iNet Now is a live monitoring solution by Industrial Scientific that enables safety leaders to continuously monitor workers . Supervisors receive customized SMS alerts when workers are exposed to up to 5 hazardous gases in the field or activate panic and man-down alarms. Alerts and visualization of workers on a map allow for the following benefits: increased awareness of worker activities, especially lone workers, and continuous process improvements across people, equipment, and gas hazards.
How it Works
The iNet Now Sync app enables communication from Industrial Scientific gas detectors to the iNet Cloud. The iNet Now Sync app runs in the background so workers have the peace of mind that they are being looked after without interfering with their work. Upon login workers see two tabs:
* Status tab - Presents connection status so workers know communication across gas detectors, the smart device, and the iNet Cloud is fully functional.
* Activity tab - Presents a list of status messages and alerts that have been generated from the gas detectors and an ability to view their location on a map. All alert conditions can be configured by the supervisor.
The communication between the gas detectors and smart device is done via Bluetooth. Therefore it is recommended that workers stay within 30 feet of the smart device. Communication to the iNet Cloud is handled via Wi-Fi or cellular networks. Location data from the smart device is sent to the iNet Cloud together with the data from the gas detector. Please note continuous use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
IMPORTANT! TO LOG INTO INET NOW SYNC, YOUR EMPLOYER MUST HAVE SIGNED UP FOR INET NOW AND PROVIDED YOU WITH LOGIN DETAILS.
iNet Now brings live monitoring of workers. Through the companion web application, supervisors receive SMS messages and can view gas detectors and workers from an Internet connected device.
