The panic alerting solution installed provides the staff with a fast method of alerting and locating and notify the senior response team to any emergency. The system allowing the staff member to stay in control of any situation and attending to the pupil’s needs.
The solution also allows vulnerable students to have a discreet method of alerting staff to incidents of intimidation or threats made against them, giving peace of mind to staff, students and parents.

Due to a strong 2017 result Zonith has achieved the highest credit rating AAA by Bisnode (former Soliditet A/S / Dun & Bradstreet Danmark A/S). Among all companies in Denmark only two percents have achieved the AAA rating.
Terrorist and criminal drone attacks on humans and public/corporate facilities are increasing rapidly. Therefore, ZONITH A/S and MyDefence ApS, are entering into a partnership, to offer a full solution, whereby humans and public/corporate facilities are prewarned about drone attacks.
Many places are at risk of drone attacks, carried out by entities with criminal intentions. Prisons are at risks of drones delivering drugs, weapons or mobile phones. Larger events, where many people are gathered, are at risk of being attacked by drones. Power plants, electricity and gas distribution networks are at risk of being attacked by drones. The list of threats attributed to drone attacks is long and continues to grow longer, the more sophisticated drones become.
The cooperation between ZONITH and MyDefence is focused on the detection and quick reaction to drone attacks. MyDefence delivers highly effective drone detection systems. Once a drone is detected, the alarm handling solution from ZONITH will ensure that staff on the ground are instantly notified about the attack and alerted as to where it is coming from. With this combined solution, it is possible to react instantly to any drone attack and resolve the situation effectively.
Regarding the cooperation, CEO of MyDefence Christian Steinø, says “With ZONITH we have found a partner who has built a large global distribution channel. Their channel partners are all involved in the delivery of security solutions to both public and private companies, prisons, airports and sports arenas. The alarm handling and secure communication portfolio of products from ZONITH complements our portfolio. ZONITH have a great reputation in the market and we are very much looking forward to working with them.”
CEO of ZONITH Kristian Hartvig Stiesmark reflects upon the cooperation, “Our company is specialized in providing instant alarm handling and staff protection solutions. For years we have delivered our security solutions into prisons, public safety institutions and other customers faced with complex security risks. Our customers have been asking us to provide drone detection as part of our installations and with MyDefence we have found a partner who can deliver the technology to detect drones.”

For several years, a Scandinavian prison has used the ZONITH Real Time Location System for alerting and positioning their guards via their Motorola MOTOTRBO radios – both indoors and outdoors.
ZONITH has recently completed a successful trial with the prison for a seamless extension of their existing Real Time Location System, that provides enhanced coverage outside the MOTOTRBO radio range. Now the prison is able to track vehicles transporting prisoners between sites, as well as being able to receive alarms from the guards in the vehicles.
Many test drives and alarm scenarios were conducted over a 3-month period, to ensure the robustness of the extension under varying demanding conditions, whilst demonstrating the seamless integration between the radio-based existing ZONITH RTLS in the prison and the GPS/GSM based extension outside the prison.
Additionally, the ZONITH RTLS control room display was optimized to ensure that control room operators in charge of monitoring prison transports are only presented with real-time information about vehicles when they are actually transporting prisoners.
After successful completion of the trial, the new system has been rolled out, with a number of vehicle tracking and alarming extensions added to enhance the existing ZONITH RTLS alarm and positioning solution at the prison.
The ZONITH Real-Time Location System is the only system that offers seamless integration of indoor (Bluetooth) and outdoor (GPS) positioning, that also offers seamless integration with a wide range of wireless devices.
Indoor positioning can be performed on all devices supporting the “always discoverable” Bluetooth feature, such as: TETRA radios, MOTOTRBO radios, Hytera radios, Kenwood NEXEDGE radios, ZONITH Bluetooth ID Badge and Android Smartphones with the ZONITH App.
Outdoor positioning can be performed on numerous GPS wireless device, including: Handheld/vehicle mounted GSM units, TETRA radios, MOTOTRBO radios, Hytera radios and Android Smartphones with the ZONITH App.
