Resident Alert

Hello! In this Alosant™ Product Highlight, we cover the features utilized with a Resident Alert.

A Resident Alert uses automated communication features to send important messages to a resident via Push Notification or Announcement. Push Notification is an interactive tool that lets you choose the target audience and customize where a resident is taken when the Push Notification is clicked. Use Push Notification during an emergency, last-minute event change, or as a friendly reminder. The Announcement feature alerts residents of urgent matters as soon as they open the app to ensure no one misses the most important details.


To highlight the most commonly used features for a Resident Alert, we split them up into four simple sections.

  1. Scenario
  2. Solution
  3. How You Set it Up
  4. How it Works for Your Resident

Scenario: Remind a resident to purchase their ticket for the upcoming rodeo.
