LOS ANGELES – June 20, 2017 – Worldwide Business with kathy ireland® announces an exclusive interview with Nordicom CEO, Luc Harbour, introducing the company’s new Secure Alert technology that helps ensure people’s safety in a variety of settings.
Nordicom is a company that specializes in the design and manufacturing of panic button/staff duress systems which are capable of integrating to output systems such as cell phones, email, strobe lights, paging systems, sirens etc. Nordicom’s Securalert system has the option of being battery powered making it easy to install and maintain. It works off a radio signal — not Wi-Fi — which increases its reliability. Some of Nordicom’s clients include healthcare centers, detention centers, schools, hotels, workplaces and more. In many states, there are employment laws being put in place whereby employers are required to provide panic buttons to staff. Hotels in major cities are now required to provide hotel cleaning staff with panic buttons to protect them from harm. However, not any panic button system will suffice as the system is required to indicate the exact room that the signal is coming from- not just a general area. This is especially important in hotels properties with multiple floors with hundreds of rooms.
Harbour says that there are many challenges with today’s traditional indoor security localization technology — but Nordicom’s approach is different. He says, “The technology has been developed mostly to follow objects, not humans. The use of radio signals is good outdoors but when you use it inside of a building, radio signals become unpredictable. At Nordicom, we think of human behavior. So in real life, when someone requires assistance, the intervention team or response team needs to know, ‘Where is this person?’ That’s the important thing. Securalert eliminates the guesswork and decreases response times. We don’t need to know that someone is 25 feet from the west wall. Our system just gives the exact room location! It’s 100% accurate, errorless, and fast- typically within a second.”
The company is composed of a team of dynamic professionals with nearly 20 years of expertise in the field of wireless communication — from design to manufacturing. Nordicom was founded in 1998 and is headquartered in Canada.
JL Haber, Vice President of Programming for Worldwide Business with kathy ireland®, can’t wait to feature Nordicom. He says, “Knowing people’s exact locations in order to ensure their safety has never been more important. For those who need this peace of mind and who are looking for strong, reliable indoor localization technology, Nordicom is the perfect choice. We’re absolutely thrilled to feature Nordicom on our show.”
