NORTHFORD, Conn., August 6, 2013 – NOTIFIER by Honeywell (NYSE: HON) introduces the First Command emergency communication system (ECS), designed to seamlessly interface with virtually any commercial fire alarm to provide a system for broadcasting live and pre-recorded general messages and emergency alerts. By leveraging the code-required intelligible, survivable, fully-supervised qualities of new and existing fire alarm systems, First Command offers small, standalone facilities an ECS that is both economical and highly-reliable.
“The demand for a suitable ECS for smaller buildings like churches and offices and theatres is steadily rising,” states Marissa Guillen, Marketing Communications Manager, NOTIFIER. “Our goal was to make a flexible system that people could depend on and easily understand how to operate just by looking at it.”
First Command’s scalable design allows the system to be tailored to fit the needs of a single building, with ample capacity for future expansions. Every First Command system can support a combination of up to eight remote control panels and microphone consoles, which can be installed at easy access points throughout a facility.
As many as 14 pre-recorded messages can be customized for a facility to utilize for emergency alerts, as well as day-to-day notifications. With a maximum message length of one minute, First Command can support detailed instructions and bi-lingual communications. This system can also be used for non-emergency functions such as live paging or background music.
First Command joins NOTIFIER’s broad line of fire alarm and emergency communication solutions, capable of protecting facilities and campuses of any size or type. Whether intending to reach occupants within a building or people in an outdoor stadium, or across an expansive military base, NOTIFIER’s communication systems deliver highly effective, attention-grabbing results. Graphic displays, LED signage, and even distributed recipient technologies such as email, text messages and computer pop-ups are additional capabilities NOTIFIER offers to help facility managers and security directors ensure the right messages reach the right people.
