The only way to ensure that your organization can meet any life safety, security or environmental monitoring plan is to automate the task. Always on monitoring, targeted alerting with built-in escalation, the ability to integrate into existing fire safety systems are all part of what Status Solutions calls Situational Awareness.
Situational awareness means having real-time information about potential threats to people, property, business and convenience. It ensures that the right information goes to the right people on the right devices automatically for faster, more efficient communication, especially in the event of an emergency. In addition to emergency preparedness and response, it also improves business operations.
Situational awareness provides a wide view of what’s happening in and around an organization to prevent ignorance-based loss. With centralized monitoring, alerting and reporting, you can deliver emergency notifications or other announcements to virtually any screen – workstations, smartphones, tablets and digital signage including TVs. The most common applications for situational awareness include life safety, security, environmental monitoring and mass notification.
