Inovonics Wireless Corp. introduced Radius™, which it says is the security industry’s first situational awareness system utilizing Inovonics’ wireless positioning technology. Radius combines the latest mass notification capabilities with advanced positioning technology to pinpoint mobile duress alarm devices for use in industries including manufacturing/industrial plants, retail, education, government, and financial.

Radius monitors any Inovonics’ security, and sensor, end devices and interfaces to fire, access control and environment systems — providing instant notification to mass communication alert devices. For example, when a potential life-threatening event occurs, it is automatically transmitted to Radius. The system then processes and locates the position where the event is taking place and alerts the appropriate authorities immediately.

“Most systems only can notify when a duress alarm has been activated, but, with Inovonics’ wireless Radius system, users can now tell exactly where the [mobile] alarm is coming from. No other system in the security marketplace can do that today,” said Jeff Kessler, managing director of Imperial Capital.

Radius can be used within single buildings or scale to large, multi-building campuses spread over hundreds of acres. For information, visit
