BarricAid is a patented device designed to protect classrooms in the event of an active shooter. The device is built to retrofit nearly any classroom door within a school. Each unit has its own direct cellular connection, allowing it to be controlled remotely and monitored in near real-time. Using an app on an authorized smartphone or computer, the devices are synchronized to allow every device to deploy simultaneously across the entire building or campus. The system only allows a BarricAid lock to deploy if the door to a classroom is closed. This approach allows students to seek shelter inside of a classroom, if doors are open; or to flee to the nearest exit, if not. The strength of the BarricAid is designed to restrict entry to the classroom while engaged.
Every second counts.
