Private Safety Network and its enhanced features of a Status Reporting System and Advanced Location Technology create a fully integrated, comprehensive communication system. The integrated PSN communication system uses Bluetooth Low Energy (BTE) beacon technology, Access Control System interfaces, and Bar Code/QR scanning, to provide a vast array of powerful tools to all varieties of administrative needs, in schools, nursing homes, fire and police departments, college and business campuses etc. PSN is one of the best solutions available to users since many available products feature less direct, slower, centralized communication, or are built on a company heritage which leads to a less complete and less effective approach.

Linking these networks provides a further benefit for networks with common interests, such as a hospital, a nursing home, and first responders that can then share the speed of encrypted communications with each other all at the same time. By also providing important information for key personnel; businesses, administrators and responders can manage emergencies successfully.

Emergency Broadcast

  • This private messaging system also allows the PSN user to distinguish between high priority messages to specifically chosen recipients; and, an Emergency event, by instantly broadcasting to the entirety of their PSN network, and other linked PSN networks.  This global broadcast occurs automatically in one motion by tapping the lightning bolt button at the top of the phone.  The lightning bolt shoots out an emergency notification to all of the participant population in virtually real-time.  Responses and additional information among all of the various group participants can then be exchanged providing a rapid global response of information again in virtually real-time.  The sheer speed of your PSN exchange of information in an emergency event is a powerful force.
  • PSN is not just for schools. Any organization can use it – businesses, hospitals, nursing facilities, apartment buildings – anywhere there is a network of people who want to communicate. Individual PSN networks can also link with other PSN networks, creating a broad, far reaching messaging system.
  • The private network participant is in charge of their own safety, and that of others, by what they see, hear, or sense; and, then rapidly share using the lightning bolt button.

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.

App Room Status Interface

Room statuses are reported by PSN app users with a simple, intuitive user interface. Teachers can relay their students’ status and needs. Assistant living and nursing home staff members can describe the condition of their patients. Security teams can report the status of each room in a facility. This information allows administrators to allocate resources where they are needed.

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 one 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 can also interface with Access Control systems, combining data from ID card scanning at entrances along with scans of smart locks throughout the facility. Administrators can see all the users who have entered the facility, if they have safely exited, or their current location. With the Advanced Location Technology, the names, locations, and head counts along with your customized room risk assessment designations are based on real-time knowledge from these Room Status Reports sent to your website. The reports are sent automatically and continuously without requiring any user input. This can provide valuable information during any critical event.

These are optional additions to the Private Safety Network System. Our goal is always to provide you with the easiest, fastest, most efficient path to your safety and that of those around you.

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.

Control Center Website

PSN includes an control center website which can act as a command and control station 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. User behavior can be reviewed.
