It employs an emergency lockdown button that is particularly effective in safeguarding school buildings during active shooter scenarios.

Initiating a lockdown has various options. A school or organization can choose to install emergency lockdown buttons on walls, use mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets, or utilize hardwired emergency buttons and IP phone hotkeys.

The One Button Lockdown Security System can be integrated with existing access control and surveillance camera systems, and offers a range of lockdown actions including exterior and classroom doors locking automatically, disabling card access except for first responders, and strobes lighting up both inside and outside. The system can also send out automatic email and text messages, and disable visitor intercoms.
