BAY SHORE, NY – April 13, 2023 – IPVideo Corporation today announced that its Sentry ERS Lockdown & Emergency Response System, purpose-built for schools and campuses, has been named a two-time Govies Government Award winner by Security Today magazine. The awards, presented at ISC West 2023, include a Gold in the category of Fire & Life Safety and Platinum in Emergency Communication Systems. An independent panel of judges from the security industry selected the top entries in the 2023 categories and named Platinum and Gold winners using criteria including Features, Innovation, User Friendliness, Interoperability, Quality, Design, Market Opportunity, and Impact in the Security Industry, Technical Advances, and Scalability.
“To be recognized as a Govies Award winner in Fire & Life Safety and Emergency Communication Systems right at the launch of Sentry ERS is both a great achievement and reflection of the dire need for technology that delivers in critical instances when time equals life,” said David Antar, president at IPVideo Corporation. “This award recognizes the hard work our team has devoted to creating a solution to better equip first responders and staff with the tools they need to navigate through active shooter and other types of emergencies.”
“Every imaginable security solution can be found in a government application, whether it be federal or state facilities. I truly appreciate all those who have participated in The Govies 2023, and I am amazed at the technology and product improvements year over year,” said Ralph C. Jensen, publisher of Security Today magazine. “It is always enjoyable to engage with manufacturers and end users in the security industry. There is an excitement again, particularly after the pandemic, of what is happening in the security world, and what is possible.”
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.
