Washington, DC (PRWEB) July 18, 2010
Desktop Alert Inc., provider of U.S. Military Command and Control Mass Notification Systems, today announced Desktop Alert's release of the Desktop Alert EDU™ (Emergency Display Unit). Desktop Alert EDU™ sets a new bar for in-building emergency notification. Wall-mounted alerting devices utilize two-way voice and video communication, strobe lights and sounds to engage the attention of building occupants located in common areas, and publish alerts for personnel safety and security with details of the emergency. Desktop Alert EDU™ provides notice for immediate attention and the Desktop Alert EDU™ devices are mounted in crucial locations throughout building facilities. Ethernet and numerous reliable wireless communication connections insure that the message is delivered.
"Desktop Alert EDU™ is a byproduct of our customers' requests. Alert delivery is all about reliability. Personnel located in common areas need to know how to respond to an emergency. Desktop Alert has Desktop Alert EDU™ installations slated for delivery to DoD locations in both Europe and North America. Additionally, the Health Care sector has responded very favorably to the Desktop Alert EDU™. All EDU's are listed and available from the standard Active Directory and regarded as an end-user or end-point and as such, the activation is instant. Desktop Alert is now introducing the EDU to 146 U.S. National Guard locations as a common area alerting end-point." said Howard Ryan, Desktop Alert's CEO.
