The app can be used to raise an alarm in the DN Nagar control room in emergencies.
Mumbai: The Mumbai Metro One Private Limited (MMOPL), which is operating line 1 (Versova to Ghatkopar), launched a new security app ‘Secucare’, which can be downloaded on android and IOS platforms, for raising an alarm to ensure passengers’ safety. Through the app, commuters can raise an alarm in case of any problem. The control room will be alerted once the alarm is raised. The security personnel in the control room will be able to track the exact location of the passenger through the application.
“The aim of the app is to ensure the travel safety of the passengers. Through this app, prompt action will be possible,” said Abhay Kumar Mishra, CEO at MMOPL. In case of any misbehaviour by the co-passenger, one can click on the app button, they can click pictures or shoot a video. The videos/pictures will get directly transmitted to the central security control room of DN Nagar. Later, the commuter will get a call from the control room to understand the nature of problem, who will in turn send the security response team at the approaching station to handle the situation.
The benefits of the app can only be enjoyed by smart phone users who can download the app on playstore. The app allows the control room to access the battery as well as network strength of the passenger’s smart phone.
