Using the App
The iHelp Plus app offers a number of different features but one of the most importan is the alarm tool. With this tool you will be able to use either a silent or audible alarm, you can send out a distress signal to the monitoring center any time of the day or night, there is a five second countdown, and you can send out a PSAP number with your location. There is also the delayed alarm you can set up and will send a distress alarm to the monitoring center. The duress situation function is meant to be used in those situations where you find yourself in trouble and it will send out a silent alarm without any one being able to see it on your device. You’ll find that all the tools and functions are quick and easy to set up, which is exactly what is needed in an offering like this.
