ERS Wireless is Taking Hospital Safety to The Next Level
ERS Wireless’s Safe Healthcare Ecosystem brings together innovative technology you need to detect, analyze, communicate and respond, we’re reducing the downtime of hospital operations when incidents occur, enhancing employee morale, increasing productivity and maintaining efficiency and effectiveness throughout the patient care continuum.
For several decades, ERS Wireless has partnered with healthcare professionals across Indiana and Northern Kentucky to create a safer and more secure healthcare environment and experience for patients, staff and administrators.
Today, ERS Wireless collaborates with healthcare facilities to leverage Motorola Solutions unique end-to-end security solutions portfolio that unifies voice, video, data and analytics on to one single platform. This platform of interoperable technology provides the foundation of safety and security, you need to address the unique challenges of your facility.
From supporting patient care, to protecting patients, visitors and staff, to securing equipment and pharmaceuticals, to enabling efficiencies and improving productivity ERS Wireless has worked with healthcare providers and Motorola Solutions to reimagine how our advanced voice, video and data technologies can address these challenges and deliver better communications, interconnectivity and security to keep hospitals safe.
When facilities deploy our interoperable platform of voice, video and data technologies through the systems analytics and Artificial Intelligence (AI) what were previously disparate technologies can now communicate and learn from each other. Information flows from cameras, to radios, to smart devices, to security dispatch centers and critical information is now shared and made actionable.
Our Safe Hospitals integrated ecosystem allows you to address everyday concerns and emergency situations through four key pillars — Detect, Analyze, Communicate and Respond.
The ability to oversee your facilities can be a challenging from the constant flow of patients, visitors and staff through multiple points of entry and at all times of the day and night, detection plays a critical role in improving situational awareness and decreasing response times to operational problems and potential threats.
A hospital’s ability to detect, view and monitor who is entering your facilities is based on an intelligent video surveillance and access control system. An artificial intelligence (AI) and video analytics security system like Motorola Solutions Avigilon Access Control Manager (ACM™) provides superior facility management with powerful end-to-end security solutions such as alarms and identity management to help monitor and secure sites.
ERS Wireless features a broad portfolio of cameras from Avigilon and Pelco with an array of specialized cameras, such as fisheye for large recovery wards or waiting rooms, multi-sensor cameras for hallways, and high-definition cameras for parking lots to provide seamless coverage across large areas.
License Plate Recognition:
LPR cameras allow hospital security officials and local public safety the opportunity to monitor any potential threat vehicles approaching on local high-traffic areas or entering hospital parking lots.
Watch List Alerting:
Authorized personnel can create a watch list of people of interest that notifies security personnel when they penetrate predetermined perimeters or unauthorized zones.
Manage patient, visitor and administration access to buildings, restricted areas or access to secured pharmaceuticals and equipment within the hospital using card holder information with instant detection of individuals at access points.
Concealed Weapons Detection:
Artificial intelligence and advanced sensors detect a wide range of concealed weapons and threats and immediately alert staff while enabling high throughput without the need to wand individuals and bags- unlike standard metal detectors. This solution immediately notifies staff of threats directly on their device.
The responsibility for monitoring a large healthcare facility filled with secure areas, public spaces, critical equipment and hundreds of patients, visitors and staff can be very challenging. Identifying unwanted individuals, tracking persons of interest and recognizing hazardous situations in this environment is demanding.
Once suspicious or unusual activity is detected, your ability to analyze the data, communicate and respond before an incident occurs is what differentiates a Safe Healthcare Ecosystem. Your integrated video surveillance technology and analytics software enables the notification of these insights of unusual activity into actionable management.
This software application features analytic technology that allows you to identify individuals with facial recognition and physical descriptions such as clothing color, gender or age.
This solution allows you to map or retrace the movements of individuals when video surveillance integrates with ID badge or credential activity and visually retrace campus movements.
Unusual Motion Detection:
Identify atypical events with artificial intelligence that “learns” typical activities and flags any unusual motion or activity and notify authorized personnel before suspicious activity escalates.
A software application that identifies where unusual activity or immediate visual attention is required on your surveillance console, this app highlights activities identified by color-coded hexagons, focusing your attention on what’s critical.
Dependable and clear wireless radio communication within your facilities and across campuses that are seamlessly connected to local public safety authorities is critical to creating a Safer Healthcare Ecosystem. ERS Wireless understands the importance of creating a collaborative healthcare environment with reliable communication between departments that allows staff and administrators to focus their attention on what’s really important providing superior patient care while protecting patients, visitors and staff.

Public Safety & Cellular DAS:
ERS Wireless is a specialist in deploying and maintaining Distributed Antenna Systems that amplify radio or cellular carrier signals to provide enhanced signal coverage.
Today, facilities need to be compliant with the local FCC code typically mandated by the National Fire Protection Agency or International Fire Code for in-building Public Safety wireless radio signal coverage. These mandates are in place to ensure first responders have ample radio signal strength in vulnerable coverage areas such as stairwells, basements, parking garages, electrical closets and elevators.
When it comes to Private LTE and Cellular-DAS ERS Wireless is equally proficient in designing, installing and maintaining wireless networks. With the proliferation of wireless technology that supports today’s healthcare environments supporting patient care, record management and security applications in-building signal coverage can all too frequently become compromised resulting in lost productivity or worse compromising patient and caregiver safety.
To help healthcare providers overcome these wireless coverage challenges ERS Wireless has played a critical role in helping facilities and healthcare campuses deploy and maintain end-to-end wireless solutions ensuring an environment that is safe and secure for employees, visitors, property, and assets.
