School Lockdown Systems

Nothing is more important than the safety of your students and staff

Here at Valcom Support Services we have several solutions to fit any requirement you may have for an Emergency Notification and School Lockdown System. If your site already has a Cisco phone system then all you might need is the SingleWire InformaCast software licence to enable notification and lockdown system features.

Alternatively, we have lockdown systems that aren’t dependant on existing hardware that can offer the same functionality.

Schools and academies can face several threats from intruders or emergency situations that may require a school lockdown, evacuation or at least a warning.

The primary purpose of our emergency lockdown systems are to remove your students and staff from any kind of potential danger during an emergency situation.

Emergency School Lockdown Systems

Our entry level school lockdown systems allow you play pre-recorded messages or tones through speakers installed around your school or academy. You can define up to seven different messages to signal different situations that may instigate a lockdown procedure. Using our own software, the alert can be played on a continous loop or for a predefined duration.

We have a choice of wall speakers, ceiling speakers, external horn speaker or lay-in speakers. All of our speakers utilise existing CAT 3, CAT 5 or CAT 6 cabling therefore installation is easy and fast. You also have the option to add live paging to the system.

We offer an installation service, or you can self install with our full support, get in touch to find out more.
