Wouldn’t it be nice if you could protect your building with the press of a button? Now you can! The SHELTER Fob is used to initiate lockdown with only the press of a button. The fob comes with a cover to prevent accidentally engaging lockdown. Users can confirm the fob is connected to the SHELTER system and gateway (sold separately) by pressing and holding the bottom asterisk button. Visual LED indicators under the buttons confirm successful and unsuccessful actions. The fob has a range of 200 feet indoors but can be extended using a SHELTER repeater (sold separately). Customize the scalable SHELTER lockdown system so that one or multiple fobs can lock a single door, a wing, or the entire system of doors connected to the network.

The cloud-based SHELTER management software integrates with first response and electronic systems. Configure and manage your property’s SHELTER network from any web browser, anywhere! Create locking scenarios where a fob controls one door, a wing, or the entire facility. Also receive and send email/text alerts for lockdown status changes, view reports, and run diagnostic tests.


A unique combination of code-compliant hardware and proven technology is a responsive lockdown solution ideal for all types of business environments and budgets. Even more, SHELTER was developed with input from those who have experienced live lockdown situations. This distinct perspective led to an innovative set of features and functionality that allows businesses to custom tailor how SHELTER responds in the event of a lockdown.

The SHELTER portal allows school administrators, commercial facility managers and security officers to easily connect to the system from most web browsers and perform operations such as:

  • Enrolling devices and defining groups
  • Identifying self-diagnostics and who receives notifications
  • Assigning fobs to initiate lockdown of a single door, groups of doors or the entire facility
  • Monitoring system activity
  • Managing notifications for lockdown status changes
  • Setting up network users


At the core of the SHELTER system is a gateway that sends signals to each door lock to initiate lockdown. Plugged into a UPS or power supply with battery back-up, the SHELTER gateway doesn’t require an Internet connection to initiate lockdown. This alleviates any concerns that your network must be operational during the most critical times. With a 400-foot range,* the gateway can be paired with up to seven repeaters to extend the signal range throughout a building. Additionally, with assistance from your integration resource, the SHELTER repeater can be configured to send a relay signal to your pre-installed access control system, allowing communication with first responders.

*Wireless range will vary based on application, operating environment, building materials and external factors. A site survey is highly recommended to determine the specific requirements for your application.


Specific hardware can be enrolled on your SHELTER 900 MHz secure wireless network to quickly lock doors via a fob. BEST offers the SHELTER enabled 9KX cylindrical lock and the 45HX mortise lock equipped with both classroom and storeroom functionality. A door can be locked/unlocked manually at your discretion, or locked down from the fob so that the outside lever is rigid and requires a key to retract the latch for entry. Likewise, electrified exit devices, like the PRECISION Apex 2000 Series, can be connected to a SHELTER repeater. This allows the outside trim to be locked/unlocked remotely to enable lockdown, while always ensuring free egress.
