Elpas – part of the Security Products Business Unit at Tyco – will introduce the Lone Worker Emergency Call Transmitter as part of its Emergency Call Solution on Stand D1100 at IFSEC International 2014, which runs from 17-19 June at ExCeL, London.
The Lone Worker Emergency Call Transmitter ensures that personnel who may be subject to attack or injury when operating on their own can send alerts about their situation such that responders may be dispatched to the exact location of the evolving security incident.
Using Elpas’ Real-Time Location System (RTLS) technology, the unit transmits real-time location data that identifies the name and location of the worker in need, which can then be used to manage emergency response efforts.
“In high-risk environments such as correctional institutions, petrochemical plants or other perilous environments, workers need to be able to transmit information on their location and situation as quickly and accurately as possible, even when under attack,” said David Fensterheim, vice-president of product management for Elpas. “The Lone Worker Emergency Call Transmitter is an integral part of our overall emergency call solution, providing precise, real-time data when it’s most needed.”
The transmitter is equipped with two emergency call buttons located on either side of the unit for manual, wireless duress alerting. Additionally, there is an onboard tilt switch and a pull cord for automatic alarm sending if a lone worker is knocked down, becomes unconscious or if the unit is taken from the victim by force.
The fully-weatherproofed call transmitter is designed to eliminate false alarms through the use of a dedicated front button that’s used to clear alerts.
