What is Omni?
Omni is an all-in-one appliance designed to be a dedicated safety, security, and communications device. Standard models have the same hardware, so upgrading is as simple as a license purchase and software update.
New features will also be released as software upgrades, either on a licensed basis or as part of a system software update.
Installation of the Omni device requires no experience, outside installer, or even pulled cables. Just mount it on the wall and plug it in!
Because of the easy installation and license activation, Omni can be quickly and easily deployed to one or many locations, either all at once or incrementally.
Users can send messages to a single Omni device, system-wide, or any combination of devices in between. Messages can be ad hoc or saved and are launched either from Omni’s built-in touch screen or from the Connections Mobile app on any smart phone, mobile device, or computer.
In addition to manual user interaction, Connections can automatically communicate with Omni at the command of automated devices, such as fire panels, wireless buttons, and a vast number of other data sources.
As a dedicated, all-in-one device, Omni is designed to meet both emergency mass notification and everyday communication needs.
Omni is equipped with a battery backup and an internal wireless connection to other Omni devices so that it can maintain an emergency message even after power and network are lost.
The Omni device is made of Amish hand-crafted wood that comes in a variety of colors and stains so that it can match the decor of any room it’s placed in. Your emergency communication doesn’t have to only be functional – it can look good, too! See video clip for more information.
