OmniBeacon Visual Alarm Light and Cellular Transmitter



The OmniBeacon is installed on your equipment and sends a wireless signal to the local cellular tower. That signal is bounced to OmniSite’s web interface, where customers can log on – any day, any time, from any computer – and see how the equipment is operating.

A “call out” list is set up online so that when an alarm is triggered at your equipment, identified operators are contacted immediately. Because our engineers recognize today’s fast-paced busy world, that notification comes by way of text message, email, or call to your cellular or hard-wired phone.

OmniBeacon includes OmniSite’s “plug and play” GuardDog web interface, which eliminates the need for custom programming.

The OmniBeacon looks, feels, and installs like your typical alarm light. Simply attach it to the alarm output of any device and when the output is triggered the light turns on and the siren sounds. Only, the OmniBeacon does not stop there, it’s connected with the local cellular network and OmniSite’s cloud servers to give operators real-time alert notifications via text, email, and voice.OmniSite improved the traditional alarm light by adding Cellular Telemetry to the circuit. OmniBeacon is applicable everywhere you would want an alarm light and need a reliable monitoring solution that includes data logging and web-based access.
