08/06/2009 Intelligent Personal Attack Alarms
People working in the Jewellery Trade will find the above sites of interest. We discovered them recently because a client of GJIS Limited was singing their praises whilst he went about his day to day business with the added comfort and security of knowing that he had a guardian angel watching over him and ability to summon help descreetly if required.
Skyguard offer ability for users to activate a personal safety device. An alarm is sent (via mobile phone technology) to their professional controllers at their 24/7 purpose-built Incident Management Centre. As a registered user with a profile that is known to them they will know who you are immediately if you activate the device. Because your device is GPS enabled, they will also know exactly where you are and to be in a position to listen, (they can also talk to you to advise and reassure if it is safe to do so), evaluate and react.
They say that the careful selection of their controllers, their experience, and the endless training they undergo now comes into action and will enable them to assess the situation quickly and expertly. They will then take action based on their assessment. Their decision will be in keeping with your instructions (detailed by you when you signed up for their service): they can summon and guide the relevant emergency service to you, back them up with their own, trained National Response Service personnel if required, or contact anyone designated by you.
They can also record what's happening remotely - vital should the incident go to litigation.
