ZKAccess’ LB7000 Enables Instant Lockdown of Buildings in Event of Active Shooter Incident

The company says the LB7000 was designed primarily due to the recent shootings, particularly at schools.

FAIRFIELD, N.J. — ZKAccess, a provider of biometric and RFID security solutions, has released the LB7000, its latest access control model.

The “lockbox” enables facility managers to instantly lock down all doors on a campus, and the company says it was designed primarily in response to the rash of active shooter incidents, most notably at schools.

The LB7000 is a wall-mounted hardware device with a soft touch keypad. It acts as a switch that can lock down all doors on a campus. The LB7000 also offers the option of locking down only a grouping of pre-defined doors. If, for example, a campus has only two buildings, the facilities manager can opt to create two groups, one for reach building. If a threat is reported in only one building, the manager can accordingly lock down all the doors in that particular building and keep the doors open in the other building so occupants can evacuate.

An auto-discovery feature is also included in the LB7000, which detects and lists onscreen all the door controllers on the network. Once the emergency no longer exists, the facilities manager can press the “recover” soft key to resume normal operation of the building’s access control system.
