OVERVIEW
What is Staff Safety
Complying with the growing number of ordinances that now require hotels to provide panic buttons, staff safety technology ensures that employees can alert first responders as soon as they feel endangered. By simply pressing a distress button on a keychain, hotel staff can instantly transmit their precise real time location so that help always arrives swiftly. This latest technology provides hotel staff such as housekeepers with the vital assurance that assistance is always moments away in the event of a threat to their safety. The best personal safety devices work always and everywhere to ensure that personal safety alarm gadgets are able to act as a self-defense mechanism in dangerous situations.
Finding the right Staff Safety solution for your hotel depends on several variables ranging from user experience and pricing to functionality and support. This guide is designed to help you identify the best Staff Safety vendors, questions to ask on demos, read unbiased reviews from similar hoteliers and so much more. (including our 2022 Staff Safety Guide)
BENEFITS
Benefits of personal safety devices for hospitality

Hotel employees servicing guest rooms have long been exposed to numerous threats due to the fact that they typically work alone in such areas. From all too common occurrences of assault or theft, the real danger that housekeepers can find themselves in has resulted in employees feeling a sense of fear in carrying out their daily responsibilities, with hotel operations suffering and opening themselves up to legal liability. Staff safety technology finally resolves these challenges by returning sentiments of safety to employees and providing them with the protection that they deserve. According to a survey of 487 housekeepers in Chicago in fact, 96 percent indicated that they would feel safer if they were equipped with a wearable panic button. Not only providing hoteliers with an ability to mitigate or altogether avoid threats to staff, staff safety technologies further allow hotel employees to concentrate on tasks at hand with the knowledge that their security is always a priority.

  1. Minimize risk & liability: One of the industry’s largest costs is staff turnover with the Bureau of Labor Statistics reporting a hospitality turnover rate of six percent each month. Providing employees with a staff safety solution provides assurances that they are working in a safe environment and that they are an integral part of hotel operations, reducing the chances that staff begin to look elsewhere for employment.

  2. Reduce employee turnover: Employees that do not need to fear for their safety are able to more effectively complete their tasks on a daily basis. This results in responsibilities being completed faster and with more care. Staff members can also feel more confident in approaching and interacting with guests to ensure that their needs are met, resulting in improved hotel reputations and guest scores.

  3. Employee satisfaction & peace of mind: Employees that do not need to fear for their safety are able to more effectively complete their tasks on a daily basis. This results in responsibilities being completed faster and with more care. Staff members can also feel more confident in approaching and interacting with guests to ensure that their needs are met, resulting in improved hotel reputations and guest scores.

FEATURES
Key features to look for when choosing a staff safety device solution
  1. Space mapping: Different providers offer different approaches to space mapping ranging from beacon hardware to proprietary signal scanning technologies which offer different levels of accuracy and investment.

  2. Network requirements: In order to locate each device, each ESD requires a network connection.  Some ESD solutions leverage and utilize existing hotel wi-fi while others leverage existing LPWAN signals.  The latter tends to offer several unique advantages ranging from eliminating impact on guest wi-fi to reduction in dead spots and gaps.

  3. Real time location updates: Real time location tracking is critical which means the network scanning and update times should be fairly regular to keep location tracking up to date ensuring that responders reach the correct scene of an emergency as quick as possible. 

  4. Form factor & durability: Since staff carry their ESD device throughout their shift form factor is absolutely critical ranging from the size and weight to the durability of the devices should they get dropped on concrete, submerged underwater or encounter any other occupational hazards.

  5. Silent vs audible alerts: Some panic button presses are pre-emptive or require subtlety via a silent alarm while other emergency scenarios benefit from a loud audible noise to ward off predators and draw attention of others near by to assist.

  6. Haptic feedback: In scenarios where a silent alarm is required, its critical that the device offers a way for the staff member who pressed it to know that the signal was sent successfully.  Haptic feedback provides a vibration to alert the user that the device worked properly and help is on the way. 

  7. Customizable escalations: Each property is different and has different needs in terms of who needs to receive which notifications, from which employees, when and how (email, text, web dashboard, etc) which is why customizable escalations are a key feature.  

