Safe-halo’s status terminology explained:

Tracking Online Identifies a User has logged onto Safe-halo, and they have activated Safe-halo for tracking. The device’s location is being tracked.
  Lost Signal User has logged into Safe-halo, but the signal has been lost.

A few examples of how when this might occur:-
–  Where a device is left still for a period of time and the operating system has put all apps to sleep. To wake the device up one of the following must take place: 1) Movement must be detected by the device. 2) The device receives a push notification (from the management system or other source), an email message or a phone call takes place to wake the device.

–  Where a user has entered a black spot and there is no phone or wifi signal. The device continues to track the user’s position via GPS. When there is signal available, it will send location and status data back to the website.

  I Need Help The User has activated the “I Need Help” alarm.  Emergency push notifications, SMS’s and emails will be sent to the nominated parties notifying them of the incident.
Note: Safe-halo will start tracking if the alarm is set.
  Watch Me The User has activated the “Watch Me” alarm.
Note: Safe-halo will start tracking if the alarm is set.
  Check In The User has set a Countdown or Check In Alarm on their device.
Note: Safe-halo will start tracking if the alarm is set.
Missed Check In The User has failed to Check in by the desired time (as set by the User.) Emergency push notifications, SMS’s and emails will be sent to the User’s nominated parties notifying them of the incident.
Not Tracking Online The User is logged into Safe-halo, but Safe-halo tracking is not activated or the device’s GPS is turned off.
  Offline The User is not logged into Safe-halo.
