Would it be beneficial to hear short-range radio communications without crosstalk interference? With Sensear’s short-range technology, or SR for short, workers are capable of having headset-to-headset communication up to 150 feet from one another, while having crystal-clear communication in high-noise work environments. Furthermore, this requires no communication equipment other than the headsets themselves. So, workers can have group communication and SENS® face-to-face communication without needing two-way radio cables or pairing with smartphones.

How It Works

So, how does this SR work exactly? Well, it’s simple: short-range accesses FM radio frequencies that are not being used, allowing workers to communicate at the same frequency without the need for a radio. Each SR channel bank allows for up to 8 groups. These groups could be site tour groups, on-the-job training groups, or workgroups. Whatever the use, SR allows for as many users as you want on a single-channel bank.
