Inovonics Adds Mobile Duress Function to Pendants
Inovonics says mobile duress seamlessly integrates into an end customer’s existing physical security infrastructure and is easy to install and cost effective to deploy.
LOUISVILLE, Colo. — Inovonics, a provider of wireless sensor networks for life safety applications, announces the launch of Inovonics mobile duress, designed to provide precise indoor room and floor level location when someone activates an Inovonics pendant.
Built upon the Inovonics Cloud platform, the solution marries Inovonics hardware with powerful software and API tools for easy integration and data access, according to the company.
“Inovonics has provided dependable duress systems to schools, hospitals, municipal facilities and other commercial properties for decades,” says Scott Fincher, senior product manager at Inovonics. “With our launch of Inovonics mobile duress, the security industry finally has the accurate indoor location solution it’s been waiting for.”
With mobile duress pendants, or panic buttons, security systems can easily associate a fixed pendant with a specific location upon installation.
However, determining indoor location when someone activates a body worn pendant has been significantly more problematic and cost prohibitive, and cellphone apps can help pinpoint location through the use of GPS technology, but GPS cannot distinguish between floors, and it takes precious time for someone to access and activate a phone app, Inovonics states. In such situations, responders may know a problem exists, but not know where.
The Inovonics mobile duress system is said to solve this problem by delivering an innovative location solution for responders so that they know precisely where to go in an emergency. Inovonics mobile duress seamlessly integrates into an end customer’s existing physical security infrastructure and is easy to install and cost effective to deploy.
Available through select security dealers, Inovonics mobile duress works in concert with any existing security system, sending location details directly into a central station monitoring, access control or any other IP-based application.
