Free text as a selectable feature

A feature that we are releasing is “Free text”. This feature will be selectable in our self-service portal. We have released the new version of Crystal Alarm for iOS and Android which means that Free text is now available for use. This feature means that users can easily add a descriptive text directly in the app. The text will be sent out in association with an alarm being triggered which makes it easier for the alarm receiver to make the right decisions. A descriptive text can for example be what a user’s status or job description is. It can also be where the person is located or what is to be done when this person triggers an alarm. Free text makes it possible to tailor an individual alarm plan which can be beneficial if you for example are located at special job sites. This feature will be available for all of our customers with access to the self-service portal. 

A smart thing to do is to prepare a text by using the microphone. Most iPhone and Android models automatically translate speaking directly to text.


Telia Crystal Alarm

We are very pleased to announce a collaboration between Crystal Alarm and Telia. As a result of this collaboration, Telia is selling our service under the name Telia Crystal Alarm. Initially, there is no difference between Crystal Alarm and Telia Crystal Alarm, but we are working together with Telia to develop new functions that with Telia’s mobile network will open up completely new possibilities for personal alarms. It is particularly convenient for those who have Telia as their mobile operator who in some cases can order the service as a supplement to the procured mobile phone subscription. Please visit Telia Crystal Alarm for more information.


Phones That Have Support For a Dedicated SOS-button

When you work in environments where accidents may occur or where staff works with lone work, it is extremely important that there are ways to send out alarms if an unexpected situation should happen. Crystal Alarm offers solutions to that problem by a personal alarm in your phone, and also offers the possibility to connect your personal alarm to an external button. It can often be easier to trigger an alarm from a button rather than having to unlock your phone. In today’s market there are even a few smartphones that have support for a dedicated SOS-button directly on the phone and we would like to inform you about these.

Phones that have an adaptable button or SOS-button and works well with Crystal Alarm are:

Samsung Xcover 4s – You can adapt the physical button on the side of the phone after your needs. In this case it can work as a SOS-button. The phone has a IP68-classification. 

Samsung Xcover Pro – A smartphone where the top button and the Xcover button can be tailored to a SOS-button by changing it in settings. The phone has a IP68-classification. 

Spectralink Versity 9640 – This smartphone is created for corporate use and has three different buttons that can be changed to a SOS-button. Although one of the buttons is already an SOS-button that is marked with red color. The phone has an IP68-classification and has many good features that can be combined with daily work. 

Cat S31 – Cat offers newer models than the S31, but we have as of now only tested the S31. We will test Cat’s newer models as soon as possible. The Cat S31 is a robust smartphone with IP68-classification. It offers long battery life and has a yellow button on the side of the phone adaptable to function as a SOS-button.
