Meets new lone worker standard
23 January 2013
The British Standard for Lone Working, BS8484, came into effect on 30th September 09 and will become a standard later this year. Connexion2 believes its Identicom and soloprotect ranges already exceed the BS8484 stand
Connexion2 believes its Identicom and soloprotect ranges already exceed the BS8484 standard.
The introduction of the standard sets a bench mark against which Lone Worker Devices (LWDs) and services can be measured.
Among other features LWDs are now required to possess the functionality to initiate an audio connection to the alarm-receiving centre (ARC) and to have the capability to automatically retry that connection until an acknowledgment is received. They must also be able to receive a discreet signal from an ARC controller and contain an automated low battery warning facility.
Connexion2 is confident that it will be among the first to be awarded BS8484 accreditation.
