New from The Key Safe Company is One Touch, a personal alarm system which uses GPS networks to offer unrivalled independence to end-users.
Unlike alternative solutions, One Touch allows users to travel far outside their home, thanks to powerful yet unobtrusive movement monitoring software, providing traceability and peace of mind to telecare centres and relatives.
Users are provided with a two-way SOS speech pendant which, when pressed, will call up to three contacts simultaneously and allows clear, two-way conversation with the responder.
Geo-fencing ‘safe’ or ‘danger’ zones can be set up to trigger a call when the user exits or enters a pre-defined area, which is particularly useful for dementia sufferers. A breadcrumb function also allows the system administrator to view a history of the device’s movements and to request a live location update.
Unlike other products on the market, the One Touch administration system can be accessed using any modern internet-enabled device, including laptops, tablets, smartphones and smart TVs, as it does not rely on the use of Apps. The system is quick, simple and intuitive to set up, and the portal can be tailored to suit the administrator’s needs.
One Touch has unique software, available exclusively from The Key Safe Company, who also distributes the market-leading Supra C500 KeySafeTM, the UK’s market leading and only Police accredited LPS mechanical key safe for exterior installation.
Commenting on the launch of One Touch, David Ogden managing director of The Key Safe Company, said: “Our business is built on a commitment to supporting and caring for the older and vulnerable members of our communities, making the new One Touch system a natural addition to our product portfolio.
“By using a roaming SIM with access to all mobile phone networks, One Touch provides users with the freedom and independence to continue enjoying everyday activities, whether it’s visiting friends, walking in the park or going to the shops. Crucially, relatives and telecare providers also have visibility of their movements and can set vital geographical parameters to alert them of potential risks without being intrusive.
“The One Touch system can form an important part of care packages and works well alongside our Supra C500 KeySafeTM, which provides safe and controlled access to a property, in the event of an emergency at home.”
Lightweight and tactile, the One Touch device can be worn on the wrist or a lanyard and is water and dust resistant to IP54, making it suitable for outdoor use. A quick release, anti-ligature lanyard protects the wearer from injury in the event of a fall and the unit can be fully recharged in two to four hours. If the device battery is low, the responders are contacted via email. The SOS devices are available in a choice of four colours.
