Campus Shield™ is the most reliable and effective system for reducing the time it takes to respond to a campus emergency. If you want to make your K12, college or university, healthcare, or corporate campus the safest it can be, use Campus Shield™.
What makes Campus Shield™ superior to every other panic button system on the market?
Dependable & Proven Technology
The backbone of the system is Radio Frequency (RF) technology, which is the same technology first responders use to communicate. It works under any and all conditions.
Simple & Easy to Use
Alerts are activated with a single press of a small hand-held device called a PAL (Personal Alarm Locator), similar in size to a key fob. Using Campus Shield’s™ proprietary software, PALs are assigned to specific individuals so first responders know who they are looking for.
Location, Location, Location
Once emergency personnel know someone is in distress, they need to know where they are. Campus Shield™ provides accurate location information in multi-story buildings, large outdoor areas, parking garages, and underground areas. With Campus Shield™, there are no dead-zones.
WHAT IS CAMPUS SHIELD?
It is a radio-frequency based panic button system that allows teachers, staff, and other school personnel to quickly and easily alert first responders to an emergency on campus. It works indoors and out. There are no dead zones and it provides reliable location information whether the person in distress is in a basement, first floor classroom or third floor bathroom. The PAL (personal alarm locator) travels with individuals on a lanyard or in a pocket, eliminating the need for fixed, hard wired panic buttons many people are familiar with.
how it works
The system is activated by a small, handheld device called a PAL (personal alarm locator). PAL activation is simple and discrete. People typically keep their PAL in a pocket or on a lanyard. When a PAL is handed out, the holder’s profile information is associated to that PAL and entered into a secure database.
Once pressed, a PAL emits a 310mhz signal that is picked up by a network of indoor and outdoor radio frequency receivers. In seconds, that signal sounds an alert at our head-end (police dispatch or other campus security office).
Monitors at the head-end display a picture of the PAL holder and profile information as well as the location of the emergency. If the PAL holder moves during activation, their location updates automatically.
Campus Shield is the fastest most reliable way to mobilize a response to a campus emergency.
A Campus Shield™ system includes:
- PALs (Personal Alarm Locator)
- An array of RF receivers and components specifically designed to meet customer’s unique coverage requirements
- A Head-End which typically sits in campus safety or local police dispatch
- An Administrative System so that the PAL holder database can be maintained and updated as needed by the customer.
- An optional Alert Station that functions similar to the Head-End.
