What does it mean to connect safety devices through on-premises docking stations or gateways versus direct-to-cloud? How does it impact your safety program, site awareness, incident response time and protocols?  

If you’re trying to decide on what’s the right safety solution for your operations, you likely have those questions and more about data, privacy, reporting, and emergency response capabilities. You might also be concerned about how your choice impacts your team’s well-being when an incident happens.  

To help demystify the differences, here are 7 reasons why cloud-connected safety solutions outperform on-premises options: 

  1. Improved awareness and remote visibility – cloud-connected solutions provide real-time updates and access to critical safety data from anywhere, enhancing overall situational awareness.  
  2. Over-the-air updates that save time and add value – automatic updates ensure that your safety equipment is always up to date, reducing downtime and maintenance efforts.  
  3. A 360-degree view of the operations with no data silos – centralized data storage eliminates information silos, providing a comprehensive vie of operations.  
  4. Integration of third-party professionals monitoring to optimize responses – cloud solutions allow for seamless integration with third-party monitoring services, improving response times and effectiveness.  
  5. Enhanced data security, reliability and privacy – robust security protocols in cloud infrastructure ensure that your safety data is protected, reliable, and private. 
  6. Improved collaboration with push-to-talk – real-time communication features like push-to-talk enhance team collaboration and response coordination during emergencies.  
  7. Boosted scalability and cost structure – cloud solutions offer flexible scalability to meet changing needs, often at a lower cost compared to maintaining on-premises systems.
