Features to Look for In Push-to-Talk Two-Way Radios

There are many exciting features available on today’s push-to-talk two-way radios. It can be difficult to choose one product over another because they offer so many bells and whistles. Before you decide to buy, though, there are some features you want to make sure the push-to-talk two-way radios you buy for your business, group, family, or even personal use have.

Appropriate IP Rating

IP ratings determine how much wind-driven debris (like dust) and water a radio can handle. Depending on locations and jobs, some professions and positions will require higher IP ratings than others. For instance, an IP67 rating is sufficient for most jobs, even those out in the elements. The first digit represents solid object resistance and the second represents protection against water. IP67 means the radio is considered “dust tight” and fit for immersion in water.

High Capacity Battery

You need batteries that can stand up to the long hours your employees are called upon to work. Long battery life means the radios can last the entire day without needing to replace or recharge in many instance. It greatly increases the amount of usefulness for batteries on a full charge.

SOS / Panic Button

The ability to quickly call out for help in an emergency is critical for every member of your team, family, or group. The panic button or SOS feature allows them to do that with the push of a single button. This call provides instant emergency notification.

GPS Enabled

GPS enabled communication means that you know where your people are at all times. This helps you keep them on task and allows you to send aid to them quickly when emergencies arise. It also lets you know when your people are going in the wrong direction so you can turn them around to where they need to be right away, greatly reducing route confusion and directional miscommunications.
