As the clocks go back this week, and parents and commuters everywhere utter a resounding yawn, we take a look at how two-way radios save you time.  

Chances are you’re curious about when the clocks go back?
Sunday 28th October at 2am is the date and time this year.

INSTANT COMMUNICATIONS

The main function of a radio is to deliver communication instantly to many. Compare this with a mobile phone which is mainly a one to one conversation and it is clear to see that, in situations requiring efficiency and quick responses, two-way radios have the clear advantage.

Whether this in an operational, high risk or crime prevention environment, the ability to deliver information quickly and effectively is key.

In addition to instant communication there are many other benefits to using two-way radios that save you time.

EMERGENCIES AND CRITICAL INFORMATION SITUATIONS

• Emergency Buttons are perfect for hospitals and construction sites to alert colleagues quickly of an incident or emergency.

• Text Messaging on display radios allows you to communicate to a large group instantly; this helps with missing person or anti-social behaviour situations, getting the critical message across quickly. This is particularly useful for shop-watch/pub-watch schemes or in any densely populated area.

SAFETY FUNCTIONALITY

When accidents happen it is vital that communication takes place in seconds rather than minutes. The following two-way radio programmed functionality help with this.

Lone Working – Have a monitored system in place to ensure lone workers aren’t left without back up and support when they need it.
Man Down – Know instantly when someone is incapacitated
Open Mic – The ability to talk openly in an emergency bypassing push to talk if the user is injured or in distress

The features available from a two-way radio provide valuable assistance to many industries; healthcare, leisure and tourism, manufacturing and agriculture to name a few.
