A customer told me something interesting recently.
This factory had an emergency system installed a long time ago. It was triggered by any of their supervisors pushing one of the panic buttons located throughout the factory. The idea was supposed to be that if staff hear this alarm, they simply got out of the buildings.
Twenty years ago, when your heard an alarm, you probably paid attention. Now days, everything I own seems to make noise, from my phone to my fridge and toaster oven. Our customers staff also includes some that are hearing impaired, so they couldn’t hear the alarm anyway.
The solution is actually pretty simple. Tell people what they should do. And flashing a strobe for the visually impaired will allow them to look up and see what most of the staff are doing.
The Teletic’s w*intercom can give clear instructions, even in multiple languages, and can strobe a warning light, if needed. You can have multiple alarms. Professional voice actors can provide clear, direct, instructions that are blasted out company wide. Strobes can also flash.
We can even tell everyone it’s lunch time or time to go home!!
W*intercom is a wireless phone and PA that can be used to provide a phone in difficult environments, such as in a chemical plant, on an oil rig, in a mine and more. If you would like to know more about what w*intercom can do, contact us any time.
