Advanced digital technology supports data applications, including Text Messaging and Email Services which enables text-format communication between radios and dispatch systems, between radios and email-addressable devices, and to remote PC clients attached to radios.

Man Down


The Man Down option will let you know if the radio has been tilted at a certain angle. This may happen for instance if the radio user has fallen over or is unconscious or injured. At this angle, or if the phone is horizontal, the alarm will be triggered after a warning is issued to the user.

Lone Worker


Through your digital two-way radios, you can have a support package to ensure all of your staff are within easy reach, in real time. By utilising the PTT on a two-way radio the user when notified presses and releases to confirm that they are OK if the user does not communicate within the pre-defined time the radio will then go into an ‘emergency mode’. Utilising a loud audible tone the radio will warn the user to respond, if they do not it will set the emergency procedure into play, the radio controller and other users will then be notified.

Job Ticketing


Job Ticketing is an extremely simple, yet efficient task management tool that allows dispatchers to create, assign and track tasks (job tickets) across the radio network. Jobs can be accepted, declined and finished by radio units by a radio button click or by a predefined text message. You can build reports to see how many tasks have been assigned their statuses within a time interval.
