AMITYVILLE, N.Y., July 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- NAPCO Security Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: NSSC), one of the world's leading solutions providers and manufacturers of high tech electronic intrusion security, IoT connected home, video and fire systems, as well as enterprise-class access control and door locking products today announced that it has introduced a new wireless networked access lock, the Architech LocDown Wireless Access Lock, which offers a bright red strobe light that is illuminated upon activation.
This new school lockdown product is the latest addition to the already strong portfolio of products that NAPCO has to offer schools across the US. The use of a bright red strobe light on the inner door alerts the students and staff members that are sheltering in place that the door is secure from intruders. Thus, there is no need to approach the door to check the lock and risk being hit by random shots through the closed door. These new locks can be configured for use on a few doors or campus wide via 802.11 or ethernet. NAPCO has product solutions for every school in the US, regardless of their budget. The solutions start with the most basic application, which is a mechanical lock that allows for the teacher to lock the classroom from the inside and continues all the way to an enterprise platform which allows for a global lockdown of a university campus.
Currently in the US, the issue of school security and safety is something that needs to be addressed urgently. The US has over one hundred thousand K-12 schools, plus over ten thousand colleges and universities, with millions of students and teachers that need to be protected from the potential threats that exist today. The vast majority of schools in the US have little or no physical security in place to defend against events such as an active shooter.
Richard Soloway, CEO of NAPCO stated, "We are pleased to add another product offering to our school security portfolio. NAPCO is committed to developing new and innovative products for use in securing the schools and campuses all over the US. Offering the widest range of products so that any school, college or university can put in place a system to protect their students and faculty, is something that NAPCO is very proud to be able to provide."
