When an IP Masthead is added to the system, NEXUS units can be monitored and controlled from one central location using the PC app. Silent tests can be initiated via the app, and units can be reset post-activation.
Email alerts can be set up so that 3 separate email groups can be notified under defined circumstances in the event of an activation.
The NEXUS Lockdown system is designed to give a clear alert in the event of an activation. Lockdown units are visually and audibly distinct from fire alert units to minimise disruption and confusion. NEXUS Lockdown units comply with Ofsted lockdown procedure guidelines that fall in line with advice from the National Counter Terrorism Office, which state that ‘the use of fire alarms should be avoided to reduce incorrect responses to an incident’.
Lockdown units can enunciate a bespoke lockdown message that can be fully customised at the time of ordering. Alternatively, units can be ordered with a sounder that has 32 different alert sounds to choose from. Either variant is paired with a visual flashing beacon light.
