How

Works

Senior by PanicGO is a gps tracker for elderly users who enjoy their independence. It raises the alarm at the touch of a button. The button links to your Android mobile phone to provide you with cover whenever you are outside. Perhaps you are out shopping, taking a walk or enjoying the garden.

In addition, Senior provides extra cover within your own home. Instead of only one control button linked to your mobile phone, Senior links to multiple buttons located strategically throughout the house. The buttons are splash-proof. If you use the self-adhesive pad, you can place them by the WC, the bath, the bed, on the arm of a chair, wherever you might need to be in contact. The signals from these buttons are collected by a receiver in the house providing excellent coverage. With Senior you have a system which supports you both outside the house via your mobile, and inside via the buttons.

How to use

With Senior, you have a choice of monitoring options. For a monthly fee, you can arrange for 24/7 cover from a UK Careline which provides round the clock monitoring services. We use a TSA Platinum accredited call centre for our Careline option. Or, at no additional charge, you can arrange for a carer, family or friends to be your “watchers”. However, if your “watchers” do not respond to an emergency call, the alert is switched to the Careline for a fixed charge.

Senior provides you with several control buttons to use inside the house or beyond. The button is small, light and discreet. It comes with a clip which attaches to a key ring, bag or belt. Its self-adhesive pad will attach to most surfaces. In the event of a problem, the button can be pressed discreetly to raise the alarm. And Senior works not just to raise the alarm. Double click the button to generates a URL map page. This can be sent to your family, carer or friends, so they can see where you are.

How does your gps tracker for elderly users work ?

The PanicGO Senior gps tracker for elderly and active users is based on an app. This app works continuously in the background of your Android mobile smartphone, or through the receiver in your own house. You continue to use your phone as normal, and for most of the time the only sign of activity is a small logo at the top of the screen.

Every 15 minutes the phone will silently send a GPS location message to the PanicGO server. Whenever the user clicks or presses and holds the button, an updated location is provided to the server. Before heading out, the user can leave a voice message on the server for any of the “watchers”. In the event of an alarm activation, a silent call will open on the user’s phone so that the “watcher” or call centre can listen to what is happening, and they can speak to the user. Users can select a sequence of “watchers” to receive any distress calls, but if no “watcher” answers the call, it will divert to a Careline for a fixed charge.

Technical – Senior gps tracker for elderly

The PanicGO Senior system currently runs only on smartphones running Android versions 5.0 to 10.0 inclusive, and with Bluetooth 4.0 and upwards. Do not block Caller ID. Then link your new dedicated PanicGO Bluetooth Buttons.

The phone of the Senior user must not be on a PAYG contract which could run out of credit and stop working. It is essential that you maintain the batteries in both the phone and the button. To help with this, the PanicGO Senior Back Office monitors the battery levels, both in the lone worker’s phone and in their button. No special technical skill is required to set up the system. If you can download an app and set up wifi, then you can sort it out yourself. And if you can’t, then plenty of people will be happy to help!

PanicGO Senior is due to complete its technical assessments and field testing by Spring 2021. If you would like to be alerted when Senior becomes available, please click on this link.

Subscriptions for Seniors

We do not sell the ownership of our Senior system. Rather we provide a subscription service which links the different elements together. This provides you with significant savings as the user. You provide the existing Android phone and SIM card and you nominate your “watchers”. We provide the buttons and the controlling app. We also provide the server which tracks Senior users 24/7. All this is covered by the subscription. What is not included in the standard subscription is any monitoring by our Careline partner. The Senior user can add 24/7 monitoring to their subscription. Alternatively you can pay a pre-determined surcharge if the Careline has to receive a diverted call.

Please note the distinction between tracking which is simply electronically following your location, and monitoring which involves a human at the Careline. Senior will release in Spring 2021. For further details and pricing options, please contact us on enquiries@panicgo.com.
