Additionally, STRIKE can alert on over 100 other hazardous weather events. Upon in-app purchase, your Android device will “wake up” with alerts and also track your location to warn you wherever you go. This vital sports application is designed with administrators, coaches, players and parents in mind. Be warned of impending lightning and severe weather per NCAA and National Federation of State High School Associations standards, among others.
STRIKE harnesses the power of the ENTLN lightning network and combines it with WDT’s patented alerting engine to deliver instant notifications whether you’re on or off the field. Lightning alerts are sent when a lightning strike is first detected within 6 miles of your location and an all clear is sent when no lightning is detected within that range for 30 minutes. These distance rules are recommended by lightning experts and adhered to by NCAA, NFHS, and other sports associations to ensure safety while outdoors.
