Control Center Website

PSN includes a control center website which can act as a command and control center during a crisis. In calmer times the administrative website provides user maintenance functions.  
  • Today's messages are seen in real-time, so administrators have current information.
  • Replies can be directed to individuals, groups, or the entire network. This allows administrators to provide instructions and information to targeted groups.
  • User group management. Add and edit groups and their users.
  • Approve/disapprove new member requests. Edit user contact information, Delete expired users.
  • Manage roles and permissions for groups.
  • Search and view archived messages. Postmortems of emergencies can be conducted.

PSN Linked Networks System

Private Safety Network’s Linked Networks provides an interconnected system based on choice and need.  Though interconnected, each network retains its own identity, and it remains completely independent and autonomous.  When linked together they form a complete PSN Linked Networks System.  The distributed architecture of the system increases reliability, speed and performance. This system also allows for a free flow of multi-directional near-instant information to be communicated and responded to.  Every unit within the system can be connected while being completely self-contained at the same time.

This process creates a constantly evolving system that adjusts to the inevitable changes and needs of both the independent networks and the Linked Networks System.  Linked networks are seamless to the user. They simply appear as another group for messaging. The PSN Linked Networks System is both complexity and simplicity at the same time.

Security System/Access Control Integration

PSN can also interface with Security systems and Access Control systems, combining data from devices with user input. This provides complete information about the situation.

Security Systems

  • Alarms for forced doors, intruders, invalid scans, etc., create PSN message threads to groups that you select
  • Notifications from the security system are received nearly immediately
  • Recipients can use PSN to coordinate responses, and provide information to everyone involved
  • They can also share information, such as “I see an intruder in Chase hall by the back door”

Access Control Systems

  • Data from ID card scanning and smart locks provide user locations
  • Administrators can see all the users who have entered the facility, if they have safely exited, or their current location
  • Names, locations, and head counts are based on real-time knowledge and are sent to your Room Status Reports

Room Status Reporting

In an emergency, knowing who is safe and where the trouble spots are is essential. PSNs Room Status Reporting gives administrators a fast visual report of statuses throughout their campus or facility. The room status report displays both the status of each room as well as the number of people in each room. Administrators can provide as many status descriptions as they like, and can customize the icon and color associated with each status.

PSN Advanced Location Technology

Location information from a cell phone’s GPS can be very helpful, but is only as good as the accuracy of the GPS in the area, and does not help identify the floor a user is on. PSN provides additional location information through the use of barcode/QR scanning, BLE beacons and/or smart lock access control systems. Combine any of these options with our Private Safety Network Room Status Report sent directly to your control center website to determine your room by room safety status, including the number of persons, along with the names of those using the PSN app.

Barcode/QR Scanning

Barcode/QR scanning allows scanning of ID cards, or scanning of rosters or student class lists. This reports a user’s location to the control center website. Administrators can then view the number of users and their names/ID numbers on the room status page.

BLE Beacon Technology

BLE beacons can be used to pinpoint user’s locations without requiring any user action. As a user comes within the proximity of a beacon, the whereabouts of the user is reported to the control center website.

PSN Security

The security of a Private Safety Network (PSN) is extremely important. Here is how PSN addresses various threats:

  • All communication is encrypted and sent over secure links (HTTPS). This is to prevent fake messages from being sent into the PSN (spoofing).
  • Redundancy is built into the messaging system. For optimal speed, push notifications are used as the primary method. If no messages have been received for a period of time, the app requests messages from the PSN server.
  • All messages can be traced to an individual user. Bad actors cannot anonymously send out bad information.
  • Message senders are validated before messages are sent. Every transmission contains authentication data to identify the user sending the message request.
  • Administrators can quickly remove bad actors by using the control center website.
  • Administrators also have approval rights on users added to their PSN. No user can be added without an administrator approval.
  • Administrators have the ability to review all PSN messages using the message archive feature. This allows them to determine if there were any bad actors during an event.
  • The message archive also allows administrators to understand the information flow, and provides a timeline of events as they happened. This can be very helpful in doing a post mortem analysis of an event.

Advantages Over Existing Systems

How is Private Safety Network different than calling 911 or text messaging?

  • Push notification messages are nearly instantaneous - faster than texting.
  • Messages are encrypted, they are private, and cannot be spoofed (faked).
  • Communications are mult-user, everyone can contribute and receive valuable information.
  • Broadcast capability allows messages to go out to the entire network simultaneously.
  • PSN creates a network for exchanging information.
  • Users can select entire groups of people with one tap.
  • Messages can be marked as emergency, high, or normal priority.
  • Cellular plans and signal are not required, Wi-Fi can be used, and is generally even faster.
  • Location information is attached to all messages.
  • Messages can go to onsite personnel, rather than going to a dispatch miles away.
  • Linked networks provide ability to connect to external resources (Fire, police, EMTs, other facilities).

Private Safety Network is not a replacement for 911.
