Building Safety Communications

For Tenant Communications, running fire drills, Managing Emergencies and H&S Compliance

Sentinel Building Safety Communications is a core tool for Building and Facilities Managers in managing incidents in medium and large multi-tenanted or mixed-use buildings.

Smaller teams can now manage complex buildings more efficiently and coordinate better with security teams and tenants.




Sentinel's platform helps Buildings and Facilities Management teams deliver tenant communications, improve building evacuations, host and distribute critical documents. Helping keep tenants safe while meeting legislation requirements including the Building Safety Act and future Terrorism (Protection of Premises) Bill (Martyn's Law).

Sentinel can be deployed for hundreds of different uses cases, here are some of the core ones:

Connect FM and Security Teams to improve incident response

Secure chat, video, and image-sharing tools help security teams to work in lock-step with FMs. These tools are simple-to-use and require little training.

In an incident, staff levels are often inadequate, Sentinel closes the gap by making communication immediate and simple. Security teams can share video and images with facilities managers to help assess the situation.

Communicate via private channels with tenants, FM & Security

Secure Chat lets tenants, FM and security teams communicate without contact details being shared.

Channels can be set up per tenant to help with reoccupation instructions of the building if dispersal evacuation is used. Localised Incidents can be discussed with only the tenants involved.

Facilitate fast & effective building evacuations during an emergency

Efficiently manage building evacuations with fire marshal communications confirming the floors are clear and the ability to check people have left the building.

Sentinel Building Safety Communications is designed to manage both assembly point and dispersal evacuations.

Easily host & share critical building documents for incident repsonse

All critical building documents can be uploaded with a click to be found and retrieved in seconds. In an emergency, this can be life-saving.

Tenants can access evacuation routes, and emergency services view building plans better tackle an incident.

Meet H&S standards to protect contractors & maintenance workers

Arriving contractors scan a QR code, in seconds FM/security staff can then message them in an incident with instructions. Visitor contacts are reset each day.

Following evacuations, FM staff can message the contractors when to return.

Minimise Tenant admin with our Import Wizard & Self-Registration systems

Tenants can decide who should be the contacts and self-register to receive set building communications.

Saving time and cost for facilities managers who would otherwise have to manually setup and manage these groups.
