Personal Duress

Simple. Powerful. Portable.

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is the wireless non-contact use of radio-frequency electromagnetic fields to transfer data, for the purposes of automatically identifying and tracking tags attached to objects. It has long been used in manufacturing, industrial sites and law enforcement, but it is now growing in popularity in general commercial uses. Safety Technologies, Inc. (STI) can help you leverage this technology to improve the safety and security of your property and personnel using the Elpas suite of RFID tracking solutions.

Correctional Office Emergency Call Alerting

Because the safety of correctional personnel is paramount, the ability to respond quickly to the correct location when an officer is in trouble is crucial to the safety of that staff member.

Elpas Emergency Call, using indoor/outdoor Real- Time Location System (RTLS) technology, safeguards correctional personnel most at risk from inmate violence and aggression. Elpas Emergency Call provides manual and/or automated alerts that deliver precise real-time location data which identifies the individual in trouble and the location of the evolving security incident in order to dispatch emergency response teams. And since every correctional facility is different, Elpas Emergency Call is easily adapted to your prison environment and may be expanded to cover additional indoor and exterior buildings areas or scaled to protect additional correctional officers as security needs evolve.

Elpas Emergency Call

Security personnel that may be subject to attack or injury are provided with a correctional-grade, holster worn Man-Down Emergency Call Transmitter. In the event of an emergency, the officer at risk can use the transmitter’s two emergency call buttons located on either side of the unit for manual wireless duress alerting. An onboard tilt switch and a pull cord enable automatic alarming when the protected staff member is knocked down or if the unit is grabbed by force.

The Man-Down Emergency Call Transmitter brings innovation to high-risk correctional personnel protection by combining man-down duress signaling with precise real-time building location awareness which can be integrated with the Eiris Tracking & Management Platform or other traditional security systems to enable faster and more effective response efforts.

Elpas Staff Duress

The Elpas Staff Duress Call Solution is an Active RFID/RTLS Safety, Security and Visibility Solution that enables faster response times during emergencies by instantly identifying the precise location of the specific employee under duress.

Elpas Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS) provides a cost-effective way to protect high-value assets, location of personnel and patient/visitor safety. Elpas RTLS is also valuable in manufacturing facilities, museums, jails and correctional facilities, or any indoor building environment that requires real time asset or personnel tracking.

By layering real-time location based security data onto traditional security access control and video monitoring systems Elpas can:

  • Instantaneously inform first responders as to the identity of the individual and the precise sub-room location of the unfolding emergency.
  • Provide the real-time whereabouts of the tagged individuals graphically overlaid onto the relevant floor plans.
  • Monitor the whereabouts of expensive equipment and trigger an event if the equipment passes an access point
