School Security: How To Improve Current Systems


Providing students with a safe place to learn is essential.

Over the last several years, there has been a rise in school violence. In fact, vandalism and other harmful threats have disturbed many schools throughout the nation. As a result, school officials and administrators are looking for security options that could improve the current security measures in place to provide a safe environment for students and faculty.

Dynamic Combination Of Audio And Video Monitoring

Looking for additional security measures for school systems? Look no further than a unique combination of audio and video monitoring. Traditionally, school districts around the nation have been utilizing video monitoring cameras as their sole security system. However, integrating audio into their current security system could do wonders for the safety and security of all students and staff alike. In addition to ensuring that basic security needs are met, the integration of audio into security monitoring has a myriad of benefits for schools.

Preventative Measures

Audio monitoring is a wonderful addition to any security system in schools throughout the nation. Having the opportunity to communicate in real-time with a potential trespasser is a creative and unique approach towards targeting individuals who are not authorized to be on the school campus. In fact, this intimidation effect can be accomplished by the presence of audio such as a warning message when the system detects a trespasser.

Audio Analytics

For school security officials establishing the most secure campus can be done with the addition of audio analytics. Since schools deal with a variety of risks on a regular basis, audio analytics, often referred to as sound detection software, can analyze and identify any sound in real-time while simultaneously sending an alert out to school personnel and law enforcement alike. This instant notification provides schools with an added way to provide information as needed to law enforcement so that they can arrive sooner rather than later.
