Coverage Options For Isolated & Remote Areas

GetHomeSafe (or one of our Partners) are official resellers of all networks and hardware we support on the platform. We can be a one-stop-shop to provide all elements of your remote worker solution or bring your existing hardware and network and GHS provides the software that brings it all together, whatever works best for you.


Mixed Cell Coverage

A selection of supported stand-alone devices, such as the RockAir, Motorola Ion and A*Live units have multiple coverage options on one device, including their own SIM card for cell connectivity.

Satellite Iridium Network

Utilising a selection of satellite communicators like Garmin InReach, Rock7 and Protigear you can connect with your remote working teams via the Iridium short burst data (SBD) network.

The SBD satellite constellation is low orbit, meaning the satellites move across the sky, giving the added advantage of 100% global coverage and connection even with the smallest sky view.

Motorola Digital Radio

GetHomeSafe has the option to connect with your Motorola digital radio network and allows the ability to start, check in, and sign off a work or travel plan — all from your digital radio.

Man-down, impact and duress alerts from the radios are also processed through the platform, centralising and standardising these events with all other supported devices.

Satellite Global Star Network

Connect your remote working teams to GetHomeSafe with the Global Star network in selected regions with the Spot range of satellite communicators, including the two-way messenger Spot X with full a Blackberry-style keypad. 

The Global Star satellite constellation is geostationary, meaning fewer satellites are required to get coverage and resulting data plans are very affordable.

Safety Out Of Coverage FAQs

Tracking the live GPS location of lone working employees through their phone is an incredibly powerful safety measure if done correctly.  GetHomeSafe — Lone Worker app is session-based, employees (not management) control when their GPS location is shared and recorded.

The system is built on a four-tier access hierarchy and full GDPR-compliant audit trail of access to personal information. We deal with the ‘big brother’ objection on a daily basis and we included objection handling in our train the trainer and communications assistance implementation support packages.

That is why we monitor time, if your phone leaves cell coverage the app caches the locations and prompts you to find coverage. The app reminds you to check in (and find coverage) even when out of signal.

If you fail to check in, the server (not your phone) sends the alert to your nominated contacts, creating a catch-all and fail-safe system to alert someone, regardless of what has happened to you or your phone.

Have a look at our hardware page, our supported devices are listed here or if you are still not sure send us a message through live chat or the contact form.
