Solving school security challenges

Your school safety challenges are complex, but your security shouldn’t be. Our comprehensive video security and access control solutions help schools remain safe and secure.

Keeping students, faculty and staff safe

The key to safer schools is campus security technology built to enable faster responses and increase situational awareness.

    Self-learning video analytics alerts you to what is happening on your campus so your team can respond instantly.

  • Locate an unauthorized individual

    Technology that sorts through footage with ease to quickly locate a specific person or vehicle of interest across an entire school site in real-time.

Smarter school security technology makes day-to-day security operations more efficient and effective.

  • Keep unauthorized people out

    Create license plate watch lists to receive security alerts when an authorized vehicle enters your school grounds.
