OnSite SE

OnSite SE is Brivo's access-control solution for larger, more complex applications that require data to be maintained within the organization's own network. OnSite SE is a powerful IT “appliance”-based access-control solution using a rack-mounted embedded Web platform capable of provisioning and managing multiple networked control panels. Dedicated PCs with installed software are unnecessary, having been replaced with a Web-based intuitive user interface that can be accessed from any computer with access to the network.

Crisis management

Emergency response system helps district prepare for urgent situations

Prepared Response. The Castleberry Independent School District, Texas, will install the Rapid Responder crisis-management system to protect students, staff and buildings in case of an emergency. The district received an Emergency Response and Crisis Management grant for $100,400 from the U.S. Department of Education. The system will be installed in all of the district's elementary, middle, high school and administrative facilities. The district also will receive bio-emergency/infectious disease and critical incident training/response courses as part of the grant.

The Rapid Responder system provides school security, police, fire personnel and other first responders with key information that allows them to act quickly, decisively and in coordination with other responders. The system calls for pre-planning meetings among school officials and first responders, “digital mapping” of school buildings, and training for school staff and responders.

Agencies responding to an emergency will be able to view more than 300 data points, including floor plans, satellite and geospatial (GIS) information, interior and exterior photos, emergency plans, hazardous-materials locations, utility shutoffs and evacuation routes.

The Rapid Responder system was used at a Washington state high school to quickly contain a gunman and evacuate 2,000 students in 20 minutes, and in another incident to locate the shutoff valve for a broken fire sprinkler system, preventing more than $100,000 in damage.
