RedAlert Fob

Our lone worker Fob is a discreet fob-shaped solution with GPS and 2-way audio functionality

Our RedAlert Fob is our smallest lone worker solution, available for workers where simplicity and discretion is highly important. Although this BS8484 compliant device looks petite, weighing in at just 35 grams, it’s feature-heavy with an impressive range of advanced technology usually found in bigger, more expensive solutions.

At a touch of a button, help is instantly available with GPS tracking and full 2-way audio support from our UK-based, fully accredited Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) team.

This low-cost, feature-rich lone worker Fob can be worn discreetly on a lanyard, strap carabiner, belt or key Fob to effectively protect the user without impacting their daily routine.

Red Alert Functionality

A dedicated Red Alert Fob button, which when pressed, puts the user in direct verbal contact with our ARC team, allowing real-time support and response.

GPS Accuracy

Advanced assisted GPS Positioning allows our operators to locate a member of staff and provide real-time positional information via our management portal.

Two-way Audio

In the event of an activation, two-way audio enables our trained operators to listen to the user’s situation. If safe to do so, our operator can talk with a user, providing reassurance that help is on the way.

Fall Detect

In the event of a fall from height, the service can trigger an alert which will be picked up by our ARC team.

Amber Alerts Functionality

Gives the user the ability to leave a precautionary message with our ARC team listing their location and last activity, so that we can listen back and investigate if a RedAlert is then raised.

Amber Timer Functionality

Similar to the Amber Alert functionality but with the added benefit of having a alert automatically triggered once a pre-configured time period expires.

Roaming Sim Card Capability

Access to all major networks is possible using the Fob’s roaming SIM, ensuring full access to areas where a particular network signal may have caused issues in the past.

Brighter Futures

“There are a number of key benefits to the lone worker solution we have chosen. The device is easy to use and not cumbersome. Leaving the amber alert is quick and simple and having the GPS tracking is a big bonus. The best asset of the device is its ability to be used discreetly. All our staff undertake lone working and conflict management training however, given that some of our customers can be unpredictable, a situation can still arise that a staff member is uncomfortable with.

Being able to activate the device without potentially escalating a situation is a huge bonus that gives our staff comfort and confidence when working. This was one of the main reasons we chose this device rather than a phone app which could be seen by a customer as threatening.”
