Building on the ISEC7 SPHERE architecture in our mobility management and monitoring solution, our team has extended the capability to include IOT ecosystem. We are proud to announce ISEC7 SPHERE IOT for Smart Buttons, which can be configured to alert a pre-determined recipient list at the press of a button or a change in GPS location. When used in conjunction with BlackBerry® AtHoc® Crisis Communication Platform, our solution can push alerts out to those recipients.



ISEC7 SPHERE is a holistic Digital Workplace & Mobile Service Management and Monitoring solution to cover all aspects of daily operations within your mobile infrastructure. It is constantly evolving around the needs of our customers and, as such, with ISEC7 Sphere IOT it has extended its coverage to support Internet of Things (IOT) devices.


BlackBerry AtHoc

BlackBerry AtHoc is a premier crisis communication solution for emergency mass notifications. For example, emergency managers can alert all/targeted employees to emergency situations such as inclement weather or imminent danger to ensure their safety.


How ISEC7 SPHERE IOT for Smart Buttons with BlackBerry AtHoc Work

ISEC7 Sphere has taken a significant step into the Internet of Things by offering a new ground-breaking feature: sending BlackBerry AtHoc alerts triggered with a press of a Smart Button.


ISEC7 Sphere IOT acts a bridge between the Smart Button ecosystem and BlackBerry AtHoc, allowing triggers from that ecosystem to be actioned by BlackBerry AtHoc.
