We have everything you kneed to know so you can use SolusGuard like a pro.
Do the employees need a smartphone?
Yes, SolusGuard pairs with a compatible smartphone that has an active cellular and data connection. Contacts should also use a smartphone to ensure SolusGuard alerts work properly as notifications, GPS location, and inactivity can only be accessed through the SolusGuard app.
SolusGuard requires a smartphone with iOS10+ or Android OS 6+. We support all iPhones 5 and later operating on iOS10+. Most Android phones running Android OS 6+ are supported. To check if a specific Android phone is compatible, please send us a message at Tech@SolusGuard.com to confirm.
How much does SolusGuard cost? Are there monthly fees?
How long does the battery last?
SolusGuard will last for 3-4 days (depending on usage) before needing to be recharged. We recommend leaving the device on the charger when not in use.
Typical charging time for SolusGuard emergency alert devices is about two hours. A solid green light on the device indicate it’s fully charged. The simple magnetic charger is included with purchase of any SolusGuard package.
Is there a warranty?
Who can be a contact and are there any limits to how many contacts I can have?

How can the phone phone alert 911? Does it still work if the employee has an iPhone and it is in sleep state or locked?
After the employee signals an alert, if they do not receive and answer a phone call within two minutes, their SolusGuard device will instruct their phone to call 911. Our patented system follows protocol that will unlock an iPhone in sleep state. As long as their phone is in range and charged, 911 will be called at the end of the countdown, even if the phone has a passcode and is locked.
This is a major benefit of SolusGuard compared to our competitors. Look closely at their messaging—it is common for the fine print to indicate that the phone must be unlocked, or that contacts need to call 911. Calling 911 on someone else’s behalf, when you don’t know where they are or what is going on, is not advised.
Can the call go to a number other than 911? Can it be monitored by a security company?
What if an employee presses the button accidentally?
Can one SolusGuard device be paired with two smartphones so employees can share an emergency alert device?

What happens if the phone paired with SolusGuard shuts down or is out of cellular service range?
