The Cistera mobile application gives authorized users the ability to activate alerts and lockdown from a mobile phone.

Panic button alerts and lockdown

Single push panic buttons can be placed in key locations that will reduce emergency alert activation processes by up to 9 seconds.

LMR UC integration

Monitoring and recording of active radio traffic is a cornerstone of safety communications and security response. In large-footprint campuses, coordination of resources along with real-time situational awareness key to mitigating crisis situations.

The ability to blend LMR (PTT) networks and phone networks together creates a single unified communications medium for response teams and other outside agencies.

Safety communications control and command

Dispatch centers or command supervisors can rapidly bridge channels allowing various emergency first responders to have the ability to communicate and unify action plans.

Radio traffic recordings provide investigations, administration and external agencies valuable information to piece together events or situational response history.
