Alarm Control System (ACS)

Automatic alarm dispatch for increased safety and efficiency

ZONITH ACS receives alarm information from almost any sources and intelligently delivers these alarms to the right person(s) at the right time with text message alerts to their TETRA handset(s) or other compatible handheld devices.


The ZONITH Alarm Control System (ACS) is a Windows based software application that intelligently and automatically dispatches emergency and business critical alarms to MOTOTRBO radios.

ZONITH ACS picks up alarms from any alarm source. It pairs the alarm with the right on duty employee using an intelligent scheduler, ensuring that problems get handled at the right time by the right person. ACS automatically selects alarm responders based on availability, location and skill set. ACS is a fully automated system and is designed to significantly improve the way people work and manage their time. Alarms can be sent as text messages to people using MOTOTRBO, TEAM VoWLAN phones, pagers, mobile phones or email devices.

The ZONITH Alarm Control System user interface is browser based and uses as an intelligent scheduler to assign alarms to individual users based on competencies and provides automatic alarm escalation to ensure action is taken. The ZONITH Alarm Control System combined with MOTOTRBO radios allows people to remotely acknowledge, decline and close alarms using MOTOTRBO radio messaging and Job Ticketing features.
