PSA Security Network recently announced a new vendor partnership with Alertus Technologies. Alertus leads the industry in unified facility notification and has been engineering netcentric emergency alert systems for universities and colleges, K–12 schools, corporations, industrial sites, medical centers, the Department of Defense, and other government organizations for more than a decade.
The Alertus Notification System provides “one-touch” instant command and control of all enterprise alerting modalities throughout large area, high-occupancy facilities. The Alertus system consists of a customisable array of emergency notification products and cutting-edge technology, including wall-mounted Alert Beacons, computer desktop alerting, USB panic button, LED marquee display, text-to-speech interface for public address and giant outdoor speaker systems, fire alarm interface, VoIP phone alerting, digital signage and cable television override, and cell phone apps that allow for the distribution and receipt of emergency alerts. The outcome is a seamless integration of all netcentric IT assets, new and legacy facility infrastructure, and innovative audible visual notification appliances to serve gaps in coverage.
“We are pleased to team with PSA and its members to serve the tens of thousands of corporate and institutional facilities where retrofitting their expansive facilities with conventional public address speakers is typically cost prohibitive and impractical,” says Jason Volk, CEO at Alertus. “The combination of Alertus’ innovations in mass notification with PSA members’ expertise and professional implementation services will protect lives and ensure business continuity when an emergency or crisis strikes.”
“Our partnership with Alertus will offer PSA members a leading edge technology for mass notification,” says Craig Patterson, PSA’s director of vendor management. “Alertus’ unique capabilities will open new opportunities to serve unfulfilled customer needs and tap into the immense growth potential of mass notification solutions and services.”
