Why should I consider a Lockdown Solution for my School?
Lockdown or “evacuation” alerts that use sirens, alarm sounds or a fire alarm can be confusing for pupils and visitors If they mistake the sound played for an evacuation alarm, it may push them towards the threat. Both of our lockdown systems (ALAS and School Bell) give clear and precise alerts with vocal instructions where required.
The ALAS system is hard-wired throughout a school. It does not use IT systems, nor does it need wi-fi. Therefore, ALAS is not vulnerable to either your IT system or wi-fi experiencing downtime. This is crucial because Wi-fi can be affected by dead zones and interference. Obviously, this is not ideal in an emergency.
What is the difference between ALAS and School Bell?
School Bell offers much more than lockdown alerts. It is a fully customizable PA system that can also be used for classroom changes and other announcements. Unlike ALAS, School Bell also uses zones, so you can play messages in different areas at different times. Instead, ALAS transmits a message across the entire school, as is needed during lockdowns.
Which lockdown system is right for me?
If all you want from a system is lockdown message capabilities, ALAS will cover all your needs. But if you want to be able to use your system on other occasions, School Bell would be more suited.
