Designed exclusively for deaf and hard of hearing students, and with both residential and live on-campus programs, it is essential for the American School for the Deaf to maintain a secure learning environment.
By deploying a comprehensive Motorola Solutions Video Security & Analytics system, the American School for the Deaf sought to gain expansive video coverage that provided enough clarity to decipher American Sign Language, an access control system that could be centrally operated, and real-time alerts of potentially critical events on campus.
Avigilon Control Center (ACC) video management software was chosen to provide a centralized platform where security personnel can easily monitor and manage video, with built-in Avigilon Appearance Search and Unusual Motion Detection (UMD) technologies that enable them to locate specific individuals, incidents or evidence in minutes instead of hours.
For a campus with 24-hour activity, the Access Control Manager (ACM) system also ensures that security personnel can centrally monitor entry and exit points across campus.
“Our Avigilon solution is leaps and bounds faster than our previous system. It’s user-friendly and intuitive, and we can quickly train our staff to use it which helps us ensure we have supervision around our residences, daycare and other sensitive areas.”
