NAPCO's Access Locks Protect Notre Dame High, Alma Mater to a Host of High Profile Celebrities
AMITYVILLE, N.Y., Oct. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- NAPCO Security Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: NSSC), one of the world's leading suppliers of high performance electronic security equipment for over 30 years, shared today that the security and access control provided by its Alarm Lock Trilogy Locks has proven so successful that their numbers have increased all over the famed Notre Dame High School in Sherman Oaks, California. Notre Dame's system now includes the next generation networked Trilogy Networx® wireless models. Notre Dame is part of the Company's growing list of educational institutional references using advanced Trilogy locks for their convenient ID card or PIN code access-control to doors inside and out. Of increasing importance today, is that they can also offer classroom lock-down from portable keyfobs up to five hundred feet away to protect students, faculty and staff in an emergency or active shooter event. The new global-functioning Networx lock models have the capability to lock-down an entire school or campus from any one lock or from the school server in under ten seconds.
Richard Soloway, Chairman and President of NAPCO commented, "These access control products are an ideal answer to the daunting and problematic trend we increasingly see today of school shootings and violence on campus. This sad turn of events has made security a top priority for educational institutions across our nation. Everyone involved in schools, from parents and educators, to facility managers, are seeking actionable steps to take. Notre Dame is another example of how well NAPCO's broad line of state-of-the-art security and lockdown solutions perform on guard, protecting staff and students of all ages, from preschool and daycare, middle and high school, right through colleges & universities. No other company can match our comprehensive and innovative security offerings, for institutions of all sizes and budgets, because security is all we do, and we have decades of experience built into every NAPCO product."
Proudly chosen to secure Notre Dame High School, Alarm Lock Trilogy locks are protecting the school's current student body of 1,200 students and 100+ faculty and administrative personnel, in an institution that has graduated an incredible group since its founding in 1947. They include well-known celebrities in the fields of sports, film and government. Notables among them include actress Kirsten Dunst, actors Jerry Mathers (Leave It to Beaver) and Ed Begley Jr., director Nick Cassavetes, singer Katherine McPhee (American Idol), MLB GM Pat Gillick (3X World Series Champion), MLB players Chris Dickerson (Baltimore Orioles), Jack McDowell (3X All-Star and Cy Young Award winner) and Giancarlo Stanton (Miami Marlins); NFL players Justin Fargas (Oakland Raiders) and Nick Folk (New York Jets), sports broadcaster Mary Strong and Admiral Michael Mullen.
Trilogy locks have been used to secure Notre Dame for about seven years and now cover more than a hundred doors, including those server-controllable Trilogy Networx with global lock and unlock functions. "Field-proven Alarm Lock Trilogy® locks are both advanced and rugged, making them a favorite in K-12s, colleges and universities. They're the ideal package -- easy deployment, dependability and affordability, because they're literally a top electronic access control system in lock form," added Mr. Soloway. "Notre Dame faculty members can conveniently carry a Prox keyfob to access their building, classrooms and labs, while access given to outside contractors, housekeeping, and other service personnel can be managed with temporary IDs. Plus, the locks can also be set to automatically lock or unlock at a given school schedule daily or weekly, so teachers and facility people have less to worry about. Meanwhile, in a crisis the Networx Locks can lock intruders out of classrooms or let first responders in everywhere at once, in mere seconds, activated from any one lock, keyfob or their computer network."
