Improve school security and protect your students, school grounds and valuable equipment with a 24/7 CCTV remote monitoring solution.
Schools, colleges and universities are as valuable as any enterprise, if not more so, by virtue of being centres of learning. Thriving academic communities support and encourage young people to become responsible and capable individuals, producing generations of professionals, intellectuals and innovators. Education contributes to personal development both culturally and technologically but also socially. Plainly the value of knowledge in immeasurable.
With 24/7 CCTV monitoring school security
It makes sense, then, to prioritise the safety of such establishments by implementing a school security solution – more specifically, by installing detector activated CCTV cameras that transmit a live feed to a remote video response centre (RVRC), allowing educators to enjoy the benefits of remote monitoring. There are many positive effects from introducing digital surveillance to a school environment. For example:
- The integrity of the grounds is ensured.
- The risk of criminal incidents, burglary, arson etc. is drastically reduced.
- Expensive technology and important equipment (computers, projectors, lab equipment, etc.) is protected.
Despite the many and varied advantages of remote monitoring for schools, the presence of CCTV cameras around classrooms and yards understandably begets concerns about the perceived invasion of privacy. There may also be infrastructural problems to consider but by completing a simple risk assessment these concerns can usually be easily overcome. A solution could be putting cameras only in areas where they are most likely to help rectify any prevailing problems. For extra peace of mind, please note that our control room staff are security screened.
To cite an example of how this works, we will refer to a PSM-monitored primary school in Northumberland. In this case, prior to being a remotely monitored site, the most pressing matter was the premises’ close proximity to public recreational facilities, a park and playground, which meant that children and teenagers using said facilities would often access the school grounds by climbing the fences and up onto the rooftops; thus, we arranged for cameras and motion detectors to be situated to give coverage to those areas. In doing so, we were able to prevent this kind of activity by monitoring it and issuing audio as a deterrent.
