SOS Button

This discreet and easy to use SOS button enables users to quickly get the support that they need, without any technical knowledge.

High Quality Audio

The powerful embedded microphone enables our Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) team to silently listen in to assess a user situation once an alarm has been activated. If the user requests a break in silence, they will then have full access to two-way audio conversation with our operator.

Online Customer Portal

Orbis Sentry, is our secure online customer portal for managing all aspects of your Lone Worker solution. From managing compliance, to maintaining and updating user information; this easy-to-use portal gives you the ability to manage your teams in real-time.

Amber Alert Button

Users can leave recorded messages with our ARC team that can then be assessed in the event of an alarm activation, providing our Alarm Receiving Centre with vital prior information. For example, this could include details of the activity that the user was undertaking at a certain time.

Amber Timer

For added protection, a countdown timer can be set when an appointment or task commences. If a user does not confirm their safety by time this expires, escalation procedures will automatically begin. This timer runs at both the ARC and on the device, which means that even if the device loses power or network, an alarm will still be raised.

Colchester Parking Case Study

“Orbis provide a great level of protection for our Civil Enforcement Officers who often find themselves in volatile situations with members of the public due to the nature of their job. Orbis Sentry is a great way to monitor and manage all of our officers across all areas from a single PC. The system is set up so it is simple to use and the weekly information displayed and reports it generates are a great performance indicator per individual. They have always gone above and beyond and been able to provide solutions to any issues.

The monitoring service that is provided is invaluable to our officers who often need the reassurance that they are protected whilst on patrol in known troublesome areas. This is not a service provided by all lone worker service providers but a necessary one for us. Simply, our officers could not go out on patrol without them and therefore they keep our parking operations across North Essex running. Good, constant communication from Orbis means we are always kept up to date on latest services and products available.”
