We’ve introduced Group SMS to offer this surprisingly useful feature to owners of all of our emergency response systems (except for 911 Help Now).
With Group SMS, an ATC Alert Customer’s loved ones can quickly be informed of emergency situations and easily coordinate a response with each other. Instant text messages to any mobile phone allow for a better response in real emergency situations – no app required.
How does it work?
At the push of a button, the monitoring center springs into action and engages emergency services if the situation requires. A text message is sent immediately to all authorized contacts with a link to the Priority Group Chat service. In the chat, participants can:
Receive instant notification of emergency situations
Obtain real-time updates of emergency activities, like when authorities are dispatched
Quickly start a group chat with the entire emergency contact call list
Use an “On My Way” button to let everyone else know that you are heading to the location of the emergency
