We realized that our technology could be used to help protect students and teachers in a classroom, so we designed a new version of our door lock specifically for schools.

Haven Lock, a security company based in Nashville Tennessee, is proud to announce Haven Lockdown, an integrated suite of locks that detects and prevents an active intrusion into a classroom. The system can be controlled at the touch of a button from a key fob, app, or dashboard enabling schools to lockdown instantly. Haven Lockdown was designed, engineered, and manufactured in Tennessee and is available in both a mechanical (Lockdown) and smart lock version (Lockdown Pro).

Haven Lockdown has a unique wedge design and door mount that enables it to last 10 times longer than a conventional lock against an intrusion attempt at the door. It is mounted directly on a classroom door and can be easily locked and unlocked, especially in case of an emergency. Lockdown is made of military grade components that were hand-selected for strength and longevity. The lock is able to absorb the force of an intrusion attempt by redistributing the energy across the door during an attack. Protecting the door against an active threat will give both teachers and students peace of mind.

Haven Lockdown can be controlled in a variety of ways. The lock can be controlled manually via a locking hand lever and unlocking pull cord. Lockdown Pro, the smart lock version, allows teachers or administrators to control the lock via a smartphone app, key fob, a computer dashboard, and a wall-mounted egress button. Haven Lockdown was built with the help of UniKey Technologies, the world's largest smart access control platform provider. UniKey led the development for the smart lock components of Lockdown Pro including the smartphone app, key fob, and FIPS 140-2 grade security.

“Haven Lock has been designing new door locks for the last four years. We realized that our technology could be used to help protect students and teachers in a classroom, so we designed a new version of our door lock specifically for schools. We want to make schools the safe places they should be for young people and educators” - Haven Lock CEO, Alex Bertelli

Haven Lock is also planning on releasing an access control system called Lockdown Pro HQ that will allow administrators to control an entire building or school campus from a single app. Lockdown Pro HQ will link different Lockdown locks into a single system allowing administrators to pinpoint an active threat and help keep their entire school safe. Lockdown is able to detect an intrusion attempt at the door and notify administrators and authorities quickly, which will drastically reduce the response time to the threat. The HQ integrated dashboard will be launching in Q3/Q4 2018.

Haven Lockdown is now available to order, and Haven Lockdown Pro HQ is available to reserve (limited availability) on http://www.havenlock.com
