Augusta, GA, July 14, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Guardian Watch™ announces the upcoming launch of its newest award winning multi-platform applications. Dedicated to leveraging the latest technology to create a better, safer world, Guardian Watch™ hopes the new enhancements will provide users with increased value. The application allows a direct line of communication between users and first responders through proprietary Visual Awareness technology empowering citizens to take action that can help them protect their community and even save lives.
In light of several recent notable cases involving the members of neighborhood watch groups, providing citizens the tools necessary to communicate effectively when reporting a crime or experiencing an emergency has become an urgent duty for Dr. Gordon Jones, founder, Guardian Watch™. “A neighborhood watch is not a vigilante organization, nor should it strive to be,” says Jones. “Instead, members of these groups should work closely with local public safety officials and law enforcement agencies to best ensure the safety of the community as a whole and all its citizens as individuals.”
With their new Vicinity-Based Alert Notification™ system embedded in the existing Guardian Watch™ applications, members will be able to receive alerts by SMS, email, or even an automate phone call when an emergency report is made within a specified area around them. This will allow the member to make an informed decision such as avoid the area, flee the scene, or even respond if the person has a special skill such as CPR.
Jones is confident that the updated applications will enable reasonable citizens to play an active role in the protection of their families and neighbors from potentially threatening situations. Says Jones, “Guardian Watch™ allows users to stream live video from a safe distance without putting themselves in danger at the scene of a crime, fire, or other emergency. Many instances in which citizens find themselves in harm’s way may be avoided with this revolutionary tool. Guardian Watch™ even has a Safety Guide specifically educating our members on how to track and trace a suspicious person without engaging them directly.”
