TEKTELIC’s FINCH [SafeAlert Indoor Sensor] is a compact, mobile, wireless BLE panic button that transmits an emergency signal from any location. FINCH is ideal for lone workers, seniors, and children to signal for help in an emergency situation. When triggered, this device instantly sends an SOS message containing location details to designated support staff or security personnel to ensure a rapid response in the event of a panic situation. This device combines the long-range, low-power communication capabilities of LoRaWAN® with the universal availability and reliability of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) to provide real-time location information. FINCH is seamlessly integrated with TEKTELIC’s endto-end IoT solution.

Is it Possible to Integrate FINCH with IoT End-to-End Solutions?
FINCH, as well as the other TEKTELIC devices, can be seamlessly integrated with end-to-end IoT solutions. It transmits data via LoRaWAN® and BLE, so it can be added to the LoRaWAN® Networks for connecting it to the main server. FINCH is easily interconnected with other IoT devices, so it will be a great part of your IoT ecosystem.
What are the Main Areas of Application?
FINCH is suitable for a wide range of deployment areas because safety is one of the main priorities everywhere. The main ones are Oil & Gas industry, Mining, Healthcare, and Manufactory but it still can be useful in Hospitality and Warehouses. FINCH is a perfect solution for ensuring lone workers’ safety, children monitoring, and senior care, so it’s a really useful device in this regard.
What are FINCH’s Operational Characteristics?
The operational characteristics of FINCH include an impressive operational temperature range, long battery life, and reliable transmission capabilities. As for the temperature range, FINCH can operate in environments with a temperature difference of -20°C to +85°C, so any manufacturing worker can wear it without fear of disconnection from a server and giving up transmission capabilities. Long battery life of up to 5 years, in turn, ensures that you will not have to buy additional batteries regularly and spend more money than you’ve expected. Transmission capabilities have proved their reliability by providing options to transmit data via LoRaWAN® and BLE; besides, it has an internal antenna, which ensures the transmission.
