Alarm Control System

Alarm Management is available for both TRBOnet Enterprise and TRBOnet Plus. Alarm Management helps you automate your daily tasks and deliver alerts from nearly any source to your MOTOTRBO radio, dispatchers, TRBOnet Mobile Client, email accounts or GSM phones. Event sources range from external control panels (e.g. fire alarm panels) connected to your TRBOnet server via TCP/IP or RS232, text messages and DTMF sequences sent by a radio, to Geofencing and native MOTOTRBO alarms. This module allows you to integrate TRBOnet with virtually any enterprise management system capable of sending text messages over TCP/IP. TRBOnet then parses such messages and triggers the rules as necessary.

Alarm Management for Option Boards

The event logic can also be applied to option boards. The radio can generate alarms in case the radio unit is in a restricted area, or one of safety alerts, such as Man Down, Crash Detect, or No Movement has been triggered. Using our Swift Utilities Pack, you can easily configure your MOTOTRBO Generic Option Board to send an alarm to the dispatcher if any of these conditions are detected. For more information about Option Boards please see this page.

Alarm Management for TRBOnet Enterprise and Plus

Alarm Management is a very powerful feature designed to simplify daily routine procedures and create emergency scenarios ensuring that alarm handling and notification is automatic, efficient and reliable. Critical alarms are automatically delivered to your Computer Aided Dispatch system, MOTOTRBO radios and Android and iOS phones and tablets with TRBOnet Mobile Client software. The dispatcher is not involved in alarm handling, which prevents human errors.

TRBOnet can process multiple event sources coming from either a MOTOTRBO radio network (such as radio on/off state, text message, radio alarm) or from third-party software and hardware connected to TRBOnet over IP, via a serial port and so on.

Automated Response System

Alarm Management for MOTOTRBO radio networks is a purchasable module for TRBOnet Enterprise and TRBOnet Plus. This system allows you

  • to select event types and event sources you would like to track,
  • to define trigger conditions,

The Alarm Management high-level diagram shows available event sources and response targets.The choice of event sources is not restricted to your MOTOTRBO radio network, such as radio calls or text messages. Your TRBOnet Server is able to receive and react to information from third-party software and hardware. TRBOnet can be integrated with many enterprise operations management system that can feed essential data into TRBOnet via TCP/IP or a serial port. The application supports a number of protocols including Modbus, RS232 and ESPA 4.4.4. The diagram below shows how an alarm control panel can be connected to TRBOnet using Moxa devices.
