Activating the Man Down Function on Android

Man down uses your phone’s sensors to detect your movement.

What is Man Down?

The ‘Man Down’ function notifies a worker’s office if there has been no movement within a set amount of time (3 minutes – 1 hour). If no movement is detected the phone will sound an alarm alerting the worker that there has been no movement. If this alert is not responded to by the worker, it will be escalated to the worker’s allocated monitor and they will contact the worker. 

You can set your man down timer length, and if the phone does not detect movement in this time it will start an alert:
Step 1: The phone will try to get you to respond on the app by confirming you are on
Step 2: The alert will be escalated to your monitors who will start the escalation procedure

How to Setup Man Down

1. Select Man Down from the Menu

2. Turn Man Down On in the first drop-down and choose the movement timer in the 2nd dropdown
