Universities, colleges, school systems, sport complexes, and stadiums are faced with unique challenges when implementing a duress and mass notification system. In the event of an emergency, a large number of students, faculty, staff, and visitors need to be notified quickly and efficiently.  Some of the challenges they may face in deploying the system are budget constraints, poor cell reception and even difficulty wiring in historical buildings.  Also, installing Duress buttons in temporary classrooms are another area of concern, as well as Health Services dealing with student behavioral health issues.  All of these concerns can be resolved with the Lynx System.

Two important factors extra layers are needed are poor cell coverage and accessibility to alerts.  Simply by adding an integration with campus safety radios is huge step in adding an extra layer of protection.  Also, the ability to communicate alerts to local law enforcement quickly, or simplifying multi-level lockdowns when you have 40 or more buildings, all can be accomplished with the Lynx System Solution.  Do you want to learn how the Lynx System can add security to your campuses or facilities?
