Metis Secure Solutions delivers software and hardware products that can help you protect your people, facilities, and assets when emergency strikes.
Metis Secure Command Center software enables control, integration, and automation of emergency communications, life safety, and security systems at your facility or campus from on or off site, via internet browser or mobile device.
When integrated with your site’s existing communications devices – such as IP phones, digital signs, computer screens, and PA speakers – the Command Center acts as the hub for your Emergency Communications Information Management (E-CIM) system.
MS-5100 and MS-6100 indoor and outdoor Emergency Help Stations provide a fast and effective communication link to strategic site locations, to enable you to broadcast multi-modal emergency alerts—including voice directives, flashing lights, sirens, and text on built-in LCD screens.
Metis Secure In-Building Alerting Station
They also provide built-in, inbound help call functionality – via two-way, hands-free, live voice—between people in need and security personnel or police.
Each Help Station is battery-backed and acts as an independent wireless network node, forming a redundant communications and power network that helps ensure that the system still works even if phone, power, and internet fail in a crisis.
For those who need a discreet way to signal for help, Metis Secure offers a line of software and hardware-based panic buttons, plus a mobile panic app.
Metis Secure system is built to tie together security and life safety systems leveraging your previous investments
Metis Secure software and hardware easily integratE with both network and analog security and life safety systems—including access control, IP video, handheld radios and mobile phones, hazardous materials and other sensors.
The Metis Secure Command Center integrates with video, access control, handheld radios, gas detectors, IP phones, outdoor loudspeakers, email/text alert services, and other security and life safety systems.
Metis Secure has partnered with Desktop Alert Inc. to provide a new comprehensive approach to enhance both security and response during an emergent event.
With active shooter incidents on the rise, security preparedness training integrated with the right security technology can be life-saving.
“Metis Secures’ technology insures less than 10 second alerting to all emergency command centers,” explains Howard Ryan, Founder of Desktop Alert Inc.
“Beacon alert technology with limited LED text message screens and text-to-speech speakers without bi-directional real-time voice is limited in an active emergency.”
“When lives are at stake, seconds count. Common area alerting for personal safety requires instant two way LIVE voice capability.”
“Reading an alert is one thing, communicating by voice during an active emergency is a must.”
“Our family of alerting systems now provides this fabulous common area alerting end-point solution.”
Metis Secure is a industry pioneer in network-based in-building two-way live voice alerting solutions and continues to be on the forefront of developing unique, innovative solutions that harness the power of IP-Based and wireless technology.
Metis Secure “Call for Help” Boxes
In an emergency, a user pushes a button to automatically send a call for help to police.
Police can instantly isolate the location of the call on a computer and send an officer to an exact location.
The boxes can also be used to push out messages to the building occupants.
Metis Secure users include manufacturing and research facilities, universities and schools, commercial office buildings, large parking garages, and others.
In a crisis, fast, effective emergency communications can make the difference between a relatively contained event and a major catastrophe that includes loss of life, multiple injuries, destruction of assets, and a public relations disaster.
Organizations use their Metis Secure systems to broadcast targeted, actionable emergency alerts and instructions to everyone at the site of an emergency, in seconds—even if power, cell networks, and internet are down.
