    Voice Alarm
    Voice Alarm is increasingly important in the safe management of buildings. A voice message informs occupants exactly what to do in an emergency and it is a long established fact that people respond more quickly and are more likely to take the correct action during an evacuation if voice messages are used instead of tone sounders.

    •           Clear directions to people in the building
    •           Live messages giving exact instructions to people who are not familiar with the surroundings
    •           Customised pre-recorded messages (available in multiple languages)
    •           Improved management of phased evacuation
    •           Non-emergency functionality (public address announcements, background music and advertisements) Schools
