Hands-Free Hangup

Users are requesting the ability to hang up a call without having to touch the device. Especially now that they are able to place calls hands-free. Before the "OK Vocera/Hey Vocera" hotword users were taught that whoever placed the call should end the call; the thought being that if the caller had a free hand to place the call they likely had a free hand to end the call. Now that users are placing calls hands-free that isn't always the case. I witnessed several users trying to say, "OK Vocera" hang up. Perhaps the hotword "OK Vocera/Hey Vocera" could be used to wake up the Genie during the call and then say "Hang up" or "End Call".

    Albany Medical Center would like to see this feature implemented to make the V5000 and C1000 devices truly handsfree.

    Our staff is also requesting an option for hands free hang up. It isn't always the best option to be with a patient doing something and have to stop to end the call.
