Digital Signage as Emergency Alert Software

The Emergency Messaging Challenge

When emergencies occur, it is crucial to promptly and dependably communicate your message. By integrating third-party systems like QL, you can effectively display digital signage emergency alerts and notifications on your digital signage screens using emergency notification software products.

The QL Software Solution for Emergency Alerts

By using Navori Labs’ QL Digital Signage Software, you can equip yourself for any situation. Instantly displaying emergency alerts and notifications on screens worldwide becomes possible with this software.

QL offers three methods to activate alert content:

Firstly, establish a connection with a Common Alert Protocol (CAP) source, such as a corporate office or institutional building management system. When the source triggers an alert, each QL Player activates the corresponding alert message on the screen. You can create the alert message within QL or upload it to the system. Navori QL digital signage software adheres to CAP standards.

Secondly, employ the QL Server API to directly communicate with each QL Player using a device or third-party software app. This triggers the appropriate content, resulting in the instant appearance of the alert on all affected screens.

Thirdly, create a middleware app that interfaces with a physical device. When an emergency arises, the device generates a data feed that QL utilizes to trigger an alert across your screens.

The QL screen alert software is available in both cloud and on-premise versions, ensuring full compatibility with third-party alert systems.
