Security in our Learning Institutions

 

 

Kedacom slider

 

This month we focus on security in our learning institutions. Unlike other sectors, schools are more susceptible to the external and the internal threat than most. External threats include vandalism, robberies, assault, data theft and more. Internal threats include bullying, abuse, vandalism, theft and more.

 

Scientific studies have shown that we are so sensitive to being watched that even just a drawing or photograph of a pair of eyes influences our decisions. When a poster with eyes and the caption “Cycle Thieves - We are Watching You” was posted on a university campus, cycle theft dropped significantly. The experiment was extended to littering and loitering, and it achieved the objectives. However, there are times when footage is required, by personnel or by law to get the actual story. (Nettle et al./Operation Crackdown)

 

This month we present four solutions that are designed to help protect schools from external threats and get the “right story”. They are the IPC2211-HN-SIR30 2MP Fixed Dome Camera, the IPC2252-HN-SIR50-Z2812 Bullet Camera, the IPC425-F120-N PTZ Camera and the NVR1821-08032A 32CH 8MP.

This month our theme is surveillance to protect schools from external and internal threats. One area that is a constant thorn for authorities is vandalism by external sinister groups or even students. As outlined in our article for this month, merely knowing one is being watched alters behaviour. However, should the camera itself be the target what you need is the KEDACOM IPC2211-HN-SIR30 2MP Fixed IR Semi Dome Camera.

The KEDACOM IPC2211-HN-SIR30 2MP Fixed IR Semi Dome Camera is a solid camera with a hardened shell to protect it from vandals. It allows flexibility of placement and the clean design blends in with its environment. The camera also has a built-in microphone and with two additional mic inputs for clear audio. It comes with the H.265 codecs for significantly reduced bandwidth demands.

This camera gives those responsible for staff and security eyes on the ground for the protection of all.
