Sentinel FAQs

Do I need to install anything to use Sentinel?

No, there’s nothing you need to install. All you need to get started with Sentinel is a device, internet connection and web browser.

Sentinel is a cloud-based platform comprised of a series of communication, document management and reporting software modules.

The platform operates using a Software as a Service (SaaS) delivery model. Sentinel software is hosted centrally, with access to the software licensed on a subscription basis. So, there’s nothing to install locally, you access the platform's functionality using a web browser.

This makes Sentinel software available on demand. You don’t have to spend time and IT resources installing and configuring software on your server and desktop devices.

And you don’t need to worry about hardware restrictions. As long as you have an internet connection, you are ready to get started. You are also free from the burden of handling software updates, as this occurs centrally. This improves security by removing the risk of updates being ignored, where outdated and unpatched software can exist on individual employees' devices.

While there is no requirement to install any software to use Sentinel, mobile access to certain software modules is available via downloadable apps.

Sentinel apps offer an additional access channel to the platform for administrators and users. They also offer additional functionality which can include:

  • An additional channel to send emergency alerts to.
  • Joining a secure instant chat channel on your mobile device anytime anywhere.
  • Downloading documents and key contact details for offline access
