The Advanosys Security and Automation Technology (ASAT) team, along with our partners, have assembled a vast list of major manufacturers to provide virtually every type of emergency communications systems platforms to meet our clients requirements. These systems include the traditional type of well marked, fixed communication stations frequently built into standalone towers or wall mounted units with defined emergency station markings such as the “blue light” phone scenario. Emergency communication stations should be placed at regular intervals to allow general population and/or specific staff the ability to gain access with great ease. These and other types of emergency communication stations can be hardwired and/or standalone utilizing wireless and alternate power to maintain constant operation, along with supervised signaling to assure all online and operable at all times. These types of stations may be used interactively to both receive initiation of an emergency or duress call where specific geographic location is immediately noted at the designated security center and with recommended video coverage for every location, the security personnel have the ability to immediately have live monitoring of the specific communication station and surrounding areas.
The reverse communication may also be utilized for emergency evacuation notification in cases of fire, active shooter or other natural disaster/heightened security activity, a prerecorded communication can be broadcast from the emergency communication station as well as very specific manual messaging delivery. These stations can also serve as a mustering location where personnel can manually check in and/or have a reader device that denotes their arriving at designated location to be counted.
With our manufacturing partner Totus, we have the ability to initiate extremely high quality and low power draw LED lighting to flash or pulse upon emergency notification situations. With the Totus managed LED lighting solution, we build or replace existing street light poles with the high efficient LED lighting units that incorporate a wireless network platform, along with video monitoring, all on existing light poles. With the built-in wireless network, we are able to install voice over IP emergency communication stations on any light pole, making what at one time was extremely difficult to have a remote emergency communication station or video camera configuration now possible while saving up to 60% on electric draw with a return on investment within a short period of time. These technologies also allow for one’s smart phone to have a built-in application as a designated duress initiation that immediately denotes their geographic location on campus and initiates activation of pulse lighting and video capture instantly for the best possible notification and response process by the designated security personnel.
