Saving Lives Through Technology for over 20 Years
Proud to have been saving lives through technology for over 20 years
The Alerter Group story started in 1988, with the inception of our first product, Deaf Alerter. Our small team had with one thing in mind; saving lives through technology.
We are now proud to be installed in thousands of buildings up and down the UK, helping millions of disabled people in the process. Our Refuge Alerter and Deaf Alerter products are now market-leading solutions, using innovative, cutting-edge technology.
