WAVES Integrated Base Stations

WAVES Integrated Base Stations (IBS) are advanced, configurable control systems, part of ALERiTY's mass notification system for distributing critical information before, during and after an emergency.

With an intuitive, easy-to-use Graphical User Interface (GUI), WAVES IBS seamlessly integrates in-building and wide-area mass notification systems (MNS), providing secure activation of audible, visual and data messages and status monitoring of the MNS.

The system can operate as a stand-alone MNS or be integrated with other communication, fire and security systems for improved situational awareness.
