WIN-911 is the most widely used alarm notification software in the world. It connects directly with your SC ADA, HMI or DCS system and has programmable logic to route, filter, and escalate alarms and events to any recipient with any communication method, such as smartphone push notifications, text messaging, email, phone calls (analog or VoIP), web browsers, alphanumeric pagers, marquis displays, and other communication methods.
You have complete freedom to create a notification workflow the way you want it, escalating alarms and/or filtering information to any number of recipients on any type of mobile device. Notifications can vary depending on alarm severity, whether or not an alarm is acknowledged, what date or time the alarm is occurring, and many other user-configurable attributes of the alarm context.
You can load work schedules into WIN-911 and send alarms based on who is “on shift” at the time of the alarm. Supports complex shift scheduling.
Alarm and events are displayed in interactive summary screens where users can acknowledge alarms or request more details. Works with Apple, Android, and BlackBerry smartphones or tablets.
Provides secure text based alarm notification over any cellular network. Alarm acknowledgements and reports are supported.
Email notifications allow for one- or two-way notifications and support alarm acknowledgements. Rich HTML or plain text templates support a wide range of devices.
Voice notification supports VoIP (no modem required) or analog phones (with USB or PCI card modems). Alarm information can also be requested during a call. Voice options are provided in all major languages. Has a text-to-speech engine that dynamically reads alarm tags. Also supports pre-recorded .wav files.
View and acknowledge alarms and view data reports using the wider screen of a web browser.
Uses TAP protocol to send alarms to pager devices.
View, sort, arrange and print your alarm history in any way you would like. Includes personnel notification attempts and confirmation, acknowledgements, events, and error codes. Each line may be annotated using the “Notes” feature.

Rich or plain text report templates are available. Reports can be sent on demand or according to a “rules based” system (e.g. a fixed schedule, based on alarm conditions, data values) to any device.
An additional WIN-911 copy can be installed on another server to
provide backup capabilities, should the primary server fail.
