A security solution that includes security cameras provides sound financial benefits and creates a sense of safety among employees, students and visitors.
Schools and universities contain a number of tangible and intangible assets that must be protected, particularly students, teachers and other visitors. Schools are often the victims of graffiti and vandalism – for example, in the form of broken windows – as well as break-ins, fires and theft. Vandalism often results in high costs for clean-up and cancelled lectures when the premises cannot be used or equipment goes missing.
A technical solution using security cameras can go a long way towards solving this problem. Cameras provide clear confirmation if anyone attempts to break into or set fire to the premises, and alarm operators can warn the individuals on site using speakers connected to the system. This allows such attempts to be interrupted quickly before any major damage occurs and enables security officers, police or emergency services to respond rapidly to the site.
