Quick Overview

The Loner Beacon works hand in hand with all Loner devices to provide accurate positioning of Lone Workers inside buildings, where GPS signals are low or unreliable.

The clever technology of the Indoor Beacon enables you to map areas of your factory where Lone Workers may be present, including those areas on different floor levels.

With 5 year battery life and easy installation, these Beacons empower the Blackline Loner M6 system as the ultimate indoor Lone Worker system.

Blackline Indoor Location Beacon

Working hand in hand with the Blackline Loner SMD and M6 devices, together these instruments create a powerful indoor Lone Worker Safety System.

Loner Indoor Location Beacons

These easy to install Indoor Location Beacons are fixed to surfaces in desired locations, and programmed via your own Loner Portal. Once the easy set up procedure has been completed, Loner devices can be accurately located when within a set distance of the beacons, even when GPS signals are not present. The benefit of combining the Loner Devices with the Indoor Location Beacons is the reduced time in acknowledging, locating and providing emergency assistance to workers in distress. Designed for industrial use, you'll only have to change the battery of the Indoor Location Beacon after 5 years.

Example of Use

A Maintenance Engineer slips and falls in a remote area of a manufacturing plant on a Sunday evening, when few staff are on site. Though the Engineer is wearing his Lone Worker Device, this particular area of the site has very low GPS signal; so despite a Man-Down alarm sounding in the Portal, and emergency Text and Email alerts are sent to the designated personnel, the location of the Engineer is not precisely displayed on the map provded. With the addition of Indoor Location Beacons placed in the low signal areas of the site, the Portal and message alerts would display which Beacon the Engineer was closest to - For Example, Boiler Room, Floor 2 - enabling the response team to arrive and provide the response required in as short a time as possible. Alert. Locate. Respond.
