We are also using Sielox’s Class™ Crisis Lockdown Alert Status System–designed to reduce the time it takes for response and featuring many different avenues of communication and alerts. These systems adds a substantial layer of protection for students, administration and visitors without compromising the aesthetics and comfort of the school and the ability to move around the facility unencumbered.

In addition, early warning and automatic detection systems can minimize confusion and human error when catastrophic situations occur. Guardian detects gunshots and triggers access control system lock down within the school facility, providing other immediate and automatic real-time information via chat, email alerts and instant visibility of compromised locations with dynamic floor plans.
