While effective security starts with the exterior doors into a building, securing the outside perimeter alone is no longer sufficient.

The safest place to be in an active shooter incident is behind a locked door, so today it's an absolute necessity to have an interior security solution that can secure the safe spaces inside a building. BEST SHELTER is that solution. BEST SHELTER is a responsive lockdown product specifically designed for K-12 and commercial environments. It is a unique combination of code-compliant hardware and proven technology that are configured to fit a specific building and security protocol. Learn more

Gateway & Repeater

At the core of the SHELTER system is a gateway that sends signals to each door lock to initiate lockdown. With a 400-foot range, the gateway can be paired with up to eight repeaters to extend the signal range throughout a building. And with assistance from your integration resource, the SHELTER repeater can be connected to existing access control or first response alarm systems.

Fob

The BEST fob allows you to quickly and easily lock down your building via the SHELTER 900 MHz secure wireless network. Fobs can be assigned to lock down a single door, a set of doors or an entire building.

BEST 9KX Lock

This patent-pending BHMA Grade 1 lock functions on a 900 MHz secure wireless network. After receiving a lockdown command from the system, the 9KX transitions from standard classroom function to storeroom function. It is also equipped with visual and audio alarms to alert users that it is in lockdown mode.

PRECISION Electric Exit Device

Connected by a SHELTER repeater, this device enables lockdown of assembly areas by remote locking or unlocking of the outside trim. Adapting to customer needs and facility applications, the PRECISION Apex 2000 Series "E" Lock option also incorporates convenient code-compliant access control for outside entry.
