ABOUT SKY ALERT
Sky Alert presents Safe Hub, an advanced security platform that protects people working alone. With pinpoint accuracy and lightning-fast response, Safe Hub is not just another 911 app. It’s all-around protection for lone workers. Using a discreet personal device the SOS Fob, our advanced App on a smartphone, or the SPOT X satellite device, Safe Hub connects users with a state-of-the-art Monitoring Response Center (MRC). At the MRC, highly trained operatives can provide immediate assistance directing the police or paramedics to your GPS location in the fastest time possible.
WHY CHOOSE SKY ALERT?
It’s a tough old world out there for lone workers. When working out of sight or earshot of their colleagues, lone workers face a particular set of risks. And there’s a huge variety of roles where people spend at least part of their working days alone. Utility workers may need to be up a ladder in a remote location. Home health workers may be subject to anti-social behavior from the people they’re caring for. And sales people often travel between meetings in cities and states with which they’re not familiar.
To protect them properly, employers need to have comprehensive systems in place. That’s just what Sky Alert offers. With our technology-led approach to personal safety, we cover every lone working scenario. We connect lone workers with a monitoring station which can alert the appropriate authorities. Our GPS tracking identifies the precise location, and we’ll stay on the call until the situation is resolved.
Sky Alert SOS Fob
The Sky Alert SOS Fob is a 4G personal security device that harnesses cutting-edge technologies. With Global Positioning System (GPS), a user’s location can be pinpointed to within 8.5 feet. Communications technologies allow users to speak directly to staff at our monitoring stations 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In-built motion and shock sensors ensure the device can detect a lack of movement or sudden impact, which may indicate a user needs help.
We’ve worked hard to choose an SOS Fob that’s super-practical. It’s discreet, durable, lightweight, and waterproof. Its battery has an extended life, and the device can be quickly and easily recharged. As it’s wearable using a variety of neat accessories, the SOS Fob can be carried wherever and whenever it’s needed.
Certain lone workers in specific job roles may be operating in remote areas. For times when cell signal is weak or intermittent, we offer a satellite phone solution for ensuring personal security. Sky Alert SPOT X provides 2-way satellite messaging so lone workers can stay connected wherever they find themselves.
The device provides powerful communication in a crisis and allows the Sky Alert monitoring stations to locate lone workers if the worst happens. Deploying GPS technology, the device automatically sends the user’s location information to the monitoring station at 10-minute intervals.
The user can easily trigger a Red Alert by pushing the prominent SOS button. Once connected to the monitoring station, agents will follow agreed escalation processes to get the lone worker the help that they need.
