Once a staff member carrying a DMR handset leaves the building, the device will seamlessly switch to GPS tracking to cover staff in outdoor areas. Furthermore, GPS Geo-Fences were created to enable more specific outdoor locations when an alarm is raised, such as ‘car park’ or ‘exercise yard’.
All alarms can be viewed graphically via a touch screen device mounted in the guards room. When an alarm is raised a map will pop-up showing the location of the source, whether indoors or outdoors. In an emergency situation this gives security and management the ability to very quickly and easily locate all staff on-site.
