myDevices to enable panic buttons to operate where cellular and Wi-Fi signals are typically unavailable

In 2018, the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA) announced a new workplace safety initiative designed to provide emergency communications and location-based services for employees in the hospitality industry, the company said.

Backed by major hotels, including Marriott International, InterContinental, Hilton, and Hyatt, the 5-Star Promise has committed to providing panic buttons to hospitality workers across the United States.

Unfortunately, while 4G LTE signals from all carriers freely propagate in open areas, inside buildings, it´s severely limited by heavy building material that blocks, absorbs, reflects, and degrades cell and Wi-Fi signals — limiting coverage and creating dead zones. These dead zones are an inconvenience for travelers but can lead to catastrophic outcomes if a panic button fails to connect.

myDevices´ No Dead Zone™ panic button technology eliminates the dead zone problem by combining cellular, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and LoRaWAN® protocols to provide comprehensive coverage across the entire property no matter how challenging the physical environment.

myDevices´ Plug & Play solutions are available through Sprint Business as well as a growing network of channel partners. For more information on the No Dead Zone™ panic buttons, visit
