The Pieps Backup is a mini-transmitter which is an addition to the transceiver worn on your body and active only in emergency broadcasts. Pieps provides the solution for locating a rescuer in the event of a secondary avalanche. The device detects an emergency (no movement and no beacon transmitters active at close range), only then does it send.
