At one time, emergency communications were very limited: an alarm sounded and people ran to the nearest exit. With digital signage systems, organizations can provide real direction in a crisis, alerting users to the location of the threat, directing them to the best exit or advising them to “shelter in place.” Emergency alert systems can also be used to broadcast non-emergency announcements such as closings, cancellations, schedule changes, weather updates and more. Our system can be integrated with most existing alerting systems.
Messages can be broadcast via a simple text message or a Twitter feed. You can also integrate your systems with sources such as RSS feeds, configuring it to scan for phrases such as “tornado warning” and broadcast alerts in response. Alerts may be sent via mass email and texting programs such as E2Campus. It can even be integrated with building fire alarm systems. Emergency Alerts keep people using your facilities safe, providing real-time information and location-sensitive directions immediately across your entire enterprise.
