The on-line panic alarm system allows users a panic button facility which will trigger the panic alarm displays. On the earlier OTU and ELF based CMS systems, this facility was augmented with additional buttons or panic strips within an interview area, but the move to web based systems has removed the ability to implement these additional safety features. The system still supports additional panic alarm sources which can be implemented if required.
The core panic alarm system triggers a panic sound on the PA system, flashing display on the LED displays ( if available ), and displays on the workstation and any configured staff side displays. Additional links to the CCTV system are also provided.
