More than ever, schools and universities face increasing threats to their students, personnel, buildings, and grounds. Security managers must keep track of various locations: outdoor and indoor areas, playgrounds, sports fields, research laboratories, libraries, canteens, and more. With limited security budgets and a shortage of trained staff, educational institutions strive to provide an open, nurturing environment without compromising their students’ security and privacy.
A comprehensive solution for the education sector must be efficient on three levels: preventing incidents, mitigating damage, and communicating as incidents are happening, and post-incident investigations.
A typical school security system consists of video surveillance equipment, including IP cameras, a video management systems, video analytics, access control, as well as a secure and scalable IT infrastructure. Thus, educational facilities would greatly benefit from intelligent surveillance solutions that integrate easily with existing third-party security cameras while providing the same advanced functionality to analyze all the video footage with actionable insight in real-time.
