Saving Lives Through Technology for over 20 Years

Our History

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. A small teamed with one thing in mind, saving lives through technology.

A lot has changed since then, and we are 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.
