Allowing users to communicate across the country at the simple push of a button, push-to-talk radio is a revolution in two-way communications. PTT utilises the mobile cellular phone data networks, and so doesn’t require ACMA spectrum licences. This makes the radios easy to move to different locations and operational groups across the country.
The UniGuard PTT system brings together the best aspects of both conventional two-way radio and smartphones creating a system that is both convenient and functional. All radios include the following features:
Calls can be made to pre-programmed groups allowing users to talk to all the members of the group. Multiple groups can be created and assigned to each radio. For ease of use, a designated primary group is also set.
In addition to groups, calls can be made between an individual radio and the dispatcher or between two radios.
Radios can be tracked using the in-built GPS that calculates and reports the position to the dispatcher every 60 seconds. The GPS status is also displayed on the radio.
When a radio is suspected of being abused or stolen the dispatcher can temporarily deactivate the device.
The UniGuard PTT system is capable of full over-air radio re-programming.
Devices can be charged using a micro-USB from any 5 volt USB port.
