The device links directly to Skyguard’s Incident Management Centre at the simple touch of a button. On activation, dedicated 24/7 emergency support is available from a team of Controllers who can communicate directly with users via the device. If further assistance is required, Skyguard follow bespoke escalation procedures and can bypass 999 to provide a priority police response.
If a user is unable to manually raise an alarm, the Mandown variant features a fall sensor which can automatically trigger an alert. MicroSOS’s A-GPS then allows Skyguard to trace the user’s location to within metres, displaying information on a map which is accessible via Skyguard’s online Customer Service Centre (CSC). The CSC portal also allows organisations to manage their services easily and offers a number of advanced monitoring and reporting options.
The pocket-sized device has the appearance of a USB stick can be worn in a number of different ways for convenience and discreetness, including around the neck on a lanyard or fastened to the back ID badge. For increased flexibility MicroSOS can also be clipped onto a belt in a holster or attached to a set of keys.
As a durable lone working solution, MicroSOS is IP67 rated, meaning the device is fully protected against dust particles and waterproof. The device is designed to withstand harsh conditions, whilst also being inconspicuous, making it suitable for those working in a variety of industries from manufacturing to healthcare.
Launched by Skyguard in October 2018, the MicroSOS is the pinnacle of years of industry experience and product development, representing the next generation of personal safety alarms.
