Technology to Secure Schools

Life Check Systems ensures school security policies are followed 100% of the time. If they are not, the system notifies management in real time by phone call, text, and email so corrective action can be taken.  Our live, direct-to-supervisor alerts create accountability and guard against complacency.

How Life Check Improves School Safety

1) Install Location Tags

Affix our all-weather, quarter-sized tags to interior and/or exterior surfaces with rivets or security screws at all sensitive areas that should be continuously checked in-person while students are present (e.g., all exterior doors, key perimeters, parking lots, vulnerable windows, bathrooms, storage areas, etc.).


2) Customize Security Policies

Require any locations or groups of locations to be checked on any schedule (e.g., every 48 mins; x and z every 18 hrs; these daily; those weekly; one of those monthly, etc.). Schedule policies to automatically start and/or repeat, require photos, videos, and/or observations at certain places or times.

3) Physical Contact Required

Personnel executing policies must physically touch an LCS mobile device to a mounted location tag to log a check. LCS uploads all data in real time to our secure server network which monitors policies to push local alerts and initiate calls, texts, and/or emails to custom groups of contacts. Detailed reports can be auto-emailed daily.

4) Be certain polices are followed

Administration has a live view online of every policy and will receive emailed reports daily highlighting any missed observations or irregularities from the prior 24 hours.  These records:

  • Create accountability and leave no room for doubt
  • Reduce liability risks by documenting compliance

Live Notifications & Cellular Connectivity

In order to provide accurate notices, Life Check devices must be online. Devices are preprogrammed to connect to multiple Wi-Fi networks (i.e., multiple schools), but are not limited to Wi-Fi.  Each device has a Verizon cellular service connection that automatically connects if Wi-Fi is not available. So, Life Check can provide live access and notices for patrols that include schools in multiple locations (or on college campuses between Wi-Fi access points).

“We have Life Check in our school system in Northwest Tennessee. The installation and setup are the hardest parts of getting things going, but those two steps are quite simple. Once the system is in place, everything runs smoothly. The online platform is user friendly as is the systems as a whole. As a school system, the added security and accountability are welcome as we work daily to keep our students safe. The team at Life Check has been excellent as we have implemented this system in our school system.”

What Organizations can use Life Check?

Any law enforcement or security agency, individual school, school district, or other educational organization—public or private–can use Life Check.  Due to our modern cloud-and-mobile platform, highly customizable features, and cellular connectivity, each organization can set up their system to suit specific needs.  Organizations with multiple schools or campuses, like county governments or universities, have many options in setting up their system based on the availability of personnel, and administrators will have live access to all sites from a central login.

County Sheriff’s Offices

A county Sheriff’s Office can implement Life Check at schools with or without SROs to ensure policies are followed and documented.  For schools with officers, Life Check allows management to be certain that officers are present and actively patrolling.

For county schools without SROs, the sheriff can install location tags at multiple schools and create policies that require patrol officers to travel between schools conducting and logging checks.  The schedule is 100% customizable, so the frequency of checks can be altered to accommodate each organization’s staffing levels.

Private Schools

Private schools with or without security staff can purchase and operate Life Check at a single school site or among multiple buildings on a larger campus.  Any staff member can learn to use Life Check regardless of prior training or background.  From the end-user’s perspective, it is as simple as following the prompts on the mobile device.

Municipal Police Departments

A Municipal Police Department can purchase and use LCS to document patrols of the schools within their jurisdiction, exactly like a Sheriff’s Office.

College & University Police Departments

A college or university police department can purchase and manage LCS on their campus or campuses.

Every LCS mobile device is also an on-demand body camera.

With the push of a dedicated hard button on the side of the device, the body camera will begin recording high definition video and audio that will automatically be uploaded to your website.

  • No Storage Limits

    There is no limit on how many recordings you can store, and of course there are no data charges.
