In Depth – RockSTAR chosen by Tenterfield shire council
It’s a tough life in Regional Australia – Tenterfield Shire Council workers are often out of GSM coverage as they travel around the Shire on duty . In all cases, they can only rely on the equipment they take with them.
This is where RockSTAR, remote worker safety system is most useful. It provides vital communications to keep in touch with both HQ, and home. Position information is sent automatically from the unit, as regularly as every 30 seconds, or as infrequently as once every 12 hours. If the team at head office suspect their workers are in trouble they can remotely increase the transmission rate to get more frequent fixes.
The RockSTAR can also be used to communicate, sending short messages via e-mail and SMS to the office, and to loved ones. Some even use our Bluetooth link (via iPad/iPhone/Android) to comfortably write e-mail
Our units don’t rely on any terrestrial service – if the mobile phone network is down, that’s not a problem. As long as our devices can see the sky, then they will be able to transmit their position and message data back home. That means they are reliable and dependable, regardless of weather conditions and access to electricity.
The Remote worker safety system‘s battery endurance will allow up to 2000 transmissions with a single charge.
