THE K-IP SOLUTION TAGS ALONG, SIMPLY
The KIP beacon and its app: a winning duo
“In France, any person equipped with a KIP beacon can now be found by the PGHM following a call from a relative at 112.”
French rescue teams specialized
in the mountains and high mountains
HOW DOES THE KIP WORK?
To be used everywhere in Europe, the beacon sends your information on the KIP radio network, and as a bonus, on your phone’s GSM network. In France, if there is no network, the information of your KIP can be intercepted by the rescue services, even when the network of your phone and the KIP network are not present. You will always be findable.
No coverage? No problem!
Thanks to your KIP, you are findable, everywhere, even without any network.
In addition to deploying and operating the KIP network, we have equipped mountain rescue services with the FINDR.
This device communicates directly with the KIP and does not require a network to locate people in distress.
Thanks to the FINDR, a unique technology developed by APIK to overcome network dead zones, mountain rescue teams can find a KIP beacon located up to 12km away with a 30cm precision. A performance that allows it to scan, in just a few minutes, large areas during helicopter rescue.
Your KIP beacon precisely guides the rescue team to you within minutes.
AND COMPARED TO OTHERS?
FREEDOM IN YOUR OWN IMAGE
With or without a phone ?
Go out with only your KIP for a maximum amount of freedom: your KIP can be used on its own and on any terrain.
Combine it with your phone for more features! Your phone will allow you to access other functions such as using its GSM network.
You will need the KIP app at a minimum to activate your new KIP and start the included 1 year subscription.
