Set an invisible fence
A Geo-Fence is an invisible boundary. Our Alarm is capable of creating a geofence/virtual fence or a perimeter around the alarm devices’ physical location or separate specific physical location.
A geofence is a “virtual geographic boundary, defined by GPS or RFID technology,” according to the Oxford dictionary. Think of a geofence like an invisible fence. When a the Lone Worker Device crosses the “fence,” the geofence triggers a response, sending an SMS to the nominated contacts. Essentially, geofences use GPS tracking to trigger responses that send alerts to contacts when users enter or exit the geofenced territory. Geofence accuracy depends on environment that may effect the GPS signal.
Do you have employees or contractors that wander? Fortunately, we may be able to assist with this problem. One integrated technology within this alarm that is currently being used to track wanderers is geofencing. Using GPS technology, geofencing can alert Employers if their staff or contractors go beyond the invisible boundaries put in place.
If you are an employer and want to know that someone remains within a certain location like a worksite, a geo fence can be set to send an alert if the alarm has sensed it has moved outside of the invisible fence. Typically geofencing is something that only works outdoors for areas greater than a radius of over 100m, utilizing GPS technology. This invisible fence can be set around the radius of a worksite, around a street or even a suburb or city. Alternatively, you can set the fence to do the opposite; for example if you don’t want a contractor wandering to a certain building, or even a salesman going to territory they are not supposed to, you can geo fence this off, so that if the alarm detects entering this zone, it sends an alert to the employers.
Without this technology, locating a wandering staff member or contractor could go undetected. With a personal GPS tracker, location finder- locating a wandering individual can be accomplished within minutes
