How does SwiftAlarm GOLD work?

Multi-patented solutions

Once set up, SwiftAlarm! GOLD determines your location and stores the last five positions in your smartphone. The ingenious feature: with its patented technology, the app selects exactly the right pre-defined contacts depending on your location. One person will get a call, while the other pre-set contacts will receive a text message with your exact location.

Swift positioning

By means of innovative GPS positioning and storing, SwiftAlarm! GOLD manages the balancing act to provide reliable security while at the same time respecting your privacy: The app determines your location and stores it in your smartphone at regular intervals. This is necessary to save valuable time in case of an emergency. While it can take up to 30 seconds to reliably find your location when you’re outdoors, it may be not possible at all when you’re in a building. Therefore, SwiftAlarm! saves the last five locations in the smartphone’s internal memory. As long as the alarm is not triggered, the data will never leave your phone.

Simple handling

In an emergency, all you need to do is to push the big red button on your smartphone, and SwiftAlarm! will notify the people who can help you in your current location. Learn more about SwiftAlarm! GOLD on our FAQ page.

Your safety is our passion

When developing SwiftAlarm! GOLD, we thought of our own relatives. It was most important to us that the app is user-friendly and works flawlessly. And we are convinced that we have achieved both.

Transmission via text message

One of the special features of SwiftAlarm! is how the alarm is sent: The system is based on good old-fashioned text messages. This has several advantages:

A

Alarm transmission possible without internet connection

We have all been there: Mobile internet connection doesn’t always work as well as we would like it to, and in some areas almost not at all. Especially for an alarm app, this is a security risk. Therefore, we developed SwiftAlarm! from the beginning to work without internet connection. You will send out normal text messages, which works almost all the time and everywhere. In the very unlikely event that you have an internet connection, but no phone reception, the alarm can also be sent via internet. Additional fees will be charged.

B

Exception: iPhone and external devices

Unfortunately, Apple does not allow automatic text message sending. So on an iPhone, you need to manually confirm the transmission.

If you are using one of our additional devices with your iPhone (SwiftAlarm! NoPanic ViolenceProtection or SwiftAlarm! NoPanic Professional FallDetection), mobile internet is needed to send the alarm.

The emergency contacts does not need to have the app installed himself

As recipients, you can select friends, relatives, neighbors, colleagues or your family doctor – and they don’t need to have the app installed on their own smartphones. In case of an emergency, your emergency contacts will receive a text message with a link, so we recommend to select people who are using a smartphone. A very simple one with internet connection and a browser is enough.
The link leads to your personal map, which shows your last four as well as your current position. The receipient can then jump to a route planner with one click to see the fastest way to get to your position.
