GPS tracking service provider Myionu has introduced a range of safety monitoring devices from Blackline designed to increase the safety for the thousands of lone workers employed throughout Australia. Paul Delaney, General Manager, Myionu said “our technology is helping keep workers’ safe without invading privacy” Whilst there are many GPS tracking products on the market, very few are designed specifically for the safety of employees. Our employee product enables employers to monitor the safety of employees with a combination of automatic and manual safety alerting features including True Fall Detection®, man-down detection, missed check-in detection, emergency latch, and silent emergency. When safety incidents occur, the device communicates the employee’s identity, precise location, and an alert type to monitor personnel who are empowered to manage a pinpoint emergency response. One of the biggest issues using GPS to provide a location is that if the employee is in a building or under cover, a false location is given, this presents a real problem when trying to locate an employee in an emergency situation. The solution to this issue is to install low cost indoor location beacons. In areas where GPS location data is unavailable, our devices can communicate an employee’s location based on signals from nearby Loner Beacons. If an employee suffers an injury or health condition, his or her Loner safety monitoring device communicates the alert type, employee’s name, and location to monitoring personnel who manage a pin-point emergency response to the correct building, floor, and room. Installation is easy, requiring just a few minutes to mount a bracket and click the Beacon into place. The Beacons are self-powered by two C-cell alkaline batteries that provide five years of operation. Battery replacement is simple and cost effective. “With many employees working in remote areas where mobile phone coverage is poor or non-existent presents additional communication challenges” Said Delaney. “It not just a case of using satellite phones or standard satellite based communication devices. Simply put, if the user does not have a view clear view of the sky, traditional devices just won’t work”. To combat this issue Myionu has devices that connect to a portal base station to provide communications; Range General Use: up to 2 km; Range Hilltop to Hilltop: 10+ km; Terrain, foliage, and buildings will affect overall 900 MHz radio link range. Using the bridge provides employees with true satellite communication when in buildings and even underground. The Myionu suite of safety devices can be purchased directly from Myionu or from its network of Authorised Dealers.  Packages start from just $39 with annual service plans from $199 About Myionu:  Myionu is a division of AffiniftyOne Pty delivering a range of location based devices and services to business and individuals throughout the world to improve safety, security and productivity.

Whilst most operators are happy pay for hardware, the regular service fees are a real deal breaker. Myionu OnDemand provides fleet operators with a high quality GPS Tracking module that can remain dormant until needed. Fees are only charged when the module is enabled. Operators will pay a small activation fee and then a daily fee (which provides real-time tracking via our web based portal with regular updates as frequently as every 10 seconds). The fleet operator can de-activate the module when tracking is no longer required, putting it into a dormant state ready for reactivation if (and when) needed.   http://www.myionu.com.au/myionu-ondemand/ $200 GPS Tracking Device Set To Beat Theives 2014-01-23T05:15:18Z 200-gps-tracking-device-set-to-beat-theives Perth based SPOT Distributor AffinityOne has announced that it will be distributing the new SPOT Trace in Australia.

"Employers are looking for a single source safety monitoring solution for all employees regardless of their location or environment," says Cody Slater, CEO and Chairman of Blackline GPS. "Our new ANThill location beacon brings the value of safety monitoring from the field into facilities for all types of industries, including Oil & Gas, Public Works, Manufacturing, and beyond." ANThill location beacons broadcast a short-range wireless signal. When an employee-worn Loner safety monitoring device is within proximity of a beacon, the Loner device reports its location to Blackline's hosted infrastructure. An employee's location is mapped within a Loner Portal user account with pinpoint accuracy wherever ANThill beacons are deployed. Wiring into a building's electrical system is not required as ANThill beacons are self-powered with two standard C-cell alkaline batteries, featuring a battery life of 5 years. “We expect demand in Australia to be high. Many companies have expressed an interest in deploying a cost effective location and safety system that delivers precise locations in both indoor and outdoor environments.” says Paul Delaney, General Manager of Myionu. “Whilst locating staff externally has been available for some time, locating staff effectively internally and externally had always been a challenge - until now.” Employees face the everyday risk of injury and health incidents whilst at work. When a safety incident occurs, Blackline's Loner(R) brand of employee safety monitoring solutions provide instant, automated and real-time safety alerting to monitoring personnel and enable a pin-point emergency response. Industries such as Oil & Gas, Petrochemical, Pharmaceutical, Compressed Gas, Wastewater, and Power Technology (all of which require Intrinsically Safe instrumentation) now have a Class I, Division 1 certified worker safety monitoring solution at hand with the launch of the newest innovation from Blackline GPS (TSX VENTURE:BLN) ("Blackline"): the Loner® IS. The employee's GPS location is reported to monitoring personnel when a safety alert is triggered, in order to direct emergency response teams to that employee in need. Monitoring personnel are aided by direct access to the alert type, the employee's name and phone number, an interactive map of the employee's past location history and the locations of any nearby colleagues whom could possibly go to the incident right away. Some of the Loner IS features include: Instant wireless communication of safety alerts generated by an employee's Loner IS device. True Fall Detection® technology that alerts monitoring personnel when a fall is detected; (differentiated from other activity such as jumping off a loading dock or running down stairs). Activity monitoring that detects man-down situations where an employee has become motionless. An emergency latch that allows monitored personnel to instantly request help. Local alarms that generate a loud audible tone and flashing indicator lights to aid responders to quickly locate the employee.

GPS helps Alzheimers and dementia patients 2012-07-18T04:59:22Z gps-helps-alzheimers-and-dementia-patients Perth based GPS Tracking service provider Myionu has launched a new GPS tracking service called Myionu for safety to help carers of Alzheimers and dementia patients. The small GPS tracking device will raise an alert should a patient leave or enter any preset location, (for example their home). The device will then constantly update the location of the patient at regular 1 minute or 3 minute intervals. The location can be viewed via a secure portal from any PC, Tablet or Smartphone with an internet connection. Paul Delaney, Myionu head of sales said “Carers are turning to GPS Tracking technology to provide real-time visibility of patients” He continues “now that GPS tracking devices have become more affordable they are fast becoming a viable solution in the healthcare market ” Myionu for safety is a small battery powered GPS tracking device that can be put in a pocket, clipped to a belt or lanyard. The battery can last up to 400 hours in a single charge with alerts being raised and sent to the carer via email when the battery level gets too low. Myionu for safety also features a duress system which, when activated, immediately alerts the carer via email and an audiovisual alert on computer screen as to the location of the patient. The unit will also continue to track the patient’s movements. There are no doubt concerns whether this technology is an invasion of privacy. Mr Delaney commented on these concerns, “ each customer has a secure personal login, I believe that GPS tracking will become as common place as mobile phones are within a few years. It is the responsibility of ourselves (and other service providers) to ensure subscribers only use the service for legitimate purposes and that should we become aware that the service is being misused it will be immediately suspended. The cost of the Myionu for safety is just $249 with monthly subscriptions from only $30.

Location data is triggered by a combination of time, distance and speed. In doing this, battery use (which up until now has been one of the biggest downfalls) is minimised. As the location data is received by Myionu, it is interrogated to determine if any events should be triggered; for example, entry into a pre-defined area, speed and even if the user has been at a location longer than a pre-set time period. An automated alerting system will generate an event (which can be sent as an email, or displayed on specific or groups of PC’s) The Myionu system will also provide a wide range of detailed managements reports including trip detail, stop times and more.
