Risk Assessment Diagram
"Let's not create a scene - actually, let's do!"
A scene starts from a Risk Matrix. Here you define all the risks you can imagine and plot them dependent on the severity to your business. Each will then require a paper plan - a descriptive document that describes what to do at each stage - This is your scene.

The scene is used to describe to engineers how to use the API to build that plan into something tangible - a Profile.

Let's look at some examples.
Motor Accident involving company car (scene can be expanded as necessary)

Your plan could be
  • Check Injury Status of People - Open new Profile for each person.
  • Inform Insurance Company.
  • Check driver has gathered images and details of all those involved. Upload if necessary using vehicle operator app.

Fire Alarm has activated

Your plan could be
  • Set Audio Warning for Zone of Building affected - Auto.
  • Set Warning to be ready for evacuation from Zone adjacent - Auto.
  • After investigation confirm with Fire Authority that alarm activated and that response is or is not required.
"It's not uncommon for a Scene to have over one hundred different actions. Merlin can call people; it sends documents and texts, switches devices, locks and unlocks doors and intelligently forks to a different scene if it detects it should. We haven't yet found a limit.
Merlin is a fantastic tool for business and organisations."
