Individuals equipped with Vismo will include national newspapers, public and commercial TV and radio broadcasters.

US Elections 2016U.S. officials have issued a warning to law enforcement agencies about potential threats timed around Tuesday’s elections. With the elections predicted to pose a potential high-risk, Vismo will be key to maintaining the safety and security of these individuals. Specifically, the application will allow them to counter threats to their personal security in the event of any incident that might endanger themselves and their colleagues.

We were delighted to receive our Accolades 2016 Security’s Best Winner Award for our Vismo-Alert, and gain such a positive response from both the judges and attendees at the ASIS Exhibition.

Recognised as one of the most innovative solutions for 2016 – The Vismo-Alert Wearable button is a personal alarm system that connects to the Vismo Smartphone Application via Bluetooth (Panic Button requires the installation of the Vismo application). The Vismo-Alert overcomes the need for the user to unlock their device when activating the Panic Button; providing the designated response team with a fast way of alerting users in the event of an emergency.

We had a brilliant time with everyone at the ASIS 2016 Security Exhibition in Orlando and look forward to exhibiting at the ASIS 2017 Security Exhibition in Milan, March 29-31.

Vismo Wins ASIS Accolades 2016 Security’s Best Winner Award

ASIS-Accolades-Winner-BadgeThe Vismo Team are delighted to announce that our Vismo-Alert has been chosen by the ASIS International organisation as a winner of the 2016 ASIS Accolades Security’s Best competition, which recognises the industry’s most innovative new technologies, products, services and solutions. A team of judges representing end users and technology experts evaluated all entries before selecting the Vismo-Alert as one of the most innovative solutions for 2016.

As experts suggest, it is important that during a crisis situation, an activation of a Panic Button remains a largely covert exercise and that any device that is noticeably in an “alarm” state can be detrimental to the safety of the user. The Vismo-Alert achieves this as it overcomes the need for the user to unlock their device when activating the Panic Button. When pressed, the Vismo-Alert uses Bluetooth technology to initiate a Panic Alert remotely on the Vismo smartphone application, allowing for a faster, covert and safer response.

Vismo-Alert-hgh-resThe Vismo-Alert can be worn on the wrist, belt and pendant or carried loose with the options of stealth mode, fall detection and disconnect alert. Multiple Vismo-Alerts can also be connected to a user’s smartphone, meaning that Vismo-Alerts could be left at strategic locations such as inside a vehicle and/or building.

Vismo has taken advice from Industry Experts in kidnap and hostage scenarios and the developments made reflect the company’s commitment to improving the safety of its customers.

“We are thrilled to receive The ASIS Accolades Security’s Best Award and have our Vismo-Alert recognised as one of the most innovative solutions for 2016” said Colin Dale, Business Development Director of Vismo.

Vismo awarded patent for GPS tracking technology

Vismo awarded patent for GPS tracking technology

York, UK. Vismo, the Global Tracking Solutions specialist, has been awarded a patent for its technology for GPS tracking on mobile devices. The company previously had a patent pending and has now secured a full patent for its unique operation.

The awarded patent, GB2470376, specifically covers the design behind the algorithms and innovative operations of the Vismo tracking software to optimise location accuracy with minimal battery drain.

The algorithms use a combination of metrics from the phone such as speed, GPS, network information and cell tower locations to determine optimal accuracy for locations from the device, without incurring the large battery drain usually typical of GPS tracking applications.

Fundamental to the approach is how Vismo utilizes the functionality of mobile devices, minimising the use of navigational sensors by placing them into hibernation between pre-determined intervals and using environmental information to quickly locate a device without lengthy GPS warm-up periods. Ultimately, this produces a chronological ‘trail’ following a user’s location point-by-point on a map.

Colin Dale, Business Development Director at Vismo says, ‘We have always prided ourselves on the unique operation of our app and we are delighted to be recognised as owning the technology. One of our key USPs is maintaining such comprehensive and accurate international tracking while stretching battery life as much as possible.’

Vismo is available across all major mobile platforms including iOS, Android and Windows. For more information visit www.vismo.com.
