SMC Gateway - a world of opportunity
SMC Gateway brings you the opportunity to add value by creating custom solutions for your customers that offer automation and accountability. It will enable you to provide them with solutions to an infinite range of issues.
Lone worker safety solutions
SMC Gateway enables a radio user needing to use Lone Worker mode to specify how frequently the system should prompt a response from them.
Lone Worker is a pre-built SMC Gateway application, like all the pre-built applications it can be edited and customised. For example, alerts can be via any of the following methods:
- Radio text message
- Generating a voice file
- SMS text message to mobile
- Message to network enabled LED sign
For accountability, the system can record and track communications direct onto a device or onto a USB dongle.
Logic Wireless can also enable the SMC Gateway to interface with radios with a Man Down feature as a custom written option.
Enabling the radio user to determine the lone worker poll interval offers the client the potential to tailor the protection offered to the current task. With other systems changing the prompt frequency would require reprogramming the radios.
This function could benefit the health and safety of engineers in hospitals, universities etc. working by themselves on plant and equipment.
Note: If the client does not have a radio system they can still monitor lone workers using the SMC Gateway, a GSM dongle and mobile devices. For example, a care worker in the community could text to the SMC Gateway “I’m at Mr Jones for my 10am appointment”, text shows on screen in the control room and the system is programmed to send a text to the worker if they do not text in an exit message within a time window set by them, then escalate if they still do not respond.
