The CheckMate Mobile Man Down alarm feature activates an emergency man down alarm notification if the wireless phone assumes a horizontal position (i.e. the person carrying it falls to the floor). It implements a sensor and evaluates the actual angle of inclination. There are three settings: Low (10 degrees), Med (30 degrees) and High (45 degrees). When the Man Down feature is enabled, If the phone is at an angle as described above for 30 seconds or longer a phase 1 warning triggers. The phone starts vibrating and makes a noise. You then have 30 seconds to cancel the pending alarm by opening the CheckMate Mobile app and cancelling the pending alarm (after you enter a valid password). If cancelled the phone resets and the whole process starts over. If it is not reset in 30 seconds, an alarm is sent to our Emergency Response Center.
CheckMate Mobile also links you to your CheckMate Account so that you can manage your check-ins. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
