Passively triggering an alarm
In addition to manually (actively) triggering an alarm, there are passive possibilities with the ‘lone worker’ and ‘unmonitored area’ functionality.
The Lone Worker functionality automatically sends an alarm with location finder functionality when the device or employee stops moving for a certain period of time (no movement). Of course, this function is equipped with a pre-alarm to enable the employee to prevent a false alarm.
This function can be used when entering hazardous areas or spaces, or in situations where employees are working out of sight for long periods of time. Within a freely adjustable number of minutes, the employee receives a notification asking to confirm that everything is in order. If the employee does not respond, the SmartApp will send an alarm notification with location details to a colleague or monitoring centre.
