SOS/Silent SOS 

Both watches-1

From the main screen of the smart watch app, you can send an SOS or Silent SOS alert. To do so, click the corresponding icon. After a three second countdown (to mitigate false alerts), monitoring personnel will be notified you need help.





Checking in


Your smart watch can be used to check in when the timer is up, or to perform an early check-in. 

To perform an early check-in, select the timer from the main screen of the Loner Mobile app on your smart watch. Here you can check in with or without a note for context.


Pending alarms




In the case that Loner Mobile detects no motion or a fall or your check in timer reaches zero, the pending alarm will also come through to your smart watch. Here you can acknowledge and stand down the alert, or if you need help, let it escalate to red alert to notify monitoring personnel.
