Protection zone function:
The protection zone comprises of the radio covered areas of the locations which can be defined as "protection zone" in whose close proximity the radio cells of your mobile phone are situated. If the mobile phone plus PhoneGuard leaves this zone, because, for example, the child gets into the car of a stranger or the elderly person gets lost during a walk, the parents or the attending personnel will be alerted via SMS or a phone call.
The PhoneGuard protects your vehicles or any kind of mobile goods against theft. Whether earth-moving equipment, lorry, private car or motorbike the vibration sensor integrated in the PhoneGuard registers the movement of the object and immediately informs you via SMS or a phone call. If the object in question has been stolen, it can be accurately located via the Cell Information sent by the PhoneGuard within 100m in towns without needing a GPS!
The mobile phone battery will supply the PhoneGuard. Due to the little energy consumption, the stand-by time will reach several days. For long-term applications models with wide range DC and AC adaptors are available. The PhoneGuard has a "keep alive" function, which inform the user about actually status and battery capacity.
Listen to what is happening. In emergencies, the "listen" function will offer the possibility of listening to the noises surrounding the PhoneGuard. If this feature has been activated by SMS, the ring tone of the mobile phone is switched off and the PhoneGuard automatically accepts an incoming call as soon as you call the mobile phone.
