Expand your security company offering with mySOS

Issue 8 2021 Security Services & Risk Management

The mySOS mobile panic button offers your existing client base value-added services while offering you an additional revenue stream with no capital outlay.

Because of ongoing (and growing) crime activity all over South Africa, security services have never been more crucial. Beyond protection for valuables and premises, people are looking to ensure their personal safety and that of their loved ones as they move around their neighbourhoods.

A mobile panic button connected to their trusted security company can be a priceless life-saving service to many people.

Moreover, numerous individuals and families have embraced mobile or remote devices to ensure accessibility and safety wherever they may be during an emergency – be it at school, walking, cycling, running, exercising the dog – or even in their home to ensure that they get help after a fall or incident that leaves them physically immobile.

mySOS offers a highly-effective mobile panic button solution that will not only expand your existing security solutions; but will also enable your security company to protect its existing client base beyond the perimeter of their property as well as add real value at an additional cost to their monthly subscription.

What's more, the mySOS mobile panic button will save your security company expensive callout fees as you can communicate with your client directly through the button.

mySOS will also provide you with a fully functional management console to manage emergencies that are activated by your users, as well as an API to facilitate easy integration into existing software systems. There is also a user dashboard white labelling option and other services available.

Another unique functionality of the mySOS mobile panic button is that it does not depend on a home alarm system’s signal, it transmits its signal via the GSM network, avoiding difficult setup or range constraints.

The wearable panic button solution:

Supports voice calls – the control room can call the panic button directly to confirm the emergency before personnel are dispatched to the scene. This reduces the number of false alarm occurrences, enabling both the security company and customer to save on call out fees.

• Sends live GPS co-ordinates to the control room and listed contacts when an emergency is activated.

• Can be white labelled and/or branded.

• Comes with a web-based console that allows companies to manage all aspects of the mySOS service.

At mySOS, we have seen a dramatic uptake of the panic button solution in schools, retirement homes, households, small businesses as well as communities as part of their neighbourhood safety initiatives.

These features and the known reliability of mySOS provide something money can’t buy, the peace of mind your customers get from knowing that their trusted security company is just a button press away.
