Learn More


Email is the most popular technology used as the conduit for work orders (tickets), alerts from fire alarms, machinery that requires attention and weather reports. It also allows communications with smartphone users. With text@trbo radios can send, receive and reply to emails as text messages.

text@trbo™ is deployed in hospitality with HotSOS, SynergyMMS, Guestware, StarGuest, etc. in hotels: JW Marriott, Hilton, Omni, Starwood, Hyatt, Sheraton, Intercontinental and hundreds of other properties worldwide. It has also been deployed with building management systems including Angus and IBM Maximo, as well as equipment from Honeywell and many others.

•  text@trbo was uniquely designed as a true middleware component: it is very easy to deploy, effective and can run unattended for years. 

•  Minimal configuration is required: only enter the email server credentials and the list of email addresses allowed to reach the 

radios and the application automatically detects and configures all the radio equipment.
