How it works

What is the AllsWell Alert App?

AllsWell Alert is a personal safety & emergency alert app for people living, commuting, or traveling alone. It combines the panic button functionality with inactivity monitoring, enabling the app to send your emergency contact an alert with your location even when you cannot press a button.

Thanks to its extensive configuration capabilities, this safety alert app is universal. You can install it if you are a woman seeking advanced personal safety or a senior spending a lot of time on your own. It's also suitable for kids, lone workers, and anyone else who wants more security in their everyday lives.

The AllsWell personal safety app costs $10/month and has a 30-day free trial, so it's more than affordable.

Core Safety App Features: Safety Alarms and Inactivity Monitoring

The AllsWell Alert personal safety app offers the best combination of passive and active alert features. While other solutions focus on alerts triggered with a panic button, our app also works when the user cannot reach the phone. It increases users' security and makes the application helpful in a broader range of life-threatening situations.

Learn more about the core functionality of the AllsWell safety app below.

Safety alerts activated with a panic button

After you install the AllsWell Alert app, it will power your phone with a panic button. This button works similarly to the panic button in personal safety devices like wearable keychains or lockets.

Once you feel that something threatens your life or meet the danger face to face, you can reach your phone to tap the panic button in the app. When activated, the panic button feature instantly sends safety alarms to the selected emergency contacts. These may be your partner, friends, relatives, employer, or anyone else. The contacted people decide what to do next depending on the emergency. They can either rush to help themselves or reach emergency services like 911.

The AllsWell safety app delivers emergency alerts via SMS and email. SMS notifications are generally considered the most reliable way to reach someone since they don't require an Internet connection and are easy to notice.

The main idea behind panic button alerts is that the user needs to activate them. It means that the person can reach the phone and take action. Even though it's possible in most risky situations, sometimes the person may be unable to tap the red button. That's when inactivity monitoring saves lives.

Inactivity monitoring based on the phone's motion sensor

While panic button alerts require user action, the inactivity monitoring feature delivers alerts automatically. It's a backup safety alert option for emergencies when the user cannot hit the panic button. For example, the person may fall, faint, lose the phone, become immobile because of the injury, etc.

How does the mobile inactivity feature work?

The app uses the movement detector embedded into the user's smartphone to track interactions with the phone. If the standstill exceeds the indicated time, the personal safety app reads this as a potential threat to the user. Then, the AllsWell app automatically delivers email, SMS, and push notifications to selected contacts.

The user still has five minutes to cancel the safety alerts if the app has sent them by mistake. Yet, the risk of a false alarm is minimized since you can choose the inactivity period based on your needs and phone usage. The phone counts down the time interval from the specified WAKE TIME to BEDTIME. Hence, it doesn't trigger inactivity alerts at night.

This feature is particularly handy for seniors living alone and family members who worry about their wellbeing. It allows you to monitor your loved ones without being intrusive. You can be sure that you'll be the first to know if anything bad happens.

Additional features to note

Besides the main functionality mentioned above, the AllsWell personal safety app has other helpful features, including:

  • GPS tracking. AllsWell supplements all safety alerts with the primary user's GPS location. This information allows the notified contacts to instantly locate the person in need to provide help. It is worth noting that the personal safety app captures the user's location 5 minutes before sending an alert to ensure privacy and extend the battery life. It doesn't track the user all the time without necessity.

  • Flexible safety alert settings. The user can choose whom on the contact list to notify and when.

  • International coverage. The AllsWell personal safety app is available globally so that anyone can use it. You can also install the app before traveling abroad to get additional security and stay in touch with your loved ones during a trip.

AllsWell Alert vs. Home Safety Systems That Require Installation

Safety apps are often used as an alternative to pricey home safety systems. Although their functionality and look differ, they both enable users to get help in emergencies.

Home Safety Systems

Home safety systems are safety devices consisting of a control panel, motion sensors, and surveillance cameras. The control panel is a computer that controls the work of all components of the security system. When someone enters a security zone, it turns on the alarm and informs the police or an alarm monitoring company about the threat.

If you decide to opt for home safety systems, be ready to pay for the installation. It is professional equipment that requires specific maintenance.

On the other hand, the AllsWell Alert doesn't require installation and is cheaper. Besides, while home safety systems cover only the areas where they are installed, the personal safety app protects you everywhere.

AllsWell Alert vs. Medical Alert Systems

There are medical emergencies when AllsWell Alert can save lives. Yet, generally, the personal safety app is not intended for medical use since it doesn't collect health information.

That's why we need to distinguish between the functionality and uses of AllWell Alert vs. medical alert systems.

Med Alert System

Medical alert systems are primarily designed for users with health issues, not for personal safety. These are either wearables with a panic button or specialized devices that track the user's health status. When a health issue is detected, or the user clicks the panic button, med alerts send an alarm to an emergency call center, medical personnel, or caregivers.

Whereas safety alert apps are suitable for everyone, medical alert systems are the most effective for seniors and vulnerable loved ones. Med alerts are also more expensive to purchase and maintain than apps like AllsWell Alert.

Hence, if you or your family members have serious health issues, you'd better consult with the medical team and get a recommended med alert system. If the user is generally in good health but needs some extra monitoring, AllsWell Alert is perfectly enough.
