    CRISIS RESPONSE TECHNOLOGY AND EMERGENCY COMMUNICATION 

Integrating With an Increasingly Connected World
to Improve Crisis Response

The best crisis response is the one that relies more on automation than on the human touch. People are especially fallible during high-stress events like crises, and so it’s imperative to pursue the most ideal form of response: the automated response. The most significant innovation in crisis response technology is the ability to integrate with other independently monitored systems that can provide emergency notifications, creating an ever-more automated response.


In addition to incorporating Omnimodal Notification and Scenarios®, the Omnilert mass notification system is designed to continuously improve the scope and effectiveness of automated crisis response. It accommodates and integrates with a broad range of constantly evolving technologies and processes that give emergency managers the power to react with greater speed—even under the most extreme duress.

Leveraging Critical
Information Systems

Through Triggers™, you can automatically initiate specific responses based on alerts and data from a variety of sources, including:

  • Weather service alerts

  • Police alerts

  • Intrusion alert systems

  • Fire and smoke alarms

  • Gunshot sensors

For extreme situations, such as tornado warnings or an active shooter emergency, speed is critical. Removing the need for a human to initiate action can dramatically accelerate crisis response and ultimately save more lives.

Tapping into the Growing
Internet of Things (IoT)

Machines and appliances of all types—from railroad cars to HVAC systems—are getting smarter, thanks to embedded computer processing power and Internet connectivity. The Internet of Things is expected to grow to an estimated 20.8 billion devices in the coming years. Because many of these devices can detect surrounding conditions, they are becoming increasingly valuable as an extension of Omnilert. Devices can include:

  • Chemical and hazardous materials detection systems

  • Environmental control systems

  • Structural stress detection systems

  • Manufacturing and process control systems

Automatically Triggering a Predefined Series of Actions
  • 1

    A crisis occurs in your
    building or facility

  • 2

    Your automated system
    detects a crisis

  • 3

    Your system sends a
    notification to Omnilert

  • 4

    Your predefined Scenarios
    are launched automatically

Every day, new systems are coming to market that autonomously monitor various environmental factors ranging from network threats, severe weather, air quality, and other safety-related conditions. If a threat or system health issue is detected, that system can automatically launch Omnimodal notifications and trigger a predefined series of actions embodied in Scenarios®
