Identicom models gain GPS location tracking capability

Connexion2 : 08 October, 2008  (New Product)
Accurate positioning capability for locating lone workers at risk is now included in the i757 and i777 models of the Identicom lone worker protection system from Connexion2
Identicom models gain GPS location tracking capability
Connexion2, manufacturers of the award winning Identicom lone worker device, has responded to customer demand for greater location accuracy for mobile workers and those at constant risk by adding the option of GPS (Global Positioning System) to two new Identicom models, the i757 and Identicom i777. Despite the units accommodating the new GPS technology and increased battery capacity they maintain the discreet look and feel of previous versions in order to ensure workers acceptance.

Available from November, the Identicom With GPS has been developed specifically for workers constantly on the move such as traffic wardens, district nurses, paramedics, logistics drivers and cash in transit operatives as well as those who operate in more rural locations e.g. forest workers, engineers, surveyors and utility workers.

With the standard Identicom devices, users press an amber alert button to notify their employer when they know they are entering a potentially hazardous situation. If they then have cause to press the red alert, operators at the remote monitoring centre retrieve the information on their locality, listens in on the line to what is happening and co-ordinates the appropriate emergency support - involving the police if necessary. The new GPS devices support this functionality further by pinpointing a worker's location to within a few metres and feeding current and last known positions at the same time that an audio escalation is being pursued.

As with existing Identicom devices, the worker is empowered to define the point when they want to be located, for example, when they feel their safety may be compromised and therefore want the reassurance of knowing that their location can be pinpointed.

"With increasing health & safety legislation there is even greater emphasis on employers safeguarding their employees", said Craig Swallow, Managing Director of Connexion2. "The new Identicom With GPS will enable us to assist many more companies and lone workers. Our focus has remained not on technology for technology's sake but on the user, their risk profile and the benefits we can help deliver for them and their employer."

Identicom With GPS is currently being sold and supported through SoloProtect a best-of-breed service for lone workers delivering peace of mind to worker and employer alike. For an all-inclusive price, the SoloProtect service provides the five core elements that are essential for a credible and complete lone worker solution. These include the Identicom device, SIM and inclusive airtime, face-to-face user training, 24 hour manned monitoring to BS5979 Cat II and Connexion2's unique TotalCare pre & post sale customer support. SoloProtect provides customers with an uncomplicated yet complete approach to pricing, implementation and use.
