Madison Heights, MI, May 18, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- Cochrane Tech Services, a provider of training, support, and software development for building automation systems, announced the launch of its all-new Smart Building Notification App, Raven.
Raven's cloud-based Smart Building Notification Service allows you to send alarms and alerts from the Niagara Framework (or other third-party data sources) to a Raven Server, which then sends push notifications to your iOS or Android device via the Raven App.
Currently the only way of getting building notifications is through email, text message, or a graphical user interface. By receiving a building alert via push notification, an occupant or facility manager doesn't have to be in an app or using their mobile device to receive an announcement. They can see pertinent operational details of interest to them in real-time, with a quick glance at their home screen to be instantly aware and to make a decision on how to quickly take action (if one is required).
"Using Raven, all building occupants and facility managers can be simultaneously and instantly made aware of occurrences in a facility or organization, regardless of what they're doing and where," says Scott Cochrane, President and CEO of Cochrane Tech Services. "This allows building managers, facility managers, and/or occupants to react immediately - making the building safer, more secure, and more efficient. And creating real value for the people within it."
Innovative features of Raven include:
-Notifications can be configured to send hyperlinks to actionable websites
-An administrative portal to create users and groups and control which notifications they receive
-A secure connection sends push-only data and never connects back to its sources
-A Raven Niagara 4 Connector that sends alarms and custom-configured notifications from the Niagara Framework to mobile devices
-An Open REST API that allows the development of connectors from third-party sources
-The option to mute notification classes to stop push notifications but still see the info in-app
The Raven Smart Building Notification Service is available now through Cochrane Supply & Engineering. For more details, including an informational brochure or to schedule a demo, please visit http://www.ctsraven.com.
