Keeping Schools Safe: Integrated Security K-12
Currently the majority of schools are using manual methods of entry and this can be a point of breach in security. It is estimated that 48% of schools use a manual emergency lock-down. Since the recent number of school shootings, active shooter drills have been required by public schools nationwide. In real life, a majority of active shooter incidents are over in less than 5 minutes and schools equipped with access control systems can shut down access in a fraction of that time.
