About smart security
One of the biggest challenges and responsibilities of every company is to provide safety to its employees – especially when they need to work in possibly dangerous areas. The development of new technologies like wireless communication and IoT made it much simpler.
Smart security became almost a separate industry and it’s delivering everyday safety to the places where its most needed – like airports, public services or simply – smart home security.
A need of smart security solutions

The company provides cleaning services in many different public places, including trains and train stations. On occasions, the employees experience harassment from persons present in those locations. Hago Next posed the question how technology could be used to protect their employees better and how they could call for help quickly, without risking escalating the situation. We developed a smart security solution for them.
Being an innovative company, Hago Next was looking for a partner to provide them with solutions to capture the full potential of the Internet of Things development. As a System Integrator, Thaumatec has the expertise on the whole spectrum of Internet of Things technologies. With a wide experience in embedded software, wireless connectivity, and mobile applications, Thaumatec was able to act as the one-stop-shop for Hago Next with a smart security solution.
Based on a standard SmartWatch, Thaumatec developed different smart security features that enable employees to send a silent alarm to the central operations room, so that silently and immediately they receive help. By making this a silent feature, the employees avoid the situation to escalate because help has been called. Having these features built-in a SmartWatch provides security and reliability to its employees.
