Ask us today about interest free finance up to $2,000. Slice your investment into 10 fortnightly repayments using Humm (ex Oxypay). Approval takes a valid credit card, ID and email. We can also tailor a lease package for you for 6+ units through our finance partners.
A rugged, reliable, communications solution to meet your WHS "lone worker" obligations, enhance team efficiencies and provide your customers with better service.
Your staff will also feel safer, and feel more part of a team by being able to contact everyone at the push of a button- something you can't achieve by handing out regular cellphones to your team!
Perfect for industries where time is critical:
Cash in transit (armoured and covert- only a bluetooth phone style earpiece is visible), patrol fleets, sole Officer sites, alarm response units and K9s, close protection teams...
Tow truck operators, urgent couriers, shuttle bus companies, uber fleets, charter bus fleets, limo fleets, local government (Rangers, rubbish collection, water and utilities, animal control), transport companies (including linehaul/ overnight freight)...
How far do they talk? Across your city of operation, and almost everywhere in between where there is Telstra Next G Coverage. Over 1,000km range- if that helps to visualize it.
How do they work? Just like any other walky talky you may be used to. Turn it on, wait for it to start up and conenct. Push and hold the side button to talk, release to listen. Turn the dial to adjust the volume. It takes most people about 30 seconds to work it out.
Are they secure? Yes. All comms are sent as data packets over 3G/4G. Just like your banking app on your phone. You have to be a world class cyber hacker to hack into the secure server network- which is monitored 24/7 by Sydney based engineers and IT specialists.
Can I have 2 channels? Yes. Absolutely. We can programme up to 1,000 channels if you have thousands of staff using your system. And you can name each channel (PATROL1, XX SECURITY, HOUSEKEEPING, LINEHAUL2, DIGGERS TRANSPORT etc).
You can also add private talkgroups on the fly using the dispatcher software or by contacting us should you have one off events coming up. Its all included at no extra cost (as long as you are reasonable!).
Do they have SOS buttons? Yes. These sound an alarm and pop up on the dispatcher console back at your control room (the dispatch console is an extra monthly charge- about the same as an extra radio). It also pinpoints the location of the person (not just the car) with a GPS location. You can then call and txt your worker to get more information about the situation and establish what type of assistance is needed.
Why are they so expensive? They aren't. The system is very competitively priced vs legacy two way radio networks which can cost upwards of $1,000 per radio to purchase and over $80 a month in airtime (ours are about $600ea and just over a dollar a day in unlimited airtime).
Will it work with an earpiece? Yes. We sell them to meet your requirements- from basic to high end, mission critical. There is a wide range of wireless bluetooth accessories that work with these- from speaker microphones to high noise earmuffs for loud environments. Normal bluetooth earpieces don't have a PTT switch so you may strike minor issues and have to key up on the radio.
I already have an account with Telstra/Optus. Do I need to provide my own SIM cards? Our standard monthly service includes everything- including the SIM card (at Telstra wholesale rates), unlimited data for PTT, and server connection.
You can provide your own cell data SIM if you wish, and we will give you a discounted monthly rate for server-only service (10+ units only).
Do you lock me into a 24 month contract? Its month to month and you can cancel at anytime. You will only get "locked in" if you choose to lease the units, or choose to sign up for a 12 or 24 month contract.
We don't use radios- I just give my patrol staff a cellphone. Great! Your Officers can use our app and wireless microphones to build your own private network at minimal cost!
Instant Push to Talk (PTT) equipment has many benefits, as our customers have found. No dialling numbers, no staff chatting with site staff and rejecting your important calls, no staff calling their mates back in their home country for hours on end, no staff using company phones for facebook...
Plus our customers are experiencing the health and safety benefits of being able to call for assistance from your colleagues instantly. Our PTT solution equipment has already saved field officers from being bashed through rapid backup from their nearby colleagues. You can't expect your staff to ask an attacker to wait for 2 minutes while you call 000 and their supervisor and explain their location!
**Using cellphones for back to base communications in the security industry (particularly CIT) is not recommended by Workcover Codes of Practice in some states of Australia and the question "why not?" will be asked in the event of an incident causing injury- opening your firm up to liability exposure.
Can I see how they work? Sure. Contact us by completing the form here and we will organise some no obligation trial units for you.
Do I need a government ACMA license to make them work? No. Because they use cellphone based- technology, you do not need additional spectrum licenses- saving you thousands of dollars per year, not to mention repeater tower hire, power, linking fees for multiple sites etc.
Can I rent them? Yes. We can organise rental units for you for short term events.
You can also hire purchase through our finance partners- and you own them at the end of the term if you like with a small balloon payment.
Complete the form HERE and we will make contact with you to organise a free trial or quote or call us 1300 515 662
