Emergencies and security risks aren’t restricted to the lobby, reception area or the front office. Which is why vigilance and readiness are part of everyone’s job. Now, you can extend emergency alert capability farther and wider, more easily, with PCDuress®. PCDuress® leverages your existing IT network investment and connectivity to enable any networked desktop or laptop computer to initiate a Centurion system alert directly to first responders. Designed for schools, educational and healthcare campuses, corporate centers and other large facilities, PCDuress® is a cost efficient, user-friendly and easy to implement enhancement to emergency notification capability.
How it Works: PCDuress® is loaded onto a computer, residing on the same network as a Centurion® unit (sold separately), that you’d like to provide the duress button capability to. PCDuress® is then linked to the Centurion® and a location-specific notification is then input into the Centurion® system. When an issue arises a user can activate PCDuress® through either a hot key combination or mouse click. Once activated PCDuress® alerts the Centurion® of the issue and the Centurion® then relays the location-specific notification via two-way radio, phones, and email/text to emergency personnel.
Operating system compatibility: Windows XP, 7, 8
Centurion Requirements:Firmware version 7.10 or newer
