Irving, TX (PRWEB) November 10, 2014
The WAVE Plus incident notification system from SecureTech Systems, Inc. -- already the most feature-rich system of its kind on the market -- is now even more robust with the addition of multiple virtual buttons and a new multi-function web interface, the company announced.
The virtual buttons are digital icons located on each computer screen connected to the Local Area Network (LAN). The WAVE (Wireless Amplified Voice Equipment) Plus system has included a single virtual Panic button -- in addition to physical panic buttons -- for several years. Now, as many as four different virtual buttons can appear on the computer screen, according to Steve Kirby, founder of the 20-year-old company.
An alarm icon can be placed on the desktop or anchored to the menu bar. Alternatively, a hot key, such as F9 on a PC, can be assigned to each of the buttons. A user triggers an alarm by either double clicking the icon or pressing the assigned hot key.
For example, there could be specific buttons to call directly to law enforcement (Security), or for emergency medical assistance (Medical). Other buttons could be configured for an internal e-mail list. Examples might be: a weather emergency (Weather), and one for the end of an emergency (All Clear).
"Virtual buttons enable a company or organization to add users to a notification system at much less cost than by placing physical buttons at each location," Kirby explained. "The virtual buttons complement the manual panic buttons. They don't replace them."
With the new web interface, the WAVE Plus can now be viewed remotely using a web browser on any device with Internet access. Reports can be viewed or downloaded. Real time alarms can be seen on any computer within the LAN. The WAVE Plus can also be configured remotely using a web browser.
"This makes it easier to manage the WAVE Plus (make changes to the outgoing message or add buttons)," Kirby said, "and gives a wider group of personnel access to view the alarms."
Supervisory alarm reports such as low batteries can be viewed in this way too making it easier to maintain the system, he said.
