App Support

If your phone has a signal and you've connected your Assure band with the app it you can call for help and your responders will be told your location.

We are excited to get your thoughts on the apps. Like all innovation we know there will be improvements to be made but if you'd like to try it and give us feedback, we'd love to hear it. To find out how to try the app for your phone please click on the tab below.

How the app works

With the Acticheck app installed and your smartband linked you can GoAnywhere and have all the confidence that the Assure gives you at home.

Rather than loading the band with all the technology that you already have in your phone the app enables you to share the geo-location and data capability of your phone to continue to deliver alerts, fall monitoring and wellness checks wherever you have phone coverage.

The phone uses tiny amounts of data from your data plan. Most people will not even notice the 2MB of data usage a month and we have also been careful to conserve your phone battery.

We do need you to give the Assure app the following permissions:

  • location so a responder knows where you are
  • Bluetooth so your smartband can talk to the app
  • Mobile data, so the system can communicate with the wider world
  • The mobile phone number of the device which will be shared with a responder in the event of an alert

We recommend that you leave the app running at all times. It uses only a small amount of the phone battery and will be available when you need it.

Your band will remain connected to the app until the Bluetooth connection to the app is unavailable when it will try and reconnect to your base.

When connected to the app your latest location will be shown on your MyActicheck web page. If you raise an alert the location will be provided to your responders as a link to Google maps in an SMS and email.

  • Dear Android user,
    You will be aware that there are many different Android phones and updates and they all work in a slightly different way.

    We use a combination of the latest Android features and can't guarantee that the app will work resiliently on every phone. To arrive at a definitive list we would need to test the app on every combination of phone and Android version and we just can't do that; but we hope you can help.

    If you are willing to try the app and give us feedback we hope to build a list of phones that the app works resiliently with and those that are less reliable. We can then share this information within the Acticheck community.  

    As we are testing this with you we don't want to put the app on the PlayStore but if you are willing to try it out please follow the steps below.

    For the app to work the phone would ideally be running Android 6.01 (Marshmallow) or above, although some (not all) instances of Android 5 (Lollipop) have been seen to work OK.

    1. From your Android phone click here to download the latest app (1.1MB).
    2. In your Notifications bar you should see an arrow downloading: once this has stopped swipe the notifications bar down
    3. Click on the APK which has just downloaded.
    4. You should be asked if you are sure that you want to open this app as it has not come from the PlayStore and there will be instructions on what to do to grant permission.
    5. When you have given permission Install the Acticheck app.
    6. Open the Acticheck app
    7. Confirm your phone number.
    8. In a few seconds you will receive a SMS Text message which ties this number to your account.
    9. The next screen shows a picture of an Assure smartband next to an ‘Internet globe’ Icon. Click on Settings below the band.
    10. Click on Pair Band.
    11. On the next screen click on SCAN. Whilst the phone is scanning an orange box will rotate.
    12. While the Phone is scanning hold your band facing upwards (orange towards the floor) and press a single button for up to 10 seconds.
    13. When the Phone sees the band it will show a picture of an Assure band on the screen along with its unique code, Click on the picture.
    14. When asked ‘Do you want to save this band?’ click on SAVE.
    15. Click on the Back arrow (top left) which says ‘HOME’ next to it.
    16. Now go back to the home screen where both the Assure band and Internet globe icons may have a tick below them. If not press a single button on the band and after 8-10 seconds the band icon will turn to a tick followed shortly by the globe.

    Please drop us an email to support@acticheck.com, stating 'App Trial' in the subject line. If you can also let us know what phone you are using that would be great. This means we can let you know if we improve the app and can also come back to you to ask your experience of trialling it.
