Campus Safety

Troxell is the largest reseller of Help Alert Emergency Response solution, a real-time locating system that provides students, their parents, and your staff with the peace of mind that, if needed, help is on the way with the touch of a button.

Empower teachers and staff to instantly and discreetly call for help!

Today, some 93 percent of public schools control access to school buildings by locking or monitoring doors during school hours and another 75 percent use security cameras to monitor the school. *But this is only the first line of defense.

School safety must transcend access controls and video surveillance, and put it right where it's most needed: in the hands of teachers and staff who are closest to the learning environment and the kids you're trying to protect.

Troxell puts school safety first with the Help Alert Emergency Response Solution. Help Alert gives teachers and staff the ability to instantly and silently alert authorities to trouble before it spins out of control...that crucial first 30 seconds.

The Help Alert mobile Panic Button and wireless Mass Notification Solution instantly alerts the appropriate resources for faster, more agile responses to teachers and staff in need.

Today’s schools remain relatively safe. Yet risks do arise—disruptive behaviors, bullying and other violence, playground injuries, and more—that call for a time-critical response.

With a single click the mobile panic button alerts security to teachers and staff in need while wireless mass notification allows those under extreme duress to notify not only security but everyone in the building that a major situation is underway AND triggers all pendands to report their location.

Help right where you need it... within reach!

Help Alert pendants can be pinned to garments, clipped on belts, or placed into pockets, allowing teachers and staff to instantly and discreetly call for help just by pressing a button. Silent alarms keep potentially threatening situations from escalating, and teachers and staff can easily escalate the type of help needed—from administrators and school resource officers to emergency responders—as the situation warrants.

Location-aware tracking for faster response!

Once a teacher or staff member activates the Help Alert pendant, their location is quickly pinpointed via your WiFi or WLAN infrastructure and communicated to the Help Alert app. As the teacher or staff member moves from place to place, Help Alert tracks their movements to ensure that security officers and first responders know exactly where to go.

Complete integration... and situational awareness!

Help Alert easily integrates into your existing WiFi or WLAN environment and requires no additional cabling, wiring, or new builds. Plus, it integrates with your video security system for more complete situational awareness. A simple setup and deployment and support for multiple desktop and mobile devices ensures that staff and teachers can immediately get the help they need in urgent situations.
