is triggered, to better suit their needs.

Overall, the lone worker countdown alarm system enhances the effectiveness of your personal safety device, by ensuring timely assistance and preventing false alarms, ultimately providing greater security and peace of mind.
