Creating Safe-Smart campuses for schools by detecting threats faster, analyzing data smarter, and simplifying communications with an array of actions including mass alerts, two-way mobile messaging, 911 alerts, Evacuations, Lockdowns and parent communications – all from a single, intelligent platform.
The challenges that our schools face today almost defy the imagination. Twenty years ago, school administrators and leaders had a very different ‘never list’; You know, those things you hope never happen. A fire. A bus accident to or from some event. A bomb threat.
Today, that list is decidedly more frightening. It begins with an active shooter – likely a current or former student who knows the campus well, knows how to get in and out.
Today, that list includes ever-changing weather such as tornadoes (over 1,500 in the United States in 2019), hurricanes (29 named storms and hurricanes in the U.S. in 2019), snow storms and bomb cyclones.
Today, that list includes sudden outbreaks of disease that turns into pandemics that shut schools down for months, requiring new protocols, new schedules, new layouts in school buildings.
Fortunately, Quicklert has a solution for each and every one of these threats – and more. Solutions that don’t start with sending out alerts when something goes wrong. QBOX devices use artificial intelligence and machine learning to detect threats before they become incidents! The Quicklert Intelligent Alerts Management Platform includes powerful integrations that tie into the national weather service, so that weather alerts are not dependent on a human being taking action. And finally, these solutions are embedded inside the daily processes of every school. So the Cal Scheduler for bells becomes an emergency response tool. The Exit signs and Stairwell signs become emergency detection devices. Clocks, signage devices, speakers – used for bells, information displays and announcements – all become tools to detect, react and respond to emergency situations, with QBOX Ceiling and QBOX Touch devices.
