Keeping our students safe
Educational institutions are responsible for creating positive learning environments. Studies confirm that teaching, research, and learning happen best when everyone feels safe. From kindergarten and high school to college and university, educational institutions require a proactive security solution that keeps students, staff, and faculty focused on greater academic achievement.
Creating a better academic environment
Increase situational intelligence
Understanding all the factors of an emerging incident or event can help security personnel resolve situations quickly. However, as educational institutions increase in size and complexity, maintaining an all-encompassing view can be a challenge. You require a physical security system that provides security personnel with the information necessary to respond quickly and effectively to any situation.
Efficient Parking Management
Strong, ongoing parking enforcement policies help students and staff get where they need to be easily and on time. Using ALPR units to go gateless can improve customer service by helping you to track of off-street violations and lot occupancy in real-time. This allows you to improve compliance, reduce emissions from idling vehicles, and direct drivers to lots with open spaces.
Secure your entire campus
Educational institutions can include multiple teaching facilities, research labs, dormitories, libraries, sports complexes, and parking lots. These can be collected in a single area or spread over multiple sites. A physical security system that unifies IP video surveillance, access control, and automatic license plate recognition within one intuitive solution can help security personnel keep your entire institution secure.
Helping students feel secure
Provide an education-focused environment
Creating the right environment for learning and growing is key for the continued success of students throughout their education. Disruptions can negatively impact learning by distracting students, derailing lesson plans, or, in the worst case, causing long-term trauma. You require a security solution that helps maintain a secure environment without intruding on the learning experience.
Facilitate community sharing
When an event or incident occurs at an educational institution, it is paramount that responders can act quickly and knowledgeably. Emergency preparedness includes establishing clear connections and communication pathways with law enforcement and other local authorities. Having the ability to provide responders with system access or video can significantly improve the outcome of any situation.
Manage the flow
Students, teachers, parents, and service people move through our educational institutions every day. Identifying and counting each one is essential for maintaining security. You need a physical security system that enables you to establish and track access, lockdown a facility in an emergency, and integrate smoke, intrusion, and IoT alarms as well as gunshot detection technology.
