Real-time locating system
Senstar announced a new, more compact version of its Flare Real-Time Locating System (RTLS) personal protection device (PPD), the PPD Compact. The Flare RTLS keeps staff working in high-threat environments safe by instantly identifying and locating personal duress alarms at the touch of a button. The original PPD is a robust, utility belt-holster device specifically designed for frontline correctional workers. The new PPD Compact provides a smaller option for support and administrative staff in institutional environments. In the event of danger, the user activates the PPD which emits an RF signal that is detected by a network of sensor units concealed throughout the facility. Flare immediately locates duress alarms and displays the location, status, and identity of the PPD on a map-based display in the control room. Flare operates in protected frequency bands that use dedicated spectrum, avoiding the potential for interference.
