Gen2 can send recurring messages and prompts such as maintenance reminders as well as one-time instant messages. Gen2 can route alerts to individuals or entire groups via different connections. As events escalate, so can your recipient list. Whether it’s a status update or a life-safety alert, you can be confident the right people will receive the information.

Call Buttons

A single button press will send an alert, via Gen2, to any relevant member of staff, indicating where assistance has been requested, i.e. meeting rooms, reception desks, restaurant tables

Doorbells

When a front doorbell is triggered, staff are paged immediately and can respond accordingly, wherever they are. Maintain customer service and guest experience levels during out-of-hour periods or when less staff are available.

Alarm & Security

Fire Alarms / Lift Alarms / Pool Alarms / Disabled Alarms

Gen2 adds an extra level of safeguarding for staff and guests. When alarms are triggered, Gen2 determines the member of staff to alert, be it the fire warden, maintenance team or security. Evaluate reports to determine systematic security lapses.
