Radio Applications

Today’s digital 2 way radio technology allows far more than voice transmissions alone. There are many international partners that SFL operate alongside to further enhance your current radio system; whether it be purchased or on a rental scheme from SFL Mobile Radio.

Features such as:

GPS
it is important to know the location of every organisation’s greatest asset, its workforce! Many digital 2 way radios now have the option of an integrated GPS module and therefor transmit the position of that radio to strategically located software; either to a Command and Control Centre or a Supervisors tablet depending upon the Software chosen.

The GPS will operate when the 2 way radio is within its geographical radio coverage area and with the installation of indoor GPS beacons, this can offer indoor and outdoor mapping capabilities:

  • Position vehicles or personnel indoor or outdoor
  • Combine with Mandown, Recording Software, Remote Monitoring, Loneworker and Panic Button to further enhance personnel safety and security
  • Obtain historical reports on movement history
  • Locate people in an emergency quickly and effectively
  • View movement in real-time on a variety of mapping overlays
Lone Worker Alert
Many current day roles consist of an employee operating in their work environment alone. Many 2 way radio manufacturers have evolved their radio software so that if the operative has an accident the radio will automatically send an alarm to their Control Room, following a preset period that has timed out with no acknowledgement from the user.
Mandown
If the radio tilts past its preset threshold, it will activate an alarm back to Control or associated fleet of radios.
Private Calling
Your radio has the ability to conduct a private call with another radio, this maybe a Supervisor or Control Room.
Group Calling
You can use this feature to enter into other operations within your organisation such as the management group. On a larger scale if there is an evacuation required you could press the Panic Button and that would automatically create one large group for what is usually several channels.
Panic Button
This button is usually brightly coloured on the radio for easy access by the user. On being pressed it can alert the Control Room or fleet of radios with the radio ID or even the name of the operative in distress.
Remote Monitoring
The controller can take over the user’s radio remotely. Extremely useful when the controller is aware their colleague may be in danger and feels in necessary to access their microphone.
Site Alarm
Receive alarms and alerts direct to your radio from around your site, once the alarm is received to your radio, which can be in the form of a text message, then the user can act on the information quickly and effectively.
SMS Texting
Your 2 way radio will have the ability to select pre-defined messages out of a list that can be agreed during radio programming. Alternatively you can use freehand SMS if your radio has a full keypad.
