What is BGEMS?

BGEMS, or the Business and Government Emergency Management & Security system, is made up of features of MessageNet Connections to meet the unique needs of organizations in the businessgovernment fields.

How Does it Work?

A typical BGEMS integration is affordable, quick to install, and easy to use because the Connections platform it uses is designed to connect and work with technologies that are already deployed while leaving the system open to later additions. BGEMS can be used to enhance safety and security, to facilitate mass notification, and for daily announcements.

Daily & Emergency Use

BGEMS is designed to meet both the daily and emergency needs of any organization. Because the system is used for emergency and daily communications, it’s used every day, making it easier and faster for staff to send out notifications in the event of an emergency, saving more lives.

Maximize your ROI by providing multi-user daily and emergency communication


Mass Communication

Messages can be sent out to large numbers of pagers, phones, email addresses, and computer pop-ups at one time.

LCD/HDTV Screens

LCD screens can be used to display videos, images, PowerPoint presentations and can actually be used as audio/visual PA devices in an emergency, as well as providing way-finding and emergency egress information.


MessageNet connects to cameras as well as surveillance systems already in place, to record and even to broadcast the data to computers or LCD screens. Recording and surveillance systems are unified unified as well.

PA Integration

BGEMS allows users to speak live, play a pre-recorded message, or use text-to-speech over your PA or giant voice system from anywhere. All PA messages, even speak-live messages, are stored for future accountability and replay.


Audio/Visual PA

PoE signs can be used as both audio PA and visual PA devices, providing a written version of a spoken message. These signs feature LED scrolling text, high-intensity flashers, input/output contact closures, and text-to-speech capabilities with speakers for ADA-compliance.

Scrolling LED Indoor and Outdoor Signs

LED signs can display and scroll text announcements with controllable speed.

Computer Pop-up Instant Messaging

Highly visible scrolling messages can be sent directly to any network-connected PC or Mac and pop through all other active programs and non-password-protected screen-savers.

Text Messaging & Paging

Messages can be sent out to any number or combination of mobile phones, pagers and other text-messaging devices, alerting all staff, specific groups, or even just a single person.

Fire Panel Integration

BGEMS can integrate with existing fire panels to send alert messages based on customizable criteria that is configured in the system.

Panic Buttons

Panic buttons can be placed in offices or in any area elsewhere in the organization, instantly alerting staff and emergency responders of any situation.

BGEMS integrates with these and other types of input devices to issue alerts of intruders or other unauthorized personnel.
