Quick and easy to set up, it works by setting the number 1800 911 000 to speed dial from your own mobile phone, when activated your personalised message will be instantly sent to your support network of friends and family who can respond immediately. Use the Community Inform Service to keep an eye on your neighbourhood and let home owners know of suspicious activity in your area by dialling a free phone number 1800-INFORM (1800 46 36 76).
Compared to expensive burglar alarm systems and various “panic button” solutions, it is a very affordable security system with pricing starting from as low as €4.99 a month. Setting up your account takes 5 minutes at www.Dial4Help.ie and another minute to set up your own mobile phone. It couldn’t be simpler.
Teqnoco is an international mobile technology firm based in the West of Ireland, with extensive experience in the telecom industry serving thousands of business customers worldwide since 2008.
Founder Stan Kuznetsov says: “by using our mobile phone technology we can assist whole communities to feel safer especially those who live on their own or in remote areas. At the push of a button, we can send a pre-set message to your support network, whether friends or family, asking for immediate assistance. If you have had a fall and need help you can use speed dial to send a message for help to your neighbour.
Instead of waiting 20 – 30 minutes for emergency services to arrive, your friends and neighbours could be at the scene to assist you within minutes. Given the recent closures of local Garda stations I realised there was a real need to give people peace of mind and to feel safe and secure in their own home. It’s cheap, easy to use and gives you and your family members’ peace of mind.
We will be adding even more useful features in the coming weeks , such as video surveillance from a web-cam on your PC or laptop, and geo-location of your mobile phone to name a few.”
