Solution: Assisted Living Facility
CyberData’s SIP-enabled IP Paging devices provide a cost-effective way to implement IP based paging and event notification. Whether the scenario is a nursing care facility, a small office, or a medium to large sized manufacturing operation, with multiple locations requiring mass notification, utilizing CyberData’s IP paging technology as part of your overall solution will deliver sophisticated and innovative results in a cost-effective manner.
Here are some successfully implemented solutions based on real-life installations as recommended by CyberData. We are in the process of augmenting this page and expanding it to include more “Solution” stories, so if you have a story you’d like to share, we’d like to hear it!

An Assisted Living Facility with 25 rooms needs to provide instant communication between tenant and main office staff for safety/medical emergency situations. Announcements and two-way communication is also needed at various general/common areas such as the cafeteria, exercise room, pool and parking lot.
Through a SIP IP-PBX system, a user can pick up a handset and broadcast a message to the whole facility or to an individual zone.
We recommend Indoor Intercoms within each private room for each tenant. These will allow for instant two-way communication and quick response to normal and adverse communication requirements.
Keypad Intercoms at the entrance of the pool area will notify staff that someone has gone into the pool area and alert the on-site lifeguard.
Outdoor Intercom at the entrance of the facility, connected to an electronic relay and door strike, allows for both two-way communication and secure access.
Emergency Intercoms at all general locations, such as pool, exercise room and cafeteria call the main office directly to alert for a medical or physical emergency.
VoIP Ceiling Speakers (both with and without Clock Kits) in the cafeteria, exercise room, main office and each floor of the living quarters allow for the staff to play prerecorded announcements regarding activity start times, as well as general, live announcements for special events, or for paging staff.
The SIP Call Button can be placed at various points throughout the apartment hallways to signal various events. Pressing the button automatically makes a call to a pre-set phone number. When the number answers, the Call Button plays and repeats a stored audio file. This file is uploaded by the administrator to match the needs of the installed location.
To allow for paging in noisy environments, Loudspeaker Amplifiers with mini-horn loudspeakers or outdoor speakers can be placed at strategic points outside the building.
As SIP or MultiCast endpoints, CyberData VoIP products install seamlessly into an IP-based phone system or can be driven from a number of 3rd party paging and event notification software products supported by the CyberData endpoints.
