TECHNICAL POINTS

Home > FAQ > TECHNICAL POINTS
  • The “proximity” distance for mySOS angels is set at  3km around the victim in the beta version (this distance will be reduced once the angels’ network have gained enough density).
  • Geo-localization of mySOS angels : a geo-localization “peack” is sent every 5 minutes to allow for up-to-date network mapping (while avoiding the excessive battery consumption currently induced by continuous geo-localisation).
  • mySOS alerts only work if the smartphone is connected to the Internet (implying a GPRS/EDGE/3G/4G or Wi-Fi signal).
  • mySOS alerts will geo-localize the victim only if the geo-localization option is activated on the smartphone. Similarly, a mySOS angel can only be geo-localized if this option is activated on his/her device.
