Security Products, Security Film by School Shield Security FilmSecurity Film
By School Shield Security Film

School Shield Security Film’s security film, which ranges from eight to 21 millimeters in thickness, can be installed and anchored on existing doors and windows, making those glass surfaces virtually impenetrable. The film is meant to withstand forced entry via gunshots and other weapons (baseball bats, bricks, crowbars, etc.) and gives schools time to implement lockdown procedures and alert authorities in the event of an active shooter situation.

Though the security film is not bulletproof, it does make glass splash-proof, meaning that shattered glass will not penetrate the film. Security film creates a significant barrier to forced entry by a potential bad actor and is a lower-cost alternative to bulletproof glass. Unlike bulletproof glass, installing security film is a simple retrofitting process that does not require removal or replacement of existing glass doors and windows.

Visitor Aware By Singlewire Software Visitor Aware
By Singlewire Software

Singlewire Software acquired Visitor Aware, a robust tool for visitor and student management. Visitor Aware provides schools and other organizations with the tools to screen visitors so they can identify threats before unwanted guests gain access to sensitive areas. Visitors have their IDs scanned when they enter a building. That information is used in conjunction with encrypted facial recognition to screen visitors against national sex offender and government watchlists and active legal injunctions. Potential issues are flagged to prevent guests from further entering a building, and approved guests are given a printed pass so they can proceed.

Visitor Aware also offers tools for volunteer management, tardiness tracking, secure student release and pick-up, rostering and reunification, and setting up a tip line for potential threats.

Door Light
By The Heads Up Lock Company

The Heads Up Lock Company introduced indicator signs/locks to show occupancy from a distance. It can be seen up to 300 ft. away. But more importantly, it allows increased critical information to faculty, law enforcement, and emergency crews. It provides schools with added safety if first responders need immediate information regarding the status of a room’s occupancy in real time.

Security Products, Door Light By The Heads Up Lock CompanyIt consists of a smart deadbolt lock that electronically gives awareness to folks outside if a room is locked or unlocked. If the light is red, the room is locked. If the light is green, it is unlocked. It needs no maintenance after installation. If the power is lost, it will automatically re-set itself when the power comes back on. The patented and affordable device can be installed by any qualified handyman.

Aside from the safety aspect, there are other benefits to installing the Heads Up Lock, such as the added convenience to faculty and staff of knowing if single-stall restrooms are occupied.
