RedAlert Lone Worker Apps

Our choice of Apps provides a comprehensive range of features that can be tailored for individual teams in various working environments.

Our BS8484 certified lone worker applications are available for both iPhone and Android mobile devices. Our RedAlert Apps are designed for lone workers with access to mobile technology during work hours, who do not want to carry an additional security device, or just prefer a more convenient solution. As our Apps are software-based, this lone working system is also the most affordable solution within our range.

Our bespoke online software provides authorised users with immediate access to a full suite of lone working features, fully supported by our BS5979 CAT II Alarm Receiving Centre team (ARC).

For more information on how we can help protect your team, feel free to request a free trial, or chat with one of our experts for any further guidance.

Why choose an app to protect your team?

MAPS in an ideal security solution for site owners with the following needs:

No Service Limitation

Our RedAlert App will function perfectly, regardless of mobile network or service type, providing vital communication with our ARC operations team.

Location Tracking

The RedAlert App will update the location of the user via GPS, providing real-time positional information via our online management portal.

Check Calls

Users can schedule regular Amber Alert Timers during their shift, triggering a vibrating and audible notification alert when the timer is due to expire.  If the Amber Timer is not acknowledged once the timer has expired, our ARC team will take necessary action.

Motion Sensors

With both a fall alert and non-movement sensor, the user can be rest assured that all possible situations are covered, and help will be immediately available.

Audit Trail

From positional information to Amber and Red Alert recordings, the App creates a detailed audit trail which is viewable via the online management portal.

Bolton at Home Case Study

“We are very pleased with the devices as they do exactly what is expected, the software is very user-friendly, the GPS tracking function is precise, and the call handling response is phenomenal; virtually all of our activated alerts have been responded to within 20 seconds.

Also, the service Orbis have provided us is second to none; all of their staff are very helpful, knowledgeable and polite. Emails/phone calls are responded to very quickly, and I don’t think there has been a single instance where our Account Manager/Orbis advisors haven’t been able to help.”
