Live Voice: The Link That Closes the Communications Loop
That’s good news. There’s more good news, too: When comparing buying interest in various emergency mass notification products, every product category showed an increase over the past four years. Along that line, our SoundCommander® fixed, deployable and tactical systems can play a pivotal role in providing complete coverage. Live voice closes the communications loop in emergency mass notification systems.
We’ve discussed this before, and as always, it bears repeating. SMS texting, calls to cell phones and land lines and email notifications are great ways to notify people of an emergency. But they only reach people who are in a network and have their service turned on and accessible when the announcement goes out. Signs are good, too, as long as people can see them. Sirens get attention, but they don’t give specific instructions.
Loudspeaker systems designed for high-quality voice clarity can give instructions to anyone in within earshot – and that should include people in the vicinity of the emergency. Nobody has to subscribe to a network and be connected to it. They just need to be able to hear. Clear voice instructions can be better understood when the speaker system can deliver them above the din.
To do that, you should have a loudspeaker system that meets or exceeds the 0.70 STI standard for speech intelligibility as specified in the NFPA 72 fire code. Our SC1100 and SC5600 systems both averaged 0.83 with a top reading of 0.87 STI (Speech Transmission Index) during recently conducted speech intelligibility tests.
In addition, our fixed SC360 can easily be integrated with signage, alarm, cell phone, SMS and email systems so that everyone can be reached with the same warnings and instructions simultaneously. We have partners, such as Metis Secure Systems and Evax Systems, who can help you design and install an integrated system that greatly increases your chances to reach more people.
