In research and industrial environments, the Metis Secure platform enables much faster, more effective emergency response:

  • Instantly reach everyone at the plant if trouble strikes–and simultaneously broadcast alerts and urgent voice directives via PA systems, computer screens, IP phones, and multi-modal Help Stations. Your people no longer have to listen for the number of whistles and decipher what they mean.
  • Rapidly direct people to evacuate, shelter in place, lock down the plant, or take other appropriate action in a crisis. And, simultaneously broadcast different instructions to different parts of your facility–helping to quickly and effectively coordinate emergency response.
  • Automate emergency and life safety processes by tying in sensors and other process control devices and systems. If a dangerous situation is detected, the Metis Secure platform automatically triggers predesignated directives to everyone in a specific area or in the entire plant. The system also “reads” CAP alerts and NOAA weather radio data and can automatically instruct people to shelter in place during extreme weather.
  • Arm your people with fixed panic buttons or mobile panic apps, so they can instantly report a problem directly to the control room in case of trouble. Equip strategic areas with Emergency Help Stations, so people in need can press a button and speak directly with medical teams, security, or other designated plant personnel.

It all adds up to speed and actionable information–helping you protect lives and property, and contain small incidents before they become headline-grabbing events.
