What you can expect
Voyent Alert! offers a number of advanced features that allow us to provide you with more informative and relevant communications.
Track Multiple Locations: Voyent Alert! allows you to create and track multiple locations such as “Kids School,” “Mom’s House,” “Office,” etc.. Any event or communication related to your tracked locations will be forward to you along your preferred communication channel.
Personalized Communications: Voyent Alert! allows us provide you with more informative communications. Critical information such as the distance, and direction from incident, time of intercept, and preferred evacuation routes from your tracked locations are provided. This additional context can be invaluable during a critical event and will allow you to make better, more informed decisions regarding your safety and that of your family.
An End to Irrelevant Notifications: With Voyent Alert’s smart alerting capabilities we can ensure that you will only get notified when a communication is relevant to you or one of the locations you are tracking. If we are advising of a street cleaning event on one side of the city and if it doesn’t impact you or your tracked locations you won’t hear from us.
Communications Your Way: Voyent Alert! provides its alerts over a wide variety of communication channels including mobile apps, text/SMS alerting, email or voice calling (coming soon). You can register for all or one of them.
Privacy is Paramount: Registration is totally anonymous, and no information, volunteered or derived is shared or used for marketing or data harvesting purposes. Locational information from your tracked locations is only used to determine its proximity to an alert event and to provide critical context within the communications (such as distance and direction).
Leaving is Easy: Both mobile applications and web-based accounts provide access to an unsubscribe feature accessed via the menu icon on the top right of the screen/page. If the service isn’t working out simply click on the “Unsubscribe” button and you won’t be hearing from us again.
