IP PoE Intelligent Audio Solutions
Netgenium is an award-winning manufacturer of solutions that take advantage of the IP network. They are a UK based manufacturer who offers a range of IP based solutions that when combined can create an intelligent, scalable and feature-rich security system.
The Netgenium range of IP PoE Active Speakers can provide a variety of intelligent solutions. It can operate as a traditional PA system with the benefits of IP or can work very well alongside other systems such as CCTV, Access Control, IP Telephony etc.
The flexibility of the solution allows the IP Speakers to be controlled in many different ways creating an almost endless list of opportunities to include IP Speakers in a solution for instance –
- Adding audio challenge to assist the security of a premises
- Announcing automated customer welcome messages or product advertising
- Offering information about the state of a 3rd party system i.e. door is open, temperature in oven is too hot, person is too close to edge of railway platform
The potential of a security breach at a school, college or university has become more prevalent in today’s society. This has led to the installation of many security systems such as CCTV, Access Control and Barriers to help protect staff, students and parents.
The systems have the ability to work together so a push of a button, click on a screen or swipe of a smart card could send a site into Lockdown mode immediately securing doors and gates sending pre-recorded announcements around the buildings.
The system is incredibly flexible and allows the end user to design and achieve the Lockdown solution that suits their own specific requirements.
