Alert Beacon

1.00

Alert Beacons® are designed to serve campuses, military bases, and other large facilities that presently lack an in-building emergency notification system and where retrofitting a conventional voice public address system is impractical and cost prohibitive. Alert Beacons are most effective when wall-mounted in prominent locations throughout the facility. In the event of an emergency, these devices flash and sound to capture the attention of building occupants at a distance and display a custom message about the nature of the emergency and how to respond.

Key Features

  • Integrated: Designed to integrate with LED signs, Text-to Speech, electronic door locks, or other external equipment to extend functionality for any location requirement

  • Interoperable: Unified activation with most other mass notification solutions via Common Alert Protocol (CAP) and open Alertus API

  • Reliable: Immediate response that is not dependent on congested cell phone towers or the Internet. Can be connected to the Alertus server via ethernet, WiFi, FM Radio, or pager

  • Affordable: A fraction of the cost of a conventional voice PA system with no recurring fees

  • ADA Compliant: Notifies everyone using both visible and audible alerts to accommodate the deaf and hard-of-hearing

  • Zoneable: Notifications can be sent to all or select Alert Beacons across facilities depending on whether the emergency event is isolated

  • Green: Consumes <5 watts (1/6 of a fluorescent light)

  • Redundant Communication Capable: Receives notifications from the on-premise server through one or multiple pathways: Ethernet (standard), WiFi, FM Radio Subcarrier, or RF Paging

The Alert Beacons sound, flash, and display a message when an emergency notification is dispatched, which has established better communication and coordination between the Boston University and Boston Medical Center.
