Safer Facilities

Keep your buildings secure, and provide alerts when incidents occur

Chances are high your organization already has some building security measures in place. Cameras, badge or keycode entry to restricted areas, and mass notification alerts are just some of the solutions capable of keeping your critical data, systems, and employees safe from threats and disasters. Sentinel partners with many of the global security leaders to ensure you have the proper tools and training to protect your premises no matter their size or complexity.


Closed circuit television (CCTV) systems use strategically placed analog cameras to privately monitor the exteriors and interiors of your organization, as well as highly secure areas to prevent unauthorized intrusion and better manage any incidents or altercations.

Identity Access Areas

Restricted zones require extra access permissions, where doors and other entry points can only be unlocked with the swipe of a badge, the entering of a keycode, a biometric scan, or the use of a heavily encrypted application.

Video Surveillance

Connect smart cameras to your network and cloud for advanced integrations with other important parts of your infrastructure. This allows you to better manage your physical environment, identify issues and deploy alerts faster, as well as use next-generation tools such as facial recognition to identify people for security purposes.

Security Training

Human error remains the number one cause of security incidents. Regular security training gives your employees a better understanding of the policies, procedures, and best practices that protect your organization, and significantly lowers the risk of error or falling prey to phishing and other forms of manipulation.

Emergency Management Planning

When a major incident occurs at your facility or campus, a detailed emergency management plan is essential. It includes actions for a multitude of emergency incidents, complete with step-by-step instructions, which resources to engage, and what mass notification devices/systems to activate so your team is fully prepared to effectively handle all types of situations. Sentinel consultants have extensive experience with emergency management plans, and can help your organization develop one in alignment with the specific solutions and resources available to you.

Active Shooter

Send text, audio, and/or video notifications to people with specific instructions on what they can do to protect themselves and stay safe from harm, such as instituting lockdowns or evacuations.

Extreme Weather

Emergency notifications can be automatically sent to users and facilities moments after the National Weather Service issues a severe weather alert for the area. 

911 Alerts

When someone within a facility uses an IP phone or other networked device to dial 911, designated personnel receive a notification and can access near-immediate recordings of the call to gain a better understanding of the situation and what actions need to be taken.

Planned Messages

School bells, regular announcements, safety alerts, daily reminders, and many other types of prerecorded notifications can be scheduled through an easy-to-use interface. 

Intercoms and Live Paging

Use desktop phones, local room speakers, and/or overhead systems to notify specific people or an entire facility through live audio paging, hands-free intercoms, as well as push-to-talk functionalities.

Mass Notification

When an emergency of any kind occurs in a public location such as a school or office, it is essential to inform both those in the vicinity as well as responders capable of providing assistance to those in need. Sentinel offers mass notification systems and solutions designed to trigger and spread alerts both on-site and to mobile devices so the right people stay informed and can take proper action no matter their location.

Alerts Anywhere

Notifications can be sent throughout facilities, as well as to mobile devices via text message or phone call so even those off-site can help manage a situation and provide resources as needed.

Immediate Action

Automated processes ensure messages are distributed just moments after an alert is triggered to help ensure there is no delay in response.
Mass Notification Solutions

Sentinel regularly develops mass notification systems for all types of environments, and will work closely with your organization to create a solution that integrates seamlessly with your facility. They can be used to help provide real-time updates/insights, commission additional safety resources, as well as compose analytics and reports.
