Working Alone FAQs

Live GPS location sharing of lone working employees through their phone is an incredibly powerful safety measure, if done correctly.  GetHomeSafe - Lone Worker app is session-based, and employees (not managers) control when their GPS location is shared and recorded. 

The system is built on a four-tier access hierarchy and fully GDPR-compliant audit trail of access to personal information.

No, it is a one-off cost, starting from $NZD 35  for one, with bulk purchase discounts.  You own it, we don’t lease them. There are also wearable accessories available to purchase, for your convenience.

GetHomeSafe is designed to monitor time. If your phone is outside of cell coverage, the app caches the locations and prompts you to find coverage.  The app reminds you to check-in (and find coverage) even when out of signal.

If you fail to check-in the server (not your phone) sends the alert to your nominated contacts, creating a catch-all and fail-safe system to alert someone, regardless of what has happened to you or your phone. 

If your staff works outside of cellular coverage frequently, please refer to our Remote Worker options

If you’re worried about people complaining about a ‘big brother’ style invasion of privacy, we have included ‘objection handling’ which equips your staff trainers with the information needed to counter these concerns.

It is about the same as the range on your TV remote control.

No, it must be paired with the app and there must be an active session running.  If you are looking for a standalone duress button we have some more options on our hardware page.

Depending on how often you use GetHomeSafe, we expect data usage to range around 80mb per month.
