The SHELTER system. Your versatile, scalable, smart solution for safety.
The harsh reality is that violent incidents like shootings are on the rise in schools, and in other public spaces too. And when they do there’s no time for delay—the average active shooting incident is over in minutes, before authorities can even arrive on the scene. The SHELTER™ lockdown system gives administrators a quick course of action to lockdown buildings, campuses, or zones with the click of a button. Because nothing saves lives like a swift response — or a locked door.
