Preparing for and responding to emergency situations isn’t always something people like to think about, but it’s a reality that must be addressed. In any natural or manmade disaster, a quick and controlled response is essential to minimize collateral damage and preserve safety for those affected by the situation.
With the proliferation of digital signage in public spaces comes an opportunity to harness the power of this medium to quickly disseminate critical information in the event of an emergency. Enplug is leading the charge, thanks to its recent integration with Alertus – one of the leading emergency mass notification systems for large-area, high-occupancy facilities. This collaboration brings one of the most trusted solutions for critical infrastructure to the Enplug platform, making it possible for users to leverage their existing digital signage networks to quickly broadcast critical safety information in times of need.
Enplug is a leading cloud-based digital signage software provider. The company’s digital signage platform makes it easy for virtually anyone to design and deploy engaging signage content. Consequently, Enplug is quickly becoming a favored platform in corporate and retail settings, as well as public and even private spaces. The growing number of Alertus customers who manage their digital signage with the Enplug platform represents a massive network of endpoints that can be used to broadcast information to keep people safe in emergency situations.
For more than 15 years, Alertus has been a leader in emergency mass notification technologies. The Alertus Mass Notification System delivers instant alert capabilities to customers in the higher education, K-12, industrial, corporate, healthcare, government and military sectors. Alertus customers using Enplug to drive their digital signage networks now have the ability to automatically deliver emergency notifications to their entire digital signage networks.
To take advantage of this integration, existing Alertus users simply activate the Emergency Alert App in the Enplug dashboard and copy the URL displayed. The user would then log into their Alertus account and use the provided URL to configure a new Alert Profile. In the event of manmade and/or natural disaster, Alertus notifications are pushed into Enplug’s Emergency Alert App. The alert messages, which include text and images, override default content in the Enplug playlist and instantly appear across a signage network.
