SilverShield Safety & Information Systems, providers of the industry’s most advanced cloud-based multi-platform solution, is demonstrating the capabilities of their visitor management and communication software at ISC West this week. Originally developed for school campus applications, the software incorporates a fully-integrated suite of modules including visitor management, lockdown initiation and much more.
“Our desire for a better way to protect the students, staff and visitors at schools was the initial impetus for the development of the SilverShield system,” said Robin Baker, CTO, SilverShield. “Now we are expanding our focus to offer our unique solution to a wider audience, including medical-related facilities and businesses of all types.”
Unmanned visitor screening
Users can check visitors’ credentials against watchlists, and the national sex offender database, in near-real-time
Designed to expedite emergency security procedures, the SilverShield Visitor Management System enables manned or unmanned visitor screening at all types of facilities. Users can check visitors’ credentials against watchlists, and the national sex offender database, in near-real-time. If there is a threat identified at any entrance, the system allows silent alerts to be sent immediately to designated stakeholders.
You can also use the SilverShield system to create temporary ID badges, identify any known VIPs upon arrival, notify your staff of VIP or other visitor arrivals, and maintain a database of visitor history. When integrated with the SilverShield ID Badge System, the system can also generate permanent ID badging for staff, students, volunteers and vendors. The SilverShield Virtual Lockdown System alerts designated stakeholders via an audible siren sent to all users’ computers or mobile devices in case of an emergency.
Visitor management system
This siren, audible even if the users are wearing earbuds or have other applications running on their devices, instantly prompts users to take immediate action to initiate their lockdown procedures. The SilverShield Incident Management System is a near-real-time alarm system that integrates directly with the Visitor Management System or can be used stand-alone. It can alert local police, initiate a virtual lockdown, and produce mass emergency notifications via email, SMS/text, mobile and web push notifications.

The SilverShield Event Management System pre-screens guests against watchlists and the national sex offender database, ensuring that unwanted guests are not invited to your events. The system will manage RSVPs and can even issue parking and visitor passes to approved guests via email and SMS/text– letting event administrators increase control over their events.
Learning management system
SilverShield Virtual Academy can be used for all types of security and other proprietary training. A video-based Learning Management System with lessons and assignments that you can create or purchase from SilverShield ensures that your staff is trained properly.
The in-app SilverShield HR & Safety Resource Center connects schools and businesses with local, highly-trained security professionals to develop a security assessment, plan and documentation – ensuring your organisation and staff is prepared and trained in the event of an emergency. The SilverShield Kiosk System empowers visitors to register themselves upon arrival – manually or by scanning a valid ID. Ideal for organisations with unstaffed entrances, the Kiosk System will quickly notify staff of VIPs or unwelcome guests, increasing security at all entrances.
