School Security & Visitor Management

Systems 

Schools and universities of all sizes benefit when they keep students and faculty safe. New technologies help control access to your school and track visitors across your campus.

New Technologies Help Schools Prevent Tragedies

School tragedies have prompted a new wave of technologies aimed to secure our schools and universities. Although there is no single best answer to stop an intruder, there are systems and security measures we can use to protect our children from bullying and violence. For many schools, this requires a layered approach which may include visitor management policies, access control systems, video surveillance, Automated License Plate Recognition (ALPR), and even facial recognition.

“Of course, learning is strengthened and solidified when it occurs in a safe and secure environment.”

Jean Bertrand Aristide

Stop Threats at the Door With Visitor Management & Access Control Systems

One of the easiest and most proactive ways to keep these threats at bay is to implement a visitor management system with access control. There are many benefits to switching from standard locks to access control systems.

Which Type of Access Control is Right for Your School?

Access Control systems improve visitor management by utilizing trusted technologies to help safeguard entries to the school grounds. Implementing a controlled access system may feel overwhelming but it’s quite simple when you consider the options and commit to an implementation timeline. Here are the common technologies used to verify a visitor’s identity and grant or deny access:

  • Keypads
  • Proximity cards
  • RFID badges
  • Biometric scanners – Scanners used to scan face, eyes, fingerprints, retinas, etc
  • Video Surveillance integration – Security Cameras used for facial recognition, license plates, etc.

Integrating your access control system with your security cameras makes it possible to track each person as they come and go throughout the day.  You’re able to view all of your cameras in real time or download segments to review specific events that happened months ago. With careful planning, and good visitor policy, many distractions and crimes can be prevented and the learning environment improves.

 

    Dickinson Public School made some powerful upgrades to their security and access control systems.

    6 Benefits of Access Control Systems Designed for Schools

    1. Prevent Intruders and Violence – Monitor each and every visitor as they enter the campus. Restrict access to key cards or badges where necessary.

    2. Track visitors across campus buildings from a centralized location.

    3. Lockout and lockdown capabilities – lock all doors or a single door with the press of a button. Manage protocol for shelter-in-place, external threats, internal threats, and active shooter scenarios.

    4. Schedule Lock and Unlock times – At school, open, lunch, and close times. Monitor and analyze traffic.

    5. View Status of All the Doors at Once – Locked, unlocked, or propped open.

    6. Peace of Mind for Parents, Students and Faculty
