Paging has gotten Smart!
Torrence has been installing commercial paging systems for decades. Our expertise in designing customized paging solutions is a highly regarded service. Commercial paging solutions have evolved with the times. The reality of catastrophic weather events, active shooters, and a generally distracted population requires a multi-faceted approach to getting people’s attention. The task is then to clearly communicate information that may be life-saving.
Fortunately, there are impressive innovations that have taken office and plant paging to a new level. The foremost development has been the integration of VOiP phones, IP Networks, and Paging “endpoint” devices. IP paging speakers on your network allow you to design a true mass notification system that includes phones, text messages, computer screen pop-ups, and coordinated paging announcements. Imagine an automated system that directs your staff to the correct exits based on where a fire alarm was pulled, instead of running into the fire. Or a tornado alert that then directs people to the nearest safe location in your building.
For large open or noisy areas that require traditional 70v hi-power paging amplification, we can design a hybrid system. Digital to analog converters receive the VOiP message which is then routed to traditional 70v amplifiers and common paging horns. Separate IP message boards can provide scrolling text to reinforce the emergency message.
