The Wahsega Carina Event Manager Lite is a server appliance that comes in a small and power efficient package. Booting in less than 20 seconds, the Event Manager allows administrators to install, configure and manage every Wahsega device on the network.
The Event Manager Lite can handle up to 32 devices making it perfect for smaller installations or satellite campuses. Use it to upgrade firmware on all devices, schedule recurring events on the calendar, see reports on the health status of endpoints, send out emergency alerts, monitor IoT sensors and manage all of this through a single, intuitive dashboard.
With all these features, the Event Manager Lite uses 10x less power than any competing device available today. When connected to PoE switches that are on UPS backup, the Event Manager Lite and Wahsega endpoints will continue fully operating significantly longer than anything available in the market to ensure the message gets out when it is needed most.
The management dashboard of the Event Manager Lite is coming to the cloud soon giving administrators the ability to control their Carina deployment from anywhere. The Event Manager Lite was designed to be a hybrid system ensuring that it continues fully operating even during an internet outage.

The Wahsega Carina Event Manager Lite is a next-generation mass notification and IoT platform for many different types of buildings. Featuring an easy-to-use calendar scheduler, it incorporates live paging and announcements with audio, text and flashers in addition to sensors and relays for monitoring a variety of building systems. A member of Wahsega’s Carina family of products, the Event Manager Lite performs auto-discovery on Carina endpoints at startup and enables users to configure those endpoints individually or in bulk.
Used in conjunction with a SIP server such as our Carina PBX, standard IP phones can initiate live audio announcements from the Carina Event Manager Lite to paging zones throughout the building. For bells and announcements including audio and text, pre-recorded audio files stored in the Event Manager Lite can be sent to endpoints via a preconfigured calendar event, a SIP call or the click of a webpage button. In addition, IoT sensors can be connected to the Carina Sensor Interface Appliance to send out announcements when conditions trigger a relay closure.
With auto-discovery, bulk configuration and quick webpage setup, the Carina Event Manager Lite makes it easy to deploy a reliable building-wide announcement and monitoring system.
