GAI-Tronics Launches WiFi VoIP Emergency Telephones

Staying connected is a necessity in the 21st century, though not every locale has access to mobile coverage.

GAI-Tronics Corporation has launched its RED ALERT WiFi VoIP Emergency Hands-free Telephones to help people stay connected using reliable communications. The devices are designed to provide communications over a wireless local area network (WLAN).

The phones have been unveiled to complement the RED ALERT VoIP Emergency Telephones and can be used in a wireless installation or to extend the VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) system in areas where cable installation may not be possible.

The WiFi phones are ADA-compliant and SIP-compatible and provide the same functions as the VoIP devices. However, they’re on a wireless platform. Standard telephone functions like auto answer and a call received LED display are provided, as is an alarm reporting tool. This lets system supervisors monitor activity and handle caller needs and maintenance issues right away.

Each phone monitors issues such as speaker or microphone problems, stuck buttons and power loss. These issues can be reported by email or Syslog when they occur in real-time. Through self-reporting, maintenance and system costs that are usually associated with an emergency communication system.

Additionally, the WiFi phones can be configured through an embedded browser. A Web browser can be used to set up, view, monitor, and change settings on each unit. The phone also allows the use of solar power to make for a truly wireless install.

Last year, GAI-Tronics entered into a joint development and marketing deal with Burnside Telecom. At the time, it was revealed that the two companies would be partnering to produce and market a range of GSM-enabled rugged telephone and terminal products.
