The Cygnus Lockdown alarm system has been developed primarily for the education market to protect and warn of an intruder or other critical event. The system comprises of a control panel and remote devices that connect to each other through a wireless mesh network. Alarm devices can be located in each teaching area, so when the alarm is activated the staff and pupils will follow the lockdown procedure. An alarm device also has a call point which can be activated by the staff member in any area just like a fire call point system.
The lockdown alarm control panel is an optional element to notify a responsible person of an active alarm, to quickly identify the location of the activation and alert the authorities.
The system can be interfaced with the premises public address system using a Cygnus Input/Output device.
Further features can be added such as GSM notifications using a Cygnus Fire panel (CYG1) and Autodialler (AUTODI03) which can communicate an emergency to 50 users.
