Instantly move your campus to action in a crisis, with Metis Secure’s IP-based emergency notification and communications system.

  • Broadcast actionable voice and text instructions throughout campus, indoors and out, with sirens and flashing lights for urgency.
  • For contained incidents, target alerts to individual buildings, floors, or rooms.
  • Securely launch alerts from anywhere, on- or off-site, via any computer browser or mobile device.
  • Leverage equipment you already own–send alerts through IP phones, digital signs, computer screens, paging systems, and more.

And, give students, faculty, staff, and visitors a hotline to campus police, to report critical information or summon help.

  • They can instantly speak with campus police by pressing any Metis Secure Help Station button. Your campus IP network transmits the call, eliminating the need for additional phone lines.
  • Designated faculty and staff members can discreetly summon help using Metis Secure’s IP panic buttons or mobile apps.
  • At the police station, the Metis system’s on-screen maps and floor plans automatically display the call location–dispatchers can rapidly deploy officers to the scene.
