Geonovo Ltd has invested several millions of pounds developing the Romad RSP-100 Personal Safety Phone, a simple to implement, easy to use and reliable lone worker device which has the potential to save lives. Those interested in this device should also view the four ArchAngel products we've recently launched.
Whilst primarily designed to provide protection for lone workers, the RSP-100 is also being used for equally important security and social care issues such as domestic violence, young people with autism, care for the elderly and for people suffering from Alzheimer's disease. It is also proving to be an extremely useful device for businesses to manage their workforce more effectively and improve customer service levels.
Existing high profile Romad users include the Probationary Service, Primary Health Care Trusts, Cancer Research UK, Dominos Pizza, Travelodge and York Minster.
The RSP-100 incorporates both GPS and GSM communication and tracking and as such is truly compliant with the British Standard 8484 Code of Practice. Of particular importance is the ability of the RSP-100 to comply with a key specification of the Code of Practice that a person carrying a Lone Worker Protection device should be able to be located within 10 metres and unlike some other systems the lone worker does not need to supplement a RSP100 with a mobile phone to meet BS8484 requirements.
The Romad RSP-100's small size and light weight, (it weighs just 62.5g with the standard battery attached), means it can be worn on a lanyard or clipped to a belt. It's strong build, high quality finish and simple operation ensures that the RSP-100 is more than suited for deployment in any environment.
Utilising GPS based technology which interacts with leading alarm receiving software or with Romad's own hosted monitoring software platform, the RSP-100 equips employers to know exactly where their lone workers are whenever they need assistance.
Simple, over the air commands are used to configure the device, providing pre-programmable speed dial numbers and a rugged SOS alert button. One of the pre-allocated speed dial numbers, for example, allows lone workers to leave a recorded message when they arrive at an appointment. This message is safely stored on the Romad server and can be quickly retrieved if the user is out of contact or if there is concern for his or her welfare.
Romad's ongoing R&D programme has resulted in a number of improvements and innovations which have been incorporated into the latest version of the RSP-100.
The RSP-100 is programmed by default so that users can only call certain numbers, i.e. speed dials and phone book numbers. It can, however, be remotely unlocked and locked to allow users to call it any number, much like a mobile phone.
The 1 to 4 speed dial buttons on the RSP-100 device can be programmed to perform either speed voice dialling or other commonly used functions such as time of arrival, time of departure, man-down activation and check GPS.
The RSP-100 supports multiple SOS voice dial numbers. If the primary number is not answered, the device will try calling all defined numbers until one is answered. Up to 4 SOS voice numbers may be defined.
The RSP100 can send data simultaneously to primary and secondary Alarm Receiving Centres (ARCs) as well as to the Romad Enterprise Server (RES).
Authorised users have remote access to:
The man down feature allows lone workers to summon assistance when they might be unable to manually activate the SOS feature. A lone worker is able to activate the man down feature when required or they may decide to use it for the whole of their working shift.
The man down feature can be activated by simple configuration of the following parameters.
At the end of the interval period the device will prompt the user to press the green button to confirm that they are still safe. The device will prompt the user three times to confirm they are okay. After three failed prompts it will send a 'man down' alarm to the server.
For workforce optimisation, time & attendance and payroll applications. The RSP-100 can be used for shift monitoring by lone workers to signal the start, end and extension of a working shift. This feature allows a user to signify that he or she has started a working day and also how long their working day is expected to run. The device can be configured to ask the user to confirm they have finished the shift which the user can then confirm or indicate that they are continuing to work. If the end of shift reminder is ignored, the device will inform the server.
