GBAR is pleased to announce a new member benefit through our partnership with SafeShowings LCC, to bring a mobile app that gives REALTORS® control of their safety in real time.
The safety and well being of our members is ALWAYS a top priority and this is the FIRST mobile proactive safety app of its kind. We we encourage you to implement and use this new member benefit in your real estate business!
During an Open House or individual showing, SafeShowings captures a facial image of anyone who is about to enter a property. It allows you to set a timer during a property showing and if an agent is unable end the timer, an alert is instantly and automatically triggered, after a 5-minute text warning before the timer concludes is sent to the agent as a disable reminder. SafeShowings protects agents and the homeowner capturing facial images of prospects. It also collects geolocation information from your phone. If there is an alert involved, SafeShowings will automatically send the stat to your emergency contacts.
SafeShowings is the first mobile proactive strategic deterrent, safety app of its kind. It captures a real-time image of the person or people to whom a professional, most often a lone worker, is about to show a property. The images are then uploaded to a secure location. If a user is unable to end a SafeShowings showing properly and within the allotted time, the application will immediately notify the user’s selected emergency contacts with the exact location and images of the person or predator. This is the only real-time, locale-entry strategic deterrent application that dissuades criminal behavior because the person intending to do harm clearly knows that they will get caught. The National Institute of Justice (NIJ) states that “Research clearly shows that the chance of being caught is a vastly more effective deterrent than even draconian punishment.” According to the NIJ, a strategic deterrent is the number one way to ensure that you and your employees are safe. A strategic deterrent is the last line of defense.
With SafeShowings, the user captures the following every time he or she enters a property:
• Contact names
• Cell phone numbers
• GPS location of the SafeShowings user
