School administrators are increasingly turning to access control systems to better manage the flow of students, staff and visitors in and around their buildings. 

Authorized individuals are issued “credentials” in the form of cards or tokens that allow them to unlock doors and enter designated areas at permitted times. When the user presents their credential at a door reader, it’s compared to a database of access privileges that establishes who can go where and when. You can make real-time changes to the access rights of any individual so that you never have to retrieve keys from discharged staff or dismissed students. Instead, you simply delete their access privileges. 

Each entry and exit event can be documented so you have a solid audit trail that can be used to investigate improper entry, theft or vandalism. 

Access control systems are entirely scalable, protecting a single building with only a few points of entry, or protecting a geographically dispersed campus with academic buildings spread across a broad area. 

Access control technology from SecuSmart provides a system that lets you better manage your campus and better protect your students and staff.

Most everyone is familiar with the aggravation and confusion created by having multiple remotes for your home entertainment system. The simplicity and convenience of having a single, common point of control for all devices are readily apparent. 

Many school administrators are realizing the simplicity and convenience of having a single, common system that combines their intrusion, fire and access control systems. All of your security related technology can be consolidated in a single, unified solution, typically managed from a central control room. As an added benefit, today’s network capability makes it possible for authorized individuals to view, monitor and control the system from any internet-connected computer. 

The single-system approach is less costly to install because there’s less equipment needed, reducing your initial investment. It provides continued savings because a single-system means less maintenance and reduced staff training.

SecuSmart can help develop a new, integrated system or provide the software needed to knit your current systems together to create an integrated system. The graphic capabilities of the software give your system managers fast, simple, point-and-click control over every aspect of your system. 

Trust SecuSmart to combine all of your security management activities into a single, high-functioning security system.

School administrators are increasingly incorporating video in their security systems. This trend is the result of decreasing costs for video technology combined with higher expectations by parents and law enforcement officials for visual documentation of incidents. 

Live video can be monitored by security personnel in real time to expand their coverage and enable quick evaluation of potential issues. Recorded video provides a valuable visual record to support investigations following an event. 

Some of the most powerful benefits of video are realized through analytics. Video feeds are constantly, automatically analyzed and appropriate action initiated. Cameras can detect movement or unusual changes in an area. Depending on the programming the system can respond by starting to record the event, focusing additional cameras on the activity, sounding an alert or other programmed esponses. 

Video analytics extends the capabilities of your security staff by automatically alerting them to potential threats as they occur. Analytics also provides enhanced visual documentation, enabling faster, more effective investigations. 

Picture how much more effective your video capabilities can be with analytics from SecuSmart.

Every student is familiar with the routine of occasional fire drills. Teaching students how to respond properly during a fire alarm is essential to ensuring that everyone safely exits the building. Of course, their safe exit depends on the timely alert provided by your school’s fire detection and alarm system.

SecuSmart provides single-building elementary schools with standalone systems, and also provides networked fire systems able to monitor an entire campus or multi-site educational system. 

Most schools deploy separate intrusion and fire system, but many are migrating to integrated systems that combine all aspects of security and life safety into a single, more easily managed system.

While you need to protect your facilities from intrusion, you also have a special need to provide strong fire protection. Arson is a leading cause of damage to education facilities.

SecuSmart can provide the control panels, sensors and alarm pulls to configure a reliable fire detection system that will maximize the safety of your students, staff and schools.

The pervasiveness of video cameras has almost created the expectation that crimes or misbehavior be captured on camera in order to successfully prosecute the perpetrator. Schools are responding by deploying more video cameras than ever, both inside and outside school buildings. 

You have an amazing variety of video technology available. Color and black & white cameras with low-light and mega -pixel capability. Intelligent mounts and motors than can automatically steer and zoom cameras to focus on unusual activity. DVRs that can store hundreds of hours of video from multiple cameras. 

Schools that deploy video typically include a monitoring location or control room where system administrators can remotely view the cameras and respond accordingly. Larger systems benefit from the addition of video analytics that automatically respond to defined events by recording it or sounding an alert. 

The right video technology can elevate the security at your school, but you need to select the right components and configure them correctly to provide an effective video surveillance and documentation system. Selecting the right video technology requires the experience of a professional security systems provider like SecuSmart.

Larger schools and many college campuses centralize their security system monitoring and control in a centralized operations center. Designing and deploying a security control room requires the guidance of true security experts. 

It’s easy for administrators to be tantalized by giant monitors and other sophisticated technology. The truly important measure of control room effectiveness is how well it enables your security staff to quickly identify and respond to threats or alarms. That requires the right technology combined in a way that creates an intuitive, easy-to-use system-control platform. 

Many control rooms incorporate software that knits together every aspect of your security system – intrusion, fire and access control – in one integrated platform. Some of these software applications provide total graphical control over your system. Security officers gain point-and-click access to every door, sensor and alarm. 

In large-scale systems, the best, most comprehensive security measures can’t deliver on their full potential unless they are managed from a well-designed, properly equipped control center. Trust the security professionals at SecuSmart to design and deploy a control room designed specifically to meet your needs.
