Guard Force Security Protector is not a substitute for calling the police or for calling (911). In the event of an emergency, users are advised to call the police or 911, as Guard Force Security Protector should not be used as the primary source for an emergency assistance call. Guard Force Security Proector is an optional back-up alert notification system that users may use at their discretion. As with any cell phone usage, certain factors (such as signal strength, type and quality of your phone carrier, and dead spots) can affect the GPS locator accuracy.
