Target Blu Eye Tetra Radio Detector
DON'T BE SURPRISED
GET A REAL-TIME WARNING FOR APPROACHING EMERGENCY VEHICLES!
Target Blu Eye is a unique and worldwide patented traffic safety system that warns you in advance for approaching emergency service vehicles. Even if such a vehicle is not using its siren and flashing lights. Due to Target Blu Eye you will be warned with an acoustic and visual alert. The signal strength meter on the control display allows you to see at first glance whether an emergency vehicle is approaching you or moving away from you.
Target Blu Eye: an eye for safety
Target Blu Eye is based on TETRA technology, in the UK known as the Airwave Network which is widely used for the communication between different emergency services. Due to this highly advanced technology, Target Blu Eye is able to warn you in advance for approaching emergency services, such as:
- Police cars (marked and unmarked cars)
- Police motorcycles
- Fire trucks
Due to Target Blu Eye you will increase your own safety, the safety of other drivers and the safety of the emergency services.
Target Blu Eye: Based on Tetra Technology
The innovative and new traffic safety system Target Blu Eye consists of a central unit, a control display and an external antenna. The system is based on the Airwave (TETRA) network. If an emergency service, e.g. a police car, is nearby, you will be warned in advance with an acoustic and visual alert. The signal strength meter on the control display allows you to see at first glance whether an emergency vehicle is approaching you or moving away from you.
The communication system used by emergency services in your country generates four types of communication patterns. Target Blu Eye recognizes all four patterns and produces four different acoustic signals. All signals indicate the presence of an emergency service close to you. For more detailed information, go to the user manual.
Besides acoustic warnings Target Blu Eye also generates visual warnings by means of the signal strength meter on the control display. If an emergency vehicle approaches you, regardless from which direction, the signal strength meter gives you an estimated indication about the distance between you and the emergency vehicle. For more detailed information go to the user manual.
Two sensitivity modes can be selected on the Target Blu Eye control display:
- Highway mode: in this mode Target Blu Eye offers the highest sensitivity, which allows the system to recognize emergency services from a large distance.
- City mode: in this mode Target Blu Eye offers a lower sensitivity. This mode is recommended for use in urban areas.
Detection range of Target Blu Eye varies from hundreds of meters up to approximately one kilometre. The range depends on the selected sensitivity mode and the environment.
Question and Answer
What is TETRA?
TETRA stands for Terrestrial Trunked Radio and is a digital standard for radio communication used by almost all emergency services in Europe. In the UK, the TETRA network for emergency services is called Airwave.
Does Target Blu Eye function abroad?
The Tetra network for emergency services is also used in the countries surrounding The Netherlands, such as Belgium, Croatia, Germany (nationwide in 2014), Austria, Great Britain, Scandinavia, Slovenia, Spain, Portugal, Hungary and Italy.
Is Target Blu Eye able to receive signals from a specific emergency service, e.g. only police cars?
No, Target Blu Eye warns you for all approaching emergency vehicles, regardless of the type of emergency vehicles.
Does Target Blu Eye interrupt the communication between emergency services?
No, Target Blu Eye does not interrupt the communication between emergency services or between emergency services and emergency rooms.
Is it legal to use Target Blu Eye in Europe?
Yes, the use of Target Blu Eye is legal since the system is only informing the driver whether an emergency service is nearby. Moreover, Target Blu Eye does not make any difference between police vehicles, ambulances or fire trucks. You will be warned of all types of emergency vehicles. We would like to emphasize that Target Blu Eye is not able to decode the radio messages broadcasted by the Airwave network.
Does Target Blu Eye also respond to the Airwave base stations?
No, Target Blu Eye does not respond to the Airwave base stations.
Does Target Blu Eye respond to police and fire stations?
Target Blu Eye does not respond to police and fire stations. Only if an emergency vehicle with an activated Airwave system is present at that specific location Target Blu Eye will respond.
What is the detection range of Target Blu Eye?
De detection range of Target Blu Eye varies from hundreds of meters to approximately one kilometre. The range depends on the selected sensitivity mode and the environment.
Does Target Blu Eye also respond to the Airwave frequencies used for civil purposes?
No, because, the Airwave frequencies for civil use differ from the frequencies used for emergency services. Therefore Target Blu Eye does not recognize Airwave signals for civil use.
Does Target Blu Eye always warn you for approaching emergency services?
All signals transmitted by emergency services will be detected by the Target Blu Eye. However, emergency services do not always transmit (periodical) signals. The system can be switched off or be in direct mode (DMO). In some European countries the TETRA network coverage is insufficient for permanent periodical transmission.
