    Indoor Lone Worker Alarms Solution

    The TWIG Beacon system is designed to locate distressed or injured persons inside areas where GPS is not reliable and other methods do not provide needed accuracy.

    TWIG personal alarms devices are located within a microcell network of RF transmitters, laid out to meet position accuracy requirements.

    Throw beacons in place with large-capacity integrated battery. Or plug in mains outlet with internal backup battery, for even lower maintenance. Over-the-air configuration facility makes setting up the system easy.

    IP67 water-proof housing allows installation in demanding environments.

    TWIG Integrator Kit resources enable integrating TWIG devices with alarm receiving centre (ARC) systems for complementary GPS plus TWIG Beacon positioning. Optionally the TWIG WebFinder SP software provides a turn-key solution for testing or deployment, with possibility to upload floor plans of customer premises.

    Lone Worker Protection
    Duty of care requires employers to give lone workers means to alert help. Depending on the risk assessment, a dedicated alarm device may be required. Automatic ManDown function can trigger the alert also in case the user in incapacitated, opening two-way voice to ARC and transmitting latest GPS and TWIG Beacon position information with timestamps.

    Personal Protection
    Whether VIPs or loved ones, TWIG products can provide improved safety through panic button, two-way voice and tracking of position. GPS position can be augmented through deployment of TWIG Beacons in premises of interest.

    Asset security
    Protect vehicles, motorbikes, construction machinery, boats, caravans and other mobile assets through motion watch and inclusion zones based on TWIG Beacon or GPS.
