    • Add live integration between the app and fire safety information ie. refuge points(Belfast campus), building safe after alarms, routes etc.

      After completing safety awareness training today, I noted that the campus has no clear refuge points. Also noted that after an evacuation occupants are left unclear when a building can be re-entered and that the University were looking at a way to address this. The idea of adding this information as an app notification along with the option of marking as safe during a fire or other alert, raising alarms and potential hazards like hot work etc. is something that should be included, especially once the new campus becomes operational.

        Sorry for the late response, but I just wanted to inform that this is something we’ve thought about but not had the push from users and customers to develop. As demand increases for this kind of function I will update this suggestion with progress.

      • Being able to tell a responder roughly what floor a user is on if help is requested

        The app could potentially use the barometer in some smartphones such as newer iPhones to better locate people within buildings if help is requested, the barometer could be used to roughly tell a responder what floor the user is on in order to reach them quicker.

          Thanks for the feedback. The way we understand the barometer and altimeter function on the newer iPhones is that it returns an altitude rather than an elevation, which means each building would need to have a base altitude configured to give a meaningful estimate. We also have concerns around accuracy and efficacy of using elevation to determine floor number. Currently we provide indoor positioning solutions utilising BLE iBeacon technology. To discuss this please ask your organisation to contact sales@criticalarc.com. We will take a look at this suggesting though just in case there is something we missed.

        • add a widget for quick access

          if there is an emergency, it could be difficult to open the app to press the button. a widget (ideally accessible even on a lock screen) would make asking for help quicker. there is the issue of accidently pressing it, for example in your pocket, but perhaps make it so you have to press it 3 times or confirm that you meant to press it.

          • Show Check-In Status

            The Check-In pictogram could reflect check-in status. i.e. white/grey = checked out, green = successfully checked in.
            Could be enhanced with amber / flashing when getting close to auto-check out.

              We will be expanding the Check-In function early next year with virtual escort where check-ins can optionally be on a timer and raise an alert if you do not respond to prompts as well as some other functions, in doing that we will be improving the Check-In user interface and the feedback. Thanks!

            • Camera / Video

              the user could take snap or short video clip of troubled area or evidence of the scene

              • Coordinates

                the "check in" should also show coordinates to the user so he / she could share with assisting parties.

                • Allow reporting of non-emergency incidents

                  If it's not emergent, we could send a text message to security to define the situation. Like a snake passing by or there is a fight or something like that

                    We are now working on two-way text messaging from SafeZone to the Campus security team. Initially we will focus on text messaging only, but will extend the feature to include photos and video. Thanks everyone for boting!

                  • Add a tutorial

                    There should be a tutorial to teach me how to use SafeZoneApp without having to raise alerts to campus security.

                      I'd like to be able to test SafeZoneApp without bothering campus security, or having to go to the designated test areas.
