Safeguard children and youth from harm
Whether a K-12 school, high school, or university/college campus, safeguarding children and youth is a top priority for education administrators and parents.
Educational institutions face a challenging set of security requirements – monitoring areas for drug deals and fights and managing access to buildings and campuses – all while promoting an environment that facilitates free movement and learning.
Unfortunately, security breaches remain a serious threat. In the United States since 2013, there have been over 250 school shootings – nearly one a week. These statistics have prompted a great focus on security at many educational institutions, not just in the US, but around the world.
A major focus of improving security at educational institutions has been the upgrade from analog to IP-based security surveillance systems, providing clearer images to identify people of interest and allow for flexibility and scalability to grow deployments as needed. Adding Senstar’s video management solutions and analytics to these systems can help safeguard children and youth by:
- Monitoring people and locations
- Gathering intelligence about staff, student, and visitor behaviour
- Centrally managing video across multiple buildings or sites
For campuses, Senstar’s perimeter intrusion detection products can assist to provide early warning of unauthorized access. Fence-mounted and covert solutions can protect perimeters of all sizes, while Senstar intelligent lighting systems illuminate perimeter areas and enhance video coverage.
