NOTE: This is the enterprise version of the Amika®Panic for Mobile app, which is licensed through connectivity to an Amika Mobility Server (AMS) mass notification solution. If you are looking for the Amika®Panic app which works without AMS connectivity, it is at: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.amikamobile.panic
This app provides PANIC and I-AM-OK icons, giving you the ability to quickly and easily initiate alert messages to security contacts within your organization. Either a PANIC or an I-AM-OK message may be sent, simply by launching the app. Messages incorporate your location and your contact information, and may be sent over any or all of the 20+ alerting layers supported by the AMS, such as email, SMS, callouts, overhead displays, speakers, desktop pop-ups, etc. within seconds.
Your organization's security team must provide you with instructions for activating the app functionality. They may optionally also enable the app to send messages to your personal contacts.
- activation by an employee calls a location-specific security team to their location
- activation by an employee after hours calls local police
- activation by a travelling executives places phone calls to both local police and corporate security teams
- activation by specific security personnel triggers a general lockdown
PANIC INITIATION: Press the red icon. Your device will vibrate with increasing urgency, and a cancel button appears with a countdown. If the cancel is not pressed before the countdown expires, the PANIC message and your location will be sent immediately.
I-AM-OK INITIATION: Press the green icon, then press the I-AM-OK button. The message and your location will be sent immediately.
NOTE: Amika®Panic SMS messages rely on availability of wireless carrier service. The email and AMS messaging rely relies on either WiFi or cellular data service. Depending upon your cellular plan, you may be charged for these services. Location provision relies on your device's GPS capability being enabled. The app will only activate GPS when sending a message, and for a very short time thereafter. If location services are not available at activation, your last known location will be provided (with a "stale" warning). If the location subsequently becomes available, a second message will be sent. Note that location accuracy is affected by GPS satellite line of sight.
