Lone Worker Solutions: Devices

Dedicated Devices

Each lone worker’s job function will carry with it specific risks inherent to their working scenario. Different scenarios will require a specific device suited to that situation. That is why we have designed LoneWorker Manager to be completely device agnostic. As well as smartphone, mobile and desktop apps, LoneWorker Manager also supports the widest possible range of dedicated personal safety devices on the market. This ensures that we can offer a completely customised solution for each line worker.

SOSFob

SOSFob is a lightweight, compact, waterproof and discreet device which can be used by any of your team members. It is connected to GPS (Global Positioning System), which enables the Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC), to locate your lone worker in the event of an emergency. SOSFob features:

  • SOS button with high-quality 2-way audio, allowing users to speak with operatives at the ARC.
  • Secondary call button that lets users leave a message on our platform that the ARC can access in an emergency.
  • Motion and shock sensors which can automatically raise an alert if a fall is detected.

SOSFob uses GSM (Global System for Mobile communications), which transmits mobile voice and data services and directly connects you to a state-of-the-art ARC. SOSFob has LED lights which let you know that the device is charged and connected to GPS. Designed to be user-friendly and convenient, the SOS Fob has a long standby time, rechargeable battery, and micro USB charger. SOSFob can be carried in a pocket, attached to a keychain or lanyard or worn on a specially designed, 3D printed badge for ultimate discretion.

Managing Multiple Devices

Multiple lone working scenarios will mean you need multiple devices, so, it’s essential to choose a system that will work across all of them. LoneWorker Manger features an easy to use web-based management system that supports an unlimited number of staff profiles. So you could have lots of lone workers, each doing a different job and requiring a different device but all administered through one management interface.
