Pocket Buddy ‘PEARL’ Tracking

The Pearl is the most powerful personal safety device available which is small in size and lightweight. Combining the latest GPS technology with widely available GSM standards. The Pearl mobile is a GPS location device which is designed for personal security and has an inbuilt emergency button as well as a motion sensor. Both these features ensure direct contact to Setel Operations Centre where the monitoring and response service is managed and supported by NGS 24:7:365 should the user encounter a distressful or threatening situation.   The solution assists employers with duty of care responsibilities and adheres to the suggested HSE procedures for monitoring lone workers.
