How it works

The Flare RTLS uses patented technology that works with the building’s RF characteristics to accurately and reliably locate duress alarms. In the event of danger, the user activates a Personal Protection Device (PPD). The PPD emits an RF signal that is detected by a network of sensor units concealed throughout the building.
