  • incapacitation/fall detection
  • rip alarm activation
  • two-way audio
  • audio capture
  • GPS location

Leading lone worker technology, discreet operation

SoloProtect ID is a versatile emergency and reporting device in the guise of a standard ID holder. It gives the ability to summon emergency aid in any threatening situation without alerting a potential attacker.

SoloProtect ID is a UK product developed to meet the needs of public health workers. It has since become the international gold standard of discreet, effective lone worker solutions in a wide range of industries. 

SoloProtect ID uses the mobile phone (GSM) network and links directly to NZ Lone Worker's specialist 24/7 monitoring centre. In many cases, clients establish SoloProtectID as an integral part of a worker's PPE and dynamic risk assessment protocols.

When you choose SoloProtectID, NZ Lone Worker also provides sophisticated customisation, monitoring, reporting, and training.
