Concerned about security in the ED?

Posted by: Kenny Schiff on November 1, 2007

Customers have asked if there is a way to alert others of a threatening situation in a room without the perpetrator knowing. The answer: yes.

Through the Admin console, an administrator can put all members of the ED in the conference for ED, or have each one give the command “join the conference for ED.” Then when anyone in the department pushes and holds the call button down, everyone else in the ED will hear what is being said (as long as they continue to keep the button pressed).
