As school security ratchets up, 'first person a parent or visitor meets' remains key deterrent

We take our part in school safety seriously. It's getting a little crazy out there, isn't it...? Roslyn Road Elementary in Barrington is buttoned down about as tightly as a school can be these days, with a video surveillance system, buzzer-equipped doors and a drivers license scanner that checks visitors against a s*x offenders database.


Featured Product: We install the S2 NetVR because it offers advanced video forensics and tight integration of access control and monitoring with video. Control over your video and physical security matters. Call us with questions about this product or installation.

Security systems and school panic buttons have immediate effect on dire situations

Though a gunman gained entry in yesterday's suburban Atlanta school intruder situation, it's been suggested that both immediate police presence AND an amazing staff member carried the day. Makes us even MORE thankful for the increasingly sophisticated security systems we're able to install for our clients! Isn't it nice to read a success story instead of a tragedy?! Wheew! The Sandy Hook shooting is spurring the use of school panic buttons to call police, with at least 400 schools in a dozen states, from California to Maine, adding the devices.


Identity theft happens in the field of education as well. Best to act before you need to REact, isn't it?

Are Central Stations the Center of the Alarm Universe?

Are self-monitored security devices simply noise makers unable to trigger an action in the event of a real emergency? What works for your organization?  Over the centuries, humans’ knowledge of the “center of the universe” has evolved.
