Pressing a button/key/remote in this situation can send out an alert to everyone. The recipient for example will then receive a full screen popup which can also display the escape plan. Additionally, the pc will be locked and thereby saved from misusage.

The Alarm App
The Cordaware Alarm App offers different ways to realize your alerting conecpt quickly and effortlessly.
Step One: Management of the resources
When managing the resources you have the possibility to automatically import them based on your Active Directory. Resources can also be created manually or via a network scan.
Import of resources based on your Active Directory
Existing resources can be imported easily and the computer to room relations are created automatically. Those will be defined by domain attributes for example.
Generate resources manually / network scan:
There are two ways in which you can manage your resources:
1. List import
You can import rooms and computers into the Alarm App via lists.
2. The network scan
You also have the possibility to import resources via a network scan.
Step two: Managing room assignments
In the second step you assign your computers to the rooms in which they are located.
Step three: alarm circles
In the third and last step the alarm circles will be created.
The rooms created in step two will now be assigned to so called initator rooms. Those recipient rooms will then be alerted when a computer in the initator rooms initiates an alarm.
In order to grant your users the maximum amount of safety, you now have the possibility to create an alarm with the highest security standards using the Cordaware bestinformed Alarm Edition Powerfeatures!
Additional recipients which will always automatically receive an alarm as soon as it’s initiated!
You can define a minimum amount of recipients in the alarm edition. Let’s assume that we initiate an alarm and at least 10 people have to be alerted; now there are only 5 people in the building and the minimum amount of recipients can not be reached. In this case the Emergency group will immediately be alarmed.
You don’t only want to alert the security staff or the emergency group but also the police or an external security service? No problem! With the escalation group you can send out an E-Mail or SMS additionally to every alarm.

Automated Alerting - OPC
PC based Alerting/Evacuation
When defining emergency and evacuation strategies, it is essential to consider effective means for communicating the threat as quickly as possible to all persons currently located in the endangered building or area. Especially the ever growing number of PC based jobs calls for an extension of the previous concepts.
In addition to acoustic alerts, it is vitally important to effectively push the alert directly to each user’s individual PC screen as well. This is even more important when it comes to silent alerts!
Cordaware bestinformed® currently offers the quickest method of sending instant alerts directly to any number of PCs and in various formats. Next to the highly targetable distribution of information on threat and evacuation, it is also possible to instantly lock all screens, all at once!
Automation / OPC
For automating the alert-process, the bestinformed® interface MailToInfo is used. Incoming emails from alarm-systems, such as fire monotoring systems, are instantly transformed into screen alerts and are distributed to thousands of users within a few seconds. The email-alert is sent either directly from the alert-system or from an OPC-Client. The majority of currently used professional alarm- and security-systems offer an OPC-Server for providing the events platform independently.
Therefore, Cordaware’s bestinformed® instant-alerting supports all devices for which an OPC-Server is available.
