Protecting the well-being of students and staff is the primary concern for schools and universities today. Schools facing challenges, such as violence or vandalism on campus, find security cameras an essential aid to identifying and resolving issues as they arise.
But what happens when the video surveillance system isn’t easy to use or administer? Video is the best tool a school has to maintain and create a safe learning environment, but many schools find that getting access to video isn’t easy and replacing or upgrading cameras can come at a huge cost.
Schools and universities are putting up security cameras at a record pace, but often these video systems are not monitored, need repairs, include a mix of different systems across campuses, aren’t easy to manage, and are difficult to use and access.
What frequently happens after a camera is installed is that no one monitors its health and whether video is being recorded, until a year or two later when an incident happens and there is a need to review the footage.
In many cases, video might not be available because the camera failed, or could be useless for investigative purposes because the recorder had failed. In other instances, access to video cameras in only available from specific computers running the right software, which may not provide a unified view of all cameras across multiple buildings. This results in thousands of dollars spent on complicated systems that waste time, resources, and money.
