What is LBS?
Using LBS when an employee activates a personal alarm, co-workers get a direct warning on their private mobile device by way of an alarm message containing the name and precise location of the colleague in distress.
LBS technology provides medical and industrial facilities and factories with the added security of a fully owned solution for direct localisation and back up for employees in distress. The solution runs on the CapX Private GSM communications-infrastructure and is supported by two-way speech communications. LBS ensures that you know where your employees and medical equipment are in case of an emergency.
The alarm message is delivered as a ‘high alert’ message and has to be accepted or declined.
Because of this logging functionality within the LBS solution, insufficient positive responses can automatically initiate an escalation procedure notifying a predefined group of co-workers.
Notification can take place based on presence in the near vicinity of the victim. This capability is contrary to traditional notification, which is based on a predefined schedule. With LBS it is “Who is actually close by” instead of “who should be close by according to the roster”?
This reduces response times and minimizes the risk significantly.
Notification using a client on fixed phones (IPT client) Alarm notification on both mobile devices and fixed (IPT) phones,
all notifications even the alarm notification messages presented on the screen of the phone, can be interactive and have to be accepted or refused. This means that even back-office employees can be part of an escalation group.
Floor plan application (MAP client)
Because it can easily happen that co-workers when notified are in different buildings or outside somewhere of the premise, a dynamic floor plan showing presence and location can be placed next to the entrance of the building (or nurse station) enabling the emergency situation to be visualised. This further reduces response times.
Desktop client (DT client)
A personal alarm initiates a screen pop-up on a desktop PC with the name and key information such as photo and blood type plus details of the location of the co-worker.
