Panic Buttons

Alertus Technologies offers an array of signaling appliances to serve a variety of applications. By leveraging existing infrastructure and communication paths, Alertus panic buttons provide immediate, easy, one-step emergency notice activation. Users can quickly launch an alert for a general emergency—such as an accident or medical emergency—by simply pressing the panic button. Pressing the panic button will then activate notification alerts through other, integrated products—including the Alert Beacon®, Alertus Desktop Notification, LED marquee display, text-to-speech interface for public address and giant outdoor speaker systems, fire alarm interface, VoIP phone alerting, and digital signage and cable television override. The panic button can connect to your network via a USB port, and alerts are customizable depending on your needs and can be configured using custom event triggers.

The computer-based, or electronic panic button, offers users another option in which Alertus Desktop Notification provides panic button features on any computer through the use of hotkeys and system tray emergency buttons. This allows your organization to extend the Alertus panic button functionality to any computer or workstation. As with the wall-mounted emergency buttons or physical panic buttons, users can quickly launch a general emergency alert by simply pressing a button on their computer. Finally, the Alertus system can interface with a number of existing signaling devices including sounders and strobes.
