Back in 1996 before Wi-Fi and the global internet, it all started with the waiter call system Myriad.
This networked proprietary radio communication system enabled guests and staff to page waiters and porters across multiple buildings through their own private paging network.
Built around a DOS based single board computer and using the 8 bit microchip, the DOS application was wrote in “C” and the microchip in assembler language.
Supplied to many hotels including Celtic Manor, Radisson Edwardian Group, Sheraton, and Holiday Inns.
Over the following years the system grew to encompass equipment monitoring, fire alarms, nurse call and eventually disability aids.
The disability aids prooved to be a product in its own and thus was developed the product range “LifeLine“

The Myriad 600 was first installed in to the Celtic Manor in 1998 and provided a networked paging ability across all of the golf courses and hotel.
At the time it was the first and only networked paging system. Long before WiFi and the internet connections we have today.
Back then we were still on ISDN connections and dial up Modems.
Call Buttons were designed around our own propriety 127Mhz radio link and had a range of over a 1km in free space.
These were placed around the hotel and service areas to enable users and customers to directly page for service or assistance by simply pressing a button.

These pagers received messages from the base system and displayed on the screen.
The range was massive, for the Celtic Manor it covered all two golf courses, the golf club and academy plus all the floors of the hotel and conferencing centre.
