Zipit Wireless Announces Partnership with PursuitAlert Public Safety Application

Zipit, a leader in the Internet of Things, can provide secure device connectivity anywhere in the world, as well as the ongoing device management, billing and support capabilities necessary to capitalize on highly sought after subscription-based IoT business models.

PursuitAlert, an SC Launch Client Company, is the new standard in a patented state of the art mobile warning system to alert motorists and civilians of immediate danger, within a three-mile radius, of an active Police pursuit by a participating law enforcement agency.

PursuitAlert is taking advantage of Zipit’s IoT Connect product to securely connect the device installed in police cruisers to the nationwide AT&T cellular network.
In addition, Zipit’s IoT Device Manager automates cloud provisioning and over-the-air device upgrade capabilities and Zipit’s IoT Administrator is used to provide fleet monitoring analytics to law enforcement agencies. The comprehensive solution enables near real-time communication with end-users that have downloaded the PursuitAlert smartphone application.

The PursuitAlert solution is designed to send high-priority mobile alerts, similar in nature to amber alerts, in order to rapidly notify civilians of a nearby police pursuit in progress that could pose as a safety hazard. The solution consists of a connected device, a cloud back-end infrastructure and smartphone applications for end-users.

 

“We believe PursuitAlert’s technology will have great potential to save lives and mitigate pursuit-related injuries that unfortunately happen to innocent bystanders,” said Frank Greer, CEO of Zipit. “Zipit is proud to support PursuitAlert’s team as they help law enforcement agencies address this challenge.”
