MicroGuard® is a compact and lightweight lone worker alarm, certified to BS 8484:2016 standards and Secured by Design.
Combining the latest GPS, GPRS and fall alarm technologies, MicroGuard provides lone workers with discreet and convenient protection at the touch of a button.
Exclusively developed by Guardian24, MicroGuard is one of the most advanced and compact GPS safety devices available in the UK.
The flexible design of MicroGuard allows it to be discreetly worn in a variety of ways; as a pendant, attached to a belt, keyring or identity card holder.
“Our engineers clip the devices to their belts meaning they are completely hands free at work, none of their activities are affected”.

How it Works
Alarms can be raised by simply pressing the SOS button which connects to our 24/7 UK based Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC), certified to BS 8484:2016 and BS 5979 (Category II).
Our ARC controllers will be able to view the device’s GPS location and the user’s pre-registered emergency information, including escalation procedures and contacts.
Controllers will listen-in and if it’s safe to do so, talk to the user. Utilising all the information available our Controllers will manage the incident; contacting the emergency services and/or the organisation’s nominated responders. MicroGuard features a voice memo button, allowing the user to leave a pre-alert message with details of where they going and who they are meeting – our Controllers are able to listen to message should an alarm be raised.
When enabled, the fall alarm feature will automatically raise an alarm to our ARC if the user slips, trips, or is knocked unconscious. This optional feature can be permanently enabled or switched on when required.
Guardian24’s web management portal allows the account administrator access to a suite of usage reports and GPS positions via online mapping software. These reports can be scheduled to run at regular intervals or generated manually whenever needed.
What Our Customers Say
“The devices are very reliable, we don’t have failures. They are also very easy to set up and use, making integration to our internal systems very simple.”
“The MicroGuard is a really user friendly device. It’s easy to operate and has great functionality.”
“We were impressed by the device’s ability to listen in and have two-way communication. It’s necessary for us that all staff can speak with a responder should something like this happen again.”
