If you turn on power save, we recommend that you exclude BShield. Because settings vary from between smartphone operating systems and carriers we recommend you consult your smartphone literature.
BShield utilizes the GPS location information from your smartphone.. Depending on how frequent this information is updated your device may not immediately report the correct location. In real live testing we have found location data is accurate after the second signal has been sent during an emergency (usually within 60 seconds).
BShield itself works worldwide. Testing has been done in Europe and Australia. Make sure to check with your service provider that they have location and authority data (e.g., police) for your area.
Lone Worker and Lone Worker voice are applications for people who work alone. A person working alone would activate Lone Worker. When activated Lone Worker sends a signal with their location information along with information on how long they will be working. If the worker does not reset the system before the time duration expires your service provides gets an alarm and notifies the proper authorities.
Lone Worker Voice allows a lone worker to leave a voicemail with their service provider containing additional information relative to their location. As an example the Lone Worker might give the area within a building they are working if it is a large building.
Yes, when you signed up for service with a central alarm station you should have been provided with a copy of the user instructions that contained your activation code.
