AloneAlarmâ„¢ is a Personal Alarm and Security System which provides both â€˜Man Down â€˜ and â€˜Panicâ€™ modes of operation.
In â€˜Man Downâ€™ mode, it watches the phoneâ€™s motion and, should it (and, presumably, the user) remain motionless for more than a user-defined period of time, it will forward an Alarm Notification in the form of an email or SMS message to a designated monitoring site.
In â€˜Panicâ€™ mode, it will send an immediate Panic Notification to the specified recipient(s).
The Notification messages contain substantial information as to the alarm situation, including a near-precise location of the phone when the notification was sent. This location assessment is dependent on the accuracy of reverse-geocoding which can be calculated. See www.alonealarm.com for a typical Alarm Notification.
When first run, it requires the user to enter basic details such as their Name, and the email address and/or SMS number for the remote site.
When setup is completed for the first time, the user is assigned a number of free email and SMS credits, along with a User Code which may be used in purchasing further credits from the AloneAlarm site at www.alonealarm.com .
