Are you looking for a way to make your school more secure? In recent events, many schools have become aware of the dangers. Many new tools have been created to ensure safer schools and universities with technological advancements. One of these highly effective tools is video surveillance.
Usherwood works with many educational institutions to ensure that their physical and virtual environments are secure. We are constantly seeking out the most advanced technology to ensure that our clients are receiving the most effective solutions for their business.
Whether you decide to use the Axis line of video surveillance or not, it is important to have something similar in place to create a safe and welcoming environment for your school.
Here are some of the features that axis can keep your school or university safe.
Promote a safe learning environment that will leverage your school for future growth.
It is essential that when people enter their school or institution, as a student, teachers, faculty, or visitor, they feel safe. An effective and efficient security solution is an excellent step to combat bullying, vandalism, theft, and absenteeism within your school, ultimately creating a more comfortable and successful learning environment.
Cameras can be placed in many areas throughout the building, both indoors and outdoors. Some of those areas include:
- Hallways and corridors.
- Classrooms, computer rooms, and labs.
- Cafeterias, libraries, and sports facilities.
- Entrances and exits.
- Parking lots and other outdoor school property.
Axis Cameras record any time that motion is detected. This ensures that activity will be captured while saving storage space by not recording. You can choose to have the cameras surveilling at any time, but the longer they are on, the more storage space is taken up. The cameras are weather-proof to ensure they never diminish their quality.
Faster investigations/minimized bandwidth:
Axis cameras have motion detector sensors, which means the camera will record when something is happening to ensure storage space is not being used if it does not need to be. If an incident occurs, you can see when and who is responsible. There are also automatic alerts so that no incident goes unmissed- you will be aware and respond much quicker.
Axis has a range of different cameras to choose the best for your specific environment. The traditional cameras are the dome cameras which present a clear, visible security presence in your facility. If you want a low-profile camera, Axis has cameras that can be disguised as standard interior fixtures.
Axis Corridor Format automatically gives maximum coverage for a long view of vertical areas such as hallways, staircases, and aisles.
You can access live camera footage at any time if the device is authorized. Any video can be captured or distributed over any IP network or the internet.
Enhance your security on-site by controlling who can and cannot access your building. Axis products for video surveillance and door control allow you to either allow or prohibit people's access into the building. This controlled access keeps unwanted intruders from getting inside and ensures that only authorized personnel are permitted.
Enables remote accessibility:
Not only are you able to increase security and incentivize more well-behaved students, but you can also use axis live streaming cameras to live stream ceremonies or broadcast school activities.
Prepare your school for whatever the future may hold:
Axis Cameras can better your school environment in a multitude of ways. Providing maximum protection to students, staff, and property with an integrated security solution allows the school environment to focus on what matters, teaching and educating students. Their live streaming cameras also ensure that you can be prepared for whatever is thrown at you.
Not only is it essential to ensure that your physical environment is secure, but as cyber-attacks become more and more common, it has become just as important to emphasize virtual security as well.
As an educational institution, you have access to confidential student, faculty, and staff information. Without the proper cybersecurity tools, your institution could put many people at risk of getting their private data stolen.
As a managed IT provider, Usherwood works with many schools to ensure that they follow best practices and use the latest technology to mitigate the risk of cyberattacks. We can provide solutions to keep both your physical environment and your virtual environment as secure as possible.
