Pro Com to distribute Metis Secure’s emergency communications systems

MARCH 12, 2013

Pro Com Systems, a leading Midwestern security systems integrator, will now offer Metis Secure’s emergency communications and notification systems to its range of manufacturing, educational, health care and governmental customers.

Security and emergency personnel at large buildings, facilities and sites need an effective way to rapidly alert and instruct hundreds or even thousands of people in an emergency. With the Metis Secure system, emergency managers help ensure that within seconds, everyone on site knows what to do in a crisis. In addition, anyone at the site can use the system to speak with security at the press of a button.

“Violence, extreme weather, hazardous materials spills, and other emergencies have become almost everyday events,” said Steve Peppers, Operations Manager, Pro Com Systems. “Our customers tell us that they are looking for a better way to protect their people in the face of these threats. We chose to partner with Metis Secure because we believe the Metis Secure emergency communications system will help our customers secure their people and sites more effectively than any other emergency communications system on the market.”

The Metis Secure system includes indoor and/or outdoor Emergency Help Stations that broadcast alerts and actionable voice instructions to an entire site, or just one building, floor, or room.

Emergency and security personnel send emergency alerts and receive help calls with Metis Secure’s easy-to-use, map-based Command Center software, which they can access securely from on-site or off-site locations. The software also serves as a platform for other security and life safety systems, including access control, IP phones, mass email/text notification services, desktop alerts, hazardous materials sensors, and many others—so security personnel can monitor multiple systems from one interface. It uses redundant power systems and communications networks, so the system continues to work even if phone, internet, and power fail.

Pro Com will sell, install, and maintain Metis Secure systems for customers throughout the Midwestern US.

“Pro Com has been providing innovative communications solutions for nearly 30 years, and we are pleased to partner with them,” said Mark Kurtzrock, Metis Secure president and CEO. “Their forward thinking approach and customer base are a great match for our unique emergency communications systems.”

As an industry leader for nearly 30 years, Pro Com Systems has built a reputation on providing quality customer service and cutting edge communications technology.
