LAS Can be Used as a Duress System

Scenario 1: Duress Alarm From any Handset to all Handsets on Site

Staff working alone or in high risk environments, need the protection of an integrated alarm function. A large easily accessible button at the top of the DECT handset or a specific Duress Pendant can be used to trigger a personal alarm in LAS.

Scenario 2: Man Down Alarm

If a person is attacked or falls to the floor for any reason, an emergency man down alarm is activates instantly.

Scenario 3: Pull Cord Alarm

Ideal for protection against theft, personal attack or for use in distress situations like hotel shower or bathroom emergency alarms.

Scenario 4: Personnel Locating

Locates staff on demand. Positioning beacons placed according to need and design throughout the facility log the location of the person as they move from place to place.

The LAS solutions for alarms and text messages are based using the DECT Data from the base stations located around the facility giving great flexibility and increased protection in these situations.
