Everyone’s biggest fear is an active shooter event. If such a situation presents itself, you need to know at the exact moment it occurs. Gunfire detection uses infrared, acoustic, and shockwave sensors to pinpoint location, giving first responders the ability to isolate and de-escalate the threat quickly.
An emergency messaging system triggers alerts to everyone with clear and direct instructions to follow well-practiced safety responses when an incident is verified. Initiate calls to first responders, generate text message warnings, update digital signage, and send out prerecorded audio messages with the press of a button on a smartphone app or laptop.
Despite rigorous training, human observers are fallible. Our eyes tire and details are missed in the heat of the moment. AI-enabled video surveillance keeps watch on every corner of the building and grounds. The cloud-based software alerts senior safety staff of potential issues for review and action.
The variety of lensing options and camera types mean that you no longer need to worry about blind spots; every possible angle can be covered. Network-based video recorders furnish you with up to 8MP quality images, making evidence archiving and facial recognition tools more effective.
The first line of defense is managing access to buildings and facilities. Remote management and electronic locks keep a tight rein on who can enter. Keycard systems provide simple access and allow for quick revocation of access rights when needed. Students and staff can readily enter classrooms, while administrators manage temporary passes for parents and guests.
Controlling entry points also includes verifying visitors are not obscuring red flag details about themselves. A national ID management system allows you to access databases that check against records of convictions and arrests for charges such as sex offenses to gang affiliation. Additionally, the system confirms custodial status, ensuring that only the legal guardian can take a child out of school.
It is an unfortunate fact that serious threats exist against schools and students. An expertly designed, managed, and maintained school security system gives you the tools to prevent incidents and protect students. Are you looking to upgrade your school safety systems?
