One of the most cost effective ways to provide your staff, students, patients or guests with a reliable way to signal for assistance wirelessly is RFID.
Distress button RFID tags can last over 8 years without needing a battery replacement. Furthmore the tags report their battery level to the RFID readers, allowing you to detect an issue due to the tag disappearing unexpectedly or the distress button being pushed. No worries about if it will work because the battery could be dead like a smartphone or bluetooth device.
These tags have been successfully used in schools to protect students from harassment. We've also done many health care facilities. Some track mentally unstable patients to keep them within "safe zones". Others use it to allow elderly residents to roam freely, yet maintain the security that if they need assistance from staff it's immediately available. Hospitals have also used these tags as a replacement for hardwired call buttons.
An often overlooked benefit of RFID Access Control Systems that use Active Tag technology is that you can instantly know who is still in the building in an emergency, and where they are. Details that can save the lives of employees and first responders.
With new United States regulations mandating certain facilities have adequate off-site mustering systems, 433MHz Active RFID solutions can make compliance pain-free and as easy as possible. We ensure mustering points are not dependant on resources inside the facility like servers or networking, as these may become unavailable in an emergency rendering the solution unusable.
Know everyone is safe when it's most important. Discover the possibilities for your facilities.
Passive or Active RFID badge systems can be used to automatically log certain employee activity similar to "signing off" you probably already do.
This allows you to streamline production be removing this manual and potentially forgotten step. These records can allow you to identify trends, compare productivity over time or between employees. You could also reduce the cost of recalls, say you find out a specific batch of parts given to certain workers were defective. You can recall specifically the items they worked on.
