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.2 votes
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.
Do you guys already tun a practical wirkshop to learn how to fully use this app?1 vote
We do not currently run any workshops for using SafeZone app. There is an FAQ available at https://safezoneapp.com. We are also looking into providing in-app help.
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.7 votes
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 email@example.com. We will take a look at this suggesting though just in case there is something we missed.
the "check in" should also show coordinates to the user so he / she could share with assisting parties.11 votes
Thanks for the idea. We will consider this feature request and update you.
