Blackline Live Overview
The Blackline Live portal is at the core of all G7 solutions, equipping businesses with leading safety monitoring tools, dashboard and comprehensive configuration management of fielded devices. Monitoring portal user accounts deliver everything needed to manage an emergency situation effectively — the safety status of every team member is visible, complete with custom emergency response protocols. Employee worn devices are easily configured for specific working environments, with G7 features such as gas detection limits and lone worker check-in intervals easily customized with a few clicks.

G7 is entirely configurable. The Device settings determine how your device will function — features can be enabled or disabled to customise device functionality to meet your needs.
Alert profiles determine how and when a Blackline Device will alert monitoring personnel of an incident. Blackline Live delivers safety monitoring tools and access to gas detection alerts in real-time. Monitor and manage alerts from receipt through to resolution using your tailored and documented emergency response protocol.
Quickly and simply assess the safety status of every team member via their G7 device. Alerts are received and indicated on the Live map View, specifying your employees’ exact location and type of alert. In History View, access past locations of a specific device or of an entire fleet.

Indoor location technology
Custom floor and site plans work together with Blackline Location Beacons, to deliver a more comprehensive situational awareness of facilities. Location Beacons augment location transmission where GPS alone may not be sufficient. Beacon position is recorded in context of custom floor or site plans uploaded into Blackline Live. The location of Beacons, and those of nearby devices are displayed on top of the correct floor or site plan on the map in Blackline Live.
Blackline G7 devices support gas detection programs and are equipped with gas sensors that wirelessly communicate compliance and usage data to Blackline Live. This information is then used for usage reporting, alleviating the need for manual data collection. From incident through to resolution, all activities are time-stamped for future reporting and include notes used to document the response.
