Why Should A School Invest In An Emergency Alert System?

A school lockdown notification system and mass communication tool allows you to instantly notify all staff and students both on and off campus about any situation around your school site. From emergency lockdowns to weather warnings, you can save time, ensure security and increase efficiency, no matter the situation.

Our highly-visual internal communications tools completely bypass email, ensuring what you say gets noticed and won’t get lost in an inbox. With fast, unmissable communication that is easy to use and initiate, our lockdown systems and digital alarms have proven themselves to be crucial in times of urgency.

Every Second Counts

Clarion’s Digital Alerts deliver lockdown and emergency notifications that can’t be skipped or ignored to staff and students on a range on devices in one single action – saving precious time during a crisis.

Alerts You Can Trust

Ensure that your scheduled tests go out when planned and guarantee that an alert never goes missed with our reliable emergency notifications and alarms. Instantly improve your school’s emergency communication and safety procedures.

Staff and Student Security

Digital alerts support emergency and lockdown procedures with their clear and concise messages to all connected computers, mobiles and classroom boards. Setting up ready-made “emergency response” alerts saves time and ensures emergency procedure efficiency.

Any Screen, Any Time

Send notifications and alerts to Windows, Chrome, Mac and Linux desktops, as well as classroom smart boards. Even your remote staff and students can be contacted, ensuring that no one is left in the dark.


A key feature of our mass communication Digital Alerts for schools and colleges is the ability to integrate with existing systems to improve alert delivery, procedure efficiency and save money. Clarion’s digital alerts can integrate with your pre-existing PA and control systems (gates, emergency lighting, sounders etc) to implement lockdown procedures, classroom schedules, after-hours security steps and more.
