Ascom personnel safety alarms for shopping malls

Shoppers love the easy accessibility of the mall. But it is also this accessibility that leaves staff vulnerable to abuse, theft, and even physical assault. But there is a proven way to maximize staff safety—without compromising efficiency or the shopping experience. With an Ascom personal alarm solution, staff are only a discreet button push away from help.

Knowing that help is always at hand helps build confidence and morale. It’s particularly important for shopping mall staff. They often work alone in large facilities with complex layouts, and must interact with a high traffic of shoppers. So having a personal alarm system—such as those from Ascom with ‘man-down’, 'no-movement’ and automatic positioning—is an operative necessity.

  • Safer staff means more productive staff

    Ascom personal alarms provide so much more than conventional alerts. In fact, thanks to ‘man-down’ and ‘no-movement’ functions, an Ascom system can raise the alarm even when the sender is incapacitated. Accurate positioning is also available. This lets responders locate the origin of an alarm, often with room-level accuracy. Personal alarms can also be integrated with fire, refrigeration and other technical alarms. Moreover, Ascom solutions are open, modular and technology- and vendor-independent. They integrate with virtually all existing infrastructures and third-party systems. And are backed by Ascom’s extensive after-sales services that include training, scheduled maintenance, around-the-clock support and software updates.
