Locate2 is an app for emergencies, threats, abuse, bulling, harassment, robberies, assaults, kidnapping, etc. that connects the user with their friends, family, protectors in these cases and in real time. By pressing an alarm button, the app starts recording the audio and sends it along with the location to the mobile number you configure. 

The website where all the information can be found is www.localiza2.es and it is a development of the Technical Department of the Andalusian Center for Studies.

Screen with emergency started

 

In an emergency, we have to open the application and press the button that appears in the center of the screen for 3 seconds. By doing so, the application will begin to record the sound and send notices with the recording and location by email and optionally an SMS alert to the people we have configured in Notices. These notices will be sent every 20 seconds with the new position and the file with the recording, which occupies a little less than 1MB. Something very positive is that even if we close the application, it will continue to send the warning messages, as long as we do not press the button to stop sending again. A recommendation for improvement, which could be useful, would be to incorporate a widget type shortcut or access from the notification bar. That would make it easier to open the application in an emergency situation.

If you do not have an Internet connection, a notice appears informing you that you will only send messages via SMS. When the Internet connection is reestablished, the sending via email is automatically resumed.

Battery consumption is very low and does not affect the autonomy of the terminal.

The tests have been carried out with a mobile phone with Android 5.1 operating system
