Bodet's Lockdown Alert System

Cybersecurity News Netsilon NTP Time Server

Never has it been more essential for education, medical or industrial facilities and organisations to have a reliable Lockdown Alert System in place to protect people should an emergency event happen.

By choosing Bodet’s Dynamic Lockdown Alert System, you can be sure that every person on your premises will receive your emergency message. Alerts can be broadcasted across extended campuses, multiple-floor buildings and complexes simultaneously, allowing staff, students, residents and visitors to react accordingly.

Our flexible lockdown alert system allows you to broadcast a fully tailored lockdown alert across your whole premises with a single touch of a button. When used as part of your emergency response policy, our lockdown alert system will help ensure that everyone you are responsible for knows precisely how to respond and what to do during an emergency.

Why do schools need a lockdown alert system?

Schools and educational establishments are required to cover all foreseeable major incidents that place staff, students and other school premises users at risk. Due to the random nature of unexpected emergency events, there is little that can be done to prevent them.

School emergency plans must outline actions to be taken during a major incident to help save lives and minimise risk. The emergency plan must be part of the educational establishment's risk assessment.

Lockdowns can be triggered by several emergency events, including:
  • Bomb threats
  • Electrical faults
  • Extremes of temperature
  • Fire breakout
  • Flooding
  • Gas leaks
  • Intruders on school property
  • Medical emergencies
  • Violence in schools

It is essential that all staff and students, with the exception of reception-age children, must be able to recognise school emergency alarm signals and understand how to react. It can lead to a tremendous amount of confusion should a school rely on using the same bell system to notify of class changes as well as emergency events.
The government also recommends that schools operate a distinctly different lockdown alarm to prevent issues such as school children streaming out of classrooms to gather at fire assembly points when an intruder is on the premises.

Bodet offers the Melodys Lockdown Pack, which is designed for primary schools and smaller educational facilities, as an off-the-shelf Lockdown Alert Solution. It is easy to configure and consists of an internal sounder, an external sounder, and a four-button control panel to trigger lockdown alerts.

Why do businesses and other facilities need lockdown alert systems?

Anyone with responsibilities for the protection of people within a business or organisation from a range of risks must have a range of detailed health, safety and emergency policies in place. This includes emergency events such as threats from intruders that call for an 'invacuation' or lockdown of the premises to protect staff, contractors and visitors from risk.
The government recommend that businesses and organisations have an Emergency Response Plan that uses 'deter, detect, delay' principles. This aims to minimise the risk of injuries and fatalities during an emergency event. This plan should include evacuation and invacuation lockdown procedures where you decide on the appropriate response for your occupants.
Emergency events which could trigger a full or partial lockdown:
  • Dangerous animal roaming loose
  • Incident or disturbance in the local community
  • Intruders on site or in the vicinity with the potential to pose a risk
  • Major fire in the vicinity
  • Warning of air pollution or chemical spill
If the threat or risk is external, you may decide it would be safer for your occupants to stay indoors, effectively calling for an invacuation or lockdown of your premises. Having a clear and separate lockdown alert system will enable your staff, contractors and any visitors on your premises to follow correct procedures and avoid any confusion that could lead to them putting themselves at risk.

Bodet's Dynamic Lockdown Solution

Bodet has created a Dynamic Lockdown Solution which broadcasts a unique emergency lockdown alert. The system contains a combination of trigger methods such as a wired multi-button control panel, wireless remote control, GSM signal or mobile/PC application which can broadcast emergency alerts, such as a lockdown, evacuation and panic alarm.
In an emergency, our Dynamic Lockdown Solution enables specific alarms to be broadcast across your entire site, regardless of whether you have a multiple-floor building or a number of stand-alone buildings across a site. This way, everyone knows what is happening and what action to take.
You can broadcast a unique lockdown alert, separate from your fire alarm, class changeover bells, shift change alerts etc. Depending on your needs, you can also choose the most appropriate triggering method for your system – wired or remote, or a combination of both.

Flexible options

If your alert system is in need of an upgrade or complete overhaul, it is worth considering incorporating Bodet's Lockdown Alert Solution with our Harmonys, a 5-in-1 Bell System. Our Harmonys system includes Class Changeover or Shift Change alerts, Synchronised Clock, PA, music, and radio streaming functionality.
