The discreet personal alarm for lone workers


The perfect personal device for lone workers

SOS Fob is a BS8484:2016 Gold Certified specialist lone working device. Discreet, durable, waterproof and lightweight, it can be clipped into a specially moulded identity badge, or worn in an arm or belt holster, or carried in a pocket.


SOS Fob deploys two key technologies:

  • Global Positioning System (GPS) locates your lone worker in an emergency.

  • Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) allows workers to speak directly to operatives at the Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC).

​Roaming multi-network SIM

To maximise signal coverage even in areas of poor reception.  We can supply SOS Fob with a roaming multi-network SIM. This has been highly effective for major clients such as Centrica, Bristol Water, Essex County Council, NHS Trusts and Wessex Water, who collectively have over 10,000+ SOS Fob devices deployed across the country in rural and coastal areas.

SOS Fob 4G

The SOS Fob is now available in a 4G version, please ask for further details.


SOS Fob comes with lots of wearable accessories, so it fits perfectly and practically into your workers' lives.
