The LifeCircle technology is the heart of SwiftAlarm! GOLD:
According to your location, you can choose which contacts to be notified in case of an emergency.
Therefore, please tell SwiftAlarm! GOLD about the places you visit regularly, such as your home and office :
Please input your home address and add relevant information, if necessary, and select who you want to contact if you had an accident at home. Who could reach you fastest? Maybe a neighbour? Or friends who live close by?
You can input your contacts’ phone numbers manually or access your phone’s address book by tapping on the icon of a person next to the number field. Select here who should receive a text message and on the next page who should get a phone call. For text messages, you can select several friends.
We recommend to give an extra house key to a person you trust, so emergency services wouldn’t have to force open your door.
In this LifeCircle, you can input information about your workplace. Your first responders could be a colleague or someone who works nearby.
If you own a car, please describe its model and colour. SwiftAlarm! GOLD will try to detect if you are in a car add the information about the car in case of an emergency.
This one is for your gym or sports club.
Lastly, you can select whom to call when you’re outside of your usual LifeCircles.
Whom do you want to send your location data in case of emergency? Whom would you like to call?
You can create as many LifeCircles as you like. The system will know when you’re there and will notify the right people for the right places. And of course you can change all these settings later.
Now please activate GPS in your phone’s settings. You will see that the system starts searching for your position.
