enhance audible notifications with text-to-speech
Audible notification is one of the most popular mass notification methods for many organizations. While effective, relying solely on sirens and tones or prerecorded spoken voice messages makes it impossible to share incident details and instructions. Live voice announcements are also a significant challenge, prone to errors and intelligibility issues due to voice inflections, cadence, or enunciation. Alertus can help you solve these challenges and enhance your audible notification effectiveness.
Alertus enables organizations to deliver effective, crystal-clear notification throughout their facilities via sirens, tones, and spoken-voice messages with Alertus’ Text-to-Speech Interface. The Alertus TTS Interface delivers:
Highly intelligible custom alert messages with available factory optimization of unique names and pronunciations to suit your organization
Unified facility activation, yet fully zoneable. Remote activation without physically being at a specific location or on-site
Spoken voice is derived from the original message text, reducing overall response time and streamlining notification process
Ability to convey specific details and instructions for the precise situation
Industry-leading embedded text-to-speech device, in terms of clarity and natural sounding intonation
High Power Speaker Arrays for
outdoor, wide-area notification
When sending emergency communications, outdoor open areas are best served by voice notification. Prerecorded messages can only provide limited information, and unrehearsed live voice can be challenging and stressful in a crisis situation.
Alertus’ breakthrough text-to-speech technology embedded in a high power speaker array (HPSA) helps overcome these challenges. Alertus can override your existing outdoor HPSA or design a new system to cover your campus, base, or facility outdoor areas with siren tones and clear voice messages.
Self-Amplified Text-to-Speech Speaker
Extend Alert Beacon functionality with highly intelligible voice output of custom message text through advanced speakers for indoor notification. In an emergency situation, you need clear, calm, consistent communications. Prerecorded messages can’t provide specific details and instructions, and live voice requires extraordinary poise to speak calmly and clearly into a microphone during an emergency.
Alertus’ text-to-speech technology overcomes these challenges by leveraging the latest in voice synthesis technology.
Voice Public Address System Integration
Alertus Technologies’ emergency mass notification system enables centralized command and control of these individual voice systems; PA systems in all or specific areas or facilities can be immediately activated with ease from anywhere.
The Alertus text-to-speech (TTS) module makes it easy to link these voice systems with Alertus Beacons mounted in buildings without voice infrastructure. The Alertus TTS module enables emergency communications to be connected with multimodal mass notification components such as personal messaging.
Indoor/Outdoor Self-Amplified Horns
The high-efficiency Alertus Indoor/Outdoor Self-Amplified Horn is powerful enough to provide crystal clear audible notification for both indoor and outdoor areas. Coupled with Alertus Text-to-Speech (TTS) technology, these horns can seamlessly delivery spoken messages to inform building occupants of the emergency and how to respond. The built-in amplifier and volume control can be tuned so it is clearly heard throughout your facility to provide reliability and peace of mind.
Activate Notifications On Office Phones And Speakers
Alertus Technologies’ VoIP & IP phone notification solution transforms office phones into a unified emergency communication system. This innovative technology simultaneously activates audible/visual notifications on all or select supported VoIP or SIP phones and speakers.
Alertus can help you determine the correct number and location of outdoor speakers and can perform a preliminary acoustical study to predict the sound coverage of each speaker. We take into account the areas that you would like covered with clear voice, topographical changes, vegetation, building heights, ambient noise, and several other factors to optimally place the speakers. Alertus also integrates and is compatible with a number of outdoor mass notification speaker options, including but not limited to HPSA towers from ATI, Whelen, Federal Signal, American Signal, and Cooper Waves.
