Two-way radios now have the capacity to do so much more than simply transmit voices. Your radio can help you to be safer even when working alone. The Lone Worker radio feature allows you to know that even if an accident happened your radio will put out a call for help, giving you the peace of mind that you need in your work.
Be safer alone
In situations where the radio user is working alone, safety and communication is essential.
The Motorola Professional Series radios provide the user with a number of ways to be safe whilst working alone.
An orange button on the top of the radio can be programmed to raise an alarm to other radios or a base station. The identity of the person or radio activating the emergency is also shown on the display of the receiving radio(s) if display radios are used.
Lone Worker feature
By activating the Lone Worker feature on the radio, a timer within the radio measures inactivity and will automatically send an emergency call if the timer is exceeded. The user is warned with an audible tone before the alarm is sent.
Lone Worker and Emergency with Voice Storage
In conjunction with the Lone Worker and emergency feature, it is possible to fit an option board to the radio to provide a voice record facility. The user records a voice message of where they are working alone. This message can be sent out if the Lone Worker or Emergency alarm is sent to other radios. Therefore, other radios get an emergency alert and the recorded message detailing the person's location, enabling faster response times.
A Man Down option board for the radio will detect if the radio is tilted between 30 to 60 degrees for a set period of time thus detecting that the user has perhaps fallen unconscious or is injured. This will activate the Emergency call shown above. The user is warned with an audible tone before the alarm is sent. This feature cannot be used with the voice storage option board.
