School lockdown door locks range from mechanical locks that can be secured at each individual door to online electromechanical locks that enable instant facility-wide response to potential dangers.

A primary objective for many schools is to incorporate classroom doors into a lockdown strategy. There are numerous types of locks that can fit into a lockdown plan. Choosing the right locking device will depend on the school's lockdown strategy:
Centralized decision with universal application:
  • Occurs when a decision is made from a single location to lock all doors campus-wide instantly with the push of a single button.


De-centralized decision with local application:
  • Allows each teacher to decide whether to evacuate or lock their own door based on their situational awareness and options.