  8. Historical logs: Historical logs help enhance response efficiency while reducing legal liability by providing in-depth details/evidence on actions during a specific alert in the event of an investigation or court case.

  9. Add-on functionality: Once a property has been wired up with the infrastructure to be location aware, there are many other use cases and applications that can be added on depending on the provider ranging from asset tracking, door open/close sensors and utility monitoring.

PRICING
What are the typical pricing models and ranges that I should budget for?
  1. Hardware Expense.  Typical price range: $5-$40/device

  2. Implementation & Training.  Typical price range: $5-$20/device

  3. Monthly Subscription.  Typical price range: $1-$3/device/month

IMPLEMENTATION
What does the typical implementation timeline and process look like to go live?

2-4 weeks OR 2-4 days.  By working with an established and reputable provider, hoteliers can expect a seamless implementation process with minimal disruption to existing operations. The key difference between implementation times is whether or not the provider you choose offers a beacon-less solution or not.  Beacons require hardware in each guest room and common area that your hotel wants to activate location awareness for which requires a more involved implementation process, coordination and in some cases taking rooms offline for a short period of time.  Beacon-less solutions on the other hand require a 10-minute scan per area and no hardware meaning implementation can be done quickly and easily following room cleaning schedules without taking rooms offline.

Help hoteliers maximize the use of technologies they already use, discover new ones they’ve never heard of and more effectively navigate the complex software buying journey.
Vision
To make the hotel industry the most technologically advanced industry on the planet.

We sell different types of products and services to technology companies to help them educate buyers, build their brand and grow their install base. These services are usually sold through bundled membership packages but are also sold a la carte and include: sponsored content, advertising, lead generation and marketing campaigns. While members do receieve many benefits to help improve their presence ranging from enhanced premium profiles to review collection services—membership status and sponsorship do not influence the HT Score ranking methodology in any way.

We rank products based on our proprietary ranking algorithm, the HT Score. The HT Score is an aggregated score out of 100 that is relative within each category that is intended to encapsulate key variables in the buying process including: customer ratings & reviews, partner ecosystem, integration availability, customer support, geographic reach and more.

Similar to REVPAR for hotels, the HT Score is intended to be a normalizing metric to be able to better compare different vendors. Instead of rate and occupancy, the two prinmary drivers are a blend of review quantity and average ratings. Also similar to REVPAR, the HT Score is a metric to aid in decision making but is not intended to be used as a sole factor when selecting vendors.

Maintaining independence and editorial freedom is essential to our mission of empowering hoteliers.

Core Hotel Tech Report content is never influenced by vendors and sponsored content is always clearly designated as such. Our team will only write sponsored content about products that we have either (1) demoed (2) gathered extensive user research on or (3) used ourselves.

To further protect the integrity of our editorial content, we keep a strict separation between our sales teams and authors to remove any pressure or influence on our analyses and research.

HTR crowd sources tens of thousands of verified reviews every year and aggregates hundreds of thousands of other data points ranging from expert recommendations to product integrations data which are instantly analyzed and made available to millions of hoteliers around the globe to discover, vet and research digital products for free on the platform to make technology decisions faster, easier and less risky-thus speeding up the pace of global innovation and adoption of technology.

Choosing the right software for your hotel depends on dozens of variables many of which can be quantified based on the characteristics of your property but many of which also come down to personal preference. Is your hotel a small property with limited budget? Or is your property a luxury resort with lots of outlets and high ADR? HTR is designed to offer dynamic filters to quickly be able to personalize the data set to your characteristics. We also break down hotels into key segments/personas based on common property characteristics that typically service as indicators that drive similar product decisions which are intended to help you save time and quickly identify the best match for your hotel or portfolio.

While HTR’s data set is constantly growing making its recommendations more representative and accurate over time, our programatic recommendations based on the HT Score, data and segment popularity are intended to serve as a tool for you to leverage in the buying journey but do not replace thorough due dilligence and research. No two hotels are alike and most purchasing decisions also include personal preferences which is why we highly recommend that buyers consider a minimum of 3-5 vendors during the research processthat you get live demos and price quotes from to be able to make an informed decision.
