Dear List:

I was wondering if anyone has recently done any work on securing their building?
The things I have heard mentioned are
-a door buzzer
-a lockdown alarm (separate from the fire alarm) with pull stations around the building that can lock hallway doors (fire hazard?)

I am looking for hints about vendors in the state (along these lines)
