How does the Lone Working Equipment Work?
The lone working equipment works by providing the lone worker with a manual and an automatic way to summon help in an emergency. The staff member carries the lone worker transmitter, either in their pocket or clipped to their belt. If at any point, the worker needs to summon assistance, they simply press the red panic button on the front of the transmitter and a radio signal is transmitted.
This device also offers what we call the ‘tilt switch’ function. Where if the lone worker transmitter is tilted at over 60 degrees from standing, simulating someone being on the floor or unconscious, the transmitter will go into a 15-second countdown. If the member of staff does not stand up within this timeframe, a distress signal will also be transmitted. This function can be deactivated for 5 minutes by pressing the tilt override button at the top of the transmitter.
Once the alarm is activated, an alarm signal is sent back to the wall-mounted central receiver (which has a number of indicators, a sounder and a reset button). Each transmitter has a different channel to identify which device’s alarm is sounding. The alarm is cancelled when the reset button on the central receiver is pressed.
There are 2 other options available for raising the alarm onto designated remote third parties:
- Either internally via a paging module installed on the central panel. Once an alarm has been triggered the panel will broadcast out another radio signal to a remote pager or activate any number of siren/strobe units.
- Or externally via an auto-dialler. Once an alarm has been triggered the panel will broadcast out another radio signal to a remote pager connect an auto-dialler which dials out to a list of pre-programmed phone numbers with a pre-recorded message requesting assistance.
The auto-dialler option is used when a member of staff is working completely alone in a building/premises, and there is no one else on site that would be able to pick up the alarm. The dialler dials out to a list of pre-programmed phone numbers to deliver a pre-recorded voice message requesting assistance. The dialler must be located near a phone line. This must be an ordinary analogue phone line such as a fax line or domestic phone line. The receiver and dialler run of a single mains adapter which is supplied with the equipment.
For the diallers, you can enter up to nine telephone numbers (mobile or landline) and the dialler will ring through the list one number at a time. The dialler will keep ringing through the list of numbers unless someone answers the call and presses the hash (#) key to stop the dialler from continuing through the list.
The dialler has a built-in memory for telephone numbers and programmed settings will always store all the information when disconnected from the mains. The dialler as standard is supplied with a telephone cable – BT431 to RJ11 connection, however, lots of companies use their network points to connect into the phone therefore, we can use an RJ45 adapter.
