What is a Mass Notification System?

 In Mass Notification System

Some buildings are huge and getting a message from one side to the other is slow and difficult. In order to enhance safety, it is critical to make sure that your automated building system has a mass notification system installed, not only for those occupying the building and property, but also for emergency personnel and others who might need the information.

The Benefits of Mass Notification

Emergency alerts and mass notification are beneficial in situations like fires, dangerous weather, burglary or intrusion and other threatening crime. The buildings that use these systems the most are schools, universities and hospitals, but are not limited to those, every building can be safer.

How the Notification Works

Some of the communication methods that the alerts are transmitted through are:


  • phone calls
  • voicemails
  • text
  • pages
  • tweets
  • Facebook updates
  • sirens
  • radio alerts
  • PA systems


There are certainly many more ways to spread the message and almost any technology can be integrated into the alert system.

One Simple, Central Hub

An emergency alert system runs in real-time. You will be able to relay all information through a central, Internet-based program that allows you to send messages as needed from a stationary control panel, or mobile system.

Emergency alert system software enables towns, communities, campuses and large buildings to be prepared in order to communicate quickly and effectively during an emergency. With an integrated mass notification system, you can be sure that your building will be safe and up-to-date.
