What constitutes good electronic school security systems?
School security systems in Surrey from Securus (UK) Ltd – Intruder Alarms
Out of school hours, when a site is unstaffed, schools need to be able to stop trespassers, acts of vandalism and burglaries. By using an intruder alarm that is linked to a range of detection devices on doors and windows, this can help to deter potential intruders from entering the school premises and removing and / or damaging property. The latest generation of intruder alarms can be monitored and controlled remotely through any internet enabled device such as a laptop, tablet or smartphone, as well as being monitored via a central monitoring station.
And during school hours, all schools have a basic requirement to safely contain the children in their care, whilst also keeping them safe from unwanted intruders. The key to a good school security system is the ability to monitor and control access, and there are a range of electronic school security solutions that can help to achieve this. When used together, they can provide a robust yet unobtrusive school security system to secure any size of nursery, school or college premises
School security systems in Surrey by Securus (UK) Ltd – Door Entry and Access Control
Door entry and access control systems allow the monitoring and controlling of who are entering a school. A door Entry System allows reception or security staff who are monitoring the school entrance to grant visitors entry based on audio or video identification. An Access Control System will allow pre-defined staff, pupils and visitors (for example contractors) to enter the school premises and / or specified areas within the school, using a key card or a fob. The access control system also keeps a record of all entrances and exits and the times they took place, providing a real-time log of who is on the premises.
School security systems in Surrey – CCTV surveillance by the experts at Securus (UK) Ltd
Another important aspect of good electronic school security systems is the use of CCTV. The latest generation of high-resolution external and internal CCTV cameras will record and monitor activity in and around a school’s grounds. This not only allows for the identification of possible intruders during school hours, but also allows for identifying trespassers or burglars should an intrusion or theft actually take place.
CCTV Cameras are now available in a wide variety of styles and sizes, which allow for maximum coverage with a minimum of intrusion, both from an aesthetic and a psychological perspective. And like the latest intruder alarms, IP CCTV can be monitored and controlled by staff who are off-site, through any internet enabled device such as a tablet or smartphone.
