Depending on what type of pager you have, MISSION
offers several different formats for the alarm notification
|Numeric: You will receive a numeric
message that looks like:
877-991-1911 * 12345
call the toll-free automated messaging center and
enter the five digit event code. You will hear
the site, alarm description, and other pertinent
site data, and be given an opportunity to
acknowledge the alarm (or be told that someone else
has already accepted it).
The number is easy to remember -- with different punctuation it's 1-877-9-911-911.
Alphanumeric: The text message will
indicate the site, alarm, time of the alarm, and
other site info. There are several formats
from which to choose, ranging from very brief to
quite detailed -- you can select which type you
receive right from the website based on the maximum
length message your pager carrier allows.
|Two-way pager: The text message you
receive can be selected just like for the
alphanumeric case. If the recipient responds
to the message with a simple "OK" reply, the message
will be acknowledged, without having to phone in to
the message center.
|Cellular Phone: Many people now carry a
cell phone. Most can also be
used as a pager for receiving (and sending) short
text messages. If your phone has this
capability, it is another method MISSION can use to
get the alarm message to you. Simply let us
know its email address
(email@example.com for example), or phone
number and wireless carrier, and we'll take it from
there. As with the two-way pager, you can also
reply to the text message with an "OK" and we'll
cancel the callouts for that alarm.
MISSION notifies them all!
