Together with Step-Hear, we are working on a more accessible society for visually impaired people. Below you can see the products we use in order to do so. By making a strategic choice from these, a “chain of beacons” can be created to provide the target group with support at the right times. In this way, a complete route can be opened up from A to Z.
Of course we are happy to assist you with tailor-made advice without obligation!
The (free) app provides access to the Step-Hear platform, in order to be able to communicate (via Bluetooth) with the beacons in the area. As soon as the user approaches a beacon, he/she receives an audio and/or vibration signal. Via the buttons, for example, location or navigation information can be obtained, a door can be opened or a request for assistance can be submitted.
Download the app with the buttons below. Click here for the extensive Step-Hear maual.
Gives a spoken instruction as soon as the user comes close. This instruction can be recorded or pre-programmed, and can be adjusted in volume as desired.
The Step-Hear Audiosign is often used in public buildings, especially to indicate entrances and to tell something about the location.
Step-Hear Audiosign Solar
A Step-Hear Audiosign (see above) with an autonomous power source in the form of a solar panel roof.
The Step-Hear Audiosign Solar is often used in public areas where there is no voltage source. Think of bus stops, parking lots, shopping streets, amusement parks, educational areas, etc.
Step-Hear Beacon Indoor
The Step-Hear indoor beacon can be placed indoors, for example, at shopping malls, museums, hotels, restaurants, etc. When the app user is in the vicinity of the beacon, a spoken instruction follows via the app.
Step-Hear Beacon Outdoor
The Step-Hear Outdoor Beacon can be placed outside for numerous applications. When the app user is near the beacon, a spoken instruction follows via the app.
Step-Hear Personal Wrist Activator
With this “watch” users of Step-Hear, who do not (want to) use the app, can still use the system. They can receive audio instructions via the watch (using the Step-Hear Audiosign).
This bell has been specially developed for people with a functional disability. They often have difficulty opening doors, or cannot use regular doorbells (because they are too high or inaccessible to them). The Step-Hear Doorbell can be placed strategically anywhere, so that it can be easily operated from a wheelchair, for example. The Doorbell then activates the Step-Hear Chime (see below).
This bell gives an audio and visual signal when activated. It can be activated via the app, via the Step-Hear Doorbell or via Step-Hear Alert.
The Step-Hear Chime is often placed at receptions or counters in many applications, for example as a doorbell, as a request for assistance or as an alarm (eg at toilets).
This alarm can be used in (public) toilets, care institutions and other places where attention must be drawn quickly in case of an emergency. It connects to the Step-Hear Chime to provide an audible and visual alarm when activated.
This “control box” is used, for example, to open doors.
Step-Hear Traffic Light Activator
With this application, Step-Hear users are alerted when they are approaching a traffic light, after which they can activate this traffic light via the app. In this way it prevents people with a visual impairment from being unable to find the control button, or people with another (functional) disability from being unable to reach this button. It therefore increases road safety for them enormously!
