New product alert: SPOT X from Globalstar


SPOT X satellite device for remote workers

We’ve got a new entrant in our stable of dedicated lone worker safety devices: Spot X. It’s the latest in satellite technology from Globalstar, a company with which we work closely. Spot X comes into its own when mobile phone signals may be weak, intermittent or non-existent. In such instances, smartphones won’t be enough to get lone workers emergency help should they need it. So it’s Spot X to the rescue.


A satellite device for when mobile phone signal lets you down

Spot X provides two-way satellite messaging. The device provides powerful communication in a crisis and allows Safe Hub Alarm Receiving Centres (ARCs) to locate lone workers if the worst happens. Deploying GPS technology, the device automatically sends the user’s location information to the ARC at 10-minute intervals. This information can be accessed by ARC operatives in an emergency, if the worker triggers a Red Alert.


Spot X is automatically fitted with our Red Alert and Yellow Alert features. The SOS button allows users to call for immediate assistance should they need it with our Red Alert feature. In an emergency the user simply presses and holds the SOS button to raise an alarm. They are immediately connected with an ARC operative who will have access to their personal profile and GPS location. The call will be recorded, and can include discreet panic words.


The other pre-set feature is Yellow Alert. Users can leave a voice message, advising ARC staff that they are entering a potentially hazardous situation. In an emergency the ARC will access the recording along with the person’s last known location, dispatching emergency support if needed.


Deploying Spot X in your organisation

For lone and vulnerable workers who operate in more remote areas where mobile phone signals are weak or intermittent, Spot X is ideal. It’s durable and designed for extreme conditions. For instance, the device would suit surveyors or safety inspectors who are often in the field or operating in mobile phone blackspots.


Globalstar is the company that designs and builds the Spot X satellite device. The company has a low-orbit satellite network, which allows connectivity beyond cellular phone technology. This means that, unlike conventional mobile phones, their satellite devices don’t rely on terrestrial infrastructure. And as a result, they have practically limitless coverage in the UK, North America and beyond.


Gavan Murphy, Director of Marketing EMEA at Globalstar, says: ‘Ensuring the safety and welfare of staff is high on the agenda of both corporations and public organisations. Together – Spot’s reach enabled by Globalstar’s second-generation satellite network, and Lone Worker Solutions’ platform – we are helping providers of key services to improve the welfare of their team members.’
