When managing outdoor events and activities, you cannot only rely on your mobile device or computer to quickly deliver critical weather safety information. The DTN OnGuard Siren Alerting Solution helps ensure mass, on-site notification of approaching hazards.
- OnGuard includes three multi-directional sirens and a dual-color omni-directional beacon with various mounting options.
- It offers several different alarm tones and two distinct beacon colors.
- It features a sound output of 1,000 feet for 97 dB at 100 feet.
- The sirens and beacon tie into our WeatherSentry® system, which triggers the siren system for a preset timeframe.
- The sirens are maintenance-free for their lifetime.
- Easily set up a custom location and preset siren alerting criteria.
- Siren alerts include:
- Lightning – advisory, caution, and warning ranges, as well as all-clear notifications.
- Severe thunderstorm and tornado warnings – community and county-based.
- These customizable alerts can activate the system’s beacon and/or sirens to notify everyone in the immediate area to move to safety.
