The Genasys interface is easy to use, even for first-time operators. The GIS-centirc interface provides easy targeting by FIPS or ZIP codes enabling geo-fencing on the fly from imported shapes.
Easy to Use Templates
Save time and eliminate errors by creating templates that can be launched in just two clicks or edited on the fly before publishing. Set up templates for routine testing and frequent alerting. Divide areas into sections so that relevant information reaches affected groups.
Each alert can be launched in “TEST MODE” to eliminate errors in public-facing messages. Configure speakers, run audio messages and practice emergency scenarios, all within the safety of the test playground.
Wireless Emergency Alert Support
Deliver public safety alerts to the cellphones of those in affected areas – no need to opt-in or signup. Geo-fence the affected area and deliver precise instructions and updates in seconds.
Emergency Alert System
Deliver alerts and updates on any modality that supports IPAWS, including local, cable and satellite TV, FM and AM radio – and other targeted broadcasts.
WEA 3.0 Ready
Genasys’ IPAWS implementation fully supports FEMA WEA 3.0 specification, which includes increased character limits, simultaneous Spanish and English broadcast to WEA, enhanced geo-fencing precision and extended WEA handling codes.
English & Spanish
Genasys broadcasts English and Spanish instructions in the same alert. Recipients’ phones will automatically receive alerts in Spanish, if set to Spanish.
Increased Message Length
Genasys publishes legacy 90-character messages as well as extended 360-character messages in the same alert. Recipients’ devices capable of handling the extended character count will receive the extended messages.
Additional WEA Handling Codes
Genasys supports all WEA 3.0 handling codes introduced by FEMA.
Residents, visitors and tourists can opt-in to receive public safety alerts and notifications by adjusting their cell phone settings, if automatic opt-in is not available in a region or country.
