Launched in 2013 by a 30-year pioneer in the emergency management technology industry, CommandWear Systems is leveraging the latest mobile and wearable technology, including smartwatches, to streamline operations and enhance personnel safety.
The CommandWear software platform securely integrates data from sensors in wearable and mobile devices to give field teams and control centers unprecedented, real-time situational awareness and communications to the last tactical mile. Customers simply install an Android or iOS app to existing smartphones, optionally install the ‘Responder Watch’ app on tethered or standalone LTE-connected smartwatches, and securely login through the app or web browser. A web services API allows data to be shared with existing dispatch, crisis management, security or other corporate systems.
The CommandWear system provides:
- Real-time monitoring of personnel locations and status
- Secure bi-directional text-based messaging
- Picture/video sharing and remote video streaming
- Map annotation and sharing
- Heart rate monitoring and alerting
- Historical replay of events and data export
- An open API to add IoT sensors
The system has been proven effective in executing a faster and more accurate response while increasing personnel safety.
CommandWear has successfully deployed this system with police, fire, emergency medical and security organization across North America since 2014 and has recently begun expansion into international markets.
