New security alert tracking system monitors the vital signs of all employees and reports wirelessly

March 9, 2007 A new and unique employee security and safety tracking system will be shown for the first time at the ISC West EXPO, in Las Vegas, March 28-30, 2007. The system revolves around a bio-sensor chip with proprietary algorithms that collects information from the reflectance of light on the human body, in a non-invasive manner, to monitor key vital signs, including heart rate and oxygen saturation levels. The Third Eye SATS unit is a wrist-mounted device for employees, which collects and sends information wirelessly to the employer’s central monitoring system. If the heart rate exhibits unnatural fluctuations, the information is captured on the wrist unit and transmitted to the central monitoring system. The receiving system can be configured with a video surveillance system to trigger cameras to zoom in on the employee.

Recognizing that the human heart rate fluctuates in stressful situations, such as when a person is subjected to threatening behavior or engaging in illegal activities, SPO Medical and Third Eye have adapted this technology to create the Security Alert Tracking System (SATS) for use in banks, casinos, retail outlets and other companies to monitor employee safety and possible employee misappropriations.

The centrepiece of Third Eye’s SATS unit is a wrist-mounted device that employees can wear comfortably, which collects and sends information wirelessly to the employer’s central monitoring system. If the heart rate exhibits unnatural fluctuations, the information is captured on the wrist unit and transmitted to the central monitoring system. The receiving system can be configured with a video surveillance system to trigger cameras to zoom in on the employee. Used in a casino, bank, office or store, SATS allows the employer’s surveillance staff to immediately focus on the employee with unnatural heart rate fluctuations and determine the source of the stress. This enhances employee security at the company and also can be deployed to assist in apprehending employees engaged in unlawful activities.
