Guardian24 launches exclusive lone worker key fob alarm

11 February 2015

Guardian24, a leading provider of lone worker safety solutions, has launched an exclusive new personal safety alarm - the MicroGuard.

The key-fob sized device combines the latest GPS, GPRS and G-sensor technologies to provide lone workers with an easy to use, yet highly effective means to call for help at the touch of a button.

Certified to the British Standard for Lone Worker Device Services (BS 8484), the MicroGuard connects to Guardian24’s dedicated UK Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC); also certified to BS 8484 and BS 5979 (Category II). Trained ARC Controllers will determine the nature of the situation through GPS location tracking and remote two way audio streaming. In addition to the SOS button, MicroGuard also features a fall alarm which will automatically raise an alert to the ARC in the event of a fall or sudden impact.

Another feature of the device allows the user to leave specific pre alert voice messages providing details of their activity and location. These voice messages will be immediately available to the ARC controllers if an alarm is activated, providing vital additional information which can be passed to the emergency responder. 

Despite MicroGuard’s small size, the device boasts a market-leading battery life of over 200 hours in standby, depending on how the device is configured for use. And the device’s flexible design means it can be discreetly worn as pendant, attached to a keyring or belt, or even worn as an identity card holder using an accessory.
