Last Sunday I was at this theatre watching a movie and all of a sudden the lights went out. Pitch dark, even the damn emergency exit sign on the doors quit working. Although it wasn’t an emergency situation, just a normal power trip, I dread to imagine what would have happened if we really needed to evacuate. Scenes like this sound horrifying, but you do need a reliable system to sound out directions or visually guide you through. The Compass Alert System is one such aid that plays an audio track and indicates the direction you should be heading towards. In this day and age, public spaces that have complex architecture need something that is comprehensive and informative at one go.
