Benefits of School Security Cameras

Protect Students & Faculty: School security camera systems keep track of everyone entering and exiting school entrances, making it easy to spot intruders and prevent unauthorized visitors from entering school campuses.With cameras deployed across campus—from parking lots, to stadiums, to hallways—it’s simple to monitor open areas that might be vulnerable to crime.Having cameras on campus also deters poor student behaviors, such as bullying, and can improve overall experiences on campus.

Quick Incident Resolution: More so than ever, parents are getting involved in ensuring that they’re sending students to safe schools.With video footage and smart search filters available, school administrators can quickly find recorded video of key events and effectively address behavioral concerns or conflict between students.In the event of emergencies, school faculty and authorized users can send live feeds of cameras instantly, reducing the time it takes to communicate with law enforcement and parents.

Proactively Deter Threats: With smart video technology, gain better insight about activity happening on school grounds.Get alerted of unusual activities—such as cars or people appearing on campus after school hours—without having to actively monitor school cameras.In other instances, school security cameras can be used as a tool to help teachers and instructional aides anticipate misbehavior and take actions to potentially prevent it.
