Identicom was developed in the UK following two years’ research into the issues faced by lone workers and the needs of their employers. Identicom is simple to use, extremely effective and most importantly is always there for the worker.
Deliberately designed to look and feel like a normal identity (ID) cardholder, Identicom is always within immediate reach should an issue arise. Identicom uses mobile phone technology but, unlike a phone, it can be activated discreetly, avoiding the possibility of escalating a confrontational situation.
Once activated Identicom automatically opens a phone line to WSS Security's sophisticated national Alarm Response Centre, where the call can be managed, recorded, listened to and if necessary escalated with an immediate response.
Like traditional ID holders, Identicom is worn on a lanyard or by using a label clip. This means that, even if a worker has removed their coat or jacket and put their bag down, Identicom is still with them at all times. The lanyard hides a clever ‘rip alarm’ that is automatically triggered if the Identicom is forcibly removed from the wearer.
Identicom will accept any industry sized ID card and can therefore be easily introduced into an organisation. If staff are already accustomed to carrying an ID card for proof of identity or for access around their working environment then Identicom causes no concerns and is unlikely to be forgotten.
Also available is Identicom Mobile, a software application that is easily installed on a client's Blackberry or Windows Mobile smartphone. Most appropriate for managers or lone workers facing infrequent risk, Identicom Mobile offers many of the benefits of the dedicated Identicom lone worker device.
Identicom is the definitive lone worker protection device for those facing the threat of verbal or physical abuse during their working day.
