Courthouses/Government

Securing courts & public buildings for over a decade.

More than 90% of attacks on state and local judges occur at the courthouse. It is important that, when an incident occurs, emergency personnel are notified immediately of what is happening, when it is happening.  At Response Technologies we have significant expertise in understanding duress as it applies to local, state and federal facilities. For the last 10 + years, we have applied our experience to help protect hundreds of courts along with hundreds of thousands of their employees and visitors across the country.

Response Technologies has experience working within buildings of all shapes and sizes. Whether a brand new build, or a historical structure, we can provide a non-intrusive duress solution that can fit any facility.  Our flagship Centurion® system uses wireless duress buttons to provide an easy to install and expandable panic button solution. When one of a variety of buttons are pressed, a location specific notification can be sent out almost instantly through various output options, including two-way radio, phone, email, or text.  Courts often utilize the radio output first to notify their bailiffs, dial 911 as a backup and send out a facility-wide email to court employees in order to ensure an efficient response.

While panic buttons have been a staple in courthouse security for some time, we’ve seen a growing trend of local municipalities now taking an interest in providing their employees with a means for alerting local law enforcement of emergencies as well.  However, providing a unified panic solution for multiple facilities across an entire city can often prove challenging and costly with traditional wireless duress buttons.  Response Technologies has developed a solution to provide city-wide duress functionality, while still being economically feasible.  PCDuress® is proprietary network based software that allows cities to leverage their existing IT infrastructure to provide points of activation to multiple buildings, even if they are miles apart, using a single Centurion® system.  This means that a Centurion® could be placed at a town hall and any city facility sharing the same network could have computers equipped with PCDuress®.  When PCDuress® is triggered it would activate the Centurion®, sending an immediate notification of the incident and location to local law enforcement via radio, phone, email or text.

Response Technologies can help you develop the right solution for your court or city’s emergency response needs.  For more information on the solutions we provide, please contact us at 800-537-0102 or at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Educational Facilities

From K-12 to college and university campuses, Response Technologies protects.

School safety is always on our mind. Students, teachers and other key school staff are the lifeblood of our local communities and are our future. In the U.S. the school population in total on any given weekday is among the largest captive populations of people in the country. In a duress situation, seconds are critical, and the Centurion® emergency response system can provide the confidence that schools need. Centurion® from Response Technologies can easily, quickly and efficiently provide an entire school district with the ability to communicate to a designated group, including first responders in real-time, in case of an emergency situation.

Response Technologies understands that security in today’s educational setting needs to be quick and flexible. With application to the education market, our 10+ years of experience securing courthouses and other government facilities help us understand the challenges that can arise and how to adapt and overcome them. Our flagship Centurion® system uses wireless duress buttons to provide an easy to install and expandable panic button solution. When one of a variety of buttons are pressed, a location specific notification identifying the incident location can be sent out almost instantly to one or all output options including two-way law enforcement radios, phone, email, or text.  Recently an Ohio high school outfitted with the Centurion® had an activation; a mass text was sent to mobile devices of school administration, operations and first responders. An off duty police officer living near the school received the text on his mobile phone and immediately responded, going to the school to assess the situation.

Educational institutions face tough challenges in today’s world. They must provide a safe and secure learning environment, but also must do so within the confines of ever tightening budgets. Understanding those challenges we set out to provide an efficient and cost effective panic solution to keep our schools and universities safe. What we developed was PCDuress®, a proprietary network based panic button solution. PCDuress® allows a school district, or university campus, to leverage existing IT infrastructure to provide a panic solution to multiple buildings using a single Centurion® system. Within a school district for example, PCDuress® can be deployed at each buildings administrative offices with the main unit housed at the district office. This can provide a unified panic solution for the entire district on one system making it easy to maintain, monitor and expand.

Response Technologies can help you develop the right solution for your schools emergency response.

Healthcare Facilities

Providing peace of mind, through experience, to facility, staff and their patients.

Hospitals, outpatient facilities, medical office buildings and assisted living facilities all have their own unique challenges when it comes to ensuring safety. Response Technologies has vast experience in healthcare facility protection, allowing us to provide simple, fast and intuitive solutions.  We understand the security risks involved at healthcare facilities, both in general units as well as units requiring a higher priority, and provide adaptive solutions to fit those needs.

Response Technologies understands that security in today’s healthcare setting needs to be quick and flexible. With application to the healthcare market, our 10+ years of experience securing courthouses and other facilities helps us understand the challenges that can arise and how to adapt and overcome them. Our flagship Centurion® system uses wireless duress buttons to provide an easy to install and expandable panic button solution. When one of a variety of buttons are pressed, a location specific notification can be sent out almost instantly through various output options including two-way radio, phone, email, or text. Recently a hospital outfitted with the Centurion® had an activation; a person with a knife was involved in an altercation with another patron of the facility. The incident escalated as it moved through adjacent units. While the incident occurred, the Centurion® was activated by nurses alerting Security of the current location of the problem.

Healthcare facilities can run into issues securing all their buildings, sometimes due to the large distance between them. The main facility may be simple to cover conventionally, but outpatient facilities or the medical office building may be miles away. Understanding this challenge, we set out to provide an efficient and cost effective panic solution. What we developed was PCDuress®, a proprietary network based panic button solution. PCDuress® allows healthcare facilities to leverage existing IT infrastructure to provide a panic solution to multiple buildings, using a single Centurion® system. Within a health network for example, PCDuress® can be deployed at each off campus building with the main unit housed at the primary care hospital. This can provide a unified panic solution for the entire health network on one system making it easy to maintain, monitor and expand.
