This is the software that sends the audio stream to our servers
Simply send the audio to our servers, then we take care of the rest.
Using our software, the audio is uploaded. The software needs to be installed on a computer at location that has access to the audio you want to broadcast.
The audio is sent to our servers for processing, where it's scanned in real time for tones. If tones are detected, the clients are alerted.
Using the iFirePager app, smart devices are connected to our servers. Listen to live audio broadcasts in monitor mode, or switch to alert only mode to just get pages.
Android 8.1 - Beta version 1.0
The iFirePager app, is available for iPhone and iPad's running on iOS version 14.1 and higher
The iFirePager app, is available on Android devices running version 8.1 or higher
The iFirePager app, is available on computers running Windows 10 version 1903 and higher
The uploader software runs on the following Microsoft platforms:
The iFirePager service does everything a standard Fire Pager does, plus much more.
There are 2 parts the iFirePager service. The app which is used on a smart device, and the audio uploader software.
The audio uploader software, streams audio in real time to our servers. The tones are decoded using software running on our servers.
The tones are detected using software on our servers. The tones do not need to be known ahead of time to be detected. The audio stream is continually analyzed, and when a tone is broadcast, the detector decodes the tone.
If the decoded tones are in the proper 2-tone or long tone sequence, an alert is sent to the iFirePager app. Users who have subscribed to that feed, will receive an alert.
In the uploader software, when the audio level received is higher then the squelch level for 3 seconds, the audio stream begins. These first 3 seconds are stored, then sent up to the server when the broadcast starts. So no part of the transmission is lost.
After the broadcast starts, the uploader software will continually send the audio stream, until it detects 8 seconds of silence, then the stream stops.
In the iFirePager app, on your smart device, you can set up custom 'Feed Groups'. The feed groups are similar to radio channel banks. The feed groups hold 1 or more feeds (channels). You can create as many groups as needed. Then in the app, you select 1 of the groups to be the active group.
The channels in the selected group are scanned automatically, so you can listen to all the feeds in the group when in monitor mode. One of the feeds in the group can be set as priority.
If a tone is detected, an alert will sound (beep) then the audio from the alert is played. Alerts are always treated with priority, and will override all other feeds, including priority feeds.
In the app, on your smart device, all audio broadcasts that you have received, can be played back. This includes both alert audio, and non-alert audio.
When you respond to an alert, your position is marked on a map, along with all the other responders. During the alert, you can communicate with the other responders using text messages without leaving the map.
The audio is streamed in mono, using the opus codec at 48kHz 16-bit (fullband). The opus codec incorporates SILK which was designed specifically for voice communications, combining high quality voice audio with low bandwidth.
This is a real time app, all alerts and audio are streamed live, or as close to real time as possible.
Other similar alerting services wait until after the transmission has ended. Then they package the audio/alert into a bundle and send it to you. This causes unnecessary delays in receiving the alert and audio.
The delay will vary, so an exact number can't be given.
You do not need to know what the alert tones are to use the service. You simply broadcast the audio, then we do the rest.
Being on more than 1 department is not a problem. The app allows you to be a member of multiple departments.
Yes, you may apply, if it's on behalf of the Fire Department, and with the Department consent. If not, you should contact the person in charge and ask them to apply.
The Organization who uploads the audio, has full control over who may receive it.
Using our client uploader software, each organization may broadcast audio streams. Each stream is a dedicated channel of audio. The uploader software sends the audio from the source, to our servers.
In the app you create your own 'Feed Groups' with each group holding up to 25 channels. You may create as many feed groups as you want, so there is no limit to the number of channels you can listen to.
If you are with an Organization who wants to use the service, the next step is to apply.
The service is primarily designed to be used by Public Safety related Organizations (Fire Dept, EMS, First Responders, Hospitals, etc.).
While the app can be downloaded by anyone, only approved organizations can upload audio streams. To utilize most of the features of this app, users will need to be a member of an Organization.
The iFirePager service is designed to broadcast routine dispatch audio and alerts, to official responders.
The app is only available to Beta testers at this time. A limited number of Beta test slots are available.

If your Organization (Fire Dept, etc.) has not applied to use the iFirePager service, you should encourage them to do so. To utilize most of the features of this app, you will need to be a member of an Organization. While you can install the app on your own, many of the features will not work without being a member of a participating Organization.
Due to the nature of the internet and cell phone coverage, our service should be a supplement to, not a replacement for, your regular communications equipment. You should never rely solely on our service as your primary dispatch. You should rely on your agency issued equipment for your primary dispatch.
