Lone-worker protection – Identicom mobile

Connexion2, manufacturer of the Identicom lone worker device (LWD), has launched a new version of Identicom mobile for use with Windows Mobile smartphones. Said to offer the majority of the functionality available on the standard Identicom LWD, this new version of Identicom mobile uses the touchscreen features developed by Microsoft for mobile operating systems, which is used by phone manufacturers including Samsung, Sony Ericsson, Motorola and HTC among others.

Like Identicom mobile for Blackberry, the Windows Mobile version is, says Connexion2, compliant with section 5.2.1 of BS8484 and is easy to install on all Microsoft Windows smartphones. It enables a user to obtain the necessary help if they become a victim of verbal abuse; attack or they feel their safety could be compromised.

As all versions of the Identicom mobile use the same interface and function terminology companies can use a mix of devices for their lone workers using the same communications policy, objectives and training.

Both versions of Identicom mobile have been specifically produced for lone workers who face risk infrequently and may not require the provision of a dedicated device, says the company. Identicom mobile is available as a standalone product or can be integrated with Connexion2’s new Online Tracking Application.
