Digital Messaging Service (DMS)
Emergency alerts direct to your mobile
DMS (Digital Messaging Service) is a mass notification system that can send emergency text, email, WhatsApp, voice message or Fireco InSite App notifications to an unlimited amount of users who are subscribed to the service. This could be used for pre-alarm notifications and evacuation alerts.
If you do not have a network that the DMS box can connect to, we can provide a connection via Internet Connection for ProHub and DMS.

Users text a location code and will receive a reply confirming they are registered. The text will contain a link where users can choose an alert preference. DMS alert types include text, email, WhatsApp, voice or InSite App notification.
When the alarm is activated the user will receive an emergency alert straight to their mobile phone.
Scenario 1: Fire alarm call point
The call point has been pressed and the fire alarm panel is activated. DMS is triggered and sends an evacuation alert to subscribers.
Scenario 2: Hard-wired input
DMS is hardwired into another system, when the system changes, DMS will send out a notification.
Scenario 3: Fireco Webhook
DMS is connected to another cloud-based system, when the system changes, DMS will send out a notification.
Scenario 4: Panic button
The panic button is pushed and DMS is triggered. This sends an alert to the security team who then assess the situation. Other subscribers receive a delayed alert telling them to evacuate the building.

The Fire Marshals at the School of Life Sciences have benefitted from the installation of DMS in their building. The SLS Safety Team are pleased with the product because “all Fire Marshals are now aware of the fire alarm activations in all parts of the complex.”
This means that if a fire were to break out in the building, the Fire Marshals can be reactive and take the appropriate actions to keep the staff, students and school safe from fire.

“We had no system in place before DMS. If the fire alarm went off I would rely on people coming to my office to tell me.
“It works well for my premises staff, all of who subscribe to this and can react to a fire alarm even when off-site. They can log into our external portal to check the CCTV monitors and can then respond from there.
“I would absolutely recommend Fireco without any hesitation, my experience with them has been very good!”
