Mobile personnel often work in hazardous locations that pose countless threats to lone-worker safety. Our intrinsically safe monitoring device now offers two-way voice calling. The employee-worn Loner® M6i is a safety monitoring device with 3G wireless cellular communications that was designed to monitor work-alone personnel in hazardous locations—inside facilities, in between sites and in the field.
The Loner M6i incorporates patent-pending technology and is the first dedicated monitoring safety device that is designed to ATEX requirements for intrinsic safety. It complies with work-alone safety legislation mandated in some jurisdictions and is easy to use.
Easily and comfortably worn by an employee, Loner M6i provides a crucial lifeline to monitoring personnel, empowering your teams with instant awareness when a safety incident occurs - be it an injury, health event or physical assault.
A new blue LiveResponse indicator provides comfort and confidence to a lone worker who has been injured, faces a health incident or physical assault. The blue light activates when the live monitoring team has received the safety alert and initiated the emergency response process.
When subscribed for a voice plan, Loner M6 automatically answers a two-way voice call from the monitoring team without having to press a button. An industry-leading speaker design projects the monitoring team’s voice loud and clear. A sensitive microphone captures the employee’s voice with ease. Loner M6i can be toggled into handset mode for loud environments with a simple press of the check-in button.
New 3G wireless communications provide leading coverage in over 100 countries—many of which provide a combined coverage footprint from multiple carriers.
Loner M6i can automatically detect falls with True Fall Detection®, incorporates no-motion detection (man-down alarm) and if one of your employee/s is/are unable to request help manually, it automatically alerts falls to respond to a check-in request.
If your lone worker needs help and can trigger an alert manually, the red Loner M6 emergency latch is released as easily as pulling a fire alarm. Compared to an SOS button, the emergency latch is easy to trigger instantly—even if your work-alone employee’s vision is compromised. And, unlike an SOS button, it doesn’t need to be pressed and held for seconds the employee may not have. Loner M6 can also be configured for silent alert mode if the lone worker faces risk of physical assault.
Loner M6i delivers a powerful combination of technologies that can pinpoint the precise location of an employee—indoors, outside and on the road. New assisted-GPS technology provides a precise location when leaving buildings and outdoors. Blackline’s proprietary Loner Beacon indoor location technology delivers precise positioning in the most complex of facilities. Emergency responders are directed to the lone worker’s precise location so time is never lost searching.

Loner M6 by Blackline Safety
|This allows the lone worker to manually request help with a quick release. Similar to pulling a fire alarm, the emergency latch can be triggered quickly, even if vision is impaired. Compared to other devices that require the press-and-hold of an emergency button for seconds the user may not have—our emergency latch is quick and confident. Once triggered, the Loner device will use audible and visual indicators to attract attention from others nearby.|
|Silent Emergency Request||This programmable feature is for lone workers who interact with the public and may benefit from a discrete method to request help. Designed for threatening scenarios that may escalate, the employee can silently request help by pressing and holding down the emergency latch, without aggravating the situation.|
True Fall Detection
|Loner devices are able to automatically detect the signature movements of a fall in contrast to other activities—such as walking down stairs or jumping off the tailgate of a truck. If a lone worker falls and does not get back up, the device will use an audible, visual and tactile request for the employee to confirm his or her safety status by pressing the check-in button. If the lone worker does not respond within a preset time, it communicates a safety alert in real-time to monitoring personnel to deliver the most efficient emergency response possible.|
|Like Blackline’s True Fall Detection® technology, no-motion detection uses three-axis accelerometers to automatically monitor the employee’s movements. If the user does not move sufficiently within a configurable interval, the device will use an audible, visual, and tactile request for your employee to confirm his or her safety status by pressing the check-in button. If the lone worker does not respond within a preset time, it communicates a safety alert in real-time to monitoring personnel to deliver a timely, pin-point emergency response.|
|Organizations now have a method to regularly and automatically confirm their employee’s well-being throughout the work day— without an impact to their productivity or your bottom line. Loner devices can be configured to request an employee check-in with a timer that suits the risk level of their environment and activity. The Loner device will use an audible, visual and tactile request for the employee to confirm his or her safety status by pressing the check-in button. If the employee does not respond within a preset time, it communicates a safety alert in real-time to monitoring personnel to manage an immediate emergency response to the user’s location.|
|Intrinsically Safe||The Loner M6i is certified intrinsically safe according to UL913 Class I, Division 1 and Class II, Division 1.|
|GPS Location Technology||For precise positioning outdoors, a large GPS antenna and high sensitivity receiver design provides industry-leading, weak-signal tracking. In the event that one of your lone workers enters a facility where GPS signals are unavailable and Loner Beacons are not deployed, Loner devices always remember their last outside position. When a safety alert is triggered, Loner devices always report their location to monitoring personnel. An optional breadcrumb history can be generated with locations being reported to monitoring infrastructure every 5 minutes.|
|Indoor Location Technology||
Layers of concrete, steel and windows with metallic film often block GPS satellite signals. The Loner M6 and M6i are compatible with Blackline’s Loner Beacon location technology that blankets buildings with reliable positioning signals where GPS is unavailable or imprecise. The result is a seamless capability to locate your employee when help is needed, regardless of where he or she is working—outdoors, near a large structure or inside complex facilities.
And, the Loner Portal monitoring web application provides you with a floor plan map overlay that corresponds to the lone worker’s precise location. If the facility features multiple floors, the employee will be mapped on the correct floor play layer.
|Durable & Weatherproof||Loner devices are built to withstand everyday use in a variety of environments, from utilities to healthcare. They are designed to meet the IP65 ingress protection level against dust and high-pressure water jets and are designed to survive six foot drops onto concrete floors.|
|Loner Portal||All of Blackline’s employee-worn safety monitoring devices and smartphone apps communicate regularly with our monitoring infrastructure. Our cloud-hosted Loner Portal safety monitoring application is the centralized headquarters that enables efficient and comprehensive online management of all fielded Loner products and associated safety alerts they generate. A comprehensive safety alert management workflow empowers monitoring personnel with the situational awareness required to quickly respond to safety alerts, assess the situation, escalate within your organization and dispatch emergency responders—whether these are nearby co-workers or local 9-1-1 services.|
