Integrating School Security: Our Expertise
When it comes to integrating security systems for schools, we’ve got you covered. The three main pillars—cameras, access control, and alarm systems—form the foundation. But the integration possibilities go beyond the basics. Our solutions range from flooding the school with comprehensive camera coverage to setting up access control on various doors, enabling alarm systems that arm during off-hours, and even implementing lockdown scenarios. The spectrum of what we can do is vast and tailored to each school’s unique needs.
Empowering Law Enforcement with Camera Access
Yes, school administrators can indeed grant local law enforcement access to school security cameras. We can set up their vehicles and computers to view live feeds, ensuring quick responses when needed. For critical situations, SWAT or the active team can have instant access not only to view the cameras but also to control and manage locking and unlocking doors.
Access Control Unveiled: Installation and Door Types
Installing access control on school doors is a well-thought-out process. We run cables to the door, adding devices like card readers and electrified hardware to replace original locks. A door contact lets us know if the door is open or closed, while a “request to exit” device validates exits. As for door types, we can work with virtually any style, except for those pesky pocket-style doors that slide into walls.
Credentials to Open Doors: Versatility in Readers
Our school access control systems support various authentication methods. From standard proximity cards and PIN codes to cutting-edge Bluetooth technology, we offer a range of options. With Bluetooth, your phone connects to the reader, unlocking the door as you approach—a convenient and futuristic solution.
