What differentiates “Personal Alarm” from similar solutions?:
"Personal Alarm" was especially designed for protecting individuals who work or move alone or who have an increased need for security. The mobile phone used for Personal Alarm transfers all alarms to our nonstop operating ARCs. Alarms can not only be triggered manually, but also, thanks to specific sensors, when the person in need is no longer able to generate an alarm. Our ARC operators will then immediately initiate the intervention measures from the alarm plan.
Personal Alarm is different from the other "security app solutions" we describe on these pages, since it is a special hardware we are using (not a software/app). The phone is manufactured by SONIM and is specifically designed for lone worker protection.
Securitas Germany have been using SONIM’s hardware for several years now and the various alarm types (man-down, acceleration etc.) are directly monitored by their ARC. Several other Securitas countries are also using Sonim devices or similar hardware (e.g. Netherlands).
The personal emergency system
This device is made for deployment in extreme situations. It is very rugged and (depending on its configuration) there are alarms for free fall or impact. This "dead-man mode" and the feature for an immediate GPS localization make this device an indispensable tool for the protection of lone-work places. The mobile phone is robust and has many additional alarm features that can be freely configured, depending on situation and requirements.
