Another Problem Solved Through Vigilance Software

​Here is an application that can extend the use of an existing Vigilance Emergency Notification System.  One of our customers is having an issue with teenagers smoking in the student restrooms.  In order to keep costs down it makes sense to install Early Warning Smoke Detectors (like you find on airplanes) on the existing Notifier Fire Alarm Control Panel as the addressable wiring is already located in or near the restrooms.  Once these detectors are installed on the existing wiring we are able to map the alarms on these detectors to addressable modules that connect to the Vigilance System.  When the detectors go off they will not set off the building Fire Alarm.  Instead we will trigger an alert with Vigilance to notify the School Resource Officer and other applicable faculty via desktop messenger, email, and text message.

Although this is not what we originally designed Vigilance for, it certainly solves yet another problem.
