Introducing the MePACS Solo for Duress Situations

Alayna Hansen | MePACS News , Product Tips

Are you doing all you can to keep your teams safe at work? What happens if one of your staff or clients tests positive to COVID-19?

MePACS are proud to have collaborated with Vault, Samsung and Telstra to develop a revolutionary duress alarm called the MePACS Solo – a personal alarm on the Samsung Galaxy watch.

MePACS Solo on the Samsung Galaxy watch is the latest technology connected to the MePACS 24/7 Response Duress Service.

With contact tracing and comprehensive duress protection, MePACS Solo can help keep your team safe and business operating.

Using Geo Fencing & GPS technology, the smart device can contact trace staff by identifying who may have been exposed to COVID-19 today or retrospectively, as well as where the individual has been and how frequently. This data is also accessible through an online platform that can provide reports and insights to improve worker safety.

The MePACS Solo is a discreet device for any workplace, but is perhaps most ideal for those with lone workers out in the community and those in aged/home care, healthcare, council work and real estate.

MePACS Solo supports staff safety and business continuity. We can watch out for your team while they get on with their job confidently, and in a duress situation, provide essential assistance to reduce the time it takes for security or emergency services to arrive.

There are 3 ways to signal for help:

  • Tap the ‘alert icon’ on the watch face once
  • Tap the ‘home/power key’ twice, the lower button on the right hand side of the watch
  • Automatic falls detection technology

Plus a check-in functionality that allows the user to set predefined meeting times and if they don’t check back in at that time, an alert will be raised to MePACS to check on their welfare.
