Our client’s goal is to create added value for society and people by an integrated product and service portfolio that makes it possible to build and run a better-networked society. The client noticed the lack of safety and lighting in most of Sweden's urban centres has increased public demand to improve security. That is why special safety zones were created equipped with cameras and alarm systems. The objective was to provide a dedicated mobile application that may be connected to the nearest safety zones.
The mobile application has been created mainly for public transport users who feel unsafe walking long distances between bus stops. Security Zone App is provided with a map of the nearest safe zones and makes the user-visible by the security centre, which can track its steps. This is possible thanks to the beacon integration by sending a radio signal that detects mobile devices close by. The application connects via Bluetooth to the user's mobile phone at the nearest safe zone, and the user can talk to the dispatcher. Using the cameras included in the security zones, the dispatcher can assess the situation and call security services to proceed to the scene.
The application provides a quick connection in just a few seconds with the dispatcher and allows people to feel more secure. Rapid data processing makes sure that the application is working smoothly, the interface is self-explanatory and easy to use. Security Zone App is free and is available on IOS and Android Systems. The pilot programme has been tested in Stockholm, and it will be extended to other countries in the future. We are still working on additional features.
Hats off to those guys! They have done the best of this time.
