Status Solution’s SARA stands for Situational Awareness and Response Assistant. Situational awareness is a risk management strategy that is intended to understand the threat and determine the best way to handle that threat. Today it is used as a framework for life safety, security, environmental monitoring and mass notification situations.
Unlike other systems, Status Solution’s SARA uses a wireless mesh network that does not rely on an expensive 802.1 WiFi based infrastructure. Each SARA Repeater only requires local power and connects to the other repeaters and the main server wirelessly. The local power can be from a back-up source (such as a generator) meaning that the repeaters will continue to work even during a power outage – when you may need them most.
The building or campus is mapped during implementation. The Status Solution’s SARA Positioning System (SPS) uses vector mapping of the three closest mathematical matches to look up its pre-mapped database and can provide specific location information – the lounge, parking lot A, library, etc.
