SoloProtect has launched a new range of intuitive touchscreen devices to bring an enhanced level of technology and design to the lone worker safety market.
The touchscreen range consists of three devices: SoloProtect ID Touch, SoloProtect Shield and SoloProtect Curve. Each device is feature-rich, instinctive to use, water and dustproof (IP67), and accesses 4G networks for comprehensive cellular connectivity.
Steve Hough, President at SoloProtect, says: “These really are the next generation of lone worker safety devices. They bring our offering up to date with global developments in technology and offer an icon-led interface that is much more akin to a mobile phone – something we all use instinctively.
“Because they’re so intuitive, less training is required, so, with an understanding of the functions facilitated by the device, users really can just ‘plug and play’. Therefore, if you currently have a lone worker safety solution but struggle with usage, a user-friendly touchscreen device could be the answer.”
All the new devices benefit from SoloProtect’s core safety features including Red Alert, Incapacitation Alert (sometimes known as a Man Down Alarm), and Check-In, along with 24/7 monitoring from SoloProtect’s industry-leading Alarm Receiving Centre.
However, they also feature Ready2Talk, a popular new service launched in 2021, designed to chaperone workers in situations where there’s an anticipated safety risk e.g. walking to a car at night past a group of people acting suspiciously.
Steve adds: “Our devices can enable a multitude of operational benefits, too. Our Latest Location feature allows managers to monitor the location of users to track the progress of work or facilitate redeployment decisions, and our Working Status feature allows a user to log when they’re on- or off-shift. All of this is visible in SoloProtect Insights, our online platform that’s pivotal to the implementation, administration, reporting and ongoing management of a solution.”
