DENVER, June 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ —

    WHO:       Mark Jarman, president
                Inovonics is a leader in high-performance wireless sensor
                networks for commercial and life safety applications.

                In the wake of two high-profile alleged sexual assaults at
                New York City hotels, management officials are turning to
                innovative wireless technologies to provide hotel staff with
                portable emergency communications devices. Hotel chains are
                now beginning to require staff to carry "panic buttons" which
                will allow employees to quickly and easily alert and summon
                security officials for help should an incident occur. The
                panic button includes sensors that are modeled after medical
                alert buttons for the elderly, allowing housekeeping and
                other hotel staff to quickly alert security should the need
    WHAT:       arise.

                Workplace safety is increasingly becoming a top priority for
                both employees and employers. According to research from the
                Rape, Abuse  and Incest National Network (RAINN) every two
                minutes someone in the United States is sexually assaulted.
                (http://www.rainn.org/statistics) In response, employers
                are developing workplace violence protection programs, which
                include the use of silent and personal alarms, the
                establishment of an emergency communication system, and the
                implementation of rules to protect employees from risk of
                assault. Wireless pendants increasingly are popular due to
                the mobility, low cost, reliability and inconspicuous
                features that allow employees to alert security officials of
    HOW:        an incident with the simple click of a button.

                With millions of wireless devices installed worldwide,
                Inovonics wireless pendants are field-proven and offer the
                reliability and flexibility employers need to help guard
                their company's most valuable assets, their employees.
                Employees are seldom stationary and often require personal
                alarm pendants as they roam throughout a facility, such as a
                hotel or resort area, or even into a parking lot. Inovonics
                wireless security solutions have a proven history of
                safeguarding employees using personal alarm pendants that are
                easy to use and designed to go wherever the employee may be.
                In addition to roaming panic alarms, pendants can be worn on
                a necklace, belt clip, wristband, or mounted in a fixed

                Mr. Jarman is available to discuss the latest advancement and
                trends regarding wireless pendants for employee safety
