Even if you aren’t actively monitoring the weather, our alerts will proactively notify you:
I've been clearing the golf course for 17 years, and I can't tell you how many times I've had to go out on the golf course and beg people to come off and they still stay out there when severe weather is
imminent. Since we've had the horn, I have not had that conversation.

I think the Outdoor Alerting System is something necessary for every school. There's not much that parents value more than the safety of their children and a tremendous part of what we try to provide each and every day is the safety and security of our students.Mr. Sanelli

For Cape Coral residents and Floridians in general, lightning and severe weather is always a threat, which means that we need to go above and beyond to help protect residents by leveraging the most proven, advanced lightning detection and alerting technology available. With OAS installed at many of our public parks, we can ensure that public safety remains our priority.Art Avellino

The horn alerting takes the onus off staff to inform visitors to seek shelter. During a game, everyone is looking down and not up at the skies at the weather. Parents are watching their kids, referees are watching the game, and players are keeping their eye on the ball - and no one wants the game to be interrupted. But people respect the horn and the technology.Trish Heffelfinger

Maryland Soccerplex relies on lightning and severe weather alerting system to keep athletes safe
The Maryland SoccerPlex in Boyds, MD is one of nation’s premier soccer facilities. Located within the South Germantown Recreational Park in the suburbs of Washington, DC, the 160 acre complexincludes the 64,000 square-foot indoor Discovery Sports Center, 22 immaculately groomed outdoor soccer fields, a championship outdoor stadium with seating for more than 3,000, and three lighted, synthetic turf fields.
Due to the size of the complex and limited staff, going field to field was no longer a safe and efficient method for operations to notify officials, players and parents of impending severe weather.
A trusted lightning detection and severe weather notification system made up of a comprehensive suite of weather sensors and tools designed to detect severe weather, alert visitors when severe weather is imminent and allow operations staff to prepare field conditions before and after the storm.
When Hurricane Irene threatened the fields just a few weeks after installation, the new horns sounded and alerted visitors of incoming danger. As the storms moved through the area, staff used custom views in their weather visualization tool to monitor approaching lightning and storm cells. Automatic alerts to mobile devices helped staff clear the area, cancel the games, and keep everyone safe.
