The SMART1 just got a little smarter (and it will get even smarter!)

 Our DECT smartphone, the SMART1, has many unique advantages and is used by customers who require a defined radio coverage and reliable on-site voice, messaging and alarm connectivity. These customers operate in industries such as marine, security institutions, hotel and hospitality and elderly care.SMART1 Android ver.5

 SMART1 is appreciated for its user-friendly and content-rich user interface and see precise location functionality as an essential feature for the backup team to locate a colleague in distress. This is where the SMART1 platform from COBS provides an outstanding communication solution.

We recently made a few generic improvements and further developed the Push-To-Talk (PTT), locationing and messaging service to the platform.

“Our DECT platform, including SMART1 is used in risk-exposed environments where reliability on the wireless network and connected handsets is critical to the user. It's important that we are constantly looking for improvements to create a safer work environment for our users," says Mikael Hamlin, developer at COBS.

We continue to extend the SMART1 software in order to further satisfy our customers' expectations for the platform.
