How Schools Are Increasing Their Security

Feb 2, 2024 | Security & Video Surveillance

Taking a serious look at school safety and instituting proactive measures to keep students and faculty safe is more important than ever before. While violence at schools and campuses throughout our country is on the rise, there are innovative and state-of-the-art solutions to keep everyone safe and secure. Keystone Fire & Security offers a variety of security systems, from door monitoring systems in Allentown, PA to video surveillance and other tools to add to your school. Our top priority is to keep everyone safe, prepared, and ready to take action in the event something unexpected happens. In addition to policies and procedures on behalf of the school’s administration, installing innovative systems that add protective layers is key. Take a look at how schools are increasing their security and how you can too.

Door Monitoring and Access Control Systems

Long gone are the days when doors are open during school hours without monitoring who is coming and going. Door monitoring systems are designed to control who can enter the school and specific areas inside the school building. While locks and keys are helpful, they aren’t the best solution. Adding a card entry system gives faculty and staff admittance into the school and prevents just anyone from entering. The same is true for students at the elementary and high school levels from leaving without approval. The ability to see and video who and when someone entered the building is important, too. We provide user-friendly, intuitive stand-alone door controllers for fully integrated enterprise solutions. Our access control systems in Philadelphia are designed for maximum security at cost-effective prices. They are also designed for scalability for future changes and needs.

Intrusion Detection Systems Work For You 24/7

In addition to regular open hours, installing systems that can watch what is happening both inside and outside the school building is important. Intrusion detection systems alert security when motion sensors are activated, windows or doors are broken, or other unauthorized access is happening in the building. This 24/7 detection provides real-time monitoring and, in the event of a break-in or unauthorized presence, will generate an immediate response and alert security.

Surveillance Cameras Capture Clear Images

Video technology is a valuable deterrent to potential intruders thanks to the real-time capabilities it offers. Recordings offer valuable information for identifying wrongdoers and investigating incidents. Our video surveillance systems capture clear images while performing complex decision-making. This 24/7 proactive threat deterrence and real-time intelligence captures the unexpected even when you aren’t there.

Emergency Communication Systems Alerts Everyone

Emergency communication systems include intercoms, panic alarms, and mass notification systems that inform everyone in the event of an emergency or break-in.
