Digital Witness™ was originally designed as a personal safety and security app. If ever you find yourself in situations where you feel unsafe or under threat activate the Digital Witness™ app on your phone and leave it on until you feel you are safe.
School, College and University campuses can improve the safety and security for their students by encouraging students to download Digital Witness™ onto their iPhones and making the school security office one of their security contacts.
When a student feels they are at risk, an instant Digital Witness™ alert will be sent to the security office allowing them to respond immediately. Not only will they know a student needs assistance, but Digital Witness™ will also provide the details of where the student is located on Google Maps and their GPS coordinates.
For the elderly suffering from dementia, lost children or anyone who finds themselves in an unfamiliar place where they get lost or disoriented, Digital Witness™ can be used to send an alert to parents or friends to help them locate you where you are.
If you get lost or disoriented, point your phone’s camera at a near-by landmark or feature and press the “Help” button. Your security contacts will receive the picture of the landmark – which they may recognise as well as your location details, to allow them to come and find you or call you and give you directions.
If your are injured and are incapacitated by the injury and need help, Digital Witness™ is the perfect duress alarm. Not only does it send an alert, it tells your security contacts where you are.
Employees may often find themselves in situations where they may be at risk. Working alone at remote sites, alone with potentially aggressive clients or going home late after working overtime. Digital Witness™ is ideal for such situations.
Employers can help by promoting the use of Digital Witness™ to their employees and allowing employees to make the Corporate Security office one of their Digital Witness™ security contacts while at work.
When you are travelling on business or vacation in an unfamiliar destination, ask any local friends or business contacts to be your Digital Witness™ security contacts.
If you get lost, point your phone’s camera at a near-by landmark or feature and press the “Help” button. Your security contacts will receive the picture of the landmark – which they may recognise as well as your location details, to allow them to come and find you or call you and give you directions.
