Fen were able to hit the ground running and using their considerable skills and experience in Bluetooth product development, were able to quickly bring Securecom to a point where we were able to demonstrate a complete solution. As a result, we have asked Fen to continue to support Securecom towards Bluetooth Qualification and full production.

The Brief

Securecom needed support in developing a novel Bluetooth personal safety product. The requirement was for the product to function by pressing a panic button to wirelessly trigger an alarm, through either a Bluetooth-enabled mobile or satellite phone. The alarm was to be in the form of a text message containing location information.

The Solution

Fen worked with the Securecom’s engineering team to evolve the requirements and assess a number of routes to a solution. To best support the client, Fen worked with their hardware team and developed all the software to implement the specification and interface with a number of mobile and satellite handsets. Fen also have provided continuing ad-hoc support for the client through their ongoing development and demo timetable.
