The LifeGuard School Protection System consists of custom-engineered hardware and software elements, providing a classroom lockdown system and advanced web interface that runs on teacher and staff iPads, Macs, PCs and Smartphones throughout school grounds.
With LifeGuard’s one touch feature, teachers and staff can send a GPS-based 911 alert to other school employees, along with 100 "+" regional emergency personnel, government personnel, police, ambulance, fire, and 911 authorities. Immediately following the GPS-based message, 2-way audio/video communication and advanced text messaging (2,000 characters per text) between the classroom or school and key regional authorities is established over the LifeGuard interface. Concurrently, the alerting teacher is instructed to can deploy the simple-to-use LifeGuard Door Bar System – manually or automatically (in development) – to lockdown the classroom from entry.
"The innovative LifeGuard School Protection System will benefit everyone – from students, teachers, and staff, to emergency personnel – by combining a variety of key resources and cutting edge technology for defense and safety within minutes of a school emergency," says Jay Bekanich, company Spokesperson.
The LifeGuard dynamic web interface stores more than 18 points of critical information about the school, GPS-location of the teacher or staff member and the current crisis. This vital information is embedded in all video and each real-time message sent and received through the LifeGuard interface. All LifeGuard School Protection System activity is recorded and time-stamped, ensuring accountability.
“It is imperative for schools to have a school-wide lockdown and emergency communication system,” Bekanich continues. “The LifeGuard School Protection System can 'go live' within days or weeks, versus potential years through a hardware-only deployment. We will be seeking strategic partners to help cultivate and develop this 'win-win' solution that adds an additional layer of safety and security in today's education environment.".
