Emergency Lockdown Panic Alarm System (ELPAS)
Critical Response in Extreme Threat
Emergency Lockdown Panic Alarm System was developed in response to recent trends in global security such as the escalating incidents of shootings and kidnap in public
buildings – schools, churches, hotels, etc. – necessitating a reinvention of the traditional system into a modern, smart, instant detection and response system.
The system is designed with simple manual triggers and a complex brain and should be operated only in high emergency. When in an elevated emergency (such as can result in death, serious injury, or heavy damage to property) an authorized person triggers the system using simple triggers – Panic Push Buttons or a pre-authorized Smartphone. This sends a high panic signal to the electronic control unit (brain).
Emergency Lockdown Panic Alarm System (ELPAS) is designed to act on your behalf and in the best interest of you and your visitors safety at the most critical
How it works
When the electronic control unit of ELPAS receives a trigger (from a digital or mechanical device or a smartphone), it instantaneously and simultaneously initiates a series of coordinated events:
1Local alarm sounders (siren / strobe light) are activated;
2All lifts / escalators, bollards and major doors are automatically locked down.
3A pre-recorded emergency ( active shooter ) message with instruction is played repeatedly over the public address system.
4All pre-programmed emergency response units (local and external) are notified via SMS, pre-recorded voice calls, emails, etc.
5Notify the building’s occupants of threat via an Active Shooter SMS to their mobile phones, with necessary safety instructions.
6Optionally, the power system can also shut off (immediately or after a set delay) if this is preevaluated as necessary.
7The system serves live videos of your premises to external emergency personnel over the web.
8ELPAS enters into a persistent notification mode, sending notifications continuously to emergency services until disabled.
9Lockdown, once initiated, is non reversible, except with appropriate token input by an authorized person.
ELPAS is very secure and scalable, allowing you to test it out over a small area and scale up afterwards. It delivers world-class security and integrates seamlessly into your existing security infrastructure and BMS.
If the locks in your large facility – e.g your guestroom door locks, offices or classrooms – are networked, then the lockdown may be extended to include all doors, etc.
Because the ELPAS is so intelligent and modular, you can easily extend its functionality to other emergency scenario such as fire and gas with entirely different or similar actions.
ELPAS can be customized to fit into your unique environment. Three default modes are available based on the severity of the threat:
