A GPS, Text Message, Alert App for Android
About the app
The Beaconeer™, for Android, was originally designed for Church Ushers and Greeters who are the first line of defense in a church. It will give them added protection in emergencies so they can maintain a sense of control in difficult situations at the door. Once you login, 1 click on the Red, Yellow, or Green "Beacon" and the church's security Team or Trustees are alerted that a level of help is needed:
The Beaconeer™ sends text messages and GPS locality, to a user defined recipient list. In a localized or personal at-risk event, the red, yellow, green “beacons”, when pressed, include an automatic incident status message.
Code Red sends GPS location and a danger status message.
Code Yellow sends GPS location and a caution status message.
Code Green sends GPS location and a "situation under control" status message.
Tip: The Beaconeer Operations Screens are touch sensitive! Avoid misfiring your Beacons!
When the app is not in use, exit or set it on another screen, such as the Edit, Notes, or FAQ screens.
The Beaconeer™ Co-Inventors are P.Kelly and F.Avery.
We hope this app starts the conversation, with families, organizations such as churches, storefront staff, and everyone who faces daily situations where they experience a need to "proceed with caution" or feel they are in an "at-risk" situation.
We hope people will use The Beaconeer™ as a tool to be pro-active in emergency communications planning. We recommend you have a church staff meeting, a company office meeting, or family meeting periodically to review your "Beaconeer Protocol".
