Weather Decision Technologies, Inc. (WDT) is displaying a powerful package of advanced EAS and weather alerting services at the International Security Conference and Exposition (ISC West) tradeshow taking place in Las Vegas, April 1-3, 2009.
WDT’s NOTUS Emergency and Weather Alerting Service offers the opportunity for security companies to enhance recurring monthly revenue (RMR) opportunities by connecting their customers to timely emergency weather and other safety alerts, when they need them the most. NOTUS is a white-label, brandable product, requiring no hardware or software to be installed by the security company.
NOTUS was designed specifically for the United States’ safety and security industry and provides for the first time a security industry capability designed to enhance standard internal security information, such as break-ins, with threat detection and alerting of external threats from areas beyond the confines of residential homes and business premises. WDT is demonstrating the addition of Emergency Alert System (EAS) events to their leading NOTUS alerting capability, which provides government safety warnings for customer locations, including such warnings as Amber Alerts, Hazardous Material Incidents, Fires and much more.
The innovative NOTUS service provides an easy-to-use platform for any security company’s customers. Using a combination of local geo-located weather data, precise National Weather Service, EAS, and WDT Proprietary alerts for each location, and interactive weather maps, customers receive an all-in-one package. Additionally, NOTUS forecasts are delivered daily, creating positive, branded interactions via Internet and mobile connections, between customers and their security system providers. The WDT system provides the following key benefits for security companies:
• A system that boosts customer retention and brand awareness;
• A marketing platform that creates daily positive interactions with your customers;
• A method to improve customer risk assessments with daily weather conditions and alerts;
• A value-added service to increase loyalty and RMR with no hardware costs.
“With NOTUS, we are bringing a new and innovative way for security companies to touch their consumers’ lives directly, with highly relevant weather, safety and security data,” said Mike Eilts, CEO of WDT.
“NOTUS offers security companies their own branded weather, safety and security service,” said Frank Ryan, Director of Creative Sales Solutions. “WDT’s alerting service is a superior brand loyalty-builder and a premium marketing tool, reducing churn and adding value at the same time.”
