TIM8 Alerting enables an alert to be triggered from any phone, Cisco Jabber Client, Cisco Webex Client, or ACTIGY®. This allows for precise evacuations or silent alarms. Evacuation alerts can be based on IP subnets, TIM8 groups, or CUCM device pools. If there is a silent alarm in threat situations, only the microphone on the IP phone is switched on by pressing a button and the audio signal is transmitted to a predefined group of IP phones. Additionally, a text message can be shown on the display of the recipient phones and an email notification can be sent. Licensing is based on the number of objects in the alert groups (no multiple counting).
TIM8 Alerting enables an evacuation alert to be triggered from any phone, Cisco Jabber Client, a Cisco Webex Client or an ACTIGY®. Depending on the alert target, this can be done within a TIM8 group or an IP subnet. This way locations, buildings or floors can be mapped. The alerting can be done on the phones by means of a text message, an attention tone or an voice announcement. Any calls taking place on phones at that time are overlaid. Only text messages are displayed in Jabber. Accurately distinguishing which phones/Jabber to alert allows for precise notification and evacuation of groups. Collateral damage and outbreaks of panic are thus reduced to a minimum. The displayed text message can contain further information, e.g. the assembly point. In addition, any number of evacuation groups can be defined. The silent alarm, which is also an alerting option, can be used in all conceivable threat situations. It is triggered by an XML service or a connected ACTIGY® Button. The XML service establishes a multicast connection with a predetermined group of phones (target devices) by pressing a button on the Cisco IP Phone (source device). The target devices show a message on the display that can be specified as desired. The service activates the speaker on the target device and plays back what is spoken on the source device. It is suitable for all environments with threat potential through direct party traffic (e.g. offices, institutes, insurance companies, citizens' offices, banks). An ACTIGY® button integrated into the solution can be used to trigger the alarm even more discreetly. Any calls taking place at the target device at this time are overlaid. This ensures that adequate action can be taken in emergency situations at all times. This function can also be used for announcements to a defined group of telephones. Licensing is based on the number of objects in the alert groups (no multiple counting).
