Bosch PS-Pager Helps Prevent Incidents Escalating into Emergencies

Bosch Security Systems is launching the PS-Pager (Personal Security Pager), an innovative mobile that is two products in one compact device. It combines the protection offered by a personal alarm device with the convenience of a speech pager. The PS-Pager is lightweight, robust, comfortable and discreet to wear, and easy to use.

The PS-Pager is designed for lone workers as well as high-risk environments such as healthcare institutions and detention centers, where employees can suddenly find themselves in unexpected or threatening situations. The PS-Pager offers the possibility to instantly alert colleagues and inform them about the alarm location. The PS-Pager also has a wide range of uses for everyday tasks, for example providing a secure and versatile instant messaging capability for individuals and large groups.

The device is designed for easy message reading and handling. Features include the reversible top display (ideal for hands-free reading in a pocket), an automatic scroll function, and easily recognizable icons. Alphanumeric paging calls are displayed on the 12-character top display and the graphical front display. This displays 3 lines of 12 characters and also gives visual (accompanied by audible) indication of a low battery and/or out-of-range condition. The last 10 messages received are held in a memory stack and can be recalled when needed.

The PS-Pager offers two types of manual alarm (emergency and assistance alarm); each is adjustable for loud or silent alerting of the emergency team. A built-in vibrating function provides more discreet alerting in situations where audible alerts are not wanted or are inadequate. These include noisy environments, night shifts or Deaf-Alert.

Radio frequency based location detection is a standard feature of the PS-Pager. It is very reliable because the RF signal passes through walls and clothing to immediately provide the emergency response team with the location of the incident scene.

The PS-Pager is fully compatible with existing Bosch Paging and Personal Security Systems which can interface with for example telephone switches, building management, nurse call and fire detection systems.
