Security Two-Way Radio Communication Products, Systems and Applications

Security teams take on roles in varying market sectors and they need a communications solution which can adjust and be tailored to their needs, where they can communicate, monitor and control teams across varying terrains.

DCRS can offer security two-way radios and voice and data radio solutions that will keep all levels of your site running efficiently, while assisting in lowering operating costs. This allows you to maintain high service levels, adhere to strict HSE guidelines and ensure staff work as efficiently as possible from just one device.

Body-worn cameras are helping security personnel everywhere to protect not only themselves but the organisations they work for and members of the public they serve. Capturing vital evidence in the field is becoming more and more important as organisations turn to the body-worn cameras with the best recording capabilities, most rugged and ergonomic design and cutting-edge technology.

Fast and clear communication

Reliable two-way radios play a crucial role in facilitating communication within security teams. Unlike smartphones or other communication devices, two-way radios offer instant push-to-talk functionality, allowing security personnel to communicate with each other with the push of a button. This immediate access to communication ensures that assistance requests and emergency situations can be addressed without delay, speeding up response times and minimising the impact of incidents.

A valuable feature some two-way radios have is the lone worker function, which enhances the safety of security personnel operating alone in remote or hazardous locations. This feature allows lone workers to check in periodically with their team or supervisor and send automatic alerts in case of an emergency or lack of activity. By providing an added layer of safety and accountability, the lone worker feature helps mitigate risks and ensures the well-being of security personnel working alone.

Why is it necessary for security teams to have two-way radios?

  • Instant communication: Allows for immediate coordination and response to incidents.
  • Reliability: Operates on dedicated frequencies, ensuring communication in areas with poor reception or during network congestion.
  • Hands-free operation: Supports hands-free communication with accessories, allowing for multitasking.
  • Group communication: Facilitates simultaneous communication among multiple team members.

Lone worker protection

The lone worker feature on two-way radios provides an essential safety measure for security teams operating independently in various settings, such as patrolling perimeters, monitoring floors, or securing buildings. This feature works by requiring the lone worker to periodically check in with the radio system at predetermined intervals. If the user fails to check in within the specified time frame, the radio automatically triggers an alert, notifying supervisors or dispatchers of a potential emergency. This quick and reliable method of communication ensures that lone workers can swiftly reach out for assistance in case of an accident, injury, or security threat. By enhancing the safety and well-being of your security personnel, the lone worker feature helps mitigate risks and improve response times to emergencies, ultimately contributing to a safer and more secure work environment.
