Hospitals, educational institutions, industrial sites, retirement living homes all have staff, clients, residents or students that could be anywhere on the property and suffer mobile duress. In any situation where someone needs help – the use of ‘panic’ or ‘help me’ buttons or pendants can be used to call for help, providing location information.
It might be staff who are in a high-risk environments or need others to help resolve a situation. It could be a student needing help on campus or a senior needing help in a hime. When this happens, we refer to it as mobile duress.
A speedy response is often critical in these circumstances. Knowing the location of the person needing help is crucial in providing the fastest response. So a system that can not only receive the alert but provide location based information when notifying respondents is key to a positive outcome.
