nSide|Lockdown™ is Now Available!

nSide|Lockdown™ is a mobile app that gives your school administrators the ability to manage emergencies with the push of a button. Users will have the ability to initiate a lockdown sequence for their campus and directly send notifications to local emergency management agencies simply by tapping a few buttons.

How the Process Works

Phase 1:

  1. All users for your district need to Register for an nSide Account.
  2. Initially, the school district must submit a list of users to nSide for them to ingest into the Platform. Once those users have been set up, then districts can move forward to Phase 2. The following information is required for each user:
    • First Name
    • Last Name
    • Email Address
    • Valid Mobile Number (must be capable of receiving SMS text messages)

Phase 2:

  1. All users need to download the nSide Lockdown App
  2. Log into the app with the credentials created when users registered for an account
  3. Use the app to send Alerts, Admin Messages, etc.
