Network Alert System
Whether it was responding to a fire-drill or reacting to a bomb scare, many universities, schools, and small offices have been gravely disappointed at the response times and reactions of employees, their staff, and students during an emergency. The good news is that the effective placement of one, time-sensitive notification, can dramatically improve the rapid response by Staff, faculty, and student populations alike – if you can reach them.
With the CovertCall in place your office or school has a unified emergency alert system with a centralized distribution console capable of targeting employees, faculty, alumni, staff, students and visitors simultaneously, informing them of the necessary steps to take in the event of an emergency.
CovertCall does not require a network server to operate. CovertCall is based on a set of network seats. CovertCall can work for two computers or 255 computers and operates over your existing network. Just install the CovertCall software on all the computers on your network and it magically links to all other computers with CovertCall installed.
Any Computer can initiate an alert and all others will receive it!
CovertCall has a built in hot key that only requires three key clicks to send out a "PANIC ALERT". The hot key works regardless of whether or not the CovertCall main screen is open. As CovertCall is always running in the background the hot key is always ready to go. To prevent any accidental activation it requires a three key click activation, "ALT, Shift, P" to send out the Panic Alert.
CovertCall can be setup to interface to other systems via DRY CONTACT OUTPUT RELAYS. Each critical alert has an associated dry contact output. Medical and Panic share a common dry contact output.
EXAMPLE: In a "Lockdown" situation you could use the dry contact output to signal the buildings access control system to lock down all doors.
The Alert window is displayed on all computers that have the CovertCall program installed. CovertCall allows sending the alert warning to all computers at the same time.
The Alert window will be displayed in full screen and will automatically resize to fit the resolution of any monitor.
CovertCall has different notification screen colors coded to distinguish emergency notifications and non critical notifications. All notification windows will be full screen and will also auto adjust to fit the resolution of any monitor.
For non-critical alerts such as ANNOUNCEMENTS or ASSISTANCE requests, the end user can select between full screen banners or smaller less invasive alert tickers.
