Videofied to offer webeyeCMS as global cloud-based alarm service

Webeye has announced that Honeywell brand Videofied will offer the webeyeCMS cloud alarm service as part of its global portfolio. The award-winning webeyeCMS platform, which is integrated with the Videofied alarm system, provides both commercial and residential properties with protection and includes a CMS browser and mobile app for either iPhone or Android platforms.

In the initial stages, Videofied will offer a commercial solution incorporating both Videofied hardware and the cloud service to niche sectors like the guarding market.

Videofied will promote the entire solution globally, concentrating particularly on regions outside of those already serviced by Webeye, and has agreed to assist Webeye to penetrate markets where the business already has a presence. Later plans include a residential offering and multi-language support.

Clive Mason, managing director of Webeye, responded: “We’re honoured to have Honeywell Homes as one of our key partners and look forward to a close working relationship that offers our clients a world-beating solution.”

Skyguard debuts lone worker app for iPhone at Safety and Health Expo 2014

Lone worker safety and security solutions developer Skyguard will be launching an iPhone version of its ‘Skyguard for Smartphone’ software at this year’s Safety and Health Expo, to be held at ExCeL London between 17-19 June.

The app converts an iPhone into a fully-functional personal safety device, and represents an expansion of Skyguard’s range (which already includes software for Android, BlackBerry, Symbian and Windows Mobile handsets as well as dedicated devices).

Once installed through a simple download process, Skyguard’s software enables the end user to raise an alarm in any emergency situation by simply shaking the device for a few seconds or pressing an on-screen button.

Trained controllers at Skyguard’s 24/7 Incident Management Centre (IMC) will be able to view the user’s GPS location and registered profile information, silently listen-in and then talk to the user if it’s safe to do so.

Controllers will follow the end user’s personalised emergency procedures which could include escalating the situation to the Emergency Services, Skyguard’s National Response Service or the employer’s own nominated contacts and then guide them to the user’s location.

The ‘Skyguard for Smartphone’ software boasts a number of other safety features such as ‘Voice Memo’, which allows the user to leave a voice message on Skyguard’s system giving details of where they are going and who they are meeting. Should the user raise an alarm, this message will be made available to Skyguard’s controllers, providing them with vital additional information which they can pass on to the emergency responder.

The app also allows the end user to set a delayed alarm for any time period between five minutes and six hours which counts down and automatically raises the alarm to Skyguard’s IMC if not cancelled by the user.

Making good use of business apps

Skyguard marketing director Will Murray explained: “Organisations are increasingly moving towards equipping their workforces with the latest smartphones and making use of business apps to improve productivity. With the addition of iPhone software to our the range, Skyguard can now offer industry-leading safety solutions on every major smartphone operating system. This underlines our ongoing commitment to new product development, in turn allowing customers to choose how to connect to our service based upon their own requirements.”

Skyguard’s entire range of smartphone apps and exclusive dedicated devices will be available to view on the company’s stand (Stand M2155) at the Safety and Health Expo, where staff will be presenting live product demonstrations.

Skyguard also has three high profile clients presenting Case Study seminars on each day of the show in the Lone Worker Protection Theatre – Worcester Community Homes, Peabody and Kent Community Health NHS Trust.
