IK Multimedia Announces Safe Spacer™ a Wearable Social Distance Watch/Device
IK’s upcoming promises an easy-to-use way through a wearable device that offers distance alarm monitoring for workplaces and public spaces. Safe Spacer™ is an innovative, lightweight wearable device that helps workers and visitors maintain safe social distancing, enabling MI and other industries to safely re-open and operate with peace of mind.
Each Safe Spacer includes a unique ID tag and built-in memory that can be optionally associated to workers’ names for tracing any unintentional contact, to keep organizations and their employees secure. To maintain the highest standard of privacy, no data other than the Safe Spacer ID and proximity is stored.
