EAS equipment maker Sage Alerting Systems has announced a firmware upgrade for its ENDEC Model 3644. It adds that this only applies to users in the United States.
And why is that? Because the heart of the upgrade, #89-32, is adding Blue Alert functionality. Blue Alerts are warnings about police that may be in trouble or are issuing a related emergency message. They are currently voluntary.
Sage has provided release notes here.
The company adds, “The release notes also address a check that you will need to perform if you have used the old “new event” option in the settings file.”
