SecuraTrac Introduces Next Generation mPERS Mobile Emergency Pendant

01/23/2017
With large resorts and hotels, it can be difficult for managers to keep track of their workers and their safety. To help hotels and resorts with this issue, SecuraTrac, a provider of mobile health and safety solutions focused on employee well-being, announced its next generation mPERS mobile emergency pendant, the MobileDefender Model S (MD-S). The model S (MD-S) was developed on the same platform as the MobileDefender and introduces new capabilities that will help to ensure the safety of those who use the MD-S and the SecuraTrac platform. 
 
Hotels and resorts can rely on the MD-S to relay information about employee locations while providing them with an instant connection to help if an emergency occurs. In addition to state-of-the-art location technologies, the MD-S also offers a built-in Fall Advisory capability. The MD-S can detect horizontal and vertical movement so if an employee falls on the job or is knocked over, he or she does not have to initiate a call for help. The MD-S will trigger one automatically. Leveraging existing SecuraTrac cloud-based location technology, the new MD-S adds the ability for Central Stations to respond to potential accidents.
 
To improve battery lifespan, the MD-S was designed with a new Wake-on SOS feature. Wake-on SOS gives this small, mobile PERS device the ability to last more than 30 days on a single charge because the device is off until the SOS button is activated.  This preserves the battery while enabling the device to turn-on, locate, transmit its location, and make the emergency phone call after the SOS is activated.
