Win-911 alarm notifications promise improved response times
November 12, 2015 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Nov. 12, 2015 – Win-911 is announcing “major updates” to smartphone and tablet apps for Apple iOS and Android devices.
New notification sound selections are provided, allowing users to assign different ringtones to the Mobile-911 app. According to the company, in-app sounds will provide better alerts in noisy environments, and enable better response times to active alarm events, even when the app is open. iOS users can select a notification sound from a variety of newly added ringtones. Several of these tones were selected to be louder and longer than the standard iOS default. Android users are still free to select a custom tone from their device. Users are also now able to change the appearance of their alarm display screen by adjusting font sizes, making alarm notifications more visible and easier to read. Bulk deletion options have been added to help save time and streamline use.
