CENTEGIX™ launches ContactAlert™ to Fight Covid-19 in Schools
CrisisAlert™ Platform Enhanced to Meet Demands of K-12 Educators
Atlanta, July 14, 2020 – CENTEGIX™ announces the availability of ContactAlert™, a platform extension to its market-leading CrisisAlert™ solution, to support school district leaders during the Covid-19 pandemic. ContactAlert enables district leaders to protect their teachers and staff by anonymously contact tracing school constituents that may have been in contact for a defined period of time with infected individuals. The technology can also be used for visitors that enter the school so that employees can be better protected against infections coming from outside of the school.
“CENTEGIX was founded on the idea that technology can create better and safer learning environments,” said Matthew Stevens, CEO of CENTEGIX. “Knowing the power of our platform, customers asked us for help with contact tracing. Expanding the use of our private security and location network to include contact tracing was a natural fit to battle the Covid-19 pandemic. For districts that want contact tracing, ContactAlert will be a valuable component of their COVID-19 preparation and risk mitigation plan”, said Stevens.
Data privacy is a fundamental design principle of ContactAlert and CrisisAlert. Data will be anonymously provided only for an incident that meets contact tracing criteria defined by the CDC and Departments of Public Health, which is currently more than 15 minutes of close exposure.
CrisisAlert is a revolutionary IoT platform that protects nearly 1 million K-12 students and staff in 10 states from extreme incidents such as active shooters to everyday in-school incidents such as student altercations and medical emergencies.
“We rely on CrisisAlert to increase safety in our district and help teachers be in control of their classrooms so that they can focus on the learning environment. With the new ContactAlert capabilities, school districts can do contact tracing to manage the spread of COVID-19 and leverage even more value from the CrisisAlert investment”, said Dr. Shanna Downs, Superintendent Gilmer County Georgia school district.
CENTEGIX™ innovates technology to save and enrich lives. Our CrisisAlert™ solution is an IoT incident alert platform that utilizes mobile and desktop applications and a mesh network to provide property-wide protection. CrisisAlert is a force multiplier, allowing staff and security professionals to request assistance and implement emergency protocols from anywhere. We go well beyond the limitations of legacy communications devices and single-dimensional apps, because in a crisis: Every. Second. Matters.
