ibeaconIndoor and Outdoor Monitoring

The MyTraq application is developed to easily connect third party mobile phones with integrated GPS to the Oysta platform. MyTraq can be easily (pre-) installed on any suitable device.

Using advanced Bluetooth iBeacon (low energy proximity sensing) technologies to determine a device’s physical presence indoors. When the device moves outdoors it will pick up satellite signals to use GPS technology to plot movements.
When the device moves outdoors it will pick up satellite signals to use GPS technology to plot movements.
MyTraq also supports proof-of-presence management using NFC tags.

This technology is ideal for large sites such as; production facilities, warehouses,
construction sites and energy plants where there is a need to monitor the movements of staff and contractors.

Staff working remotely

Lone workers broadly fit into three categories:

  • Employees working outside or normal hours
  • Employees working in direct contact with the public
  • Employees working remotely


Oysta provides a comprehensive management tool for your remote workers. If you are equipping your mobile staff with a lone worker device or smartphone app, our online platforms could potentially revolutionise how you manage the team, allocate tasks or validate the completion of activities.


Monitoring inside complex environments

Do you have staff that work inside and outside? Perhaps in larger, more complex environments such as; warehousing, logistics, portering and hospital staff, or factories and production plants? Oysta has the solution for you:


MyTraq utilises advanced Bluetooth iBeacons (low energy proximity sensing) technologies to determine a device’s physical presence indoors.


When the device moves outdoors it will pick up satellite signals to use GPS technology to plot movements. MyTraq also supports the integration of CAD drawings to overlay your building structures to provide accurate indoor positioning.


This combination of technologies is ideal for field-based staff and large or complex sites where there is a need to monitor the movements of staff and contractors.

High-risk environments

When your lone workers operate in high-risk or hazardous situations, it is essential that additional monitoring is put in place. Our service allows:

  • Welfare check while working in vulnerable/hazardous conditions
  • Detecting and reporting falls or “man-down” incidents
  • Raising the alarm if injured or immobilized
  • Raising the alarm if threatened or attacked
  • Checking on the location and safety of colleagues
  • Used as part of a wider emergency response service

BS8484 Compliant

The internet is awash with companies offering lone worker devices or applications that appear to offer mobile safety; however the sheer volume of vendors, all offering apparently ‘similar’ services will of course lead to confusion.


This is why the British Standards Institute published BS8484; a lone worker devices and services standard. It provides a definitive benchmark that enables employers to assess providers using an acknowledged industry standard.


Significantly, BS8484 has already been adopted by ACPO (Association of Chief Police Officers) meaning that only solutions complying with BS8484 and the associated ARC (Alarm Receiving Centre) standard; BS5979 CATII, will be permitted to receive an immediate police response to lone worker alarms from a local constabulary.
