Ascom personnel alarms for correctional facilities—always on duty 

A prison guard slips, falls and knocks himself unconscious. How can he possibly send an alarm to colleagues? If he were carrying an Ascom d81 handset, the device’s tilt sensor would automatically kick into action… sending an alarm to co-workers. It’s just one of the ways Ascom solutions maximizes safety for vulnerable personnel.

An Ascom personnel alarm is always on the alert… even when its user isn’t. Thanks to ‘no-movement’ and ‘man-down’ functions, a staff member’s mobile device will still transmit alerts, even when the user is unable to manually trigger an alarm.

  • Robust. Precise. Reliable. Ascom staff safety solutions

    An officer falls unconscious before sending an alarm. A guard drops her phone in the middle of a threatening confrontation. Another has his phone snatched away. Such events are thankfully rare. But when they happen, having an Ascom solution means alarms will still get through to the right people. That’s because Ascom personal alarm solutions feature ‘man-down’ and ‘no-movement’ functions. These automatically send alerts when users’ handsets have been inactive beyond a pre-specified time period, or when the handsets’ embedded sensor registers a sudden tilt. Handsets can also feature pull-cords that trigger alarms should the device be snatched from its user. But however they are triggered, all alarms can be escalated along pre-defined chains to colleagues and/or emergency response teams.  

    Fast facts

    • An Ascom staff safety solution features a ‘push-to-talk’ function. Users can instantaneously reach a group of colleagues and/or responders. The group can then listen in to the user’s handset, gaining a fuller picture of the unfolding situation.
    • Users can choose to trigger a ‘soft’ alarm that discreetly sends an alert to pre-defined recipients.
    • Ascom personal alarm solutions can be built on virtually any existing and/or planned infrastructure, and work with various technologies: DECT, IP-DECT, VoWi-Fi, cellular.
