Connecting your AINA PTT Accessory to GroupTalk

Posted on 2018-05-31 by AINA Marketing

One push-to-talk application that has mastered combining PTT app features and advanced functions offered by the AINA Wireless PTT accessories is GroupTalk. Both the Bluetooth Remote Speaker Microphone (Voice Responder) and the PTT button (SmartButton) are fully integrated and compatible with GroupTalk. The configuration allows the user to fully customize the buttons to different functions.

Having launched their first commercial PTT application in 2006, the GroupTalk app has gained a lot of trust of customers especially in the security industry and the company is a member of SäkerhetsBranschen, an association that brings together actors in the security industry to initiate, visualise, create opinion and drive value-creating security issues in a forum for a safer and more secure Sweden. Other big customers are in the Airline industry (Scandinavian Airlines) and Construction.
