Inovonics is a leader in high-performance wireless sensor
networks for commercial and life safety applications.

In the wake of two high-profile alleged sexual assaults at
New York City hotels, management officials are turning to
innovative wireless technologies to provide hotel staff with
portable emergency communications devices. Hotel chains are
now beginning to require staff to carry “panic buttons” which
will allow employees to quickly and easily alert and summon
security officials for help should an incident occur. The
panic button includes sensors that are modeled after medical
alert buttons for the elderly, allowing housekeeping and
other hotel staff to quickly alert security should the need
WHAT: arise.

Workplace safety is increasingly becoming a top priority for
both employees and employers. According to research from the
Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network (RAINN) every two
minutes someone in the United States is sexually assaulted.
(http://www.rainn.org/statistics) In response, employers
are developing workplace violence protection programs, which
include the use of silent and personal alarms, the
establishment of an emergency communication system, and the
implementation of rules to protect employees from risk of
assault. Wireless pendants increasingly are popular due to
the mobility, low cost, reliability and inconspicuous
features that allow employees to alert security officials of
HOW: an incident with the simple click of a button.

With millions of wireless devices installed worldwide,
Inovonics wireless pendants are field-proven and offer the
reliability and flexibility employers need to help guard
their company’s most valuable assets, their employees.
Employees are seldom stationary and often require personal
alarm pendants as they roam throughout a facility, such as a
hotel or resort area, or even into a parking lot. Inovonics
wireless security solutions have a proven history of
safeguarding employees using personal alarm pendants that are
easy to use and designed to go wherever the employee may be.
In addition to roaming panic alarms, pendants can be worn on
a necklace, belt clip, wristband, or mounted in a fixed
location.

Mr. Jarman is available to discuss the latest advancement and
trends regarding wireless pendants for employee safety
applications.
