BAY SHORE, NY – April 5, 2023 – IPVideo Corporation today announced that Security Sales & Integration has recognized its Sentry ERS Lockdown and Emergency Response System with a 2023 SSI Most Valuable Products (MVP) Awards at ISC West 2023. All entries were judged on innovation, functionality, competitive advantages, and benefits to the installer by industry leaders, along with the editors of SSI.
“2023 has been an amazing year as the security industry battled through supply chain issues and surging demand, yet the manufacturers responded with incredible ingenuity and perseverance,” says Jason Knott, Chief Content Officer for SSI, the leading trade publication for the electronic security industry. “End users rely on integrators to identify and install the right solutions to meet their needs. The MVP Awards recognize the companies that are developing these innovative technologies and elevating peace of mind.”
“This honor is especially meaningful as it is Sentry ERS’ first award and a symbol that our mission to help keep campus staff and first responders better equipped, protected, and prepared for active shooter situations and crises of all types is resonating,” said IPVideo Corporation President, David Antar. “Thank you to Security Sales & Integration for this important milestone.”
With Sentry ERS, an entire school lockdown protocol is initiated at the simple push of a button on the base unit. This includes door locks, PA announcements, and activation of strobe lights throughout a building. Additionally, audible lockdown messages are played from the unit, push notifications are sent out to security and administration, GPS location beacons are provided, police dispatch is notified, and live audio and video communication with first responders is automatically established to assess and address the critical situation. Each Sentry ERS unit ships with a dedicated mobile smartphone for those in distress to broadcast a secondary video stream and communicate with first responders live, providing all the latest real-time information at the scene.
Accurate and real-time information is paramount in active shooter situations. Sentry ERS is the only lockdown system providing comprehensive situational awareness in an emergency via video, two-way voice, text message and GPS location.
