Safety platform React Mobile has released a new standalone safety device offering that can be used both indoors and outdoors to help hotel employees call for help in case of emergency.
Employee safety is a concern for hotels faced with an overwhelming challenge of protecting the workforce. Traditional panic buttons fall short in protecting hotel workers because hoteliers need to be able to locate their employees inside of multistory buildings, according to React Mobile. The newest panic button, The SALTE (Stand-Alone LTE), works outdoors and indoors with Bluetooth beacons and GPS to provide precise location information about an employee’s whereabouts inside or outside of a hotel. The SALTE safety device uses 4G networks using LTE-M (LTE CAT-M1), which means better reliability and lower service costs for hoteliers.
“We help the largest hotels in the world, but we also have solutions that fit boutique properties,” React Mobile CEO Robb Monkman said in a statement. “The SALTE employee panic button is a safety tool that does not need to be paired with a smart device. Not every hotel worker is going to be carrying a smart device while working. We are excited to offer a new safety tool that is cost-effective and can be used by all hotel workers whether indoors or outdoors.”
