ONCall™ turns your ONSPEC system into a powerful alarm monitoring and notification tool. ONSPEC does the alarm detection and ONCall™ makes the desired telephone calls, pages, or audio announcements.
When an alarm condition is detected, a user-defined list is consulted to determine who should handle the alarm. Calls are then made in a predetermined order that is valid for the current time at the location being called. A user can be informed of alarms via:
. Detailed messages to alpha pager
. Coded messages to numeric pager
. Detailed alarm messages sent to any e-mail account (including cell phones)
. Detailed alarm messages can be announced through your standard telephone or cell phone
. Pagers can be part of traditional dial-up pager systems or part of an on-site system.
A text-to-speech generator is used to make announcements and phone calls. There is no need to record the messages. The text-to-speech generator produces a consistent, easy-to-understand voice.
Announcements are made by dynamically building a sentence from the various fields configured by the user. This sentence is sent to the sound card through the text-to-speech engine. This varies over time since it is based upon current conditions.
To ensure that each user is called when scheduled to take calls, ONCall™ permits you to define multiple week schedules identifying days and hours that calls can be made (up to a 52-week schedule).
