Customize office or school lockdown plans for any emergency situation, including active shooter, natural disasters, and unsolicited visitors.
Our Flexible Lockdown solution provides the ability to activate or revert lockdown plans from any Smart Reader, remote device, including a mobile phone, or third-party trigger. In addition, administrators are provided robust flexibility to send real-time alerts and create unlimited lockdown plans based on the level of severity, associated protocols, and zones.
"Having the ability to create multiple plans and activate them from a remote device is a requirement we keep seeing from schools, companies, and landlords who need to respond to today's current threat landscape."
– Ryan Schonfeld, CEO of RAS Security Group
Our Flexible Lockdown feature, with unlimited plans and instant alert capability, is included at no additional cost for all schools and 501(c)(3) organizations.

Create unique plans for different scenarios
Openpath Flexible Lockdown lets you create unlimited secure Lockdown plans to address various scenarios. For example, a plan for suspicious packages will lock down entries near delivery areas, whereas an active shooter safety plan will trigger a sitewide lockdown.
Use a wired button to trigger lockdown
Openpath’s door Lockdown system lets you choose from several trigger options: mobile app, tablet, laptop, key card, and IoT buttons. We highly recommend having a wired method in place as backup. Wiring an emergency button directly to the Smart Hub ensures you have a reliable trigger regardless of Internet connection or BLE signal strength.
Use backup batteries and cellular routers
In an emergency, your access control and lockdown door system hardware need to remain online and responsive even through a power or Internet outage. Install sufficient backup batteries in your Smart Hubs, and consider installing cellular routers to ensure Internet uptime.
Fail secure locks and fire code requirements
For the safety of students, tenants, and employees, use fail secure door locks, which lock when power is interrupted, but still allow free egress (required by fire codes and accessibility compliance). In the event of a power outage, intruders can’t get inside, but those inside the building can safely exit.
Additional security measures
Depending on your requirements, you may need to prohibit certain items, use metal detectors, and display security system stickers in windows or other public facing areas.
