Indoor Positioning – in Three Dimensions
Skyresponse totally unique, patented, indoor positioning solution pinpoints exactly where an alarm has been triggered in a large building. Skyresponse indoor positioning takes over when a person’s GPS position is not sufficiently accurate.
Unlike alarm solutions which show a two-dimensional position, i.e. at best the building from which the alarm originates, Skyresponse new indoor positioning shows, in text, the precise room and floor where the person triggering the alarm is located.
This is particularly useful in large, complex environments such as multi-story buildings, shopping centres, industrial buildings, hospitals, hotels or office complexes in which a two-dimensional position is unable to pinpoint exactly from where the alarm originates.

This is how it works
The solution consists of battery-powered beacons which are automatically located by the Skyresponse Personal Safety App when an alarm is triggered. The person triggering the alarm uses his ordinary mobile phone, so no expensive extra equipment is required. The response centre receives immediate information on the identity and location of the person triggering the alarm. Simultaneously, a voice connection is established to the alarming person so that the operator can hear what is happening.
Installation in a few minutes
The indoor positioning beacons are easily installed on the wall or hidden within the room where you want to have indoor positionering coverage. No external power supply is required. This makes installation costs only a fraction of the cost of competing solutions.
Skyresponse indoor positioning solution requires an iPhone 4s with iOS version 7.1 or later, or an Android phone with operating system version 4.3 or later. The mobile phone’s Bluetooth function and location (Location service) must be activated.
The range for Skyresponse beacons is normally within one room, but several rooms can be covered if the walls are thin. The individual beacons have an estimated operating life of at least 12 months before batteries must be replaced. Replacing batteries is simple.

Skygd becomes Skyresponse
Skygd has continued to grow and now changes its name to Skyresponse. The company’s services are already a fundamental element in many existing alarm and event handling solutions. The flexible approach based on cloud computing used by Skyresponse gives the company virtually unlimited possibilities to expand also into other market segments.
With a focus on Internet of Things, IoT
The number of connected products and sensors is growing exponentially. The services offered by Skyresponse are ideal in IoT applications where e.g. buildings and machines are to be monitored. In addition, many existing industries and products requiring alarm handling, such as security, care, transport and logistics, can leverage the new technology offered by Skyresponse.
The Skyresponse cloud based response centre solution is already in use at several manned response centres and operations centres. Skyresponse:system can also interoperate with many existing response centre systems and present alarm and events in a way that is familiar to the operator – and with complete traceability.
