Knox Guardian's primary function is aimed at preventing dangerous situations by helping individuals check in with friends, family, Campus Safety, or others and, when necessary, connecting individuals directly to Campus Safety or other first responders with the touch of a button.
Download the Rave Guardian App from the Google Play or iTunes stores.
With the Knox Guardian app, you can:
With the Safety Timer, your status and location are available to those you trust. Set it up when you are heading somewhere unfamiliar, meeting with someone you don't know, or any other time you would like someone to check in with you. Your Guardians will be notified if your timer expires. Remember to deactivate it when you are safe.
During an active Safety Timer session, you can update your location and status to your Guardians so they can check in on you. Your Guardians will be notified if your timer expires. Remember to deactivate the timer when you are safe.
Your Guardians look out for you, and you look out for them. Add and message Guardians just like you do with your Contacts. You can easily communicate directly or via group messaging with those you trust -- including the ability to send photos.
Just like you can invite someone to check in with you, you can return the favor. When one of your Guardians sets up their own Safety Timer, you will be able to see their time, location, status, and also call or text them right away if their Safety Timer expires.
This tool ensures that Rave Guardian's functions are always readily available no matter where you are in the app. Just tap or pull up the shield icon, and you can navigate between your Safety Timer, Guardians, and Emergencies fluidly without having to go back all the time.
