CrisisGo Provides Smarter Solution for Wireless Help Buttons
Safety OneClick lets individuals in distress sound an alarm to get help utilizing IoT wireless panic buttons
St. Louis, Missouri — CrisisGo, a leading provider in emergency communications, incident management, and student/staff health management, announce the release of Safety OneClick: an easy-to-use, physical wireless panic button system, extending your safety plan to any location.
Leveraging AWS IoT Core for LoRaWan, SafetyOneClick is a fully managed solution enabling customers to connect a simple-to-deploy panic button with low-power and long-range network protocol.
As many schools and commercial companies across the country look to support safety and prepare for mandates requiring panic buttons. IoT (Internet of Things) buttons provide a safety solution that is affordable, easy to deploy, and scalable to any school district or organization's needs. Safety OneClick lets individuals in distress sound an alarm, getting help utilizing IoT wireless panic buttons.
With the click of a button, you trigger an emergency alert in CrisisGo, automatically notifying the proper response personnel and, if the situation warrants, first responders. While at the same time, the safety team or first responders can utilize CrisisGo's platform, notifying everyone at risk and beginning response protocols.
In addition to providing a safety solution that's easy to use and quick to roll out, Safety OneClick utilizes LoRaWAN technology to maintain a reliable connection so that your system is always emergency-ready. Instead of relying on Wi-Fi for your wireless buttons, which can drain the panic button's battery life and slow down your network, Safety OneClick's use of LoRaWAN allows schools to maintain a reliable connection. CrisisGo runs on AWS IoT Core for LoRaWAN, ensuring a safe and secure connection. By utilizing Amazon Web Services (AWS), CrisisGo offers organizations one of the best services with an incredibly fast hosting platform, protecting their security. CrisisGo's advanced device monitoring system — combined with AWS's superior scalability and dependable uptime, ensures system reliability when your organization needs it most.
"Cal-Chip Connect was chosen as our IoT distributor and value-added service provider, as they're a collection of the highest performing devices — specializing in LoRa® technology and bringing scalability to the market for more than 40 years," said Jim Spicuzza, Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer at CrisisGo.
Cal-Chip Connect smart devices and the CrisisGo Emergency Communication provide an efficient, effective, and affordable safety solution. IoT buttons and LoRaWAN gateways are set up, tested, and rolled out to a whole organization in minutes — ensuring your IoT equipment setup is a streamlined and straightforward process. IoT safety solutions create viable options, quickly implemented at a lower cost than competing solutions. IoT wireless buttons provide both employees and staff with a help button on their person or lanyard fob. If an emergency occurs or assistance is needed — they simply press a button, triggering a safety alert and immediately notifying onsite safety teams.
"We saw enormous potential with this solution since its integration into existing technology and safety systems is so simple," said Spicuzza. He continued, "The cost of retrofitting buildings with hardwired panic buttons is expensive and takes time, but IoT devices provide an affordable and effective solution with superior dependability. IoT devices require minimal setup and training at a low cost, allowing users to equip an entire organization with technology to potentially save lives."
"Last year alone, 486,000 alerts and over 48 million critical messages were sent out by schools across the country using CrisisGo to prevent, prepare, respond, and recover from over 400 types of school safety threats," said Spicuzza.
