Icom UK’s two Security Management System products, i-LOC and i-READ are now compatible with IDAS (Icom Digital Advanced System). As well as being compatible with Icom analogue models, both systems now benefit from the 6.25kHz channel spacing, digitally modulated clear voice and secure conversation that IDAS digital has to offer.

i-READ (Guard Tour Management System)
The I-READ Guard Tour Management System uses a specially adapted Icom radio to scan waypoint badges laid on a predetermined route. This information acts as a time date stamp/proof of patrolling and is sent back to a central radio base station and stored on a PC. In addition voice, text and status messages are recorded at the base PC for audit purposes. i-READ is an ideal tool for managing security rounds, asset control and maintenance, or even to verify personnel performance.

i-LOC (Security Management System)
The i-LOC Security Management System is similar to i-Read but is zonal, covering a wide area rather than a specific location. i-LOC uses strategically placed low power beacons around a building, which periodically transmit their identity. A receiver fitted inside an Icom handportable receives transmissions from the beacons when the user of the portable passes in their vicinity. Then the identity received by the radio is, according to the mode chosen, transmitted automatically or by manual action to the base radio placed in the security office, updating the users’ position. As with i-READ, the i-LOC radio is capable of voice, text and status messaging.

Ian Lockyer, Marketing Manager of Icom UK Ltd, said, "The addition of these products to the widening IDAS portfolio means that there are now even more solutions for businesses who want to improve both productivity and health and safety, such as opening up opportunities in the Facilities Management , education and security markets."
