As the most advanced protection service in Australia, Duress is being used by thousands of small to medium businesses, corporates and government departments across the country. With this number of users, coupled with the fact that most people won’t declare an emergency in a given year, Duress is able to significantly offer the highest grade in monitoring (A1) at a price much cheaper then the rest of the market.
Duress uses cutting edge cameras, microphones and GPS modules that are built into a device you already own - your phone. This means no extra hardware, maintenance, chargers or updates, significantly reducing the cost of operating the service, as well as allowing us to push updates weekly to our members.
Nothing. As soon as you declare an emergency, we assume the worst, so you do not have to talk to us to explain what the problem is. We will see and hear the video/audio from your phone, see your location, see your profile, and contact the Police.
If you accidentally declare an emergency, simply enter your PIN number to cancel. Our operations centre will see you have cancelled your emergency, and we will cancel the Police attending.
As soon as you declare an emergency, it is sent to the Duress Operations Centre. The Duress Operations Centre see that you are in trouble in seconds, and alert the Police with your location, your profile and your live streaming video.
Yes, you can choose to have a loud alarm noise during an emergency, to scare away the attacker and to draw attention, or you can choose to have a silent alarm with no audio alarm. The audio alarm can be turned on and off in the menu.
