Global Security Systems' ALERT FM system to interface with NextRadio App to provide emergency notification to users
LAS VEGAS- NAB RADIO SHOW (PRWEB) APRIL 20, 2016 Global Security Systems, LLC (GSS) announced today that they have partnered with NextRadio. The NextRadio app team will review ways to interconnect with GSS’s ALERT FM emergency notification system to provide users with federal, state, and/or local information during the event of a man-made or natural disaster. This new feature is scheduled to be available to NextRadio users later this year.
“We are pleased to offer ALERT FM emergency information to our NextRadio users later this year,” said Paul Brenner, President NextRadio. “NextRadio recognizes that the NAB broadcasters and U.S. Citizens will benefit from the marriage of live local radio with life-saving alerts.”
ALERT FM provides federal, state, and/ or local emergency information to citizens using the Radio Data System (“RDS”) of local FM radio stations. Citizens can receive this information on ALERT FM receivers or any device including cellphones equipped with an FM-chip and the proper software. ALERT FM has the capability to keep users informed even when the power is out or cellular service is down.
NextRadio is an app that turns your Android smartphone into a portable FM radio. It uses the embedded FM-chip in the smartphone to allow users to listen to local FM radio without using cellular data or the internet. NextRadio combines traditional broadcast radio with modern technology to provide an interactive listening experience.
“NextRadio will act as a software connection between the FM radio receiver in the cellphone and the ALERT FM system,” said Robert L. Adams, GSS President and CEO.
