Has anyone heard of this product, seen it in use?

Look neat but I'd be a little concerned since it uses the same frequency as every other wireless device on 900Mhz.Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

Neat idea and certainly overdue.
There was another product like it (think it was a scott product) that allowed for crew comms also (like an intercom) between all mask wearers. In addition, you could push a button and then speak over your regular fireground channel.
I imagine at some point, this stuff will be built into the scba's.
Gosh, what will they think of next.I am now a past chief and the views, opinions, and comments are mine and mine alone. I do not speak for any department or in any official capacity. Although, they would be smart to listen to me.

After digging around on their website, it appears that they Scott exclusive use of their products. But cant find anything recent.

It only makes sense in this day and age to have comms INSIDE the mask. How big is your average bluetooth headset? I'd bet they could integrate a very good mic into a facepiece without too much effort.
Imagine being able to actually hear what your crew is saying without losing every other word to the mask and other assorted noise confusion.
I think a solid implementation is long overdue. "We have the technology"
