Our Mission

We are dedicated to our mission of innovating safety solutions to empower and protect people (every day). We believe our values of empowerment, innovation, and advocacy keep us committed to creating workplaces where all staff feel supported to get help in an emergency, from the everyday to the extreme.

Our Values


Our CrisisAlert solution empowers staff to request help in an emergency, from the everyday to the extreme, so they can focus on the moments that matter most. We also empower staff to help keep their communities safe–anybody can trigger an alert anywhere on campus–so when they see something, they can say something. In the eyes of one of our customers, Chief John Newman, “We call it a force multiplier: putting this technology in the hands of more than 25,000 employees gives me 25,000 sets of eyes to help keep campuses safe.”

Centegix solutions


CENTEGIX was founded on the idea that technology can create safer, more secure environments. Our safety solution uses market-defining technology that delivers the functionality, connectivity, and accessibility needed to stand up to real-world emergencies. We approach solutions by challenging ourselves to improve on previous iterations and think critically about how our solution can meet the present and future safety needs and challenges of customers.


We wake up every day thinking about how we can better serve our customers. We are unyielding in our pursuit of a safer outcome for everyone in the moments that matter. Each CENTEGIX team member leverages industry-leading techniques and collaboration to create products and services that allow us to meet our internal goals while continuously growing and improving.
