Campus Safety Solutions
Door Locking Systems / Access Control
Secure access to your facility with an automatic door lock system. Control interior and exterior door locks remotely through computers, tablets or smart phones. Easily modify schedules and customize user access.
Instant Lockdown - Initiate an immediate lockdown of all school doors with a touch of a button and get alerted right away if any doors are not able to be locked.
Silent Panic Alert Technology
Alert authorities instantly in case of a school emergency or threat like an active shooter. Initiate a silent alarm with the touch of a mounted button or from a computer, tablet or smart phone. Works hand-in-hand with access control to ensure the children are safe and the facility is secure.
School Security Cameras
Monitor the interior and exterior of the school building 24/7. Preserve a record of visitors and events that's easily searchable and can be quickly sent to the authorities. Review altercations to determine a course of action. Use cameras as part of an intercom system to allow or block access to the campus. School security cameras provide a vital, comprehensive awareness of the entire campus at all times.
