Monitoring the inside and outside of school premises using CCTV surveillance equipment is becoming a necessary aspect of ensuring the safety and security people, processes and property connected to a school campus.
A well-maintained system will ensure compliance with security regulations and also ensure you pass OFSTED with flying colours. Teacher and school governors need evidence that these systems and processes are effective and will provide appropriate alerts.
Despite its benefits, CCTV can be viewed as an intrusion so it is important to ensure the benefits and rationale for installing CCTV is communicated to those it is intended to protect. This includes strict guidelines for usage and storage of any data that is captured.
Effective and well-maintained security systems and fully trained users are essential elements of ensuring pupils are kept safe.
At Tecserv we help to ensure regular planned maintenance and training takes place and we help our school clients ensure that their systems support their security policies and procedures.
CCTV is a very good at deterring people from carrying out acts that are not allowed, such as entering a building without authorisation, causing damage to buildings or property. Most CCTV systems now record in high definition and are able to provide evidence that is admissible in court. The recordings can also be used to educate students on the impact and risk to life certain behaviours can cause.
A well installed and correctly positioned CCTV camera system will act as a deterrent against theft. It also can provide the evidence of what was stolen and who was responsible.
Surveillance cameras can be used to validate many things, from validating deliveries to tracking people movements. Correctly installed CCTV can be used provide visibility on activity areas such as school entrances, corridors, classrooms and what is being loaded into or off loaded from delivery vehicles.
The working environment of a school, university, academy or halls of residence can be very fast paced which means it can be hard for office administrators, facilities managers and school supervisors to monitor activity. CCTV can be used as an investigatory and health and safety management tool as it provides visibility on things that would ordinarily go unresolved or unreported. Surveillance systems can be used to investigate the incident thoroughly and help to prove or disprove the cause of incidents.
The remote monitoring function means that you can access your CCTV system at anytime from anywhere via a mobile device. Remote surveillance allows you to monitor your buildings, inventory, pupils and staff, from wherever you have an internet connection.
