is WSI your best choice for Emergency Notification Systems? Because
we offer a broad range of state-of-the-art activation and receiving
systems, with an adaptable and reliable set of accessories for
virtually any special needs situation.|
Interoperability and the Common Alerting Protocol (CAP)
Utilizing the technology of XML, WSI provides the Common Alerting
Protocol (CAP) message format to the activation of all types of
dissemination systems. These include not just our basic Tone Alert
Radios (TARs), which are already geographically aware warning devices,
but most all tone encoded RF devices as well. This means that virtually
all DTMF, 2-tone or single-tone systems can be activated with a
CAP message using the state-of-the-art WSI activation systems.
In many cases, this system will provide current technology to activate
Software Tunable Tone Alert Radios
All WSI radios have a software tunable front-end. This allows
the operating frequency to be changed within its range without
Secure Web-based Activation System
WSI activation systems are web-based with 128 bit encryption
and username/password authentication. This allows any networked
to be utilized securely for activations as well as remote access.
If network capabilities are not available, the systems can
be accessed directly.
Send alerts to Tone Alert Radios in as little as 15 seconds
by simply using scripted and prerecorded messages.
Each OnAlert radio has its own unique electronic identification
and is individually addressable. You can selectively pinpoint
an alert or other message to one or more individual locations
This lets the operator target only the affected parties,
avoiding the unnecessary alarming of the broader population.
can be grouped by geographic zone or common interest, e.g.
or all hospitals.
WSI offers the ability to trigger Tone Alert Radios, as
well as DTMF radios and/or sirens, 2-Tone paging systems
activations can be done from a client computer, directly
or over a LAN to the OnAlert server that communicates
directly to the
transmission system or encoder. This allows multiple
permitted PC users on a
LAN to access the server for activation of any of these
alert and notification systems. With this capability,
does not have to go from one device to another to activate
different systems as activation is centralized in a convenient
from a computer on the LAN.
Live and Pre-Recorded Messages for TARs
In addition to pre-recorded messages and synthesized audio, a microphone
lets the operations center broadcast a live message to the targeted
individuals or groups.
VHF and UHF Operating Frequencies
OnAlert TARs operate on channels in the VHF frequency band from
150 - 170 Mhz and in the UHF band from 850 - 870 Mhz. AdaptAlert
TARs operate in the 150-170 Mhz range.
A warning device is of limited use if the receiver depends on uninterrupted
power service for its operation. ONALERT warning receivers use
high energy, lead acid batteries which can power the units for
more than six hours in standby mode and operate the audible sirens
and message functions for more than one and a half hours. The batteries
are continually maintained at peak energy levels by special integrated
Emergency and Weather
The WSI system can transmit both your emergency broadcasts and
other programming sources, such as NOAA weather broadcasts. With
the push of a button, the customer’s receiver can be used
to hear the NOAA simulcast. However, any emergency transmission
will override the NOAA broadcast.
Automatic testing is integral to the design of the ONALERT system
and is conducted in a manner that is not noticeable to the user.
Test commands issued from the transmitter continually compare
the time stamp on these messages to the microprocessor clock
the receiver. If there is disparity in the two times or if the
receiver has not heard from the transmitter within 24 hours,
the receiver will begin to chirp. The user can then contact
control center to remedy the problem.
Printed and electronic reports - generated automatically
- document the individual operator, activity time, type of
message sent, and
to whom the message was sent.
