MONTRÉAL, Nov. 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Siyata Mobile Inc. (the "Company" or "Siyata") (TSX-V:SIM / OTCQX:SYATF) is pleased to announce that the Uniden® UV350 in-vehicle smartphone has integrated with the CrisisGo emergency alert and communication system.
CrisisGo is the only incident management platform that coordinates alerts, messages and notifications through communication and IoT devices across and within first responders, school safety and security teams, teachers and staff, and the entire education community.
The CrisisGo app combined with the Uniden® UV350 keeps yellow school bus drivers connected to first responders, dispatch, and fleet managers through an instant unified mobile communication solution. The UV350 is the first dedicated in-vehicle phablet approved and FirstNet-ready, built for the specific needs of commercial drivers and first responders while integrating functionality critical to emergency first responders. CrisisGo allows teachers, school administrators and their security teams to rapidly alert key personnel of potential risks. Alerts can also be escalated to district administrators and first responders. CrisisGo also enables those in crisis to stay in constant contact by sharing timely and relevant information as the situation unfolds.
“Extending school safety beyond the campus and school grounds is a challenge for many of our customers,” said Chris Vuillaume, General Manager for CrisisGo. “By working with Siyata Mobile and integrating with the Uniden UV350 device, we can now extend student safety to school buses. Giving drivers the ability to instantly call for help and stay connected with support personnel will reduce response times to emergencies that can happen on a bus. Anything from a flat tire or mechanical breakdown to a medical situation with a student – Siyata and CrisisGo ensure that drivers can instantly call for help and get support to manage the incident.”
Key features of the CrisisGo/Uniden UV350 solution include:
● Guaranteed FirstNet connectivity to ensure safety
● Immediate discreet one-to-one or one-to-many communications
● Interconnectivity to first responders
● Side button to set off personal panic alarm to safety team
● Side button to set off audible emergency tones (i.e. Lockdown)
● Auto escalation option to include law enforcement in critical incidents and communications
● Easy and reliable sharing of photos, videos and other resource information
● All communications are accessible for post-incident reports and analysis
The Uniden® UV350 is built and designed to combine the functions of multiple devices into one. Using AT&T Enhanced Push-to-Talk or Push-to-Talk Over Cellular (PoC), drivers, while keeping eyes on the road, can communicate with crystal-clear sound at the touch of a button, and unlike traditional cellular communication devices, the UV350 is powered by the vehicle battery, with optional cellular signal boosting technology to ensure drivers are always connected in emergency situations. An optional SOS Button for the Uniden UV350 allows drivers to alert emergency personnel during emergencies.
Marc Seelenfreund, CEO of Siyata Mobile states, “CrisisGo allows drivers to immediately alert the necessary people in times of emergency. This is an ideal partner for Siyata as drivers, first responders, students and parents will be safer knowing that they can drive in a safer environment and be in contact quickly with the right people in times of emergency.”
UV350 features include:
- LTE high speed data
- 5.5” widescreen LED display for easy monitoring
- Dedicated microphone and speaker for crystal-clear extra loud sound quality
- In-vehicle installation ensures device is always powered by the vehicle’s battery
- Extended cellular and GPS coverage with external antenna included
- Push-to-Talk Over Cellular (PoC) ensures instant communication at the push of a button
CrisisGo provides an all-in-one solution to ensure that students, teachers, staff, and parents stay connected during emergency situations. The Safe2SpeakUp Student App allows students to report bully-related activity, submit safety tips about incidents at schools, and access safety resources during the event of an emergency.
