If you are looking for an affordable lone worker monitoring system which is reliable, simple to use and easy to deploy, the mobile phone based ‘Lookout call’ system could be ideal.
Unlike systems which need the worker to remember to carry a separate device, often with a poor battery life, ‘Lookout call’ avoids these problems. The lone worker simply uses their phone to provide updates describing their movements and the system never forgets to check they are safe at the appropriate time. It’s an automated Buddy which is 100% reliable.
Lookout Call currently provides automated lone working safety systems and emergency response solutions to a wide range of organisations. There are 3 different versions available, each offering a different way to access the system.
All forms of Lookout Call utilise existing mobile phones, removing the need for expensive, dedicated lone worker safety devices and technical know-how that other systems or solutions may require.
The Lookout Call lone worker safety system is based around location messages and timed countdowns set by the user. If the lone working individual is unable to acknowledge the safe completion of their timed activity an emergency alarm will be raised, alerting pre-arranged responders.
This alarm will be raised even if the remote worker’s phone has been turned off, out of signal or destroyed.
Organisations can choose either named contacts as emergency responders or they can choose to have calls routed to a specialist Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) of their choice.
Lookout Call Access Options
1. Speed Dial
The original Lookout Call interface and still popular with clients; this version allows lone working individuals to call into the system via pre-defined speed dial numbers and use the buttons on their keypad to update their status.
The system will conduct a welfare check after a defined period of time, and should the lone worker not respond an alarm will be raised. Alternatively, users can raise instant panic alarms or request close supervision for a period of time via the ‘Watch Me’ functionality.
Features Available Include:
- Timed Activities
- Call Back Facility
- Emergency Alarms
- Extended Timers
- Location Updates
2. Voice Recognition
Instead of relying on Lookout Calls Speed Dial functionality, our Voice Recognition version allows lone workers to call a single number and interact with the worker safety system via its intelligent voice recognition interface.
Remote or on-call staff can access all the safety features of standard Lookout Call. A quick, simple way to use the system; voice recognition is perfect for staff members who lack time or confidence using technology!
3. Lookout Call Smartphone App
Mobile apps have proved a popular solution in the lone worker safety sector.
The Lookout Call app works on all Apple devices and will trigger an emergency alarm even if your phone is turned off, damaged or out of network coverage.
Unlike other systems and solutions, Lookout Call doesn’t require dedicated devices or alarms meaning that the iPhone app is a cost-effective and convenient means of enhancing your safety as a lone working individual, whether you are undertaking offsite visits or travelling for work.
