The Learning Experience, a premier provider of childcare, preschool, and kindergarten services, has announced the installation of the LockOut Company’s SmartBoot System at their Clarkston and South Lyon franchise campuses, both in Michigan, with further rollout slated to take place in the near future.
The LockOut System, developed in Michigan, pairs physical room entry deterrent devices with Bluetooth technology to create a comprehensive building safety system. The system is designed to keep students and staff safe in the event of a school lockdown.
“We have always been proud to offer the very best in child care. Now we can be confident that we can also offer the very safest in child care. The SmartBoot System ensures that even if the worst should occur, we can protect the children in our care at The Learning Experience.” said Richard Gibout, franchise owner at both locations.
“The SmartBoot System is very user friendly and allows our teachers to quickly and securely lock down the entire school with one simple motion, maximizing the security and safety of all of the children in our care at The Learning Experience.” Designed to enable deployment that even a child can manage, The LockOut System greatly reduces the possibility of human error through automated alerts, visual and audio lockdown signals, a mobile application, and direct communication with law enforcement through a dispatch application. The system also detects gunfire and can automatically initiate a school lockdown when a threat is present.
By reducing the possibility for human error and increasing the chances that teachers and students can lockdown their rooms effectively, The Learning Experience has created a safer environment for their students. While the staff of both the Learning Experience and The LockOut Company hope their system will never require use, both groups feel better knowing they are in a safer position if a lockdown is ever necessary.
“The SmartBoot System ensures that even if the worst should occur, we can protect the children in our care at The Learning Experience. Our teachers and parents are relieved that we have invested so markedly in putting safety as a number one priority,” said Gibout. “As the only child care center in Michigan with the SmartBoot System they feel confident that The Learning Experience puts safety at the forefront.”
LockOut Company Owner and inventor of The Boot, Rob Couturier, echoed Gibout’s position, “It’s difficult to be in an industry that has to address student and teacher safety, but we believe that by making schools safer, we’re addressing the problem head on, rather than just talking about it and hoping for the best.”
