Fenomy app for Android now
has an emergency call option – the
When the alarm button is pressed (hold down for 3 seconds), the device immediately switches to power saving mode.
The application starts collecting data about the movement of the device and tracking the signal. In the event of no active signal the app will be in waiting mode. As soon as a weak or short-term signal appears, the Fenomy application sends the information of the last known coordinates to the data processing server in small packets using a special protocol. If the connection is stable the application sends the entire track of movement from the moment of the help request.
As soon as the server detects the Alarm, notifications are sent to people from the first circle, as well as to everyone who's settings allow them to receive notifications from other loyalty circles.
Everyone who receives the notification sees where the signal source is located on the map, the exact distance to it and read the text comment if it is sent.
When the Alarm recipient is ready to help, they press "Accept Call" and are automatically connected to information updates. The one who triggers the Alarm will see how many people accepted the call.
