e2Campus Now Broadcasts Messages to Alertus Beacons

Mass notification system maker Omnilert has partnered with Alertus Technologies to let the e2Campus higher education alert system broadcast messages to Alertus Technologies Notification Beacons.

The e2Campus system gives campus administrators a centralized interface for sending urgent messages to campus websites, digital signs, mobile phones, e-mail accounts, and RSS readers used by students, faculty, staff, and visitors.  

Using the enhancement, e2Campus can now reach Alertus Notification Beacons, which are wall- or table-mounted wireless units that notify people of campus emergencies via sirens and flashing lights. The beacons also include LCD panels for text messages describing the emergency and how to respond to it.

The system can be connected to other emergency notification infrastructure, such as public address equipment for voice instructions, plasma screens or additional sirens.

The Alertus enhancement is currently available. Campuses currently using e2Campus can contact Alertus Technologies to learn how to integrate Alertus Notification Beacons into their system. Pricing for e2Campus is approximately $1 per user per year. Alertus systems start at $4,950, and can be leased.
