Alertus Technologies is the pioneer and leader in enterprise facility alerting systems for campuses, military bases, government facilities, and other large facilities. Alertus’ chief product is the Alert Beacon, a wall-mounted device with sounder and strobes to capture the attention of building occupants from a distance, coupled with an integrated LCD displaying the nature of the emergency and appropriate response. Other products include voice PA and fire alarm interfaces, digital signage override, and desktop notification. Alertus products are interoperable with most major personal messaging and wide area alert systems.
Alertus was founded out of the University of Maryland after a tornado ripped through the campus in 2001 killing two students without warning. Since then, many thousands of Alert Beacons have been deployed. The Alertus system has been field-proven at numerous campuses for true emergencies ranging from threats of violence to hazardous materials incidents.
