News: Connexion2 enhance lone worker device


Rotherham-based Connexion2, will showcase a new breed of lone worker solutions at an industry event next month.

Established in 2003, the Dinnington company has gone from strength to strength, winning numerous awards and achieving a portfolio of Blue Chip companies and organisations in a wide range of market sectors including public and private healthcare, social housing, utilities, facilities management, retail and transport and logistics.

Its Identicom system is designed to look like a normal ID badge but allows lone workers to raise an alarm, make an emergency phone call or send a text message.

At IFSEC International 2013, Connexion2 will be exhibiting the enhanced functionality of both the Identicom 877c, the first dedicated lone worker device to feature a camera function, and a dramatically improved Identicom mobile smart-phone application.

Both allow lone workers to share information to assist ancillary activities when working remotely. This includes uploading a picture of a point of interest to the community's platform, tagging a specific risk or location, or visually reporting on the progress of current operation.

The camera is an addition to other features which include two-way audio, GPS and "Man Down" detection, which automatically sends a "Red Alert" in the event of a user being incapacitated due to a slip, trip or fall.

Craig Swallow, managing director of Connexion2, said: "We're delighted to be in a position to unveil the first dedicated lone worker device to feature a camera. I've always wanted Connexion2 to be at the forefront of innovation in the lone worker market, I think the Identicom 877c is testament to that. Clearly, any camera-enabled device should be used responsibly and should be supported by a lone worker policy.

"We are also proud of the fact that all Identicom products are designed and manufactured in the UK."

Whilst predominantly used in the UK, Connexion2 has developed a number of key overseas partnerships around the world in countries including the USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand as well as nearer to home in Germany, Spain and France.
