Event Alert and Notification:

Cistera’s EAN solution group delivers notification capabilities including scheduled ringing of bells or announcements, campus wide broadcasts, on-campus alerts, off campus notification and messaging to faculty or parents via land line or mobile devices. Automated calls to first responders in the event of a campus emergency reduces response times. On campus 911 calls can generate notification to administration and campus security.

Call recording and retention:

Admissions, Administration, Maintenance, Supervision, Faculty and Support utilize Cistera’s QAM solution group to capture and maintain call records and if need transmit the call record via email to another party for response.

Campus Safety and Security:

Campus Security benefits from Cistera’s LMR solutions which tie Radio to campus phone systems.  In addition, Cistera EAN and QAM allow monitoring of panic buttons and Emergency Help Call sites, make announcements or capture assistance requests.

Public Schools, Colleges, Universities, Medical Campuses and Government Laboratories utilize the full range of Cistera solutions to link communications between Campus Safety and Security personnel and Administration.

Cistera Secure Campus:

Campus security starts with points of entry. Cistera’s Secure Campus is a component of Cistera Event Alert and Notification (EAN) allowing administrators to passcode activate campus entry lockdown from a phone and, at the time all-clear is issued, remove the lockdown. Campus Secure works in conjunction with Physical Security Systems for perimeter lockdown and the campus phones. It allows secure activation of full or partial lockdown from a desk phone or mobile device. Once activated, doors are locked, EAN alerts are sent to Administration and Security teams and calls on administration lines can be automatically recorded. In addition, notification can be sent to the local EMS dispatch for response.
