Lynx + Versity VoWiFi smartphones

Lynx is a solution for Versity VoWiFi smartphones where internet connectivity may not be present (there is no dependency on internet or Cloud connectivity).

Using Lynx together with Versity 92-series gives you a very robust and cost-efficient solution when co-existence of more data driven, content-rich apps are needed and where DECT is not an option.

Lynx can also be used with the larger Versity 95/96-series of VoWiFi smartphones which beside the larger screen also adds a fully uninterrupted 24/7 communication thanks to Versity’s hot-swappable batteries.

The SMART1 from COBS just got a little smarter with Pie (aka Android 9)


Our smartphone, the SMART1, has many advantages thanks to its unique features which differentiate this phone from the ordinary smartphone. With SMART1, you get personal alarm features, Push-To-Talk (PTT), precise locationing, and a lot more. The platform, infrastructure and handset devices provide a self-contained and cost-efficient system with a radio coverage and end-to-end functionality that is owned and fully controlled by the customer. For these reasons, the SMART1 is often used in risk-exposed environments where safety and reliability are critical factors and of concern to the end-users and their organizations. SMART1 often gets appraisals for its user-friendly interface and precise location functionality which are essential features, for example, to a backup team to be able to locate a colleague in distress.

So, if you have a work environment where uninterrupted communication, personal safety and workflow are of top priority, then SMART1 might well be the smartest option for you.

In addition, SMART1 comes with Android 9, which provides a more powerful solution and enables significantly more workflow apps that benefit the user and the local organization.

Note that the SMART1 handset is compatible, on the DECT side, with COBS SMART DECT system but also the COBS CWS systems, as well as Spectralink's various DECT systems.

COBS introduces PAF+, a fall alarm transmitter


According to World Health Organization data, falls are the second cause of worldwide mortality from accidental injurie, and those over 65 are the main victims of this type of accident. There are 37.3 million falls annually that require medical attention.

This information represents a strong financial pressure on national health systems when their resources are increasingly tight.

A fall detection sensor can be an important part of a care system, providing greater security and independence to the user, facilitating the work of caregivers and family members and easing potential burden to service providers. For these reasons, COBS has extended the portfolio with PAF+, a small wristband alarm trigger that monitors people at risk of falling by detecting falls and automatically reporting them. Target users are, among others, older people, users with Parkinson´s disease and people with impaired mobility.

PAF+ is a well-integrated device into COBS ecosystem, a platform where you have full control of alarms and events, letting you know every detail in your installation and guaranteeing the most advanced care service in the socio-health world. In addition, PAF+ provides all the functionality of a standard PAT+ e.g. sending an alarm with the push of a button.

How it works

PAF+ is developed to detect hard falls in situations where the user cannot press the button after the fall, including:

  • Slipping and falling backwards
  • Falling due to loss of consciousness
  • Tripping on an object and falling forward

In case of a fall, PAF+ will detect it and send an alarm to a care unit, which will alert the staff.

Soft falls with impact limited by a hindering object or by the user catching himself, will not be detected by PAF+. However, the user can always send the alarm manually. Furthermore, it sends different alarm types, such as user alarm, low battery, or programmable auto test alarm, making it easier for the alarm receiver to identify the root cause of the alarm and respond accordingly.

Thanks to COBS bidirectional radio the user can recognize that the alarm has reached the receiver and the user can stay calm.
