ALERT not only supports a broad array of communication media, but also offers a high-performance on-call management system to ensure that your teams are quickly and reliably notified as soon as an alarm is generated. Superior efficiency is the key to delivering a faster response.
However, this may not be enough to guarantee swift and accurate action in some cases. To address the most critical situations, such as alarms where personal safety is at risk, ALERT is capable of supporting the geolocation data contained in the alarms to provide the vital information needed for a fast response.
All the alarms managed by ALERT can be geolocated. Whether static alarms predefined with a specific location or dynamic alarms with variable locations (LWP alarms), ALERT can process and display the alarm on a map or plan in real time.
The intuitive GUI in ALERT makes managing alarm locations child's play. For example, users can quickly and easily define zones, locate alarms and track down devices according to the following principle:
• Define a site: an image representing the site (possibility of positioning the site on an OpenStreetMap map*)
• Create buildings: outline areas on the previously created site for each building. Each building is defined by a name and the total number of floors (including basement levels).
• Create floors: import the layout and map of each floor as an image.
• Position an alarm, Bluetooth beacon or RFID tag, or define an area and its alarms on the floor diagram, site plan or directly on the map.
*If the workstation does not have an Internet connection, a cache can be created on another PC with an Internet connection. The cache can subsequently be used to create an offline map on the workstation.
ALERT can determine the location of all the alarms in your facility.
Alarms can be geolocated individually and collectively according to the principle of zones.
Zones are represented on the map as an outline of a room, building, sector, and so on, and several alarms may be associated with the zone. When an alarm is triggered, the associated zone is displayed on the map in red.
Sometimes, it takes more than a notification of the alarm to deliver fast assistance when roaming workers are in trouble. Operators need to quickly see the worker's location. With this aim in mind, LWP devices and applications offer various technological solutions for homing in on alarms:
|LWP devices||Geolocation interface|
|Radio||GPS/Bluetooth beacons/RFID tags|
|DECT||DECT access points|
|GSM/Dedicated devices||GPS/Bluetooth beacons|
|ALERTMobile||GPS/Wi-Fi access points/Bluetooth beacons|
Offering superior compatibility and a flexible design, ALERT has the power to centralize all LWP alarms from most of the devices on the market. This means that all alarms are managed in a one-stop solution with the ability to disseminate and view their locations to guarantee a very fast response.
Most of the LWP devices on the market can capture the relevant geolocation information when generating an alarm. When the device raises the alarm, ALERT receives and processes the geolocation data to display the location of the worker in need of assistance on a plan (indoor location using Bluetooth beacons, Wi-Fi access points, RFID tags, DECT access points, etc.) or on a map (outdoor location using GPS coordinates).
