To meet the demanding physical security needs of the education, healthcare and regional government markets in the Northeast region of the U.S., Sielox teamed up with CM3 Building Solutions of Fort Washington, Pa. Sielox’s Pinnacle Access Control System and CLASS (Crisis Lockdown Alert Status System) software solution will complement CM3’s security platform offering to enable schools and other semi-public facilities to have a safer and more secure environment.

“CM3 is widely recognized throughout the industry for delivering the highest levels of service and outstanding customer experiences to this very challenging market segment while growing at such an incredible pace,” said Sielox President and CEO, Karen Evans. “Lockdown alert level and physical electronic locking of perimeter and interior doors from Sielox are the most comprehensive safeguard in the security marketplace today. Our facility alert and physical lockdown capabilities are what CM3 clients are asking for. They are an ideal long-term integrator partner and we look forward to providing these high-demand solutions.”

In addition to Sielox’s Pinnacle Access Control System, 32-bit controllers, readers, proximity access control cards and devices, CM3 will also offer Sielox’s CLASS Crisis Lockdown Alert Status System. Designed for use in the K-12 and higher education environment, CLASS provides real-time classroom status, updates and notifications to administrators and first responders through the use of graphical maps, email and text messaging to assist in making split-second decisions.
