Lone Worker App
Our lone worker app is packed with high-tech features and can quickly turn a smartphone or tablet into an effective personal safety device.
Available across all major operating systems, the app can process Red Alert calls, check in and out of meetings, utilises GPS, and provides Man Down assistance (Android only).
A designated button will immediately open an audio channel to the ARC.
Users connect to the system to describe location, activity and time of completion.
The device can be located by an authorised colleague or via the ARC.
A Man Down alarm can be created through immobilisation (Android only).
Our lone worker app is fully compatible with our monitoring software, Vision. This intuitive, online portal will help you monitor and review how employees interact with their apps.
