Several reasons Campus Shield may be ideal for your campus:
- Our system does not use cellular or other wireless networks which are unstable and not suitable for life/safety applications.
- Campus Shield™ delivers location information more reliably and accurately than any GPS based system, which is vital when operating in multi-story buildings or structures.
- There are no dead-zones.
- Activation is one-touch, discrete. No fumbling with smartphone buttons or finger swipes
WHAT IS CAMPUS SHIELD and how does it work?
Campus Shield is a radio-frequency (RF) technology panic button system that allows individuals to instantly and easily alert first responders to an emergency anywhere on campus. The key-fob sized panic button or PAL (personal alarm locator) travels with individuals on a lanyard or in a pocket. It works indoors and out. There are no dead zones, and it provides accurate location information whether the person in distress is in a basement, first floor classroom or third floor bathroom.
The system is activated by pressing a small, handheld device called a PAL. PAL activation is simple and discrete. People typically keep their PAL in a pocket or on a lanyard. Each PAL is assigned to a specific user, allowing first responders to identify the individual in distress.
Once a PAL is pressed, monitors at the head-end display a picture of the PAL holder, profile information, as well as the location of the emergency. If the PAL holder moves during activation, their location updates automatically at the head-end.
