The BEEKs duress badge beacon addresses the growing need to protect doctors, nurses and other caregivers from threatening situations that arise in the hospital environment. The Bluetooth Low Energy duress functionality provides a fast and easy way for hospital personnel to send security staff real-time distress alerts from anywhere in or around the hospital campus if they are in duress and in case of other emergencies. Enabled by Bluvision (part of HID Global), the duress beacon is the latest addition to the HID Location Services IoT platform, which makes it possible to streamline and enable multiple location services applications in a unified healthcare IoT ecosystem. It can be used by itself or integrated into popular access control cards already in use.
