Out Of Hours Services
This system is suitable for lone workers at low risk in a fixed environment. The dispersed alarm works through having an alarm fixed to the existing telephone line where the worker is situated. At the press of a button, it will open a speech path to the control centre, where operators can then summon help or provide reassurance. Typical users include home workers, those in remote, isolated buildings and workers who work overtime on their own.
This system is suitable for a group of workers who work in separate rooms in a building with medium risks. The system works through a dispersed alarm supporting up to 32 individual lone workers, who are able to summon support by pressing the pendant. In addition, an overlay network can be installed to support more users. In the event of an emergency, the control centre will receive a call, and this will identify the worker in need of assistance. At the same time, the on-site base station will also be alerted, and the control centre will inform the base station controller as to the name and known location of the activation, enabling support to be sent to that person. Typical users include staff in a school, workers in a residential home, hospital wards and health centres.
This system is suitable for mobile workers with low risks. It is an automated system using PIN identification, where the worker is able to call the control centre and log their location and the duration of visits. The system will automatically call the worker after the agreed time, and if there is no response, will sound an alert to activate the agreed escalation procedures. Typical users include social workers, care workers, wardens and environmental health officers.
This system is suitable for more vulnerable field workers at high risk from violence or accidents in remote locations. It allows the worker to press an alarm, which then opens two-way, hands-free audio communication to the control centre, allowing the control centre to hear what is happening at the workers location. It also provides accurate external alarm position locations (Global Positioning) and tracking in real time. Again, it works with pre-planned automated call back arrangements. Typical users include park rangers, community street teams and noise officers.
