A Visiplex wireless emergency notification system can cover a small school building up to an entire multi-building campus with one transmitter! The Visiplex systems uses a FCC approved paging band to send the voice and data information to all of its wirelessly controlled devices and use the needed transmission power, to provide full coverage to any facility size. Visiplex systems are installed in some of the largest commercial sites, universities, medical centers and government facilities in the country utilizing one transmitter to provide full radio transmission coverage.

A wireless alert system coverage is impacted by construction materials, certain shielded areas, antenna positioning, antenna height and overall transmitter power. For example, an small school building of up to 10,000 SF, could be covered with a low-power transmitter. A large or multi level building such as high school will need a medium power transmitter. A large area or multi-building site will require a high power transmitter. To get a better idea about your system power needs, please call our sales representatives.

Most of Visiplex wireless systems can be installed without the need of professional installers. Since the entire system is wireless, all of the remote components such as speakers, message boards, intercom stations and visual alert devices, can be installed without any professional assistance – connecting to AC power or POE power source is all that needed. A desktop base station system that use an indoor antenna can be installed with a simple magnetic antenna mounting procedure. If your system is designed to cover a large area, it is recommended to use a professional installer to install the transmitter antenna on the roof, and choose the best location for the transmitter. If you need or choose to install the system by a professional, Visiplex can offer professional installation services by our staff or recommend one of our resellers in your area.

Visiplex offers a built-in power backup option to most of its wireless products to ensure full functionality during power outage situations. It is recommended that all other system components such as the base station and external transmitters will be equipped with a power backup UPS.
