How to use the nitehero app
2. Press the SOS button
If you need acute help, don’t hesitate and press the SOS button in the nitehero app. When you press it, your phone will not vibrate or make any sounds. Nobody except you will know that you just triggered an alarm.
3. Countdown is running out
If you accidentally press the SOS button, you can cancel the alarm while the countdown is still running. Once the countdown is over, we will be informed immediately and 24/7 about your alarm.
4. SMS check-in
After the countdown is over, we will first try to contact you by SMS. Here, we do not refer to your alarm but only ask you how you are doing at the moment.
This way nobody will know from the SMS that you have triggered an alarm before. If you confirm that you need personal help or we do not receive an answer, we will immediately alert the police.
5. Personal help by police
When alerting the police, we point out that we are calling them on your behalf. We also remind them to never indicate on site that you called them via nitehero app.
Instead, we suggest that the police should e.g. refer to an anonymous tip from a neighbour.
