ALERiTY: One button means never thinking twice in a crisis

In a crisis, it’s hard to think clearly and miscommunication can exacerbate an already dangerous situation. Sometimes you need to tell people to take cover. Other times, run. In an emergency situation, responders can’t waste valuable time trying to navigate three, five or even 12 different systems. And yet, in a world where advanced (yet very disparate) alert systems proliferate, system complexity is all too common.

At Eaton, safety is always top of mind. So our engineers began asking some fundamentally simple but technologically complex questions about mass notification: How can we help people know what’s really going on in a threat situation? How can we let them know exactly what they should do and when? And most importantly, how can we make it simple to activate?

Giving responders just one button to push

Eaton has a unique perspective on mass notification because it’s the only company that offers in-building, wide-area and distributed-recipient capabilities, all under one roof. We realized that what campuses and communities needed was a system of systems for mass notification that offered interoperability, scalability and ease of use at its core. We call it ALERiTY .

In-building Mass Notification System:

ALERiTY links Autonomous Control Units for supervised emergency voice communications. Seamlessly integrates for multi-use capabilities.

Wide-area Mass Notification System:

ALERiTY links High Power Speaker Arrays to broadcast intelligible voice messages, tones and sirens, covering large geographic areas.

Distributed-recipient Mass Notification System:

ALERiTY links web-based communications to send messages via unlimited channels, SMS text, voice calls, pagers and email.

ALERiTY provides a web-based command console that gives users easy-to-understand, one button functionality. It allows responders to access, monitor and activate a mass notification system anywhere, anytime. And it’s built from the ground up to integrate with existing solutions, making your system holistic and effective. Because ALERiTY works across wired and wireless networks, it’s able to pull together indoor, outdoor and personal alerts into one seamless interface, offering virtually limitless ways to distribute an emergency notification.

Safety gets highly targeted and widely distributed

From indoor speakers and outdoor giant voice warnings, to pop-up interruptions on desktop computers, voice calls and instant text messages to mobile phones, ALERiTY makes it possible to get people’s attention no matter where they are. It also provides secure, real-time information sharing across an organization’s facilities, and with security, fire, police and health departments. Plus, it integrates with data sources like the National Weather Service and Centers for Disease Control (CDC). This allows people to receive concise, timely and event-specific notices, exactly when they need it most.
