Emergency Alerting - scripted alerts with audio
Emergency Notifications / Alerts.
Ability to have a set of scripted notifications (with a sound) that can be triggered via either a local http GET or an API call to YoDeck.
eg "ALERT - Shelter in place", "FIRE - Prepare to evacuate" etc etc
We have started working on Emergency Alerts! This will be available on Dec 20th release. You will be able to specify different Alert Types and assign each screen with different Alerting content based on Alert Types. We will try to make it as simple as possible, yet powerful for the vast majority of cases.
After this is finished, we will be implementing CAP support (similar to EAS) for allowing integration with emergency broadcast systems, like Weather or hazard management systems. To do this, we will be requiring beta users, so:
To all campuses using Yodeck and having a CAP-enabled alerting platform, please reach out to test out our CAP support as we start development!
Actually, good thing would be create a show for different scenarios (e.g. Fire, alarm, or other trigger event) then when that event occurs using api calls, or other triggers, that show is displayed without someone having to manually trigger it.
Even better, for areas that have multiple monitors, you could have groups with monitors in them, (monitors should be able to be in multiple groups if needed) that way when a trigger is made, a show is displayed, you can tell the system which group of monitors to display it on (specific building, group of buildings, etc.)

we really need a API for that, to push alarm from our monitoring systems
Emergency push to all devices!

This would make me use and sell the software.
We are testing out Yodeck for displaying application monitoring information. If it was possible to send a trigger when an alert from the monitoring triggers to allow the Yodeck player to play a notification sound would be an awesome addition to the viability of using Yodeck.

Creating priority levels for shows. This way if you are using the screens in a building and a fire alarm sounds, you can have a show setup for fire alarms (with instructions) that you can quickly login, trigger it to play and once finished can have it revert back to your main screen.
