The Alertus Mass Notification System (Alertus System) is built on the power of the Alertus Server, and is managed through our intuitive user interface. The Alertus System is designed from the ground up to be fully flexible in its configuration of recipient groups, preset messages, user controls, restrictions, and many other points of customization.

No matter the number of devices or systems in your notification portfolio, being able to instantly notify all, or select individuals is crucial to effective emergency notification.

Safe, secure, Supervised
The Alertus Server is offered as an on-site solution (cloud hosting available) which offers increased reliability and security since it is dedicated exclusively to your organization and does not depend on external Internet connectivity. Additionally, data is retained on site, and leveraging existing infrastructure can often reduce costs. Notification points check in with the server periodically to determine whether an alert has been initiated and devices are active or disabled.
