Anyone could be in a situation where they feel in distress, threatened or have the need for access to immediate emergency assistance for physical or medical reasons. Teachers, Students, Housewives, Social Workers, Loan Workers, Physicians, are just a few examples of users that benefit from SmartAlert.
If you have a known medical condition including allergies please inform the central monitoring station so that the information can be added to your record and you get the most out or our App. We also recommend having your record noted with any other information that may be useful in an emergency, such as orders of protection. It is often also helpful to know if the user is engaged in a business that might add additional risk, jeweler, check cashiers, and pharmacists are some examples.
The Onwatch App is designed to add an additional layer of protection, and should be combined with good personal safety practices such as:
Being aware of your surroundings especially at night
Don’t walk or jog early in the morning or late at night when the streets are deserted.
When out at night, try to have a friend walk with you.
Don’t display your cash or any other inviting targets such as pagers, cell phones, hand-held electronic games, or expensive jewelry and clothing.
If you think someone is following you, switch directions or cross the street. If the person continues to follow you, move quickly toward an open store or restaurant or a lighted house. Don’t be afraid to yell for help.
Try to park in well-lighted areas with good visibility and close to walkways, stores, and people.
Always check the back seat of your vehicle before entering the vehicle,
Make sure you have your key out as you approach your door.
Always lock your car, even if it’s in your own driveway; never leave your motor running.
Do everything you can to keep a stranger from getting into your car or to keep a stranger from forcing you into his or her car.
If a dating partner has abused you, do not meet him or her alone. Do not let him or her in your home or car when you are alone.
If you are a battered spouse, call the police immediately. Assault is a crime, whether committed by a stranger or your spouse or any other family member. If you believe that you and your children are in danger, call a crisis hotline or a health center (the police can also make a referral) and leave immediately.
If someone tries to rob you, give up your property—don’t give up your life.
If you are robbed or assaulted, report the crime to the police. Try to describe the attacker accurately. Your actions can help prevent someone else from becoming a victim.
