Watchdog is a very usefull APP to help people who are victims of stalking and/or bullism, especially women and young people, but also other persons who works alone and/or in dangerous conditions or who live alone, such as old people.
Watchdog is very easy to use.
First of all, you have to insert a telephone number to contact in case of danger (for example your parents, your partner or one of your friend’s telephone number) Secondly , you have to touch the Watchdog Logo on your smartphone and the app will start to monitor your smartphone’s rake angle.
If your smartphone is positioned horizontally and it keeps this inclination more than 30 seconds, the Watchdog APP will launch the alarm automatically. After the start up phase, these 3 following operations will automatically occur:
1° : the App will call the number you previously set up.
2°: the App will send a message with the address from where you launched the alarm.
3°: the device automatically will make 15 minutes video to record what is happening, in order to use it in case of trial.
Once you are safe, you can disarm the alarm simply touching again the Watchdog Logo
The APP does all the operations in background. During the monitoring service you can regularly your smartphone paying not to keep in a horizontal position. During the emercency phase, the phone seems to be in the Sleep Mode in order not to attract the attention of the aggressor. If the app can’t detect the address it will send the coordinates (latitude/longitude) in order to make the position reachable in any case.
We suggest to keep your smartphone always in your hand or in your pocket and not inside your bag, because you might start the alarm even when you don’t need help. For your first use of the monitoring service, we advice you to shake your smartphone in order to regulate and calibrate the motion sensor.
In the next upgrade, the video recorded by your device during the alarm phase will be sent to a Web Server so that, in case of theft or loss of your smartphone, you will be able to recover the video from the Watchdog web site.
