How Can ASR Help and How Do ASR Systems Work?

Our critical incident response technology uses hard-mounted buttons, mobile pendants and a mobile phone application to DIRECTLY communicate with first responders in the area to significantly decrease response times to an active threat or crisis situation.

What Sets the ASR Solution Apart From APP Only Solutions?

Here are some of the major differences between a DEDICATED HARDWARE solution, that ASR offers, vs all other app only based products. 

Reflex & Muscle Memory During a Life-Threatening Event

Studies have proven that performing simple tasks, such as entering your passcode into your phone, then dialing 911 can be nearly impossible for most people when their lives and those around them are in danger.

APP BASED

Now, imagine unlocking your phone, then scrolling to find the app that you never use, opening it, then scrolling through the long list of options, locating the type of emergency that pertains to your situation, then entering in the number of fields required to identify & validate your request for emergency response.

All of this is under the assumption that your mobile device is on your person at the start of the event. 

Note: ASR offers a mobile application as a complement to our comprehensive system.  End-users can purchase the application as a stand-alone system, but we strongly encourage the app be used as a compliment to our comprehensive options.

 

Vulnerabilities with Connectivity and False Alarms

Apps are fully dependent on WIFI or cellular for connectivity. Because of this, reliability can quickly become an issue. After you’ve sent your message to law enforcement, how are you sure that it was received and taken seriously? Does dispatch first try to contact the location and verify before sending police? Ultimately slowing down response time.  ASR utilizes both, Cellular and Hard-Wired broadband connections to Communicate events. 

Copy-of-APP-BASED-_1_

When a facility has hundreds of employees &/or students with an arsenal of emergency buttons in their pocket (apps), accidental activation is inevitable.  People & police can become “numb” to alerts from these sources after too often being used to either, falsely report incidents, or report incidents that are less than life-threatening.  ASR does offer a phone application for our alert systems, but we strongly encourage it be used in conjunction with our comprehensive offering.

Laws are Quickly Changing with Life-Saving Alert Devices 

Life-saving alert devices for situations where a facility is under attack are quickly becoming mandatory in many buildings. And while some areas are applauding apps as an effective solution, as these laws spread from state-to-state, the requirements are likely not going to be satisfied by an app-only solution.

Copy-of-APP-BASED-_2_

It is reasonable to assume that laws will be similar to some bills that have already passed, that require a dedicated hardware solution like ASR. Ultimately, facilities that invest in low-budget, less-effective app-only solutions, will soon be forced to re-invest in the proper equipment that will satisfy these needs. 

ASR offers the best critical incident response technology solution in the industry. Our reliable and redundant methods of alerting persons who are in danger, as well as providing the fastest notification to law enforcement by communicating directly with police dispatch are not matched.

 

The ASR Critical Incident Response Technology Solution is the Most Reliable Alert Notification System on the Market.  There is No Superior Solution.

ASR strongly believes that having dedicated hardware that is readily available and easy to operate is KEY when it comes to life-saving tools.

By utilizing dedicated sirens & strobes (combined with optional alerts on mobile devices), the situation is clear to anyone. And the response time is going to be incomparably faster and more reliable. 

Saving Time Saves Lives

Note: ASR offers a mobile application as a complement to our comprehensive system.
