We're looking to overhaul our current panic alarm system. We have wireless handheld devices connected to CCURE. Various problems include/not limited to: devices with dead batteries, devices locked in drawers, devices taken out of range/lost/misplaced.
We do also have a desk telephone button for panic alarms, however due to new institutional direction of 'collaborative shared office spaces' and subsequent reduction of physical desk phones, this might not be our ideal solution.
We are looking for best practices that would include:
-assessment to determine approval for individual panic device approval (risk/safety assessment)
-device types and integration (CCURE, Milestone, Informacast)
-any chargeback/revenue generating structures you may have in place to cover cost + future replacement (unit cost, monitoring fees)
Thanks all, safe week/end.
