Latest Liberator Headset Is the Equivalent of a Command Center on Your Head.

Setcom Corporation, a leading manufacturer of intercom systems and headsets for fire apparatus, has released the latest innovation in public safety vehicle and fire ground communications. This advance allows the Liberator wireless headset to directly connect to most Bluetooth-enabled mobile phones.

With the simple touch of a button, the Liberator headset connects to a Bluetooth-enabled cell phone. It is easy to use and allows numerous ways for public safety personnel to communicate. The Liberator headset now becomes a command center on your head. Users can connect to:

  • Up to 3 mobile radios
  • A portable radio
  • A cell phone
  • Apparatus intercom system
  • Other audio source plugged into System 900 intercom or System 1300 intercom

The applications of this newest technology are vast and include:

  • Interfacing a cell phone into a Battalion Chief’s vehicle command post communication system
  • Allowing paramedics to easily speak over the phone with doctors while en route to the hospital
  • Adding cell phone capabilities to a mobile command center intercom system
  • Communicating with non-traditional information sources while on the fire ground

In addition to directly connecting the Liberator headset to a Bluetooth-enabled mobile phone, Setcom offers two other ways to connect to these types of devices:

  • Full Intercom Connection: The RSM-900CPI allows all intercom users to hear the audio from a cell phone and radio-transmit positions to speak to the phone. Easily switch between radios and the phone or monitor them all simultaneously.
  • Single Intercom Position Connection: The CPI-900SYS2 allows a user of any Setcom wired or wireless headset to hear and transmit to a Bluetooth device.

Because Setcom uses Bluetooth technology, it was the first and only company to pioneer this direct connection innovation for the fire service. No other current wireless vendor of fire apparatus communications systems will be able to replicate this feature because they do not use the Bluetooth standard in their headsets.

“The important applications that our customers have identified with this advancement have us very excited. Our engineering team listened to customer requirements and delivered a fantastic addition to our already cutting edge headset,” said James Roberts, Setcom President.

Why the Liberator Is the Superior Fire Wireless System

  • Only wireless headset to have direct to cell phone integration.
  • Up to 30 hours of battery life. For extra safety, 25% longer life than competitive systems.
  • Only wireless headset to have "Instant On" technology which saves time on the way to the scene.
  • Only wireless headset to integrate a portable radio allowing for multiple channel monitoring.
  • Only wireless system with the flexibility of the Aerial Advantage Antenna.
  • Only Setcom uses Bluetooth technology, as opposed to DECT6, for voice transmission.
