VIGILANCE: A NEW CONCEPT IN EMERGENCY COMMUNICATIONS
Unfortunately every school and business today has deep concerns about their security and have been reviewing their existing systems which are often outdated and a mix-match of different brands and very little integration but Norris, Inc. has the solution with Vigilance Software’s network based emergency call system.
With its extensive experience in security and life safety, Norris Inc. collaborated with several security professionals and developed the most extensive, easy to use and cost effective emergency call system on the market. Features like watch-dog supervision were added to ensure the system would work when needed. In addition to emergency alerts the system has a wide array of signals, including active shooter, emergency weather alerts and medical emergency. The system also allows the end user to create their own buttons - as many or as few as they would like.
Integration into existing systems gives Vigilance the ability to automatically alert police or emergency response, lock down doorways or trigger an alarm. To take it beyond the laptops and workstations of the facility, the system includes, telephone and radio integration with the ability to send e-mail/text messages and/or pre-recorded messages to phones or over huge overhead outdoor speaker arrays.
Norris Inc. and Vigilance Software have worked closely with its early clients, collecting feedback and requests to better serve their needs. This enabled them to add features like enabling or disabling an acknowledgement alert that opens on the sender’s screen and limiting notifications to specific personnel. The recently released hosted solution reduces start-up costs making it affordable to everyone.
So now schools and businesses do not have to wire up expensive panic buttons that employees must reach for, making it obvious they are sending a panic signal. Instead, one or two inconspicuous clicks of a mouse will get the emergency message out to the right people within seconds. It is customizable, fully configurable and scalable to meet the needs of everything from a small office to an entire campus.
Norris Inc. is your local dealer providing Vigilance Systems and can provide the integration to other systems that makes this system so unique. Call, click, or email to setup an evaluation.
