School security for a safe educational environment

Industries

Keep your students safe and your campuses protected. Find out how.

Current industry challenges

Now more than ever, schools and universities are faced with increasing threats to their students, personnel, buildings, and grounds. Security managers must keep track of a variety of environments: outdoor and indoor areas, playgrounds, sports fields, research laboratories, libraries, canteens, and more. With limited security budgets and a shortage of trained staff, educational institutions strive to provide an open, nurturing environment, without compromising their students’ security and privacy.

A comprehensive solution for the educational sector has to be efficient on three levels: preventing incidents from happening, mitigating damage and communication as they are happening, and during post-incident investigations.

A typical school security system consists of video surveillance equipment, including IP cameras, a video management system, access control, and a performant IT infrastructure. Educational facilities would thus greatly benefit from intelligent surveillance solutions that integrate easily with existing third-party security cameras while providing the same advanced functionality to analyze all the video footage with actionable insight in real-time.

Why Ava Video Security

Monitoring campuses to protect students, parents, and staff means balancing proactive measures with an effective response to incidents. Ava helps you identify unwanted events like vandalism, intrusion, loitering, parking violations, or people involved in suspicious acts so that you can focus on what truly matters: delivering positive academic experiences.

Increased situational awareness

Increased situational awareness

Smart Presence™ depicts people as dots on maps and live footage of persons of interest. Combine with access control to monitor hallways for a complete picture of loitering, theft, or even active shooter scenarios. Gain insights on occupancy counting in classrooms and libraries for better energy efficiency, and also for tracking social distancing when needed.

Anomaly detection in real-time

Powered by Spotlight, the dynamic video view with instant notifications draws attention to the relevant video feeds with potential risks. Identify intruder break-ins, loitering, guns, or unauthorized vehicles in real-time. Your operators can switch between live and playback with the click of a button.

Sharp images and integrated audio analytics

Sharp images and integrated audio analytics

Ava Dome and Ava 360 are school surveillance cameras that perform exceptionally well either indoors or outdoors and in any lighting conditions. The devices are suitable for different settings, such as classrooms, assembly halls, sports halls, or dormitories, and blend discreetly as interior fixtures. The integrated audio analytics identifies sound patterns and sends instant alerts in cases of broken glass, screaming, and gunshots.

Accurate search within minutes

Accurate search within minutes

Smart Search™ allows your operators to search by appearance, events, objects, similarity, or image. Recovering lost or stolen objects, such as laptops or vehicles, identifying suspicious people inside or just outside campus, locating missing students now take minutes instead of hours. With the same or fewer resources, your operators can provide compelling evidence and mitigate liability risks.
