Software House, part of the Security Products business unit of Tyco, announced that it has entered into a strategic partnership with ELERTS Corp. to integrate the ELERTS Lock-It-Down (LID) mobile app with the C•CURE 9000 security and event management system. This integration provides users the ability to lockdown a facility from anywhere at any time with the touch of a button from an iPhone, iPad, or Android phone using Wi-Fi or cellular network coverage. LID activity, including “Shelter In Place” and “Evacuate” commands, are logged within C•CURE 9000 for further investigation.
The application is ideal for K-12 schools, universities, hospitals, and corporate campuses where an incident could require the facility to go into immediate lockdown mode. Authorized employees can quickly deploy the application across multiple buildings in a campus environment.
“We are delighted to partner with Software House,” said Ed English, CEO of ELERTS Corp. “Our technology aligns naturally as does our commitment to safety. School lockdowns occur on a daily basis and those locked in a room often have little information about what is going on. With ELERTS LID on their phones, teachers in lockdown can share real-time information with their peers and first responders.”
