Monitored protection at your fingertips
Monitored Protection in Your Pocket
The Duress app is monitored 24/7 by the Duress Operations Centre, a team of highly trained security personnel, who are qualified to notify the Police or other emergency services on your behalf, directing them to your location should you need.
How to declare an emergency
Duress allows your team to stream live video and audio live to our security team, getting police notified and on their way to your location in seconds. Declare an emergency in 3 simple ways
Slide the bottom bar to declare an emergency.
Slide the slider at the bottom of the screen to declare an emergency. Your phone will begin streaming your live video, audio and GPS location.
Shake your phone to
declare an emergency
While firmly holding, shake your phone until the countdown is activated. Your phone will then begin streaming your live video, audio and GPS location.
Quick widgets enable you with the fastest way to declare an emergency from your lock screen or home screen. You can set up widget through your phone settings.
Feel unsafe or unsecure?
Don’t feel safe but don’t need the Police just yet? Duress monitoring allows you to hold your phone or connect your earphones to start safety monitoring.
Hold your screen to enable protective monitoring
Don't need Police, but feel unsafe? Hold anywhere on your screen while in the Duress App - this enables our operations centre to begin monitoring and track your location. If you do need Police simply release your finger off the screen and help is on the way.
Set a welfare timer to be monitored while at an appointment
Set the welfare timer by selecting a length of time so you can be monitored in real time while there. A warning will sound when time is low, choose to extend or cancel timer, no response prompts SMS alert to admins
Connect or pair headphones to begin Protective Monitoring
Just like holding your screen, headphone tracking monitors your location if you don't feel safe - if you do need Police, simply disconnect or remove from ears.
When someone in your organisation declares an emergency, the DOC are notified and the Police are requested in seconds. In addition, your nominated staff members also receive notifications and updates of the incident. This allows you to know in real time the status of any emergency your staff are facing.
If you accidentally declare an emergency, simply enter your PIN to cancel. Your PIN tells us that it is you canceling the emergency, and not the attacker. The Duress Operations Centre will cancel the Police request, and may call you to confirm that you are safe.
