The Hugs System Advantage

  • Easy-attach tag with automatic enrollment
    The Hugs tag attaches in seconds and is automatically enrolled in the software. Protection can start right in the delivery room.
  • No manual tests
    The Hugs system requires no manual checks of infant tags or other devices to make sure they’re working. The Hugs system software ­continually monitors the status of all devices, and will generate an alarm if something goes wrong.
  • Automatic mother/infant matching
    With the Kisses® option, the Hugs system automatically confirms that the right baby is with the right mother. There are no buttons to push, no numbers to match and no wall-mounted lamps to check.
  • Support now, and in the future
    The By Your Side™ program for the Hugs system ensures that every customer will be successful with infant protection. Xmark is with you every step of the way as you implement and use your system, wtih a wide range of materials and services.

  • User friendly
    The Hugs system offers a wide range of viewing options. Users only see the menus and commands they need, all in a standard Windows-based PC environment. The integrated CCTV option enables you to see what is happening at an exit during a door alarm, right from within the Hugs user interface—you have the essential information you need to respond appropriately.
  • Full supervision
    The Hugs system ensures full supervision of all components, including the tag, with each tag sending a Heartbeat® status message every 10 seconds. If the system doesn’t receive these messages for a specified time period, an alarm is automatically generated.
