In order to protect the safety of students, staff and visitors, an increasing number of educational establishments are implementing a ‘school lockdown procedure’ and using technology to issue pre-recorded messages that deter, warn and inform when a threat or danger has been identified.
In addition, many schools are also using this functionality to issue a pre-recorded ‘welcome’ messages so that visitors are greeted warmly as they into school buildings.
Should a threat or danger arise, the school lockdown system can be used to inform building occupants and issue instructions. The pre-recorded instructions can vary from messages that alert just staff of incidents, to issue covert messages that only staff understand so that pupils are not alarmed, and also for other recordings that provide more direct instructions such as asking them to return to their classroom or to evacuate the building.
The school lockdown system can also be used to deter loiterers outside of school hours who may be trespassing on school premises with intent to break in or commit acts of vandalism.
