The Mobile Sentinel is designed for use by security personnel, bodyguards, militia enthusiasts, and anyone else who might find it useful. Common uses are for managing groups or small unit tactics. The screen displays current GPS coordinates and current bearing (NSWE) and provided buttons will send SMS texts to a designated reciever. GPS coordinates are uploaded every five minutes to our servers and can be viewed via laptop or PC at gps.LogicAllSolutions.net/MT/Sentinel. Anyone can get their own subscription website and replace "Sentinel" in the website address with your organizations' name.
When not actively being used, the app will update GPS coordinates if the device's GPS is on. If the GPS goes idle or the coordinates don't change the app go into battery saver mode and hibernates until the user views the app again.
The app uses dark colors for night use, and three buttons send text messages to a designated receiver:
"Send backup" - message includes current GPS coordinates
"All clear" - sent by the CHECK IN button
"Investigating" = sent by the RECON button
Note that the buttons and messages can be customized.
