Hopdial Phone Security Integration
Our feature rich HopDial business phone systems offer complete phone security integration and can control most electronic locking mechanisms (perimeter security) already existing in your building(s). A security lockdown is typically initiated in the form of a “lockdown” code that can be dialed from any phone or smartphone.
HopDial has the ability to integrate with many existing paging, bells, door locks, etc. For businesses, schools and government facilities that are new or do not have existing solutions, a complete integrated system can be bundled along with our exceptional voice technology.
