What is a School Lockdown System?

Differentiating between a School Lockdown Procedure and a School Lockdown System is key to understanding the requirements necessary for a cohesive, effective solution. Where a Lockdown Procedure is defined as an established series of actions taken, a Lockdown System incorporates those actions and a variety of resources, technology & announcements used throughout the building, to greatly improve communication and access control measures are followed through.
A Lockdown System can be divided into two main components - Communication & Access Control...

Fully scalable, project-specific School Lockdown Systems

CIE AV Solutions provides a huge range of fully scalable, project-specific School Lockdown Systems, designed around the size and layout of your school, any existing infrastructure, risk levels and budget and - most importantly, designed to fully support the criteria of your written School Lockdown Procedure.
From a basic public address system to provide school-wide communication, to integration with bell timing systems, to a fully integrated communication, access control and surveillance system, we have the expertise, skills and product range to meet your individual Lockdown System requirements.

The following systems are simply examples of the scale and options available to provide improved communication and access control as part of your Dynamic Lockdown Procedure...
(Click on each diagram for a larger image)

• Public Address System  ('SCHOOL A' example)
A standard distributed audio (public address) system is perhaps the simplest solution to provide school-wide clear communication to all staff, students, visitors, etc.
It allows for immediate warning of Lockdown Procedure being engaged and for updates throughout the school as any situation reaches resolution.
School Lockdown System - Option A

• ‘One-button’ triggered Audio System
('SCHOOL B' example)
This example shows a Lockdown System and School Bell Timing System combined.
The Bell Timing System allows for pre-set bell or tones for class-change notification, as well as providing an alternative alarm, message or tone to warn of Lockdown Procedure being engaged.
This example features both microphone and ‘One-button’ Lockdown trigger, allowing for the Lockdown ‘alarm’ to be set-off using alternative sources.
School Lockdown System - Option B

• ‘Hybrid’ network audio System  ('SCHOOL C' example)
This ‘hybrid’ audio system example utilises both standard 100v line audio together with the latest network audio technology.
Such a system is often used to combine existing public address infrastructure with network building management systems such as CIE’s own ‘Core Control’ software system.
School Lockdown System - Option C

• Fully integrated Dynamic School Lockdown System  ('SCHOOL D' example)
The below example combines communication and access control devices over a standard network infrastructure, to provide a fully-integrated Dynamic School Lockdown System.
Featuring a combination of 100v line & network audio, door entry & intercom, standard IP telephone systems and CCTV, this example of an integrated Lockdown System not only offers multiple-layer Lockdown functionality, but can also be used for additional operations including class-change, door entry/access control, messaging and much more.
