The Alert Beacon
Alert Beacons are designed to serve campuses, military bases, and other large facilities that presently lack an in-building emergency notification system and where retrofitting a conventional voice public address system is impractical and cost prohibitive. Alert Beacons are most effective when wall-mounted in prominent locations throughout the facility. In the event of an emergency, these devices flash and sound to capture the attention of building occupants at a distance and display a custom message about the nature of the emergency and how to respond.
The Alert Beacon is designed to integrate with LED signs, Text-to-Speech, electronic door locks, or other external equipment to extend functionality for any location requirement. This innovative notification device is capable of working with legacy systems to ensure that no matter what systems you have, your organization can get the critical and time-sensitive alerts it needs.
The Alert Beacon has the ability to interface with third-party mass notification solutions with our open Alertus API and Common Alert Protocol (CAP). In the event that you want to continue using your existing system, you can still have that true, single-point of activation from your familiar console while being able to reach more of your population through the Alertus System. This mitigates training time for your organization on certain visual interfaces and the system.

Learn how Alertus became Clark State's "one-stop shop" strategy for controlling and distributing all emergency communications, including their legacy email and text messaging system, across multiple campuses by leveraging their existing network-connected devices and installing Alert Beacons to provide audible and visual alerting.
